Waste of money

The earthquake in Chile shows how helpless mankind is in trying to influence nature, (your 
report 3, April). Add tsunamis, volcanoes, floods and other natural disasters and even the most dyed-in-the-wool green zealot must recognise this.

Perversely, the United 
Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) did not build these events into its already discredited computer models.

These models predicted the alarming rate at which global temperatures would rise from 1998 onwards, but scientists spectacularly failed to consider the impact of volcanoes.

Volcanic eruptions release particles into the air that reflect sunlight thus causing temperatures to drop and desperate 
global warming scientists/
alarmists belatedly gave this as the reason/excuse why global temperatures had not risen for 16 years.

The West has therefore wasted tens of billions of pounds to prevent computer-modelled global warming that spectacularly failed to happen.

What excuse will the 
scaremongering IPCC give 
when global warming stalls yet again?
