goose canada coats goose canada coats Downing St gags chief adviser on global warming



The Prime Minister has told his chief scientist to avoid talking to journalists about climate change in an attempt to calm the Bush administrations concerns over the advisers outspoken criticisms of the US Government.



The instruction was made public after the press officer of Sir David King, Mr Blairs chief scientist, left details of prepared answers to 136 questions and a memo from Number 10 in the press room of the worlds biggest general science meeting.



Sir David has attacked the Bush administration for its failure to take a leading role on curbing emissions of greenhouse gases, because climate c goose canada coats hange is the most severe problem we are facing today more serious even than the threat of terrorism.



Last month Mr Blair tried to calm the controversy at a Parliamentary committee meeting by saying that, while terrorism and global warming are both of critical urgency, you can get into a rather cerebral debate about which is more important.



The current is goose canada coats sue of Science reports that Downing Street remained sufficiently concerned for Mr Blairs private secretary, Ivan Rogers, to send Sir David a memo dated Feb 10 advising him to decline interview requests from the UK or US national media during a visit to the American Association for the Advancement of Science AAAS in Seattle, where Sir David was talking about global warming.



The memo said that this sort of discussion does not help us achieve our wider policy aims and distracts from our wider efforts to engage the US on climate change.



The memo and other documents related to the controversy were on a computer disk obtained by a freelance journalist Mike Martin, after it was inadvertently left in the AAAS press room by Sir Davids personal press secretary, Lucy BruntJenner.



The disk, which Miss BruntJenner co goose canada coats nfirms was genuine, contained mock exchanges that Mr Martin said suggested Sir David was ready to tone down his rhetoric about how, as he put it, the US government is failing to take up the challenge of global warming.



In one Sir David was prepared to say the value of comparisons between the death toll of climate change and terrorism would be highly questionable, since we are talking about threats that are intrinsically different.



Miss BruntJenner said the memo did not muzzle Sir David and that there were opportunities to talk to him at the conference. goose canada coats
