Why 2021 could be turning point for tackling climate change

Countries only have only a limited time in which to act if the world is to stave off the worst effects of climate change. Here are five reasons why 2021 could be a crucial year in the fight against global warming.

Covid-19 was the big issue of 2020, there is no question about that. But I'm hoping that, by the end of 2021, the vaccines will have kicked in and we'll be talking more about climate than the coronavirus.

2021 will certainly be a crunch year for tackling climate change. Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary General, told me he thinks it is a "make or break" moment for the issue...

Make your resolutions a part of the climate solution

What kind of a year have you had? This enquiry is usually made in polite conversation, with little expectation of a significant response, but given the rather momentous events of this year it may well now elicit some longer and perhaps more emotional responses; some sad, some angry, some perhaps inspiring.


2020 has been a momentous year, a year of highs and lows without doubt but as we near its end we can perhaps look forward to the coming year with hope for a brighter future. Covid-19 will hopefully be a thing of the past, we will come to terms with whatever Brexit means for us but what of climate change; how will we ensure the seeds of hope that are being sown by leaders around the world, with their more ambitious targets for reducing carbon emissions, become the solid roots on which we grow sustainable ways of living?

Controlling emissions

UK 'has technology' for zero carbon


Eliminating greenhouse gas emissions in the UK is achievable with current technology, according to a new report.


What would carbon neutrality mean for the UK?


A quarter of Britain covered in trees, quieter roads, healthier lifestyles and holidays by high-speed rail. 



Governments disappointing response to Bradford-Halifax Greenway (B2H2)

The lack of government support to create a greenway via the Queensbury Tunnel demonstrates their general lack of ambition and foresight in addressing environmental projects of this kind.


We need to tackle climate change but not this way….

Jemima Parker, Chair of Zero carbon Harrogate looks at the impact of the Covid-19 lockdown on carbon emissions and asks how the positives can be captured and taken forward, as we begin the long and difficult task of rebuilding the local economy?


Government to urge us all to walk and cycle more

Those people who need to travel into a workplace will be urged to consider choosing more active ways to travel like walking and cycling.


The intention is to take pressure off roads and public transport networks.


“I look forward to working with Zero Carbon Harrogate to help make our town increasingly environmentally friendly.”

Andrew Jones MP for Harrogate
