Climate Science Denial Group Trustee Leaves Anglia Ruskin University Board

Read time: 3 mins

A prominent economist who is a trustee of the UK’s principal climate science denial group is no longer Chair of the Board of Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) after completing the maximum term allowed for governors.

Jerome Booth’s departure comes after hundreds of current and former faculty and students sent an open letter last year to ARU’s Board complaining that his association with the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) “brings our university into disrepute”.
