HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University's College of Business will present a lecture by Lord Christopher Monckton, one of the world's leading climate warming skeptics.
Monckton, the Third Viscount Monckton of Brentley, will present "Is CO2 Mitigation Cost-Effective?" Oct. 2, at 7:30 p.m., in the KIVA auditorium in the Southeastern Teacher Education Center. The program is free and open to the public.
Monckton is a businessman, newspaper editor, the inventor of "Eternity" puzzles, of the Sudoku X puzzles and of a promising new treatment for infectious disease. A Cambridge-trained classical architect and public orator, he has been called the "high priest" of climate skepticism.
Well known among those in the fields of political science and biology, Monckton has spoken worldwide against the concept of global warming. He has testified four times before the U.S. Congress on climate science and economics and is credited with influencing Republicans in both the House and Senate to reject collaboration with Democrats on the climate question, preventing the "cap-and-tax" bill on carbon dioxide from passing the Senate.
Credited with discovering evidence that a group of scientists, officials and politicians had manipulated data to exaggerate the threat of global warming, Monckton has authored more than 100 papers on the climate issue for layman. He is currently writing a book entitled "Climate of Freedom," which is expected to be a worldwide bestseller among his millions of followers on YouTube and Facebook.
