An evening with a global warming skeptic

Bob_Carter If you haven't yet seen Professor Bob Carter (right) on his speaking tour denouncing the nonsense of man-made global warming, you have three chances left:

  • Wed 16, 7pm, Stratford T.E.T.Multi-Sports Centre, Portia St., Stratford.
  • Thur 17, Morrinsville
  • Fri 18, Auckland, Royal NZ Yacht Squadron, (includes dinner)

You may know of Bob. He is an internationally recognised expert on climate change -- a geologist from James Cook Uni in Australia, a graduate of Otago Bob_Carter_bio University, a member of the Climate Science Coalition, and he really knows his stuff. 

A friend went to see him last night in Masterton, and he tells me he was enormously impressive.  "It was a packed house of mainly local farmers. A few greenies there too, and he dealt with them ruthlessly but courteously. Some of the lines he came out with were almost verbatim quotes from George Reisman. Well worth seeing."

  3. Wow, I never thought I'd see my old town's TET multi-sports centre on a famous blog like this!

    I was there a few weeks ago and never guessed that Stratford would be getting the latest in anti-global-warming talks ...

  4. Are you from Stratford Luke?

    Me too.....I was born there. Needless to say its a great place!
