#UK: Parliament Was "Misled" On Cost Of Net Zero Emissions Plan, Says Policy Group

[world politics news]

The UK Sunday Telegraph reports that Parliament was misled into supporting Net Zero plans to decarbonize the British economy.

The Climate Change Committee (CCC) told MPs that British households and businesses would face only a modest cost for reaching Net Zero emissions in 2050, but analysis of their financial models by the Global Warming Policy Forum (GWPF) shows that key assumptions were not credible even at the time the report was published.

The revelations come after the CCC spent two years and tens of thousands of pounds resisting attempts to have the Net Zero model spreadsheets released under Freedom of Information legislation. The Information Tribunal finally forced their disclosure in August this year.

Dr Benny Peiser, GWPF director said: 

'"It is clear that the CCC’s net zero costings were incomplete, biased, and grossly misleading. Parliament was, in essence, misled and net zero was mis-sold."
