The author reflects on global warming and climate change. According to the author, nobody knows if initiatives to prevent climate change are working. LogicaCMG commissioned a pan-European study into the energy knowledge and usage of more than 10,000 consumers which found that over 55 percent of people look toward utility companies for climate change advice. The author asserted that the British government has given little help to utility companies when it comes to tackling climate change.
