Boycotting the U.N. climate summit – Awareness grows that faulty science would keep millions in the dark

 By Willie Soon and Christopher Monckton

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sensibly declined to attend yet another climate summit — this time called by Ban Ki-moon for Tuesday in New York under the auspices of the United Nations — which profits handsomely from much-exaggerated climate scares. Chinese President Xi Jinping and German Chancellor Angela Merkel likewise intend to skip the event.

Environmentalists have complained about Mr. Modi’s decision. They say rising atmospheric carbon dioxide will cause droughts, melt Himalayan ice, and poison lakes and waterways in the Indian subcontinent. (more…)

Bad boy smashes U.N. wall of silence

OPINION

From Christopher Monckton of Arabia in Doha, Qatar

I have been a bad boy. At the U.N. climate conference in Doha, I addressed a plenary session of national negotiating delegates though only accredited as an observer.

Tsk, tsk. See me after class. Five demerits. Get down and give me 20!

One just couldn’t resist. There they all were, earnestly outbidding each other to demand that the West should keep them in pampered luxury for the rest of their indolent lives, and all on the pretext of preventing global warming that has now become embarrassingly notorious for its long absence.

No one was allowed to give the alternative – and scientifically correct – viewpoint. The U.N.’s wall of silence was rigidly in place. (more…)

Durban: what the media are not telling you

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley in Durban, South Africa

DURBAN, South Africa — “No high hopes for Durban.” “Binding treaty unlikely.” “No deal this year.” Thus ran the headlines. The profiteering UN bureaucrats here think otherwise. Their plans to establish a world government paid for by the West on the pretext of dealing with the non-problem of “global warming” are now well in hand. As usual, the mainstream media have simply not reported what is in the draft text which the 194 states parties to the UN framework convention on climate change are being asked to approve.

Behind the scenes, throughout the year since Cancun, the now-permanent bureaucrats who have made highly-profitable careers out of what they lovingly call “the process” have been beavering away at what is now a 138-page document. Its catchy title is “Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-Term Cooperative Action Under the Convention — Update of the amalgamation of draft texts in preparation of [one imagines they mean 'for'] a comprehensive and balanced outcome to be presented to the Conference of the Parties for adoption at its seventeenth session: note by the Chair.” In plain English, these are the conclusions the bureaucracy wants.

Update on Copenhagen process

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

Question from SPPI reader:

Can you please tell me what is the latest news about the One-world-government treaty that was in the works a couple of years ago?? 

Reply by Christopher Monckton:

Many thanks for your enquiry. I am glad to say that, partly as a result of the adverse publicity which news of the proposed Copenhagen Treaty attracted, the Treaty failed at Copenhagen. However, a number of largely-unreported meetings since then, under the German Government, have taken place in Bonn, where – to summarize not unfairly – the principal provisions of the failed draft are now being introduced little by little, and by stealth. The process is similar to that by which the European tyranny, with the acquiescence of the governments of Europe, gradually accreted supreme legislative power to itself and, in effect, extinguished all but the mere appearance of democracy throughout its dismal empire.  (more…)

Boycott call by lobby group GetUp is nothing but blackmail

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

ONE of the things we must never lose in this country is our freedom to speak our mind.

But this week many chief executives got a letter from a lobby group called GetUp, whose founding directors included Bill Shorten, now the Assistant Treasurer.

Some extracts:

Dear CEO,

You may be aware that … the Australian Food and Grocery Council has reportedly put its support behind a multi-million dollar campaign to fight proposed legislation to put a price on carbon pollution … (more…)

Some years ago–1997 in fact–I was invited to participate in a climate change group grope in Denver hosted by former Colorado Senator Tim Wirth, who left the Senate first for a Clinton Administration State Department post, and then to be the head of the UN Foundation, an entity set in motion by Ted Turner’s billion-dollar pledge to the United Nations–a pledge that Turner later had to renege on after his fortunes shrank in the aftermath of the disastrous AOL-Time Warner merger. But that’s another story. (more…)

Rear View: Lambert Spin Machine

Lambert, victim of his own spin?

Spin Cycle Science Cartoon
Lambert has replied to the post I did that pointed out that his use of the fake “Pinker Tape” in the debate with Monckton was a cheap-shot ambush with no real significance.

As usual, his reply includes major claims like “a dishonest post” and ”there’s no wiggle room here”, and, as usual, he can’t back them up.

Dishonest?  I quote Pinker as saying:

[I]f we give Christopher Monckton the benefit of doubt and assume that he meant “the impact of clouds on the surface shortwave radiation” than it can pass.” (more…)

Rear View: Monckton and Abrahams

Abraham surrenders to Monckton. Uni of St Thomas endorses untruths.

What do you do when someone speaks against your faith, sounds authoritative, well informed, and backs everything up with lots of evidence? If you’re sane, you change your mind.

If you are John P. Abraham, a lecturer in fluid mechanics at the University of St. Thomas, Minnesota, you write to a few select scientists distorting what your opponent said, and then collect the infuriated responses. Abraham went on to assemble a list of things Christopher Monckton didn’t say,  complained about things he didn’t cite (even if he did and it’s printed on his slides), pretended he couldn’t find sources (but didn’t take ten minutes to ask), and created a litany of communication pollution in an effort to denigrate Monckton’s character.

