Live Earth

I am what you might call an eco-skeptic; not convinced that global warming is caused by human behaviour. I take the view that the planet is big enough to look after itself and that it will still be here after we've gone for good.

But if I did believe that we could make such a difference, and wanted to convince the world by appearing in Live Earth, I'd be embarrassed to admit, with Katie Melua, Duran Duran, Corrine Bailey Rae, James Blunt and Jon Bon Jovi, in the Radio Times, that flying round the world in pursuit of even greater wealth and success, was the one environmentally unfriendly habit I could not give up.

It does rather take the edge off the message.
