Gareth Renowden reports:
On Thursday morning, TVNZ’s Breakfast Business programme included an interview with Baron Lawson of Blaby. It’s available here. Nigel’s opening statement is a shocker:
“There’s no global warming happening at the present time. That’s clear, accepted on all sides of the argument.”
I’m particularly disappointed with the TV interviewer, who gave him an incredibly soft ride. You’d think even TV NZ business journalists might be expected know enough to spot blatant rubbish when it’s being spouted.
Meanwhile, the Herald (via NZPA) reports him as saying: “We appear to have entered a new age of unreason, which threatens to be as economically harmful as it is profoundly disquieting.” I’m rendered speechless, which is something I might wish for the blue Baron.
Renowden has more on Lawson’s visit to NZ here.
