GLRPPR Sector Resource: The Rise of the Machines

The Rise of the Machines

A review of energy using products in the home from the 1970s to today. Climate change has become one of the most talked about social issues of our time and makes the news headlines on a daily basis, but few people make the link between our changing climate and the energy that we use at home. Yet household energy use accounts for more than a quarter of the UK's total carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions - a large contributor to man made climate change.
