Lord Christopher Monckton is on a speaking tour in New Zealand this month, and appeared on New Zealand’s Channel 3 News today to discuss whether global warming ought to be a concern.

Monckton emphasized that man’s influence on global warming is not big enough to worry about, and even if it was as big as the UN IPCC claims, it is about fifty times cheaper to adapt to it later than to try to stop it now.

He also pointed out that the 17 year pause of global warming is significant, since in 2008–when there had been only about a 10 year pause in warming–the climate modelers said a pause in warming would have to last for at least 15 years to indicate a discrepancy with the models.
