Increasingly Heated

"As scientists by training, we do not dispute the science of the greenhouse effect - nor did any of our witnesses."

"However, there remain great uncertainties about how much warming a given increase in greenhouse gases will cause, how much damage any temperature increase will cause and the best balance between adaptation to versus prevention of global warming."

Thus have two members of the House of  Commons Energy and Climate Change Committee dissented from its report on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

One is Peter Lilley. The other is Graham Stringer, a Labour MP who has been expressing these views for many years.

Remember, a party's members of Select Committees are now elected by a secret ballot of its MPs. In the privacy of the polling booth, Labour MPs' choice for Energy and Climate Change was Graham Stringer.

One to watch, on both sides of the coming General Election.
