A BRITISH climate sceptic says he has evidence climate change isn't a problem and the Australian Government's emissions trading scheme (ETS) is unnecessary.
Lord Christopher Monckton says he has come to Australia to prove Prime Minister Kevin Rudd wrong.
The former adviser to British prime minister Margaret Thatcher says Mr Rudd carried out "a 45-minute sustained personal attack" on him last November claiming he had no evidence on the effects of climate change.
"I'm going to say to the people of Australia, when your Prime Minister said I don't have any evidence, here I am, here is my evidence, here is where I got it from," Lord Monckton said today.
The climate change sceptic will carry out an extensive 13-day lecture tour of Australia at an estimated cost of $100,000.
The cost is being covered by two semi-retired Queensland engineers, John Smeed and Case Smit.
Lord Monckton claims climate change isn't a problem for the planet and carbon dioxide emissions don't contribute significantly to global warming.
He claims world temperatures will rise by just half a degree (Celsius) by the end of the decade, compared with UN scientists' prediction of a 3.5 degree rise.
He said millions of dollars were being made by "climate change profiteers".
"The ETS - which I understand your Government is proposing to introduce - is unnecessary," he said.
"It will simply be the largest tax increase in the history of Australia.
"All that will happen is that bankers and politicians will become even richer than they are."
Lord Monckton says his evidence against climate change includes tropical cyclones in Australian are at a 40-year low, Greenland's ice cover is increasing 5cm a year and polar bear numbers are on the rise, although there is some dispute amongst scientists about these findings.
