Ford condemns Environment Minister’s ban on climate change ads

Alliance Environment spokesperson David Ford MLA has criticised the Environment Minister Sammy Wilson’s decision to block television ads from Westminster calling on people to reduce energy consumption and cut carbon dioxide output

“It appears that Sammy believes that the climate change warnings are being carried out by a shady organisation as purely a propaganda campaign. But the simple fact is that there is scientific evidence accepted by the overwhelming majority of scientists that man made climate change will affect our environment if it is not brought under control.

“Almost the only misrepresentation that the Minister did not utter this morning was the suggestion that one week’s snow proves there is no global warming. The rest of his comments merely prove how unrepresentative his personal opinions are.”
