The leading British climate & energy policy think tank
The Global Warming Policy Forum promotes a fact-based assessment of climate science and related policies.
The associated Foundation conducts educational seminars on climate science and policy. The lectures are posted on the Youtube channel below.
Lord Lawson, a British politician and journalist now sitting in the House of Lords, set up The GWPF in 2009 because he was concerned about the costs of government policies to tackle climate change. He wanted to bring reason, integrity and balance to the debate.
The foundation is run by Dr. Benny Peiser, a social anthropologist specializing in the environmental and socio-economic impact of physical activity on health.

- No warming in the UK? October 20, 2020The Central England Temperature Record is the Met Office’s preferred measure of UK temperature, at least as far as climatology is concerned.
