  • Arp.13.2015: Exposed: Two Funders of Lord Lawson's Climate Denial Charity Linked to Energy Industry. Lord Lawson’s climate denial charity has accepted secret donations from a consultant who worked for the nuclear industry and a wealthy Tory peer who claims to have been the first person in Britain to have built subsidised wind farms. Lord Lawson, chairman-for-life of the GWPF, has steadfastly refused to name his funders despite appeals from senior MPs for greater transparency. Despite this, DeSmog UK has managed to name several of his donors. ref Bryan Bateman, a consultant with the Confederation of Paper Industries and a former engineer working on nuclear power stations, confirmed on Friday that he was a GWPF funder. Lord Cavendish, a former energy minister also confirmed during an interview that he had contributed to the foundation. Bateman said that he had been working within a small group, including his friends in Parliament, attacking mainstream climate science which later became the GWPF. This was before Lawson became involved. ... some stuff of Cavendish here. Several of the GWPF donors were also financial supporters of the Conservative party. This includes Lord Vinson, who assisted Thatcher to power and has recently threatened to donate to UKIP as a supporter. Tory party donors Lord Leach, Michael Hintze, Edward Atkin, and Neil Record have also been identified as benefactors, both to the climate denial charity GWPF Foundation, and also to David Cameron’s ‘Vote Blue, Go Green’ Conservatives.
