Local action: Switch off fortnight

As global climate talks like Durban and Copenhagen continue to simply talk a lot of hot air with no binding action and big business holding their hands in their pockets trying to scrabble around for a few coppers to keep the economy going at whatever cost, it looks increasingly likely that it is up to individual to mitigate the effects of climate change.

Pleasingly, the MTS school Sustainability Committee are part of 'Switch off Fortnight' and tomorrow the majority of teachers and support staff will reduce their energy consumption! It is similar to shutdown day -, and it is a step in the right direction by taking the initiative and taking responsibility.
