?As some of you may know I work for an Energy Company.

Every day I am reminded that climate change is real and is the greatest challenge of our time.

Recent events in the UK has put climate change at the top of the political agenda.

It is very important that we all do our part and it's the small things that make a difference. If we all lower our carbon footprint it will make a difference.

So, if you aren't going to use your computer tonight switch it right off please. 

Does other device in your home or office really need to be on stand-by?
Do you have to make every trip in your car?
Does heat escape from you house?
Do you have to leave lights on?
Are you using energy saving bulbs or other energy saving devices?

Did you know in the UK if we didn't have any devices on stand by a night we could switch off a whole power station!

Now if that Power station was Drax, thats enough power for 7 million homes saved!

I'm not going to get all preachy we know whats at stake here, but every little bit really does help.

Cheers and thanks for listening.
