Lord Christopher Monckton in San Diego

Jerry Stratton, March 25, 2012

I went to see the Americans Protecting Private Property Rights presentation by Lord Christopher Monckton about the economic and scientific fallacies of the anthropogenic global warming movement last night. It was mostly stuff I’ve seen before, mainly from the climategate emails and software leak.

I mainly went because I keep hearing his name come up on sites like Watts Up With That? He is definitely an engaging speaker, so I recommend seeing him if you get the chance.

A lot of it was about California’s AB32 and how much money it is going to cost us for how little benefit—even assuming the most drastic predictions, despite such predictions uniformly failing in the past.

California’s CO2 tax compared to its best-case scenario.

If AB32 succeeds as well as it is claimed to by California’s politicians, this is what we save.

March 29, 2012: Doo Doo Economics: Lord Monckton Battles Global Warming Mad Men

Doo Doo Economics comments on the economic issues that Monckton talked about:

Lord Christopher Monckton gave a real Reason Rally at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice Theater at the University of San Diego. The crowd rose to their feet on several occasions as Lord Monckton presented the truth about global warming “science” and the consequences to human freedom. The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley mixed good humor and good information for an terrific presentation.

“The impact on the economy is apparent. The impact on the environment is not.”
