Rt Hon Lord Lilley

    Lord Lilley: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether any peer-reviewed scientific studies or reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predict the extermination of the human race in the next century as a result of climate change.

    Lord Callanan: We are not aware of any peer-reviewed scientific studies that predict the end of the human race in the next century as a result of climate change. The scientific consensus, as represented by the assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, projects that climate change over this century and beyond will have increasingly negative impacts on human and natural systems, with the potential for impacts that are severe and, in some cases, irreversible. The evidence does not point to humanity going extinct because of climate change.
