Everyone’s got something to say about the environment. Hands are wrung in response to stories of melting ice shelves, rising sea levels, escalating species extinctions and imminent runaway global warming.

Blame is laid elsewhere, and we wait for solutions from someone, somewhere. We want the Government to sort it out on our behalf, industry to invent magic bullets and, failing that, maybe our children, so reassuringly eco-savvy these days, to clean things up in our wake. After all, if things are that bad someone will rectify things, won’t they?
