Though we hear every day about the impacts of climate change, which affect all of us negatively, it is a subject that divides society. During Václav Havel’s lifetime it was not yet clear to what extent mankind was influencing climate and whether it was not a natural cycle. Nevertheless Václav Havel posed the question: “Doesn’t waiting for confirmation of this, for irrefutable certainty, rob us of the time needed for measures that are relatively painless compared to those we would have to undergo in the case of further delays?” He turned out to be right. Science has progressed since then and today there is no doubt as to man’s complete influence on the current global warming.

Unfortunately the time when relatively painless measures could be introduced has passed and irreversible natural changes have begun. The only way out is to move away from fossil fuels and to modernise all sectors. That is the only way we can pass on a sustainable Earth to our children and grandchildren.
