The British climate change skeptic, Christopher Monckton, warned those attending an Australian conservative think tank seminar that bureaucrats will mastermind a "coup d'etat" in the aftermath of the COP15 climate change negotiations and establish a "world dictatorship". Monckton, who was once an adviser to the former Conservative Party Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, was speaking at a seminar by the mining and power generation industry funded think tank, the Institute of Public Affairs. "What I think will happen at Copenhagen is they won't agree on how much emissions for each country,'' he said. "'The bureaucrats will then sidle forward with their silky voices and their shiny shoes and their shiny pants, and they will say, 'Well, Prime Minister, you've come all this way, you need to go back with something. Why don't we all agree just to carry forward the institutional framework.' And thus, by stealth - by bureaucratic coup d'etat - a world dictatorship, long the aim of those who set up the UN's climate panel, will have come into being.''
