What should I do concerning energy?

The Issue Wiltshire College
The predominant energy sources in the UK are based on fossil fuels, the use of which contributes to climate change. Wiltshire College contributes over 1.3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent to the atmosphere every year through its electricity use alone. The College is currently calculating its carbon footprint, but information about each site's energy efficiency is displayed at each College Reception area. We have a target to reduce energy use by 4% during 2009/10, and 15% over five years.
