Over the last eight years, it has been interesting to experience first-hand how public attitudes have changed. Initially, there was a good deal of scepticism about whether there were indeed any observed changes in the global climate. This was followed by a couple of years in which people seemed to think the issue had been settled and it was obvious that the global climate was changing. In recent years, amongst a wide acceptance that `something is happening', people have been concerned about whether there is anything we can do. But amongst this concern - partly stimulated by the `Climate-Gate' furore - there has been an emergence of a group with an almost militant sceptical stance that I simply don't understand. So why am I am concerned?
