Green bean-counting.

Few, if any, accountants would take kindly to being offered financial advice by a scientist. Why, then, do we feel we know more about matters such as global warming and climate change than the experts who have spent the best part of their lives studying such matters?

While Alan Orme (Letters, May) may be understandably worried about the financial implications of climate change, I suspect that he, like most of us bean-counters, doesn't know enough about the subject to offer an informed opinion.
