Were it not for the founding principles of our western, rational, democratic traditions, where the scientific method and the application of reason and logic and entrepreneurial insight has provided us with the fruits of the most successful civilization in history, we would not have the time, resources and freedoms to ponder our existence.
Under these blessed conditions some still conspire to improve their position in their zero sum game, by playing on people's guilt, vanity and other human weaknesses, by undermining and whiteanting the very foundations of these valuable western tradtions which provide them with the time and resources to play their power games and run their scams.
Consequently, examples abound, where, under the pretext of saving or improving something, and in the determined absence or distortion of the application of reason and logic (and the scientific method), people's emotions are manipulated to their detriment, often with unintended, unforeseen and disastrous consequences.
There are those among us who feel so sure of their Anointed status, who from their 'we know best' vantage point feel compelled beyond reason and even evidence to the contrary to rearrange other people's lives in accordance with their worldview.
The only way these power games and scams can remain in play is where people are not equipped with the tools to recognise the fallacies of logic or absence of evidence; or where people practice a wilful blindness where they accrue some perceived benefit by going along with the dominant meme or zeitgeist.
One such questionable shibboleth is the notion that human carbon dioxide emissions is the 'major cause' of 'unprecedented, dangerous, runnaway global warming' which is now 'worse than we originally thought'.
The Lord Monckton Foundation exists to counter this unquestioning irrational acceptance and shall therefore conduct research, publish papers, educate students and the public and take every measure that may be necessary to restore the primacy and use of reason in science and public policy worldwide, especially insofar as they may bear upon the rights of the people fairly and fully to be informed, openly and freely to debate, and secretly by ballot to decide who shall govern them, what laws they shall live by and what imposts they shall endure.
