Case Smit

From Global Energy Monitor

Case Smit, a hygienist, is one of the co-founders of the Galileo Movement, which launched its website in May, 2011. The group's patron is conservative Australian broadcaster Alan Jones.[1]

In January 2010 Smit was one of the organisers of a tour to Australia of climate sceptic Christopher Monckton and revealed that part of the $100,000 costs of the tour would be met by mining billionaire, Gina Rinehart. Smit, one of the tour organisers, told Noosa News that they wrote to Rinehart when the organiser of the Perth leg of the tour could no longer help out. Smit said that "She said, ‘I’ll get my office to organise it’. So Gina Rinehart’s office is the contact for the Perth event."[2]
