Time’s nearly up

I am glad that Lawrie Brownlee replied to my letter (Opinion, May 17) about UKIP’s attitude to the environment and the economy, because the issues should be thoroughly debated before it is too late.

Any sensible scientist would recognise the need for clean, green energy, and that we cannot continue pumping out greenhouse gases into the atmosphere without eventually upsetting the balance of nature.

The time lag we currently enjoy will not last beyond the end of this century. If we, therefore, pursue a policy of “business as usual” woe betide the next generation!
