Maybe since I’ve become an uncle this year, and many of my friends are having children, I’m starting to feel guilty about not shouting about the effects of environmental damage – after all, those children are the ones who are going to have to live with our mistakes. How could I look them in the face in twenty, thirty years and say: “Yeah, I know the science said it was going to happen, but I didn’t do anything about it when I had the chance.”
So, apologies if you were hoping for a little more book talk at the moment.
