In answer to John Milne, who asks (Letters, 11 January), for details of expert opinion against the putative relevance in causing climate changes of anthropogenic global warming (AGW), he should consider the names of the Global Warming Policy Foundation’s academic advisory panel, in particular those of Professors Freeman Dyson and Richard Lindzen and Dr Matt Ridley, then refer to their published work.
One should also remember Albert Einstein famously stating that, were he ever in error scientifically, only one contrary, correct opinion would suffice to negate his view!
As to my own “agenda,” it is that those in political charge and scientists must be guided by the truths regarding AGW rather than the near-hysterical warnings so often voiced by climate catastrophists, notably ex-us vice-president Al Gore.
Otherwise we in the UK will continue to misuse our resources on a very costly wild goose chase, with no chance of preventing AGW.
(DR) CHARLES WARDROP Viewlands Road West, Perth The Green fanatics with their Climate Change Act are lifewreckers for the 4,500 workers who will soon lose their jobs at Jaguar Land Rover, plus, of course, the 1,000 who have already done so because of politicians deciding that petrol and diesel cars would be phased out just to please the fantasies of their Green friends.
Already because of expensive Green electricity we have lost aluminium manufacture, papermaking, Michelin tyres and so on. Does nobody notice this damage, or is Green a new religion that does not have any economic or social responsibility?
