Climate sceptic Lord Monckton gets a rock star reception
The Noosa Journal, 6 February 2010
NOOSA: The man described by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd as being “part of a worldwide conspiracy of sceptics’’ received a rock star welcome when he arrived in Noosa on Saturday.
Hundreds of people queued around the building to hear Lord Christopher Monckton speak on global warming at The J in Noosa Junction.
Fears the controversial aristocrat would receive an aggressive reception went unfounded as the crowd cheered and clapped.
Despite extra space being made available at The J, around 100 people were turned away. But so thrilled was Lord Monckton with his welcome that he delivered an impromptu 15 minute speech in the carpark for those who missed out.
Lord Monckton told The Noosa Journal he was in Australia to deliver the truth on global warming and to exercise his right of reply to Mr Rudd’s “imprudent 45-minute rant’’.
Praising Noosa residents Case Smit and John Smeed for organising the visit, Lord Monckton said that “evil only triumphs when good men do nothing and these were two men who were not prepared to do nothing’’.
Lord Monckton told the audience he was here to tell the truth, as he saw it, and prove global warming was a myth invented by governments to control the population and make money.
