The latest Thunking to get you thinking
    2C, or not 2C?
That is the question.

Climate experts have said that the '2C threshold' is now the ultimate limit for global warming. And as this year's COP26 summit in Glasgow nears closer, so too does the dreaded rise in worldwide temperatures.

While international powerhouses have a duty to help calm the climate crisis, real change will only come once we can help ourselves.

This month's THUNK looks at all things climate, consumerism and collective action.


  Curbing our own consumption is the only way to kick climate change  
  Is top-down really the best way to tackle climate change? Planner, Josh Fardell, talks about the upcoming COP26 summit and the steps we all need to take if we’re to avoid 2C.  
Josh recommends
  "My book recommendation for this month is tied very closely to the theme and I even mention it in my thought piece, but it's called "The Day the World Stops Shopping" and it's a somewhat dystopian look at what might happen if we were to suddenly end our rampant consumerism."
