Climate secretary Ed Miliband broke his silence on the ongoing row about man-made climate change by declaring war on the ‘siren voices’ who denied global warming was real or man-made.
Mr Miliband said the by the ‘climategate’ controversy that appeared to show that vital data was suppressed or manipulated by climate scientists, as well as the more recent revelation that the Intergorvernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had exaggerated claims about the melting of glaciers in the Himalayan mountains.
‘It’s right that there’s rigour applied to all the reports about climate change, but I think it would be wrong that when a mistake is made it’s somehow used to undermine the overwhelming picture that’s there,’ he told the Observer.
He pointed to a wealth of research used to support the argument that climate change is man made – the physical effect of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, CO2 concentrations and observed increases in temperatures.
