Financial Interests and Funding

In the interests of openness and transparency I here declare my professional sources of income and the funders of my research over recent years.

I am employed by the UEA as a professor and receive a negotiable professorial salary.

I also receive an annual honorarium of £5,000 from Wiley-Blackwell in recognition of my duties as Editor-in-Chief of the journal WIREs Climate Change.

I receive, on average, aggregate payments of less than £2,000 per year for various media writings, appearances and public speaking fees, plus royalties on my book Why We Disagree About Climate Change which has sold over 13,000 copies.

I am currently a co-investigator on a £216,000 Leverhulme Trust grant and I currently supervise three PhD students two of whom are funded by the ESRC and one by the UEA.

In the last 10 years I have been principal (or co-) investigator on research grants and contracts totalling about £30 million, primarily about £16m from RCUK (for the Tyndall Centre) and around €12m from EU FP6 (for the ADAM project).  Over the last 20 years I have also received smaller research grants or contracts amounting to around £4 million from, inter alia, Defra, MAFF, DfID, WWF-International, UNDP, Scottish Executive, EU Commission, MRC, NERC, EPSRC, IPCC, Hadley Centre, Royal Society, European Environment Agency, Leverhulme Trust.  See Current Projects a more complete list.
