Oh dear. “Lord” Christopher Monckton is in New Zealand to convince us all that climate change is a communist plot, or something (if no one makes a crack about Wellington’s coldest day on record “proving” “global warming” is a myth I will be amazed).
Annnnnnnd one of his “lectures” is being organised by the Public Relations Institute of New Zealand, and, according to an email sent to PRINZ members,* sponsored by Four Winds Communications, whose celebrated two-day workshop for junior PR practitioners must be fascinating.
The email states,
PRINZ Central Region has arranged for leading climate change skeptic, Lord Christopher Monckton, to address members at a special lunch-time event.
Don’t miss this thought-provoking presentation!!
One can only hope PRINZ actually mean for attendees to extract important PR lessons about not lying about being a member of the House of Lords/Nobel Prize winner for credence, and knowing what the heck you’re talking about before opening your gob, with a strong object lesson in how to make oneself look like a twit and the power of Google and blogs to expose one’s bullshit.
*Ew, I’m feeling a tad Cameron Slater-y.
