Recursive fraudery: Monckton goes mad in Australia - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden Feb 28, 2013

Christopher, Viscount Monckton of Brenchley’s tour of Australia must be going very badly, because the “high priest of climate scepticism” is indulging in another of his increasingly desperate displays of attention seeking behaviour. After giving a poorly attended lecture in Hobart last week, Monckton took umbrage at an article in the Sunday Tasmanian (on the [...] … Read More

Prat Watch #4: Foundation and Empire - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden Mar 20, 2012

While the noble Lord, Viscount Christopher “I’m no potty peer” Monckton tours the USA and Canada at the behest of his friends at the Heartland-lite Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (aka the Billionaire Liberation Front), his Australian admirers, led by former Climate Sceptic Party candidate Chris Dawson, have announced the creation of… wait for it… [...] … Read More

John Abraham: How to give good radio - Hot Topic

Bryan Walker May 28, 2011

It’s hard to know listening to this recent US radio interview with John Abraham whether to be more admiring of his incisive responses or more astonished at the regularity with which tired old denier claims are put forward by the interviewers. The interview perhaps highlights the extraordinary divergences of American society – home to impressively [...] … Read More

Monckton: the final slapdown - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden Sep 22, 2010

Britain’s most bumptious climate crank, Christopher, Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, deputy leader of the UK Independence Party (a party so fringe it probably has a surrey underneath) and inventor of a cure for AIDS, multiple sclerosis, influenza, and herpes simplex VI, gave evidence to a US Congressional committee last May at the invitation of the [...] … Read More

Monckton is a fraud - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden Aug 03, 2010

Christopher, Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, pompous peer of a parish in Kent, not content with threatening legal action against US scientist John Abraham (who had the temerity to point out the huge number of errors and misrepresentations in a talk he gave: see Support John Abraham, now 1050+ comments), has now threatened action for libel [...] … Read More

Suzan does a mini- Monckton - Open Parachute

Ken Perrott Jul 30, 2010

The journalist Suzan Mazur seems to be taking a leaf out of Christopher Monckton’s silly book. A while back I reviewed Suzan Mazur’s book The Altenberg 16: An Exposé of the Evolution Industry (see Self-exposure – a journalist out of depth). … Continue reading → … Read More

Support John Abraham against Monckton’s bullying - Open Parachute

Ken Perrott Jul 15, 2010

Six weeks ago I posted a slideshow of a talk by John Abrahm’s (see Don’t trust Monckton!). It was a calm and objective investigation into the claims made by Christopher Monckton in one of his lectures. If you didn’t watch it I highly recommend you do so. Trouble is, Monckton is not used to such [...] … Read More

Monckton: still digging for failure - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden Jul 14, 2010

Stoat alerts me to Monckton’s response (pdf — be warned, it’s an industrial grade whinge) to the epic debunking of one of his 2009 US tour talks by John Abraham . This prompts Eli the lovable lagomorph to crowd-source answers to the 500 questions the potty peer poses for Abraham by way of “reply”. I [...] … Read More
