Very often, skepticism is useful. However, when we are looking at the long term health of our planet and, therefore, the future well-being of our children and grandchildren, surely we should take warnings about climate change and other types of environmental pollution seriously?

My personal opinion is that analysts can play with the data all they like, but it's plain to me that our winters are more mild, Spring happens several weeks earlier than it used to, sea levels have noticeably risen in low-lying areas, glaciers have retreated significantly, all kinds of pollution are evidently affecting us a lot more and so on.

We can't go on like this.
