Climate watchers; COMMENT & DEBATE: YOUR LETTERS TO THE NATIONAL NEWSPAPER OF WALES.

* SIR - The letter from Gordon Triggs (Jan 10) makes reference to the petition project which he claims, to use his words, "publicly agreed and endorsed the findings of 31,486 American scientists".

A cursory glance at the petition project website shows that of the numbers claimed who dispute man-made global warming only 39 are climatologists, an insignificant number compared to the thousands of climatologists who agree after decades of research that human activity is the main cause of climate change.

The claim that this project is the result of research is incorrect. Yes, thousands have signed the petition, but appear to have done no research into climate change. Nearly 10,000 describe themselves as electrical engineers or just engineers. No doubt they are expert in their own field of work but it is highly unlikely that they are expert in climatology which is a very specialised field of research.
