And it’s not easy to successfully engage a behavioural change programme, especially when behaviour changes need some sacrifices and utility loss, such as, in climate change case, travelling less, eating less meat, buying less electronically stuff and so on.

The Conundrum - David OWEN

The book about Energy Efficiency all European leaders should read

There are people like Jean-Marc JANCOVICI or David OWEN, who try to rectify journalists mistakes, approximations and falsehood.
