Net Zero Watch (NZW), which launched last month, presents itself as a reasonable campaign to scrutinise the impact and cost of the UK government’s net zero policies. The group has been quoted in the media and retweeted by prominent anti-net zero MPs Steve Baker and Craig Mackinlay.
However, NZW board member Lord Nigel Lawson, a long-term organiser of UK climate science denial, has written an article for this week’s Spectator magazine denying climate science and rejecting the need to cut carbon emissions. It comes during the COP26 UN climate summit in Glasgow.
Experts said the article’s “prehistoric arguments” prove that Net Zero Watch is really “a front for tired old climate change denial”.
