|The climate crisis represents one of the biggest threats to human society we have seen in the 21st century. The UK Parliament has declared a national climate emergency, committing to a 100% reduction of its carbon emissions by 2050.There are many people in Rutland trying to change the way we live, work and shop so that we can reduce carbon emissions and have a less harmful and a more positive effect on the environment.
