Climate Change Act 2008 (2050 Target Amendment) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (26 Jun 2019)

Lord Donoughue: My Lords, I declare my interests as in the register. This massive proposal, which is imaginative and exciting in many ways, is being rushed through Parliament, partly because the departing Prime Minister has a desire for a legacy and partly because of the claimed emergency over climate change or global warming. I am in the minority as I was rather sympathetic to the Prime Minister on many...

Climate Change Act 2008 (2050 Target Amendment) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (26 Jun 2019)

Lord Donoughue: My Lords, before the noble Lord sits down, he referred to the Global Warming Policy Foundation, of which I am chairman. The noble Lord—apparently wildly but, I am sure, sincerely—claimed that every figure printed by the foundation was wrong. I congratulate him on having read every one of the millions of figures we have published; I certainly have not done so. He said that all other...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Greenhouse Gas Emissions (17 Jun 2019)

Investment Banks: Client Protection - Question (13 Jun 2018)

Lord Donoughue: My Lords, I commend the noble Lord, Lord Lee, for his persistent, impressive work in defending investors’ interests. I declare a historic interest as a one-time partner in a City of London stockbroking firm. Further to the Minister’s reply, will he and the Government reconsider whether they should amend the special administration rules to stop administrators taking their inflated...

Climate Change: Health - Motion to Take Note (21 Dec 2017)

Lord Donoughue: My Lords, I apologise for having arrived unavoidably about two minutes late, so I missed the profound opening statement from the noble Baroness. We are discussing two very important subjects here: climate change and global health. But after listening to what has already been said, and having read much elsewhere, it seems to me that the relationship between those two is not always as clear as...

Climate Change: Health - Motion to Take Note (21 Dec 2017)

Lord Donoughue: As I read it, the temperature has risen by one degree. Did I say 1%? I should have said one degree.

Climate Change: Health - Motion to Take Note (21 Dec 2017)

Lord Donoughue: I accept that rebuke from the noble Lord. I trust that he will never in his life say 1% instead of one degree. It is 150 years since the cool cycle turned down, so it is not surprising if the climate turns up and gets a little warmer. In the 21st century, the warming is virtually zero. Who knows what is going to happen? I certainly do not. Many alarmists claim to know, but I do not. Reason...

Climate Change: Health - Motion to Take Note (21 Dec 2017)

Lord Donoughue: I was aware of that study but we were discussing health today, and I was producing numbers on that. In the United Kingdom, the forecast warming to 2050—if it continues at the present rate; if it increased it would be more—is forecast to cause an extra 2,000 heat-related deaths. However, we in the UK would of course benefit by 20,000 fewer cold-related deaths. People so far adapt better...

Lord Donoughue: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Prior of Brampton on 14 March (HL5780), whether their statement that the increase in global average surface temperatures is not consistent with natural internal variability is supported by evidence that is not based upon computer simulation of the climate.
