Abstract

The BBC upheld a complaint regarding Nigel Lawson, a former Chancellor and climate sceptic, for an interview in which he put forward a number of inaccurate and misleading statements about the science of climate change. Bob Ward, one of a number of people who complained, writes how Lawson’s spin machine cranked into action this week to try to portray the BBC’s decision as a form of censorship. He argues that we need to be wary of attempts by the former Chancellor and his small group of friends and allies to justify their campaign of misinformation about climate change.
