David and Polly were among some 25,000 protestors in London’s Trafalgar Square calling for urgent action on the issue of climate change on Friday.
As you know, David has always supported environmental causes, and Friday’s public demonstration was the latest opportunity to lend his support, albeit in typically unassuming fashion.
Stop Climate Chaos, a coalition of various unions and organisations, is calling for a Climate Bill to make it a legal requirement that UK greenhouse gas emissions fall by at least 3% each year.
The I Count campaign also calls on Tony Blair to ensure the irreversible decline of global greenhouse gas emissions by 2015 and to deliver assistance to developing countries, so that they may be given access to clean energy in order to meet their developmental needs.

I’d love to know your thoughts on this hot (no pun intended) topic. Let us know how we can all do our bit.
There’s a chat going on right now if you want to join us in the chatroom. It will be open until midday (UK time). Everyone’s welcome.
Here’s the latest from Guy…
What are listening to right now (or if not right now, what’s your current listening)? (Nickster)
Right now? Celia Cruz, ‘Queen of Latin Rhythm’. (That’s the album title, not an opinion.)
You’ve played with some of the most famous bands in the world since you were just a boy. Has the young Guy ever had the anxiety of performance, playing close to those geniuses of music and in so many different styles (from Pink Floyd to Roxy Music and so on)? How much have you studied for that, or did you do that just using your heart? (Lucia)
Young, maybe. Old, no. I didn’t really study for either of those artists as it was music I knew and loved anyway. That’s if I understood the question.
Are you familiar with My Morning Jacket, from Kentucky? (Will)
No. Should I be?
With which band would you like to perform in the future? (Kees Nijpels)
The Who, Peter Gabriel.
If you could play bass for any musician (not including any member of Pink Floyd or anyone you may have played with in the past) either alive or dead, who would it be? (Dom)
Pete Townshend, Peter Gabriel, Syd Barrett, Jimi Hendrix.
