Taking issue with policy; Letters.
TOM Flaws' letter (The Journal, August 17) rambles across several aspects of Jeremy Corbyn's possible environmental policy. Just taking a few of them: 1) There is no such thing as a 'tipping point' in global temperatures, just as there is no evidence to support the 'man made global warming' hypothesis.
2) Creating one million 'green' jobs is a myth - three jobs are lost in the real economy for every subsidised 'green' job, so one million 'green' jobs would result in a net loss of two million jobs.
3) Britain does not subsidise the fossil fuel industry, Mr Flaws obviously doesn't understand the difference between a subsidy and a tax allowance.
4) One of the reasons for rising energy bills is because of huge subsidies paid for wind and solar installations.
5) Jeremy Corbyn won't establish a National Investment Bank, nor anything else, because he is not electable.
Unless we repeal Ed Miliband's suicidal 2008 'Climate Change Act' - or ignore it - UK industry and commerce will be toast!
