CO2 warming experts influenced by money?
It is good to see some interest in manmade global warming [‘What are writer’s qualifications’, Letters, Jan 18].
I freely admit that I am not a trained climatologist, but being a Fellow of the Institute of Measurement and Control does give me a scientific outlook and some appreciation of feed-forward, etc.
My point is that the weight of comment is so heavily in favour of the story of global heating being due to an increase in CO2, it seems suspiciously as though these ‘experts’ are strongly influenced by the financial assistance they get in grants and support from the ‘green blob’. It has been proved that Michael Mann ‘adjusted’ real records to produce his infamous ‘J’ curve. Why?
I remember the 1970s when the same experts were promising thick ice everywhere.
It is well worth reading the blog Not A Lot Of People Know That by Paul Homewood to get a contrary view. How many decades must we wait to find out if the theory is true? RG Barton, St Martin’s Hill, Canterbury
