The Phoenix Society Presents: Nigel Lawson, Politican & Journalist

The Copenhagen Summit was the world’s opportunity to take action on the climate for our future. Without legally binding targets, where does this leave us?

As an ardent sceptic of mainstream attitudes towards climate change, Lord Lawson wrote recently “Copenhagen will fail – and quite right too”. In his controversial view, the science is still unreliable and the need to reduce carbon emissions is questionable.

Having been Chancellor of the Exchequer under Margaret Thatcher, Lord Lawson recently announced the launch of the ‘Global Warming Policy Foundation’ which aims to challenge government policies and attitudes towards climate change.

Though undoubtedly controversial, the talk will certainly provide an insight into the views of one of our most prominent and articulate global warming sceptics.

Entry, refreshments and wine are free of charge for University members.
