Global warming argument not the only view

I was going to write six weeks ago, but I decided to wait to see how long it would actually take you to print a piece regarding the recent 'Climategate' scandal involving leaked emails and documents from the University of East Anglia's climatic research unit in England. I am still waiting.

The Belfast Telegraph is very quick to print articles regarding the dangers and threats posed by Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) otherwise known as 'man-made global warming', or, simply 'climate change'.

The Telegraph is also very quick to print articles which poke fun at people who do not believe in the theory of AGW. Your numerous articles regarding Sammy Wilson's opinions on AGW are hardly what one would describe as 'fair and balanced'.

The emails and documents leaked from the University of East Anglia's climatic research unit revealed that the scientists at the very heart of the AGW theory, the very scientists who authored the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC's) AGW reports, have conspired to manipulate data, destroy data, corrupt the well established scientific peer review process, threatened colleagues, deliberately deleted emails to avoid legal Freedom of Information requests, as well as many other examples of academic and scientific impropriety.

The people of Northern Ireland deserve to know that there is another side of the AGW argument.
