More Tory MPs than Labour doubt climate change is man made


More than twice as many Conservative MPs as Labour MPs doubt that scientists have “conclusively proved” climate change is caused by humans, according to a poll by PR Week.

In a poll of 119 of parliament’s 650 MPs, including 57 Tories and 51 Labour MPs, only 17 Tories agreed that it was a scientific fact that climate change is largely caused by humans, compared to 34 Labour politicians.

Thirty Conservatives agreed “there is a widespread theory that climate change is largely man-made but this has not yet been conclusively proved”, and another 10 agreed that “man-made climate change is environmentalist propaganda for which there is little or no real evidence.” For Labour, 12 MPs agreed with the former statement, and just one with the latter.