The untruths and fabrications have come back to bite him. (more…)

Climate change: A new religion complete with evangelists, tithes, indulgences and superstitions

By William Dove

Last night BBC Four aired a documentary which took a look at climate change sceptics and in particular one of the movement’s most prominent poster boys, Lord Christopher Monckton, 3rd Viscount of Brenchley.

The programme, like climate science itself, attracted controversy before it even came on air. James Delingpole, a vocal climate change sceptic who appears in the documentary, yesterday called the programme “another hatchet job” on his Telegraph blog.

The presenter of the programme, Rupert Murray, concluded by saying that despite the arguments of the sceptics he did not want to take the risk that they were wrong. He was, he said, willing to give up some of his freedom if it helped to stop climate change. (more…)

Mythologising Monckton

by Ben Pile

There is only one climate sceptic in the world. His name is Christopher Monckton. This is the only conclusion you could draw from Rupert Murray’s film, Meet the Climate Sceptics,  broadcast on BBC4 tonight.

The film portrays Monckton single-handedly attacking the entire global scientific establishment, sabotaging any possibility of climate legislation in the USA, and thereby demolishing any possible global deal on emissions-reduction through the UNFCCC process. Along the way he destroys Kevin Rudd’s administration and the Australian ETS… In Murray’s fantasy, Christopher Monckton is to climate scepticism what James Bond is to the UK. (more…)

Cancun: The Abdication of the West

The Abdication of the West

by The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley | December 9, 2010

from Cancun, Mexico

I usually add some gentle humor to these reports. Not today. Read this and weep. Notwithstanding the carefully-orchestrated propaganda to the effect that nothing much will be decided at the UN climate conference here in Cancun, the decisions to be made here this week signal nothing less than the abdication of the West. The governing class in what was once proudly known as the Free World is silently, casually letting go of liberty, prosperity, and even democracy itself. No one in the mainstream media will tell you this, not so much because they do not see as because they do not bl**dy care.

The 33-page Note (FCCC/AWGLCA/2010/CRP.2) by the Chairman of the “Ad-Hoc Working Group on Long-Term Co-operative Action under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change”, entitled Possible elements of the outcome, reveals all. Or, rather, it reveals nothing, unless one understands what the complex, obscure jargon means. All UNFCCC documents at the Cancun conference, specifically including Possible elements of the outcome, are drafted with what is called “transparent impenetrability”. The intention is that the documents should not be understood, but that later we shall be told they were in the public domain all the time, so what are we complaining about? (more…)

Mercury rising

From The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley

Cancun, Mexico

I am in the plenary session hall at the Moon Palace, where diligent readers of this humble blog will recall that Ms. Figurehead, the president of the UN climate conference here in Cancun, opened these quaint proceedings last week with a prayer to the Moon Goddess of the ancient dwellers in what is now Mexico.

The vast, characterless session hall is known – appropriately enough – as the Cenote hall. Those familiar with the Spanish dialects of the New World will recognize the appropriateness of this designation. For a cenote is a sinkhole. Cenotes are widespread in the Mexican jungle, beneath great limestone caps. They were regarded as sacred by the “first nations”, as the indigenous peoples are now coyly called, and archaeologists have had much fun diving beneath the waters in the cenotes to recover all manner of pre-Columbian artefacts and assorted archaeological knick-knacks.

It is Easier to be Critical than Correct

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

By Joseph A Olson

Suzanne Goldenberg, Guardian Newspaper

In the case of Climatology, you must be critical in order to be correct.  With the notable exception of the Dr Josef Mengele School of Medicine, there has been no greater failure of science in all of history than the global warming fraud.  And Mengele may be given more credit than he deserves.

Even the worst of us can serve as bad examples.  Parents might want to use Arnold as proof that a decade of pumping both iron and steroids will atrophy your brain.  And a note to the political puppetmasters, it is bad typecasting to place an action figure in a non-fiction environment. (more…)

Who are the deniers now?

By Roger Helmer MEP.

On Friday I went to Norwich at the invitation of the Vice Chancellor of the University of East Anglia (UEA), home of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) which has been much in the news in the last twelve months.

I had been invited following a correspondence with one of UEA’s academic staff.  A couple of months before, I had asked if I could bring a couple of colleagues.  They said yes.  A week or so later, they asked for the names (and any special dietary requirements).  I replied Lord Monckton of Brenchley, and James Delingpole of the Daily Telegraph.  For the next week or so I held my breath, fearing that they might not like to receive two prominent sceptics, but there was no further response.  Not, at least, until a couple of days before the meeting, when I received an apologetic e-mail.  They had just noticed who my proposed companions were.

Apparently protocol would not allow the VC to meet “political activists”.  If Lord Monckton and Delingpole  had any questions, they were free to approach the UEA’s Press Office.  (In passing, I have to say it seems rather odd to describe Lord Monckton as a “political activist”.  An hereditary Peer of the Realm, a former adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, a highly respected commentator on the climate issue, and Deputy Leader of the party that came in second place in the 2009 euro-elections.  In any case, I like to regard myself, in my small way, as a political activist, and the VC was prepared to see me.)
