Climate-change denier Lord Lawson is an expert – he once wrote a book about dieting

Attacks on Climate Change now seem to be routine parts of Conservatism on both sides of the Atlantic. The motive is less an attack on what is perceived to be bad science, than an attempt to defend unrestrained capitalism. The American Right despises the climate lobby for its attempts to regulate industry to protect the environment, and the Left-wing views of many of its supporters. They are explicitly denounced and resented for supporting the redistribution of wealth. Hence Conservatives decry and vilify them, and seek to refute the science on which discussions of climate change are based.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

I see climate-change deniers have brought out their big guns to deny the recent flooding and storms are anything to do with climate change.

Former Thatcher chancellor Nigel Lawson went head-to-head with Met’ Office Chief Scientist Professor Julia Slingo – destroying her scientific assessments that the recent extreme weather conditions were almost certainly the result of climate change with the devastating scientific argument that she is just : “this Julia Slingo woman“.

Personally, I don’t know much about the science behind climate change. So let’s take a look at who is most likely to be right on the scientific arguments around climate in general:

Lawson vs Slingo

You had me at “it’s just this woman” Nigel.
