CLIMATE CHANGE is one of the top drawer issues of our day; right up there with the global financial crisis. Governments compete on reducing emissions; individuals abridge their ‘carbon footprint’; companies – from car manufacturing to petroleum to tobacco – are all going green.

Is the hype worth the depth; is it mere political correctness to talk green or are we really faced with a climate crisis?
