As MP Burke rightly states: “We should remember, when those with something to lose ignored the information about the dangers of smoking and asbestos, some very real victims emerged.”
Well said, and as regular DeSmog readers know full well, many of the same people who told us not to worry about tobacco smoke and asbestos are now telling us not to worry about climate change.
Here are a few examples:

“The US has spent billions of dollars removing asbestos from schools, and for no good health reason.” (link)
On Climate Change
“So, the global climate doesn't seem to be warming, causing considerable embararassment to scientists.” (link)
