Does my right hon. Friend accept that one of the big flaws in the Stern report is that it does not engage with reality. On 23 October, in an article in The Guardian, Professor Stern wrote:

"we must...halt deforestation - the source of 20 per cent. of greenhouse gas emissions", but he did not say how that would be possible. Does not that same flaw run through the whole report?
