In today’s holiday, best-of, edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, we look back to the spring where Heartland led a delegation of experts to the Vatican to supply an opposition voice to the U.N. led climate summit preceding Pope Francis’ environment encyclical. In this podcast, we listen in as Director of Communications Jim Lakely speaks with Lord Christopher Monckton about what he learned while inside the walls of the Vatican.
akely talks to Monckton about what he learned inside the walls of the exclusive climate summit — including is encounter with United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon; the shockingly one-sided presentation of the science to Vatican officials; and the remarks of Peter Raver, an author for the UN’s IPCC who not only noticed Heartland’s presence in Rome, but expressed his dismay that our contingent might have any affect on the proceedings.
Monckton’s take: The United Nations climate officials are afraid to debate the science, afraid to present a balanced picture of the climate, and are afraid of The Heartland Institute.
