Heated debate
I recently commented on those correspondents who get bogged down over arguments about renewable energy in the face of the bigger and more important issue of climate change.

Letters from Mr Southgate (Smelling A Rat On Climate Change) and Mr Sheppard (Call For Rethink, News Views, December 11) illustrate my point.

Climate change is one of the biggest issues facing us all, and the reason why world leaders have been in Lima this week to hammer out a new treaty on limiting greenhouse gas emissions.

There the politics were not about whether man-made climate change can be halted, but about the will to tackle it.

Case for change
THE example of Hexham Hospital, in Northumberland, deserves the full attention of those responsible for health services in this area. The hospital is run on a model that could be adopted at Newark.

It is MP Robert Jenrick’s preferred option for improved services at Newark Hospital.

The Say Yes to Newark Hospital campaign wants the current Minor Injuries Unit to be upgraded to an Urgent Care Centre, which Hexham has.

For the majority of people, emergency care is at the heart of hospital services and enhanced provision is essential for a town and district where the population is expected to grow significantly over the coming years.
