It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year again. It’s all Christmas trees and turkeys outside and before we know it, we’ll be chiming in the new year. 2008 has been an exciting, fascinating whirlwind of a year, with the Climate Change Bill becoming the Climate Change Act, making it legal and binding, committing the UK government to reducing the country’s carbon dioxide emissions by 80% by 2050, and in the US, president-elect Barack Obama raising hopes of reversing some of the environmentally destructive policies of the old administration.
If any of us are honest, when we get time to reflect the whole situation can seem daunting and scary. But right now, writing this and looking back on the year, I feel so positive, almost elated at how far we’ve all come. I think this new year, before I rush in to making all the usual rounds of resolutions, I’m going to take a moment to say well done to all the people I know who work hard to make a difference to the world. We know now that even little things can add up and that with enough time, energy and pressure in the right places, we really can make a massive difference. So three cheers to us. We are all brilliant.
