Stance on Climate Change
“Climate change is the biggest scam in the history of the world – a $1.5 trillion-a-year conspiracy against the taxpayer, every cent, penny and centime of which ends in the pockets of the wrong kind of people, none of which goes towards a cause remotely worth funding, all of it a complete and utter waste,” Delingpole wrote at Breitbart. 
In an episode of This Week, Delingpole described Donald Trump as “Amazing” and lauded his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement: 
“Let’s cut the crap. Donald Trump is amazing. The US economy is going gangbusters. The DOW is soaring. Growth is over 3%. Hourly wages are two-and-a-half percent higher than this time last year. Unemployment for African Americans is at record lows.
“And after Trump’s sweeping tax reforms, something that lesser Republicans have been trying and failing to achieve for years, we can expect massive growth ahead.
“And because he’s so frank and fearless, he’s even dared to take on the green crazies. He’s brushed off all their scaremongering nonsense and told it like it is: global warming is just an excuse to bomb the global economy back to the dark ages.
Au revoir, Paris Climate Accord. Hello freedom, scientific integrity, and prosperity.”

Writing of Breitbart‘s Steve Bannon, who was chosen as Donald Trump’s chief strategest in November 2016: 
“One of his pet peeves is the great climate-change con. It’s partly why he recruited a notorious skeptic like myself […] “Basically, we won.”

In an article titled “Climate Change: The Greatest-Ever Conspiracy Against The Taxpayer, Delingpole wrote at Breitbart:
“[N]ow we have all those eco-friendly wind turbines. Or as I call them bird-slicing, bat-chomping eco-crucifixes.” 
“[I]t really doesn’t matter whether you believe in global warming or not because here’s the reality: All that money we’re being to spend on the global warming industry – that $1.5 trillion I mentioned earlier siphoned straight out of taxpayers’ pockets – it isn’t going to make the blindest bit of difference.” 
“I call climate change ‘the gift that goes on giving’ because day in day out I get an endless stream of stories to write about the corruption, incompetence, skullduggery of the climate alarmism industry.”
