Sir David, 85, said he believed that global warming was inevitable but that everything possible should be done to slow the process.
However, he added that said that large-scale geoengineering projects - such schemes to remove carbon monoxide from the atmosphere – were problematic.
”And they may say 'Yes, we are absolutely confident about the science' but what about all those other people who don't know about that?
“It's, dare I say the word, fascist.”
