"When I ask him how he feels about the label of 'climate-change sceptic' (although some environmental campaigners would choose the word 'denier'), the peer, who was also Thatcher's energy secretary, says: 'I would rather you call me a climate-change dissenter because my objection is to the policies that are being pursued.
