He who smelt it, dealt it?
Sir Philip Stott rants principally as a global warming skeptic. However, in a recent Times column, the bard of the EnviroWatch blog has started to cover his bases in a most transparent manner. Although he still vehemently disbelieves in any global warming theories, apparently the real culprit behind climate change resides in the massive amounts of concrete, farmland, and terrain/waterway modification that have occurred during modern times.
Don't have the on-line article, but here is a link to some quotes.
To put it bluntly, Sir Stott thinks it unseemly to drop trou' and take a dump in a crowded room, but letting it rip with a "silent but deadly" is perfectly acceptable behavior. Philip, please don't be blaming the dog.
