How David Henderson Became One of the IPCC’s Most Able and Determined Foes

In this DeSmog UK epic history post we meet David Henderson, who accidentally became one of the IPCC’s fiercest opponents.

David Henderson is a fellow of the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) where he is valued as an eloquent and modest advocate of radical free market capitalism. But, his engagement with climate scepticism “came about in an entirely unplanned and fortuitous way.”

The former head of the economic division of the state-funded international Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) was, in April 2003, spending his retirement busily devising a book which he planned to call False Consensus: Dark Visions and Collectivist Remedies.

Leading UK Sceptic Group Promotes Koch-Funded Canadian Climate Denier

Canadian climate denier Ross McKitrick has officially taken over as chairman of the academic advisory council of Lord Lawson’s controversial climate denying charity, the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF).

The Economics professor is also a Senior Fellow of the Koch-and Exxon-funded Fraser Institute, a libertarian think tank based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

McKitrick succeeds British economist David Henderson, 87 – the man responsible for inspiring Lawson’s climate scepticism over a decade ago.
