Don't get me wrong, Doug was a good mate, really funny. But he didn't half rant about global warming and the greedy fat selfish businessmen who didn't care about their own kids never mind anybody else's, who took profits from industries chucking crap into the air, making it hotter.
I'd stop people making profits, me, Doug would say.
I wasn't sure how that would help, but I guess it must be better than what we've ended up with.
"All we can do now," Doug sighed, "is pray."
He was right, as usual. But it was too hot even for praying.
