IN answer to Vivien Collins’ letter about the biggest issue the world faces (November 28, “Nine years in power, nine years of failure”); there is no climate crisis it’s a complete nonsense and a fallacy.

I can accept adults believing different things because we have a choice of what we believe and we hopefully make that choice logically and sensibly.

What I find totally unacceptable is adults frightening children over climate issues.

In my mind that comes close to child abuse.

It seems to me that people who believe theses scares have closed their mind to anything that contradicts that belief; science is the way of understanding the world.

At a press conference last Wednesday, the European Parliament was told: “There is no climate emergency.”

This simple and demonstrable fact was too much to bear for one MEP, who decided to respond angrily with emotional metaphors, rather than engage with the facts about climate change.

The event was hosted by the European Conservatives and Reformists group in the European Parliament who surprisingly, but encouragingly, had agreed to receive the climate declaration from Professor Guus Berkhout.

He represents the Climate Intelligence Foundation (Clintel), a Dutch group who have collected signatures from more than 700 prominent scientists and professionals in support of the basic statement: “There is no climate emergency.”

Or to put it another way it’s yet again the latest fashionable nonsense.
