Tabloid Revolution: Three million people will have choked on their cornflakes this morning when they read Pete's column in the Sun. See attached. "We - that is humanity - have only a couple of years left to act if we are to stop catastrophic climate change causing the deaths of hundreds of millions of people." In The Sun.
