Global warning for Boris

Opinion

Just about the largest single donation to former foreign secretary Al “Boris” Johnson’s campaign to become Prime Minister came from Terence Mordaunt, via his company First Corporate Shipping.

Another entity that Mr Mordaunt is a director of is the Global Warming Policy Foundation, probably the most active climate change deniers in the UK.

Is Johnson sympathetic to climate change deniers? As recently as 2015, he wrote in his Daily Telegraph column that “global leaders were driven by a primitive fear that the present ambient warm weather is somehow caused by humanity; and that fear – as far as I understand the science – is equally without foundation.” What price now for zero carbon emissions by 2050?
