The author suggests several measures to be taken by the British utilities industry to deal with the climate change. She thinks that the contingency measures during the ban on flights caused by volcanic eruptions in Iceland in April 2010 is not a good approach. She also thinks that the grit piles made during the unexpected snow and ice storms during winter were not practical at all. She suggests that measures taken should be for long term use and with cost-benefit considerations.
