ON reading Mike Burston’s letter (The Border Mail, July 4) I feel I must warn him of the dangers of ignoring global warming.
On the very day his letter is printed the national news reports that 56 countries have broken their extreme heat records.
I wonder if Mike might like to quote the source of his information that the Earth has not warmed for 17 years and people are weary of the greenhouse propaganda industry.
My understanding is that more than two-thirds of the electorate want some action on climate change.
More importantly when he says temperatures have not increased I wonder if he has taken into account the amount of heat increase that has been absorbed by warming oceans and melting ice caps thus disguising the problem.
