Natural gas

Have your say

Prince Charles has visited the Somerset Levels (your report, 5 February) and has previously called climate-change deniers “headless chickens”.

If anyone’s behaving like “headless chickens” it is the environmentalists who claim every freak storm is a symptom of man-made global warming.

The extent of any man-made global warming is infinitesimal compared with the carbon dioxide created by nature.

Volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and tornados are major contributors to global emission levels.

There is nothing that mankind can do unless Prince Charles comes up with one of his frankly bizarre ideas.

Recently the Mount Sinabung volcano on the Indonesian island of Sumatra erupted, spewing out ash clouds and dirty carbon
dioxide.

In 2010 the ash cloud from the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajokull caused enormous disruption to air travel.

Mount Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991 and spewed out more greenhouses gases than the entire human race had produced in its entire years on earth.

Volcanic eruptions prove how puny are the attempts of man to control the climate.

There are 500 active volcanoes in the world.

Will Prince Charles be able to overcome nature?
