The argument that climate science is in fact climate politics is the main theme of man-made climate change sceptic Christopher Monckton who spoke in Tauranga last night.
With other scientists beginning to accept the evidence that there has been no global warming for 16 years, Chris – the 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley - focuses on who benefits from the global warming belief system.
While few are yet familiar with Agenda 21, terms like “Sustainable Development”, “Smart Growth”, and “Renewable Energy”, Chris says they are now part and parcel of both local and national politics.
An online search for some of the key concepts of Agenda 21 reveals most New Zealand local government long term policy has been explicitly implementing Agenda 21 for nearly 20 years, and that it dictates many aspects of people's lives.
The underlying goals and intentions of Agenda 21 makes the global warming, and climate change debate infinitely clearer, says Chris. The motivations, purposes and methodology of those who persist in alarmism on climate change, in the face of the mounting scientific evidence to the contrary and the 16 year ‘pause' in rising global average surface temperatures is more transparent.
As the evidence increasingly contradicts the theory of greenhouse gas impacts on global temperatures the alarm is morphing to climate disruption, climate chaos, extreme weather and other scary stuff, since the temperatures are not keeping in step with rising CO2.
Chris is visiting New Zealand as part of his Climate Freedom Tour and from Tauranga he heads south to Gisborne, Hastings, Palmerston North, New Plymouth, Paraparaumu and Wellingon before heading for South Island centres.
