THE LORD MONCKTON FOUNDATION
As some of this website is still under construction, not all of the features, pages and projects are visible, however, some of these will be coming online over the coming weeks and months as we build our base.
We are introducing you slowly to our Charter and Vision (HERE) and providing a glimpse of some of the activities and projects we are planning. With your help, encouragement and input, we will bring these projects to fruition and together with you and others, we will make make a big difference.
We have only recently become a registered Charitable Institution to support the work of Lord Monckton in better educating the public on matters of great importance to our democratic traditions, science based civilisation and civil way of life.
We are concerned to improve things with a focus on four major program areas:
Media & Communications
The Lord Monckton Foundation will use its best endeavours to develop, promote and support better Education; encourage the active pursuit of empirical Science whilst fighting the range of 'Post Normal', 'Consensus' and 'Settled' activities purporting to be or masquerading as Science (particularly in, but not confined to, ‘climate science’); provide a forum, tools and resources for evidence based Public Policy formulation, critique and deployment; establish Media and Communications resources, activities and strategies designed to ensure more rigorous questioning and critique of those fashionable and powerful ideas and policies which can so easily take root, unimpaired as they currently are, by open debate, rational assessment, proper due diligence or any understanding of consequences (intended or otherwise).
For a little information on Lord Monckton himself (see here).
Make sure you view our BLOG for breaking news and record of interesting observations and research project outcomes (see here).

Warming Rate Graph Series
See first Monthly Graph HERE
Global Warming this millennium is currently, barely significant!
Warming, but nothing like as fast as predicted:
January 2001 to April 2013 show a 0.5 Cº/century linear-regression rate of warming trend.
This is less than a quarter of the 2.3 Cº/century central projection of warming since 2005 in IPCC (2013: in press)
The current real-world warming rate is below half the IPCC’s least projection of 1.1 Cº/century rate of warmimg
The IPCC’s high-end warming rate projection already seems far-fetched at 3.6 Cº/century.

Lord Monckton has entrusted this initiative to the Lord Monckton Foundation. He has already established and published this particular Graph Series and is now in the process of transferring the ongoing update management systems and our hope is to have this automated and producing this Graph Series on a regular basis very soon.
50 to 1
A New Program Initiative
The Lord Monckton Foundation is proud to announce that it is reaching out to the general public in a new and exciting way. In accordance with our Chartered purpose to "educate... the public and take every measure that may be necessary to restore the primacy and use of reason in science and public policy worldwide" we are embarking on an ambitious project with a view to cutting out the 'middle men' in the climate debate. We aretaking the hard facts to the public directly through YouTube.
The project is called '50 to 1', and its key purpose is to communicate Lord Christopher Monckton's recent calculations on the cost of climate mitigation vs the cost of adaptation. '50 to 1' is the perfect title because that is the cost difference. It is 50 times more expensive to attempt to STOP climate change than it is to ADAPT in the event that adaptation becomes necessary. And this conclusion can be reached by straightforward mathematical formulae which are taken directly from the IPCC themselves, as well as other 'consensus' sources within the world of climate change alarmism.
This has the potential to be a powerful and 'game changing' video. It has the potential to help the public really understand just how badly they've been taken for a ride by politicians imposing carbon taxes and 'green schemes'. By the time we're done, people around the world will be demanding an end to the madness that is 'carbon emissions mitigation'.
But we need your help to make it happen. High quality video production is expensive and time-consuming. This can't just be a handy-cam job. We need a highly professional, fast paced, punchy and engaging video. One which will be so enjoyable, AND compelling, that people will watch it, and then tell their FRIENDS to watch it. To communicate such potentially 'dry and boring' information as this, in a fun and compelling way requires a great deal of planning as well as careful filming, loads of animations and a great sound design including music and sound effects.
This video will require significant travel. We are interviewing internationally renowned experts such as President Vaclav Klaus, Anthony Watts, Fred Singer, Henry Ergas and others. A camera crew will need to literally lap the planet to filmthese experts and capture their thoughts and views on the current state of climate mitigation etc.
Long story short, we have calculated a budget of $156,000 all together. Needless to say we don't have that in the piggy bank beside our bed, so we're running a crowd funding campaign to try and gather the money we need to make this video happen.
You can watch a short video which explains everything you need to know HERE at 50 to 1 and there, you can follow the links to donate.
To see the '50 to 1' calculations in detail, please click on Lord Monckton’s one page briefing HERE and a PDF briefing HERE.
We will also soon have some more details on our various other programs coming up on this site, including details of how you as a supporter of Lord Monckton's work might conribute to some or all of these programs where "The Lord Monckton Foundation shall 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."
We are doing this because we are hoping to help our western rational civilization avoid sinking into a new 'Dark Ages'; in short, we are concerned that as our way of life and our socio-economic organism is always only one generation away from failing to pass on our western, rational, scientific traditions and thus, failing our children in their 'pursuit of happiness'. This notion of a descent into a new 'Dark Age' is examined briefly (here).
Inevitably, the nexus between Education, Science, Public Policy & Media currently intersect over the favoured hypothesis of the anointed regulatory classes on the nature, cause and extent of climate change. The hypothesis seems to go something like this:
Increasing human carbon dioxide emissions is the major cause of increasing atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide which is the major cause of rapidly accelerating, unprecedented, unnatural and dangerous global warming which is the major cause of rapidly accelerating, unprecedented, unnatural and dangerous drought; sea level rise; hurricane events; disease; floods and almost everything else that is now 'wrong' with the world.
Many of the papers referred to on this website demonstrate how this hypothesis has been falsified. The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley has on his recent US tour presented some of that evidence in his Testimony to the California State Assembly on 21 March 2012 (see here).
In the meantime, if you have any queries on our programs or on how you might contribute, or on any other matter, please feel free to let us know by contacting us on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you wish to make suggestions or offer assistance or otherwise communicate with our Board or our Chief Executive Officer please email our CEO, Chris Dawson on email@example.com.
We anticipate 'opening the doors' on an increasing number of programs & projects during the course of 2013.
