Climate Contrarian Bjørn Lomborg's Centre Dropped By Aussie University

"The University of Western Australia has handed back $4m in federal government funding to host a “consensus centre” with climate contrarian Bjørn Lomborg, saying that lack of support among its academics made the centre untenable.

But the federal education minister, Christopher Pyne, has vowed to find another university to host the Lomborg centre.

In a statement emailed to UWA staff and then published online late on Friday, UWA vice chancellor, Paul Johnson, said that strong opposition to the centre had put the university in a difficult position."
