Welcome Down Under Lord Monckton
We at An Honest Climate Debate would like to welcome the knowledgeable and articulate Lord Monckton to Australia.
Lord Christopher Monckton has arrived in Australia to discuss the man made global warming theory. Professor Ian Plimer, authour of the bestselling book Heaven and Earth, will be accompanying Lord Monckton on his whirlwind Australian tour. For details on Lord Monckton and Ian Plimer’s tour dates and venues please see Jo Nova’s website here
He has already been on Australian tv and radio interviews this week. I especially enjoyed the interview on Channel 10. Here are a couple of snippets from the interview
…the point is let’s have a discussion on this. I will not be saying believe me. I will simply say here are the facts, study them for yourselves. Any fact you want to call me out on and say where did you get that from, I will tell you and you can go look it up for yourself..
…so you can make up your own mind, do not believe either side until you’ve thought it out for yourselves..
How refreshing it is to hear the above from Lord Monckton. How different it is from the likes of Al Gore, who refuse to debate and who are so quick with their ad hom attacks. No wonder the public are losing faith in the man made global warming scare.

Monckton applies the heat
By Andrew Bolt
Herald Sun, January 25, 2010
Christopher Monckton’s debate this morning with Australian IPCC reviewer Ben McNeil on Sunrise, a minor temple of the warming faith, did not go well – for the alarmists. My goodness, but McNeil did seem awfully green (again) for an academic who demands such drastic changes to the way we live.
Even David Koch, long a fierce preacher of the warming faith, seemed no longer so sure of his old gospel.
I suspect Monckton will cause a lot more damage to the warmists before his tour is over – not least by simply getting the hearing that many local sceptics have been denied:
CLIMATE sceptic Christopher Monckton says he has evidence climate change is not a problem and that Kevin Rudd’s emissions trading scheme is unnecessary.
The former adviser to British prime minister Margaret Thatcher said Mr Rudd carried out ”a 45-minute sustained personal attack” on him last November claiming he had no evidence on the effects of climate change.
“I’m going to say to the people of Australia, when your prime minister said I don’t have any evidence, here I am, here is my evidence, here is where I got it from,” Lord Monckton said in Sydney today.
The climate change sceptic will carry out an extensive 13-day lecture tour of Australia at an estimated cost of $100,000. The cost is being covered by two semi-retired Queensland engineers, John Smeed and Case Smit.
Lord Monckton claims climate change isn’t a problem for the planet and carbon dioxide emissions don’t contribute significantly to global warming. He claims world temperatures will rise by just half a degree (Celsius) by the end of the decade, compared with UN scientists’ prediction of a 3.5 degree rise.
