Lord Christopher Monckton
(The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley)
Confirmed to visit New Zealand 4-7th August 2011.
Climate Realists (NZ) in association with the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition are pleased to announce a visit by Lord Christopher Monckton to New Zealand in early August 2011.
……….He is probably the world’s most aristocratic climate skeptic – but more than that he is one of the world’s most articulate exponents of the real science of natural climate change and the need by the world’s people, animals and plants, for the life-giving carbon dioxide that is labelled by ignoramuses as a pollutant. He has a brilliant analytical mind…… (Terry Dunleavy, NZCSC)
DETAILS NOW FINALISED:
Auckland- Thursday 4th August
10am-11.30am NewstalkZB with Leighton Smith
12.15pm Business lunch- Northern Club
Lunch with Lord Monckton
Global climate change is seen by many as the world’s biggest threat. But is it real … or are we subjects to bureaucratically manipulated groupthink? How has the science behind climate change been formulated and communicated?
- Global temperature change is well within natural historical cycles
- The so-called spate of extreme weather is a myth: There were more cyclones in the 1800s than today
- Consensus (of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [IPCC] scientists) does not make climate change true
- If you choose your time-frame carefully you can make any trend look as if it is increasing or decreasing
- Al Gore’s movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ is riddled with inconvenient errors
Lord Monckton will explain why carbon dioxide is beneficial to Earth and mankind, and is not a “pollutant”, that emissions, mainly natural, cannot and will not adversely affect natural rises and falls in global temperature that have occurred through the centuries. Any attempts by humans to “control” the temperature of the Earth cannot succeed, and the imposition of charges such as our ETS tax are pain without any possible gain. After his address, Lord Monckton will welcome questions from the audience.
Lord Monckton is a most entertaining speaker – no matter which side of the global warming debate you may sit.
This will be a most entertaining Lunch and we urge everyone to come and bring a guest.

5pm – 7.45pm Discussion- Professor Geoff Austin talks to Lord Christopher Monckton
Global climate change is seen by many as the world’s biggest threat. But is it real … or are we subject to bureaucratically manipulated groupthink? How has the science behind climate change been formulated and communicated?
This Public Relations Institute event will take the form of a discussion of man-made global warming issues between Viscount Christopher Monckton and Auckland atmospheric physicist Professor Geoff Austin.
Leading climate change skeptic Lord Christopher Monckton – hereditary British peer, journalist, businessman and entertaining public speaker – says:
* Global temperature change is well within natural historical cycles.
* The so called spate of extreme weather is a myth: There were more cyclones in the 1800s than today.
* Consensus (of the International Panel on Climate Change scientists) does not make climate change true.
* If you choose your time-frame carefully you can make any trend look as if it is increasing or decreasing.
* Al Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth is riddled with inconvenient errors.
Prof Austin will put to Lord Monckton some of the arguments that there is a human component to warming.

Wellington- Friday 5th August
Lecture: Lord Christopher Monckton
Is Global Climate Change another Y2K?
PRINZ Central Region has arranged for leading climate change skeptic, Lord Christopher Monckton, to address members at a special lunch-time event.
Don’t miss this thought-provoking presentation!!
Readers of Flat Earth (www.flatearthnews.net) will be familiar with media-generated hysteria over issues like the fizzer that was Y2K, the evils of heroin (read the book!), pandemics like SARS and Avian Flu, and of course, the hype around Climate Change.
Are these issues real or are they generated by vested interests? Why do “respected commentators” repeat these alarmist messages? Why do we, as a profession, promote them, and why does the media grab them with alacrity and reproduce them?
Global climate change is seen by many as the world’s biggest threat. But is it real? Or are we subject to bureaucratically-manipulated groupthink? How has the science behind climate change been formulated and communicated?
Leading climate change skeptic Lord Christopher Monckton – British peer, journalist, businessman and entertaining public speaker – has a thought-provoking view, both about climate change and about how the message is being hijacked.
Lord Monckton’s presentation is a case study reminder of the duty of professional communicators to investigate the facts behind what we are being asked to communicate. As a professional communicator, you mustn’t miss this challenging presentation.

Climate Realists’ Network
was formed in July 2009.
We link to many other like-minded groups throughout New Zealand.
Our main form of communication is by way of fortnightly newsletters to our members.
Our website contains a number of relevant articles of interest; however anyone wanting to explore the issue of climate on a much deeper level is encouraged to check out our LINKS which provide a broad range of websites with endless hours of reading to suit any taste.
Our position is that:
- we believe that mankind’s activities have a minimal effect on the world’s climate.
- the cost of an ETS is unsustainable,
- the introduction of an ETS in New Zealand may attempt to make us look good to our export markets but it will have no effect whatsoever on the climate, and in time it will destroy New Zealand’s agricultural base.
Opportunity for people to sign up for the Climate Realists’ Network newsletters
Our aim is to:
- raise awareness of the political manouverings regarding climate change and the Emissions Trading Scheme in New Zealand
- keep people informed of any relevant meetings and events
- pass on pertinent websites and climate change information
- keep in contact regarding political developments and any possible action necessary on our part
We endeavour to be a link between concerned people throughout the country, and we would love to have you, and any like-minded people you may know, on board.
Contact us to sign up for our fortnightly newsletters.
