Volume 498: debated on Thursday 29 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how many scientists and academics who disagree with the theory of man-made climate change he has met in a ministerial capacity in the last 12 months. (292449)

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has not met climate sceptic scientists and academics in the last 12 months. However, the overwhelming consensus among climate scientists is that the case for human caused climate change that we are experiencing is unequivocal. This is the clear conclusion of the International Panel for Climate Change Fourth Assessment Report published in 2007.
