Some inconvenient truths have emerged recently for those who argue man is to blame for excessive global warming, but most of the media tended to shrug at these and other facts.
First, there were only a handful of cranky Tory backbenchers and libertarian Nigel Farage who were receptive in the 2000s to the growing popular discontent over the way the European Union was being run.
"Presenting itself as the voice of science in this important issue, it is a politically motivated pressure group that brings the good name of science into disrepute," he writes in the London Telegraph.
Mr. Lawson, along with others, notes the way the U.N. reports that mean temperatures have not increased significantly in recent years, an inconvenient fact for global warming activists.
