I'd welcome scientific debate with professor 

I would be grateful if you would permit me to refute some of the allegations Professor John Barry made about me in your letters' column (Write Back, October 4). Although Prof Barry could not have known this, the allegation that I described those who hold a certain view of climate change as the "Green Brigade" is untrue. The term was included by a Belfast Telegraph headline writer. I always try to avoid such ad hominem attacks when debating scientific matters.
