Half a century of sleepwalking towards climate change


I'm sorry to have to say that I am appalled at the complacency of Ben Derbyshire's response and most of the others who have commented. Bill Bordass is trying to wake architects up to their professional responsibility to carry out careful checks on the performance of their buildings to ensure they aren't destructive of this precious planet, and the response is basically 'well I care so little that I'm not going to recognise that I have a duty of care to carry out these checks myself. I'll take my money and run.' Sorry but that way of thinking is unworthy of someone with all the privileges that go with being a professional in a rich and highly polluting country that owes a lot for the consequences of 300 years of damage.
