Sir: Anti-road protesters should take heart from the recent scientific report on decreasing male fertility ("Sperm count drops 25% in younger men", 23 February). Since temperature is crucial to sperm production, the snug conditions of the motorcar make men who spend long hours driving at greatest risk of infertility, particularly if they also favour tight underpants.
The protesters, therefore, need only hang out in the cool air of the treetops and bide their time, in the sure knowledge that the future is theirs.
