Denier letter at Daily Telegraph

Yesterday's Daily Telegraph contained this letter:

SIR – Lord Hutton says Britain should be phasing out fossil fuels to address climate change, with new nuclear power stations providing low-carbon energy.
As Britain is only responsible for about 1 per cent of global carbon dioxide emissions, whatever we do to reduce the use of fossil fuels will have no detectable effect.
He also ignores studies that suggest there has been no rise in the global surface temperature for nearly 20 years, even though worldwide carbon dioxide emissions have been at record levels, mainly from developing nations such as India and China.
We should continue to burn coal in our existing power stations and start fracking for gas to help bridge the gap between now and the advent of new nuclear power stations.
James Allan
Fellow, Energy Institute (retd)

I've picked out in bold the bit I want to respond to.  The studies were ignored because they were wrong.  Thus James Allan is awarded the fossil fuel shill denier of the day award.  He is free to come and collect from Catmando Towers any time.
