An Appeal to Reason: a cool look at global warming

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Lord Lawson, Dr Simon Dietz
Chair: Professor Gwyn Prins

Recorded on 29 October 2008 in Old Theatre, Old Building.

Lord Lawson argues the case for a fully formed view of global warming, and against hysterical environmentalism. He looks at the facts behind the headlines and explains that for governments to make informed decisions about the path ahead, they must listen to economists as well as scientists, utilising economic forecasting to assess the likely evolution of the world economy.
