Copy of a letter sent to Ruislip Northwood MP Nick Hurd (Con).

AS YOU know from all of the letters and emails that I have sent you over the last few years, I have been looking at the conflicting views on global warming and climate change.

It will come as no surprise to you that I still see no case whatsoever in claims made that global warming is caused by man.

In fact no global temperature increase has taken place for the last 10 years and it has been falling for seven years.

As for climate change, that is something that has been occurring ever since the world came into being and is experienced by us all every time the weather changes.

In this country we have always had unpredictable weather and despite sophisticated computer modelling and satellite observations the Met Office cannot predict our weather correctly for just a few weeks ahead. So it seems sensible to conclude that man will never be able to control the weather.

The Government, and yourself in the opposition party,seem to believe that carbon emissions are something that have to be stopped just because the IPCC say so. I say that is just scaremongering.

Scientists around the world are challenging this concept - they say carbon dioxide does not cause global warming for one thing it only occupies a very small part of the atmosphere and is a naturally occurring gas.

The UK accounts for only two per cent of the world's carbon emissions. Furthermore it helps the world, it stops heat from the sun escaping into space otherwise we would be an ice planet, and it helps plant growth, plants and trees take in carbon dioxide and gives us in return oxygen.

Surely you must see that we are barking up the wrong tree; our worry first and foremost should be the UK economy and not be inflicting industry and the public purse with unnecessary costs in the name of global warming.Millions of pounds is being wasted on wind turbines which are at best only 27 per cent efficient and produce very expensive electricity.

You seem to support the closure of power stations which currently supply most of our power.

The UK is becoming a net importer of energy and therefore at the mercy of other countries. Why are you doing this to us, are you thinking of moving abroad?

I can support with peer reviewed references all my letters to you, and once again I ask the two questions you seem unable to answer: 1. What do you think climate change is? 2. If the UK does all of the things that the Government and you support, what benefit can we expect in the UK - will it be perfect weather?

It may help you to reconsider your position on this matter and not give me your usual response - 'We must agree to disagree'.

I recommend you go to a good scientific website to check the facts. Try I look forward to your conversion to a sceptic with action to save us from the current nightmare of spend and tax being inflicted on us all by the ill thought out and unnecessary Climate Change Act.
