Tony Blair was accused yesterday of "muddle-headedness" as he told the world that he had no intention of giving up flying to far-flung holiday destinations, and he suggested that technology and science would get us out of the climate change mess we're in...
Quotes from Mr Blair's interview with Sky News included:
"It's like telling people you shouldn't drive anywhere"
"I'm not going to be in a situation of saying I'm not going to take holidays abroad or use air-travel. It's just not practical."

Or should they carry on jetting halfway round the world? (After all, an aeroplane a couple of times a year is nothing when there are all these factories in China pumping out nasty greenhouse gases!)
And speaking of greenhouse gases... The EU have announced new plans today to tackle climate change... Read all about them here... It's well worth having a look at the comments people have sent in as well - some interesting views!
