Terry Macalister interviewed Prof Kevin Anderson in order to gain a better understanding of his views about the required urgency of tackling climate change. In the third and final part of this interview, Anderson proposes three things that need to rapidly take place if the goals of the Paris Agreement are to be met. These are: (1) The wealthy in society need to change how much energy they consume, (2) Government needs to demand very stringent energy efficiency standards, and (3) we require a Marshall-style reconstruction of the energy system. Anderson argues that the retrofitting of buildings, the electrification of our infrastructure and the rollout of renewables technologies would represent a jobs agenda for the next three decades.
