A fossil fuel front group –  The Global Warming Policy Foundation

 The Global Warming Policy Foundation, a climate sceptic thinktank, has
been reported to the Charity Commission by the Green MP Caroline Lucas and
Extinction Rebellion. The move comes after the Guardian revealed that the
group received funding from fossil fuel interests. The thinktank has
charitable status, but climate campaigners say the questions about its
funding mean it should be stripped of this. In a letter to the Charity
Commission, the signatories including the writers Irvine Welsh and Zadie
Smith say the GWPF is “not a charity, but a fossil fuel lobby group”.
The GWPF, set up in 2009 by the former Tory chancellor Lord Lawson, has
enjoyed a recent revival in its influence in parliament. It has MP Steve
Baker as a trustee and has its research promoted by the Net Zero Scrutiny
Group of Conservative MPs.
