Climate Change Denial
In May 2007 Robson and Sinclair Davidson challenged the view that the assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was sufficient to decide there was a need to make substantial cuts in greenhouse gas emissions. Claiming that there was a "lack of knowledge and understanding of climate change", they wrote that "it is not unreasonable for policy-makers to adopt a cautious approach to policy change. It is also not unreasonable for people to discount the hysterical commentary around climate change."
