Lord Monckton’s visit to NZ

AgScience didn’t keep track of Viscount Christopher Monckton, the climate change sceptic, during his New Zealand visit. But the bloggers at Sciblogs kept an eye on him and on media coverage.

The latest post (here) puts the record straight on something that brought Myles Allen into the viscount’s considerations. Allen is Professor of Geosystem Science in the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford and Head of the Climate Dynamics Group in the University’s Department of Physics.

The Sciblogs post says –

In other words, Monckton is badly misrepresenting Allen’s views, and presumably hoping that no-one down here in little old New Zealand will notice.

An earlier post (here) gives a rundown on Monckton’s nightmare week in New Zealand.

The NZ Herald’s Michele Hewitson interviewed Lord Monckton here. She didn’t get the chance to ask all her questions. He walked out.

Lord Monckton did have his champions.

Among them, at Gotcha, Travis Poulson took issue with scientists (here) and the NZ Herald (here).

The latter post includes the contents of letters Lord Monckton wrote to the NZ Climate Science Coalition and the editor of the NZ Herald.
