Nigel Lawson, the former British Chancellor of the Exchequer who formed the GWPF, responded that it was “an appalling state of affairs, and your reference to McCarthyism is fully warranted.”

David Henderson, chairman of the GWPF’s academic council and a former chief economist for the OECD, noted that Professor Bengtsson had suffered “a degree of intolerance, and a rejection of the principle of open scientific inquiry, which are truly shocking.”

Professor Bengtsson said that most protests about his decision to join the GWPF came from the U.S., where the administration of Barack Obama has become almost deranged on climate, which the president has picked as a “legacy issue.”
