Energy and climate change are two of the most important issues affecting the UK economy. It is no exaggeration to say that our economy is built upon energy that comes mainly from carbon-based fuels, but the emissions from these fuels are causing temperature increases in the environment that cannot be allowed to continue indefinitely. Making a safe transition to a lower carbon economy is, however, a major challenge that requires maintaining acceptable costs for consumers and industry despite geopolitical, economic and technological uncertainties. Come and hear Angus MacNeil MP, the new Chair of the Select Committee on Energy and Climate Change talk about such issues and also comment on the outcome of the 2015 Paris Climate Change Conference.
