With all these enormous changes (population, agricultural, use of fossil fuels) concentrated into such a short period of time, we have unwittingly begun a massive experiment with the system of this planet itself.

Margaret Thatcher – yes, the very same – wrote about her concerns about climate change from carbon dioxide emissions in 1988, like some common treehugger. This may wrinkle some brains on both sides of the aisle, and Gizmodo UK’s feature on Thatcher, the scientist, is well worth a read.

With any luck, Lord Bell and Dr Bong can team up and fight for the environment.
