Hi Richard. Thank you kindly for your comments. You are quite right about the tide of hungry refugees pouring into Europe representing Putin's "flank attack" on Europe. In fact, it is a brilliant strategy that is reminiscent of the what happened in Syria in the run up to the civil war there.

You mention that you think that China is complicit in Putin's evil plan: what do you think China has to gain from all of this and how does it help to secure its status as the world's largest superpower?

Your forecast for 2C warming in 3 years time is terrifying and I can but hope for all of our sake that you are wrong. Are you a climate scientist?

Many thanks again for your thought provoking comment and hope that you and your family are all well !
