Christopher Monckton, Renowned Anthropogenic Climate Change Sceptic and UKIP Lead Candidate for Mid Scotland & Fife, spoke to an audience of anti wind farm protesters, at Balfron High School on Tuesday 26th April 2011 starting at 7.30pm. Christopher highlighted the lunacy, being promoted by the other parties, of turning Scotland into a giant wind farm with no benefit to the people, countryside or carbon levels.
Viscount Christopher Monckton of Brenchley, is the UK Independence Party’s spokesman on Environmental Issues, specialising in debunking the myth of global warming. He lives in Carie, Loch Rannoch with his wife Juliet and strongly opposes the SNP and EU plans, to turn Scotland and especially the Highlands into a glorified wind farm destroying the natural beauty, which brings in so many visitors and employment to the area.

Previously he has been editor, consulting editor, managing editor of various national newspapers. He was a member of 10 Downing Street Policy Unit, 1982-1986
As a former Prime Ministerial adviser on scientific and domestic policy to Margaret Thatcher, Lord Monckton advised her in 1986 that “global warming” might be a problem and recommended that it be investigated. Lord Monckton is recognized internationally as an expert on the climate question. He has had papers on the determination of climate sensitivity published in the reviewed literature and on the internet, and has given speeches, lectures and physics-faculty seminars on the subject all over the world. Twice in 2010 he has testified before the US Congress, but on a third occasion, when the elected Republican minority had chosen him to respond to testimony by Al Gore before the Energy and Commerce Committee of the US Congress, the Democrat majority rejected the ranking Minority member’s chosen witness for the first time since Congress was founded, precipitating a constitutional crisis.
