Lies, Falsehoods and Misrepresentations from Boris Johnson to Rishi Sunak

‎”This is not the moment to go weak on net-zero, it’s the moment to double-down on green technology and the moment to double-down on wind power and clean, green solutions”

Boris Johnson MP, Cop27 Climate Summit

Facts

Referencing the global energy crisis, the former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, told world leaders that now is “not the moment to go weak on net-zero” at the Cop27 climate summit in Egypt. 

Boris Johnson’s final acts as PM included: 

  1. Backing major new oil and gas drill sites.

  2. Rowing back from onshore wind.

  3. Refusing to oppose the first new coal mine in decades.

  4. Scrapping re-wilding projects.

Verdict

Johnson was in no position to urge world leaders not “to go weak” on net-zero. This was hypocrisy on the most urgent issue of our time.

We emailed Boris Johnson’s office offering him the chance to respond. The email was received, but no reply.
