Lord of the Skeptics rings a warming bell in Australia
Lord Christopher Monckton is the world leader of the climate warming skeptics and is currently on a lecture tour of Australia. Lord Monckton’s Sydney lecture saw a thousand people pack the Grand Ballroom of the Sheraton on the Park Hotel with another thousand people ( still queuing outside) turned away.
Lord Monckton is one of the best speakers I personally have ever come across and the other 999 skeptics and eager listeners were equally enthralled. I have to say I am a climate warming skeptic. I believe Keven Rudd and his sidekick Penny Wong are in for a rough trot trying to get their climate change program off the ground.
I chatted with Dick Smith who professed to not being a completely converted skeptic on the subject, but 2GB’s Alan Jones, who M.C.’d the lecture, certainly is. Professor Ian Plimer also had a few words to say and was busy signing copies of his new book ‘Heaven and Earth’ that he said took him 40 years to write.
MiSociety ponders - Wouldn’t any Australian politician just adore to be able to crow about drawing such a huge enthusiastic crowd for a public meeting/lecture.
