A coalition of leading climate scientists yesterday filed a 48-page document to the US Congress refuting an attack on climate science made earlier this year by the Ukip deputy leader, Lord Christopher Monckton.'Chemical nonsense': Leading scientists refute Lord Monckton's attack on climate science
The detailed rebuttal addresses nine key scientific claims made by Monckton, a prominent climate sceptic, to a house select committee hearing in May. It includes the responses of 21 climate scientists who variously conclude that Monckton's assertions are "very misleading", "profoundly wrong", "simply false", "chemical nonsense", and "cannot be supported by climate physics".
Monckton, a former journalist and policy adviser to Margaret Thatcher, who has been the deputy leader of the UK Independence party (Ukip) since June, was invited by the Republican party to give evidence to the house select committee on energy independence and global warming.
Ah, the Republicans invite a journalist to teach them about climate change. Monckton is also a well know climate science 'skeptic'.
Monckton has been among the most persistent and vociferous of critics, labelling climate science as the "largest fraud of all time" and arguing that it is being used to establish a "new world government".How rational is it to believe that 97% of all climatologist studying climate change and virtually every government on the globe are colluding to take over the world by hoaxing the poor gullible planetary inhabitants with bogus climate change?
Here are the top 10 denialists
I would find them amusing if they had no influence. How tinfoil hat types like this can be seen as credible by anybody is scary. Oh, and guess who'se financing them?
