Climate change used to be something that we spoke about in the abstract, as an unknown future threat. The reality of climate change is no longer deniable – it is already here. The idea of a ‘Just Transition’ recognises that responding to climate change will be a mix of positive opportunities and necessary changes. It acknowledges that we will only be successful if we find a way forward which is fair to everyone.
