In The Times, a week ago, we had the news the world is quite literally getting greener – fertilised by that pollutant, co2.

Greens of course ignore the fact that farmers, for years, have been pumping co2 into their plastic greenhouses in order to get bigger crops of flowers, vegetables and fruit – how else do we get all those lovely punnets of British grown strawberries.
