But how are we to reverse the trend? It would require millions of us to vote with our feet thousands of times, to embrace inconvenience on a daily basis, to get unnecessarily rained on repeatedly. Either that or we need politicians, the people who make planning laws, to impose that inconvenience upon us for our own good and in defiance of business interests. Maybe they will. Personally I can’t imagine hell freezing over until Satan puts a punitive tax on emissions.
