UK Climate Change Committee ‘Deceived Parliament And The British People’ On Net Zero Costs


The Government is facing demands to launch an urgent inquiry into the conduct of the Climate Change Committee (CCC), as evidence accumulates that the cost of Net Zero will be trillions of pounds more costly than the Committee has claimed.

The call comes in the wake of comments from Olivier Blanchard, a former chief economist at the IMF, who told the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee that Net Zero will be “much more expensive than people imagine.” [emphasis, links added]

Mr Blanchard’s remarks are just the latest confirmation that the public has been systematically misled over the cost of Net Zero :

And the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, Lord Hammond, has said, quite bluntly that the political establishment has been “systematically dishonest” about the cost of Net Zero.

Net Zero Watch director Andrew Montford said:

“There is no longer any doubt that the Climate Change Committee has deceived Parliament and the British people. The only question is whether Rishi Sunak is going to do anything about it.

“He has a simple choice – launch an inquiry into the Climate Change Committee and all the other institutions involved in the deception, or go down in history as a party to the fraud.”
