NEVER before has the debate over global warming been so bitter or so public.
Climate change sceptics have been rubbing their hands with glee over the recent revelations about dodgy goings-on in the research laboratories and at the UN’s International Panel On Climate Change that suggest all is suddenly not so well with the theory of man-made global warming.
Some of the most alarmist claims about how the world is hurtling towards disaster unless we drastically curb carbon emissions have been shown to be nothing but, well, hot air. These damaging exposes may have shocked the public but were no surprise to Britain’s foremost climate change sceptic, Lord Lawson.
He was one of Margaret Thatcher’s most successful Chancellors and is father of TV chef Nigella. Now, at the age of 77, Lawson, has a new goal: to save the world from itself. His new think tank, the Global Warming Policy Foundation aims “to bring reason, integrity and balance to a debate that has become seriously unbalanced, irrationally alarmist”.
As in Lawson’s best-selling book, An Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming, the foundation argues against the fashionable policy of drastically cutting carbon emissions .
