We must address our problems in the UK, and urgently, before trying to solve those of the wider world. Indeed we must do this to set an example of what can be done.
New nuclear power stations are not a solution to the UK's energy needs. Much improved energy efficiency is essential and needs far more support.
Similarly, with many other problems, attempted solutions will never work globally until they are seen to work locally.
By all means think global, but we must act local.
If we cannot convince our existing politicians, then we must all become politicians ourselves to save the world.
