Climate Debate with Ed Miliband, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change

Irene Schleining, Director of Whale of a Time said, that "I think that we got to really push the reasons for change. There is a lot of controversy and polarisation on climate change issues. We need to put the emphasis on the question of should we maintain “business as usual” or is this also a change of consciousness. We need to realise that climate change is not a business question anymore because should we win the business instead of nature then we’ll be out of business soon. I think that priority has to be given to the fact that nature is not going to play our games. Nature is going to play by the law of nature. We’re loosing species at an unprecedented rate. What value has the atmosphere to our lives. What value has an ecosystem and biodiversity for our atmosphere? I think that these are the questions that should be taken into consideration for a sustainable future."
