Man Claims Sacked For His Green Beliefs

by | 20th, March 2009

THE new religion of global warming has its persecutors, allegedly:

Mr Nicholson, 41, was made redundant while head of sustainability at Grainger, Britain’s biggest residential property investment company, in July last year.  In the first case of its kind he has been given permission to sue his former employers for unfair dismissal, arguing that his beliefs on the environment prompted clashes with other senior executives, and led to his sacking.

Do you believe? Do you dare to? First they came for the Al Goreans…

Mr Nicholson said that his frustrations were underlined when the Rupert Dickinson, the chief executive, “showed contempt for the need to cut carbon emissions by flying out a member of the IT staff to Ireland to deliver his BlackBerry that he had left behind in London”… He said that Grainger’s executives would turn up for meetings in “some of the most high polluting cars on the road”.

The defence:

Grainger sought to have Mr Nicholson’s case struck out arguing that his views on climate change were based on fact and science, not on philosophical belief.


This case could run…
