The climate debate is over

20 June, 2019

• SHAME on you New Journal. You should not give space in your paper to climate change deniers, (End the hysteria on climate change, June 13). Would you have printed a letter promoting appeasement at the start of World War II?

The climate debate started 40 years ago and is now over. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has given us, now, 11 years to fix this huge problem: this existential threat to our life support system, the Earth’s eco-system.

Parliament has declared a climate emergency. Some basic fact-checking would have disqualified that letter from publication. Please follow the lead of the BBC; they no longer invite climate change deniers into debates. Get on the right side of history!
