Monckton’s Country Channel meltdown By Peter Griffin • 09/08/2011 climate change Lord Monckton 0 Responses to “Monckton’s Country Channel meltdown” This is the sort of article that deserves a followup from the media. Monkton makes claims that can be proved one way or the other. If the media is so focused on “balance” they should be checking out his claims and presenting their findings. monckton always leaves an interview with at least one claim unchallenged (and one that would require verification). Such is the claim that John Abraham lied to scientists about what Monckton said. No, he didn’t. He just sent Monckton’s presentation to various scientists to peer review. Which they did.
