From: Chris Johnston

Dear Victoria University of Wellington,

Please provide any records (including but not limited to internal/external: documents, emails, notes, minutes, text messages, or social media messages) mentioning scientists Dr Ronan Connolly and/or Michael Connolly and/or Christopher Monckton.

For context - so that you can correctly identify the individuals - some links relevant to their work are mentioned in the links below.
1) This is the presentation of their findings that Earth's atmosphere is in thermo-dynamic equilibrium (directly opposite to a key IPCC assumption), and therefore CO2 cannot have any significant effect on the temperature of Earth's atmosphere.

2) This is the Connolly's blog site where they publish their results:

3) This is where their empirical discovery is talked about by Christopher Monckton as a potential Nobel Prize winning paper (once published).

Yours faithfully,

Chris Johnston
