Positive outcomes from good environmental management.
"The environment in the UK has been improving over the last 10 or 15 years – I'm thinking about air and water quality and looking after our land. Part of that is down to the hard work of the Environment Agency. Look at the major successes: the dramatic reduction in sulphur dioxide emissions; reductions in nitrogen oxide levels; reduction in the discharge of pollutants to rivers; and improved water quality, which has seen fish return to rivers from the Thames to the Mersey. There are otters in every county in England, which couldn't have been said a few years ago."

When researchers asked young children to figure out an experiment using cause and effect, they did a much better job than young adults. That may be because their thinking is more flexible and fluid.
