Lord Christopher Monckton - in NZ this week.


Wellington- Friday 5th August (Also in Whangarei on Saturday)

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.
