What is the truth behind climate change misinformation?


Climate change misinformation;

Economist Gareth Morgan says big business and a government minister are spreading misinformation about climate change


What is the truth behind Gareth Morgan's claims of big business and a cabinet minister spreading misinformation about climate change? What is their agenda?


Big business and a government minister are being accused of spreading misinformation about climate change. Economist Gareth Morgan is making the claim, after spending half a million dollars researching the subject.

Mr Morgan says he invested his own money researching climate change, because he wanted to get past emotion and misinformation. The result is a book called Poles Apart, which comes down on the side of human-made climate change.

Mr Morgan says comments from Act's Rodney Hide dismissing it are gutter politics. And he has little time for what he calls alarmists on the other side of the debate.

Mr Morgan made his fortune as an economist and investment adviser, and through his investment in his son Sam's website business TradeMe. Mr Morgan says he used his own money to research climate change because he wanted to get past emotion and misinformation.
