The Brexit Party is tying itself in knots over its position on climate change, after a mailout from the party appeared to suggest it was set to acknowledge the climate emergency – a move that would put it at odds with many high-profile climate science deniers in Nigel Farage’s organisation.

Denial and Dampening Ambition: Where do Europe's Right-Wing Populist Parties Stand on Climate Change?

Read time: 19 mins

With the European elections around the corner, populists and right-wing parties are gathering momentum and teaming-up into a pan-European alliance.

The alliance is being established around a common anti-immigration and eurosceptic ideology but nationalists parties have something else in common: opposition to climate action.

Research shows that dozens of candidates standing in the election are using climate science denial and anti-climate action rhetoric as a campaign strategy.

Simplified version of the Tory-DUP network map

Prime Minister Theresa May has announced a deal with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) that she hopes will keep her in the job.

But while the Tory-DUP “supply and confidence” pact should give May the votes needed to govern, it also strengthens the bonds between the government and a group of climate science deniers that pushed for Brexit.
