Greenhouse gas effect an unproven fairy tale

To the Editor,

Re: Climate coalition claims simply not legitimate, Letters, Jan. 12.

Ian Gartshore argues about “balanced coverage” in the climate discussion. But then he repeats again the never proven fairy tale of a so-called greenhouse effect.

The comparison of the car in the summer sun and our atmosphere shows that he has no idea about physics.

The car is a closed system while the atmosphere is an open system and not comparable.

A greenhouse effect of carbon dioxide gases is not possible and not proven by any climate scientist.

He should take note of the facts that climate change is the most natural thing in the world and will happen whether people like it or not.
