Carbon dioxide

In his letter (1 August) challenging Clark Cross, Walter 
Attwood of Friends of the Earth starts by making the assertion that carbon dioxide is a pollutant. This is blatantly not true. Carbon dioxide is essential to plant growth and indeed for all life on earth. The photosynthesis of carbon dioxide by plants results in the generation of the oxygen necessary to enable us all to survive.

Neither has there been any of the irresponsible, fear-inducing, green zealot claim that increasing carbon emissions will result in the world becoming “uninhabitable”.

Global earth temperature has not increased for the past 18 years despite increasing carbon emissions.

Future costs of UK energy supply

The Scientific Alliance recently published part 1 of an examination of National Grid's Future Energy Scenarios, dealing with security of supply. We are now pleased to publish part 2 - cost of supply. The authors - Dr Capell Aris and Colin Gibson - conclude that building more gas and nuclear stations would be considerably less expensive than any of the NG scenarios, as well as offering better energy security.
