Climate change and free speech

Lord Lawson and Brian Cox are both highly intelligent men.

The former ought to know better than to dismiss the evidence for the impact of human activity on the climate as lightly as he does.

The latter ought to know better than to attack the BBC for allowing Nigel Lawson to express that view on Radio 4. in the manner that he did

You do not win arguments by claiming that the other side does not have one and should not have the right to a platform, no matter how strongly you believe - possibly correctly - that the evidence is overwhelmingly on your side.
