Anyone who saw the Hollywood movie Gladiator will remember its villain: the demented young Roman emperor Commodus, played by Joaquin Phoenix. The most vivid historical picture we have of Commodus is by Edward Gibbon in his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire; Gibbon hated him because he felt it was with Commodus that the Roman rot set in, after four emperors who had ruled wisely and well, the last being Commodus's own philosopher-father, Marcus Aurelius.

There are are still large sections of the general population determined to stick their heads in the sand rather than confront the overwhelming scientific consensus that climate change is not some vague hypothesis but a grim present reality. But the world's leading scientists are convinced. So much so that, in many ways, concern for the environment has largely become concern about climate change. In one sense this is quite right, for the tipping point to avert disaster is coming rapidly upon us, if indeed it is not already here. There is no more urgent issue for action, international, national and local.

Today's report on breast cancer is good news for women and good news for the UK. Over the past 20 years, deaths from the disease have fallen more rapidly in this country than anywhere in Europe (save Iceland), with a 35 per cent decline in the mortality rate. Earlier diagnosis, advances in surgery, better drug treatment and increased access to specialists are the keys to improved survival. But, as the UK started with the highest breast cancer death rate in the world in the late 1980s, celebrations should be tempered by remembrance of the thousands of women who might have survived if they had lived elsewhere in Europe.
