SIR – In his letter in Monday’s Worcester News, K Hemming referred to global warming as “brainless propaganda”, basing his claim on the cold weather we’ve experienced this winter and last.

Since not one climate scientist has predicted the UK’s winter weather is suitable for pavement eggfrying, he’s rather overstating his case.

What they do predict, however, is more extreme weather conditions.

While we were having a cold snap, parts of Newfoundland recorded temperatures 20C above the norm for December.

Nineteen national temperature records were broken in 2010. So much for global cooling.
