Farage could break the dam

Dear Editor

Anyone watching GB News won’t fail to notice Nigel Farage rapidly gaining traction. He clearly is going for it with Reform. Whatever people’s feelings about him in the past, he seems to be the only politician talking meaningful leadership. If/when he makes this official, I believe we will witness an outburst of repressed energy never seen before in our lifetimes. People are desperate to clutch any optimistic straw, not necessarily a stable emotion, but who could blame them?

Climate change ‘reparations’ fund cruel and corrupt regimes

Dear Editor

The Scottish Government planning minister Tom Arthur says ‘The window of opportunity to act to reduce emissions and adapt to already locked in changes is narrowing’. He should be honest and tell the Scottish people how much it is going to cost to reach Scotland Net Zero by 2045. UK Net Zero by 2050 will cost £3trillion or £108,000 for every household but Tom Arthur should be able to afford this on his taxpayer-funded salary of £94,821. Scotland has less than 0.15 per cent of world emissions so that anything Scotland does is pointless whilst other countries burn fossil fuels, build more coal-fired power plants and drive 1.45 billion petrol/diesel vehicles. Only five countries, including Scotland, have legally-binding Climate Change Acts; the other 188 have made promises which are regularly being broken. COP27 was all about money and not about reducing emissions. Developing countries have secured $1trillion ‘loss and damage’ climate reparations from rich countries to help them recover from climate change which they say was caused by the Industrial Revolution. Nicola Sturgeon appeared at COP27 and grandly announced that she was giving £5million of Scottish taxpayers’ money to this ‘loss and damage’ fund although some the countries getting a slice of the $1trillion are the most cruel, corrupt and dangerous regimes on earth.

Why climate change models are rubbish

Dear Editor

 This is for anyone in authority who might be capable of thinking for themselves.

You will know that IPCC models have been shown to be flawed probably because they don’t appear to allow for:

a) The self-correcting feedback loop whereby increased global temperature increases global greening, which absorbs CO2.

b) The effect of water vapour in the atmosphere – their models assume that the atmosphere is dry air!

c) The effect of variations in the Earth’s orbit and solar activity, including warming due to solar wind storms.

d) The fact that the greenhouse gas effect of CO2 is not linear with the percentage of the gas and the impact falls away exponentially.

e) The fact that natural CO2 emissions follow global temperature, not the other way around.

But surely anyone can grasp that the net increase in CO2 levels in 2020 rose by 2.5ppm, > 5,000 times the UK’s average annual emissions over the previous 60 years, making models irrelevant.

It should also be abundantly clear that that increase in natural emissions far outweighed the human contribution. That is because global warming and natural COemissions are driven by the big ball of fire in the sky and the impact of our emissions is trivial.

Importing oil and gas from abroad via CO2-emitting tankers as we drive more business overseas, where it will cause more emissions than before, is about as dumb as it gets.

Then consider that it will take hundreds of years at the current rate of mining to produce the materials needed to achieve Net Zero.

Do you really think that spending £5trillion (£200,000 per family) is good bang for money, while causing more fuel poverty and power cuts here?

Repent, Dame June!

This is a letter that a reader has written to Dame June Raine, Chief Executive of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

Dear Dr Raine,

I am outraged at your approval for giving these highly dangerous ‘vaccines’ to children who have almost zero chance of being badly affected by Covid.

I am reminded of this verse in scripture:

‘If anyone causes one of these little ones – those who believe in me – to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.’

There are too many children who are already ‘stumbling’ because of your evil practices. Please, June Raine, repent and change course before more damage is done to your own spiritual well-being as well as these little innocents.

Yours sincerely 

Nigel Hall
