MPs need a Reality Check -
Global Warming Assumptions are false scientists warn
As MPs press the British Government to show greater commitment on Climate Change scientists today wrote to Tim Yeo MP Chair of the House Of Commons Environment Audit Committee with official data evidence that in the last decade world temperatures have fallen while carbon dioxide has risen and called on him to "explain on what evidence you base your recommendations".
The letter from astrophysicist Piers Corbyn Director of WeatherAction long range forecasters, written after consultation with other scientists, arrives before MPs today.
Piers, whose long range forecast (5 months ahead) for rainfall deluges this July in Britain and Ireland are being impressively confirmed**, commented on the reasons for the letter:
"It's time for MPs to have a reality check. That is what this letter is about. The public have a right to know on what basis £billions are spent every year in their name. I urge people to write to their own MPs with these questions too.
