  • Coping with climate change
  • Mitigation strategies
    • National govt actions
      • Renewable energy sources e.g. wind power - v. expensive, NIMBY protests
      • National govt energy-saving schemes e.g. UK promotes low-energy lightbulbs + Wales charges 5p for plastic bags (promotes re-use) = little impact on emissions
      • Nuclear power = cleaner
    • Individual actions
      • Recycling - less in landfills, transportation + treatment increase GHG emissions
  • Adaptation strategies
    • UK
      • UK Thames Flood Barrier - protection against storm surges, 2030 - new barrier (£4b)
        • EA - floodproof homes

  • Individual actions
    • Recycling - less in landfills, transportation + treatment increase GHG emissions
  • Loft insulation, turn down thermostat
    • UK Thames Flood Barrier - protection against storm surges, 2030 - new barrier (£4b)
      • EA - floodproof homes
    • SE England - droughts more common
      • UK
        • Chelsea Flower Shower - rainwater barrels for gardens
      • Bangladesh
        • Adaptation strategies
          • Salt-tolerant rice seed
          • New schools on stilts - avoid floodwaters
          • Bay of Bengal sea defences raised
        • Chelsea Flower Shower - rainwater barrels for gardens
        • Salt-tolerant rice seed
        • New schools on stilts - avoid floodwaters
