Steve Goreham is listed as a “Founding Member” of group named Climate Exit (Clexit) led by climate change denier Christopher Monckton. According to Clexit's founding statement (PDF), “The world must abandon this suicidal Global Warming crusade. Man does not and cannot control the climate.” [10][11]

Desmog reports on how the group grew in the wake of the UK's decision to leave the EU. A key member of Clexit's “60 well-informed science, business and economic leaders” is Hugh Morgan, a former board member of the Reserve Bank of Australia and former CEO of Western Mining Corporation with close ties to Australia's Liberal party. [12][13]

According to Clexit's founding statement

If the Paris climate accord is ratified, or enforced locally by compliant governments, it will strangle the leading economies of the world with pointless carbon taxes and costly climate and energy policies, all with no sound basis in evidence or science […]” [11]

Goreham is the author of Climatism! Science, Common Sense, and the 21st Century's Hottest Topic.

A media release describes the book: “Goreham demonstrates that climate change is due to natural causes, not man-made emissions of greenhouse gases. Therefore, humanity is engaged in a futile effort to control the Earth’s temperature, imposing severe policies that will limit our freedoms and radically transform our way of life.”

He also publishes skeptical articles at Climate Realists, and contributes to conservative websites such as Big Government.
