ENERGY policy, like most other things these days, is the province of Brussels Bureaucrats and the European 'Parliament'.
We are taking decisions involving the spending of millions of tax payers' money, risking thousands of jobs and perpetuating the situation where the people of the United Kingdom pay more for their energy than any other country in the industrialised world.
Yet there are many questions still unanswered. Perhaps your readers can help.
I do not pretend to know, yet I am suppose to have a modest input into the decision making process. The questions I see are:
- why was the world hotter 700 years ago in the 'Medieval warm Period'?
- why is Greenland called Greenland?
- have sun spots and solar activity got anything to do with climate change?
- does not the data shown in Al Gore's film, illustrating carbon dioxide in the earth's atmosphere, follow temperature rises and not the other way round?
- why has the earth not warmed since 1998?
- why have other planets warmed in the last 50 years (Mars for instance) where there is no CO2 in the atmosphere?
- why are the thousands of highly qualified scientists who do not accept the man made global warming theory, like the famous Professor David Bellamy, not given air time on the BBC?
The government raised £17 billion pounds in 'Green' taxes last year. Where does it go?
Help me please if you can.
Godfrey Bloom, MEP for Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire
