John Howard: Global Warming Battle ‘Has Become A Religion’


People who believe that the world is facing catastrophe from climate change have adopted the cause as a “substitute religion”, according John Howard, the former Prime Minister of Australia.

John Howard accused some scientists of having a “nakedly political agenda” in their advice on global warming and said that attempts were being made to intimidate politicians by telling them to “follow the science”.

Delivering a lecture in London last night, Mr Howard said he doubted that a global agreement on cutting emissions would be reached. He described himself as an “agnostic on global warming” and said that those who gave apocalyptic warnings of the effects of greenhouse gas emissions should remember mankind’s “infinite capacity to adapt”.

The Prime Minister of Australia from 1996 to 2007 was speaking at the invitation of the former Chancellor Lord Lawson of Blaby and his Global Warming Policy Foundation, which argues that the threat from climate change has been overstated.

Mr Howard criticised the “sanctimonious tone” of many who advocate costly responses to what they see as irrefutable evidence of future climate catastrophe. “To them the cause has become a substitute religion,” he said.
