It’s only up in the Andean mountains that you see how the glaciers have been devastated by our changing climate; and now it is visibly affecting the people living nearby. 40% of Peruvian glaciers have disappeared over the last 4 decades. Standing under these giant rivers of ice, it clear that whatever changes any one person can make is not here. The difference that a wind turbine can make to an entire family, by lighting even just one light bulb, is incredibly powerful. Some of the complex social dynamics of urbanisation are visible from the rural perspective; renewable energy could alter these for the better through education. This is not specific to Peru, but is relevant across the whole world.
