Owen Paterson to deliver annual climate-sceptic lecture
Reacting to news that sacked environment Secretary Owen Paterson is to deliver the annual lecture to Nigel Lawson's climate sceptic thinktank, Friends of the Earth Climate Campaigner Guy Shrubsole said:
"This is beyond satire, and confirms that Owen Paterson was never fit to hold the post of Environment Secretary.
"Liz Truss must make a clean break with her predecessor by backing urgent action to slash emissions, and by speaking to scientists and experts - not the climate quacks at the GWPF.
“This is not about an internecine fight within the Tory party, it is about the future of humanity.”
