Global Warming Policy Foundation
The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) is a think tank which seeks to give reliable information about climate change. It is based in London, England, and was founded in 2009 by Lord Lawson and Dr Benny Peiser.
The GWPF has stated its principles as follows:
- The GWPF does not have an official or shared view about the science of global warming – although we are of course aware that this issue is not yet settled.
- On climate science, our members and supporters cover a broad range of different views, from the IPCC position through agnosticism to outright scepticism.
- Our main focus is to analyse global warming policies and their economic and other implications. Our aim is to provide the most robust and reliable economic analysis and advice.
- We regard observational evidence and understanding the present as more important and more reliable than computer modelling or predicting the distant future.
