Motion text

That this House notes the Channel 4 broadcast of the documentary The Great Climate Change Swindle; notes the content of the programme, which brought together leading scientists who disagree with the consensus that carbon dioxide is the cause of rising global temperatures and included comments by the right hon. Lord Lawson of Blaby; further notes that one of the contributors received a death threat and that the contributor who stated that anyone not agreeing with the orthodoxy of how climate change levy comes about sees their public funding drying up; believes that it is vitally important that there is as much open debate as possible on all sides of the argument over what causes climate change; deplores any attempt to stifle this free debate; and congratulates Channel 4 on the televising of this detailed, informative and authoritative contribution to that debate.
