Climate science denial campaign group, the Global Warming Policy Forum (GWPF), has a new director – a well-connected, pro-Brexit, millionaire Tory funder with a vested interest in slowing the UK’s transition to a low carbon economy.

Terence Mordaunt was quietly announced as having joined the board of directors of former chancellor and prominent climate science denier and Brexiteer Nigel Lawson’s GWPF in April.

Myron Ebell, the man at the vanguard of President Trump’s efforts to dismantle US climate policy, today told a London audience that Trump's election and the rejection of scientific experise was “not an isolated phenomenon”. 

The press conference, hosted by UK climate science denying think tank the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) and the Foreign Press Association, is the latest demonstration of how Trump’s newly-empowered network of climate science deniers is using its platform to promote the interests of the fossil fuel industry around the globe.

Director of the anti-wind charity, Renewable Energy Foundation (REF), John Constable has joined the campaigning arm of Lord Lawson’s climate science denying charity as energy editor and policy advisor.

As the quietly released Global Warming Policy Forum’s (GWPForum) press release boasts: “John is well known in the sector for his trenchant critique of target-led and subsidy driven renewables policies, which as he has pointed out are counterproductive both as energy and as climate policies.”

Constable made his debut as a member of the GWPForum this week in the Sunday Telegraph’s article “Revealed: the great wind farm tax ‘con’” where he criticised the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s (DECC) re-examination of public funding for onshore wind as “just spin doctor stuff, it’s playing with words”.
