Al Gore’s global warming film would be banned in schools under plans by the UK Independence Party (UKIP) the Telegraph is reporting.
Following a number of scandals around the science of climate change, UKIP are promising to launch a Royal Commission led by a High Court judge to investigate whether global warming is man-made.
Pending the results of the commission, the party, that has no MPs at the moment, have promised to build new fossil-fueled power stations to meet energy demands and scrap subsidies for wind farms. Global warming ‘propaganda’ like the Al Gore film Inconvenient Truth will be banned in schools and public authorities will not be allowed to spend money on climate change initiatives.
A recent poll found the just one in five people believe climate change is man-made, compared to one in three a year ago.
The survey of 1,000 people found people over 65 were more likely to be skeptical.
Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, the UKIP climate change spokesman, said his party was the only opportunity to vote against the climate change consensus.
"At the moment all the major parties have decided to sign up to the eco-fascist agenda and therefore anyone who does not believe in eco-fascist agenda has no where else to go," he said.
Climate change skeptics claim that emails stolen from the University of East Anglia show scientists were willing to manipulate the data around global warming in a scandal known as ‘climategate’.
In another scandal known as ‘glaciergate’ the UN body in charge of climate change science, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), was forced to retract a claim that the Himalayan glaciers could melt by 2035.
