As corny as it may sound, you get out of life what you put into it, and Carbon Week is a great example of this principle. Aston has been a leading university for graduate employment success for over 20 years, and offering Carbon Week to students like myself is another way of helping us to increase our awareness and be one step ahead of the game.
Whether man-made climate change is occurring or not, there are few who would argue against a move towards low-carbon energy generation. One way or another, carbon emissions must be cut. Forget the tired anti-nuclear rhetoric and the ridiculous claims that a Fukushima-style disaster could hit the UK. Third generation nuclear is the way forward and the new reactors planned at Hinkley Point are the first step in the right direction.
