Liam Fox legitimises climate change deniers

Responding to International Trade Secretary Liam Fox’s climate change comments today, Wera Hobhouse, Liberal Democrat Climate Change Spokesperson, said:
“The Conservative Government are finally showing their true colours, as apologists for climate change denial. While their ranks have many who reject the scientific evidence that humans are contributing to climate change, the Government at least accepted what was happening, but now it seems they’ve changed their mind.
“In a week where protesters have filled the streets of London and activist Greta Thunberg has visited Parliament, it is outrageous that Liam Fox is now legitimising those who deny climate change.

"Climate change is happening, and as a country we have a responsibility to do everything we can to slash our emissions and reduce the damage we’re doing. Comments like this show the Tories clearly cannot be trusted to take it seriously.”

The Tories cannot be trusted on anything. Equally they get their 'earnings' from fossil fuel companies. They would rather stay rich as the planet burns round them.
