Letter: ‘Act now’ reply



In response to James Henderson’s letter (published in Current Publishing newspapers), I have to say that he does not study peer-reviewed research on climate cycles as I do. I have never been associated with an energy company. Climate change is real and has been for 4 1/2 billion years. Primary causes of climate cycles include the sun’s galactic rays, sun spots and flares, not CO2.

An international group of 500 distinguished climate researchers sent a letter to the UN Secretary General on climate change:

“There is no climate emergency. CO2 is not a pollutant. It is essential to all life on Earth. More CO2 is beneficial to all life on Earth; additional CO2 in the air has increased the yields of crops worldwide.

“Global warming has not increased natural disasters. There is no statistical evidence that it is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts, sea levels, nor making them more frequent. There is no emergency.”
