An Appeal to Reason: a cool look at global warming

LSE public lecture


Lord Lawson argues the case for a fully formed view of global warming, and against hysterical environmentalism. He looks at the facts behind the headlines and explains that for governments to make informed decisions about the path ahead, they must listen to economists as well as scientists, utilising economic forecasting to assess the likely evolution of the world economy.

Lord Lawson served as Chancellor between 1983 and 1989 under Margaret Thatcher, prior to this he served as Secretary of State for Energy and Financial Secretary to the Treasury. He is the author of An Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming (Gerald Duckworth & Co Ltd, 2008).

Dr Simon Dietz is lecturer in the Department of Geography and Environment and deputy director of the The Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at LSE
