Event Details

Spectator Australia event



Tired of the  24/7 media's mindless obsession with climate change?

For an informed and substantial discussion, join Lord Nigel Lawson at the Spectator Australia debate on Wednesday 3 August at Tattersalls Club, 181 Elizabeth Street, Sydney, between 6 p.m. and 8.30 p.m.

Lord Lawson was not only Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s long-time Chancellor; he is also one of the world’s most distinguished economists, and has spent the past decade warning of the perils of decarbonising the economy. Lord Lawson argues that government policies to replace relatively cheap carbonbased energy with substantially more expensive renewable energy are economic illiteracy of the worst order.

NO to a carbon tax:

  • Lord Nigel Lawson, former British Conservative chancellor and author of An Appeal to Reason
  • Ian Plimer, geologist at University of Adelaide and author of Heaven & Earth
  • Gary Johns, associate professor at the Australian Catholic University and former federal Labor minister

YES to a carbon tax:

  • John Hewson, chairman of GSA and former federal Liberal leader
  • Benjamin McNeil, senior fellow at the Climate Change Research Centre at the University of New South Wales
  • Mark Latham, Spectator Australia columnist and former federal Labor leader

    Postal payments now closed.
