Christopher Booker

Letter to the Telegraph, 15.04.12 (not published)


Amongst all the heat and furore generated by the climate change contrarians, one fact stands out like a beacon: Christopher Booker is no scientist (In the Eyes of “Nature”, Warming Can’t Be Natural).   His article states, “When the Earth was emerging from the last ice-age, 15,000 years ago, it was temperatures that rose first, later followed by rises in CO2“. This is the exact opposite of the article published in Nature whose title reads :  “Global warming preceded by increasing carbon dioxide concentrations during the last deglaciation”.   I’m not sure if Mr Booker has a scientific credential to his name, but if he failed his physics O-level, then it is not hard to see why.

Yours sincerely
