Having noted the three responses (Scepticism Is Essential To Science, Don’t Blame Man and Greener Future, News Views, April 16) to Dr Middlemiss’s letter, I can only think that climate change denier is an unjustly reasonable description for those who:
l Will not respect the fact that it is the overwhelming view of the world’s climate scientists that we are experiencing potentially disastrous global warming and climate change substantially due to the burning of fossil fuels;
l Misrepresent the UN’s Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change as some kind of committee when, in fact, it is the means by which the published research of climate scientists across the world is aggregated and conclusions drawn;
l Without evidence assert that some of the world’s leading scientists are using flawed practice and the science is wrong;
MOST people will, at some point in their lives, see the effects of mental health problems at close quarters, whether through their own personal experience or that of family, friends or colleagues. They may also see the stigma still attached to it.
Among the organisations and individuals working to end the prejudices that remain is Newark Mind.
Set up in 1982, it is the leading mental health charity in Newark and Sherwood.
Based on London Road, Newark, it works to improve people’s mental and emotional well-being and promotes awareness, understanding and acceptance.
