The energy required for heating, lighting, and powering equipment in an ordinary school classroom releases about 4,000 kg of CO2 every year – enough to fill four hot-air balloons 10 metres in diameter.

How Scotland and all other countries choose to change to a low carbon/clean energy future is extremely important to the success of combating climate change.
