Two climate change sceptic MPs have just joined Lord Lawson’s climate denial charity, the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), in its efforts to oppose policies to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
It was announced today that Graham Stringer, Labour MP for Blackley and Broughton, and Peter Lilley, Conservative MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, will join the GWPF’s Board of Trustees. They are the only currently-elected MPs to be listed as members.
Both Lilley and Stringer are well-known for their climate scepticism. Last July, they were the only two MPs to vote against the Energy and Climate Change Committee’s acceptance of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) conclusion that humans are the dominant cause of global warming.
