Christopher Monckton took his “pathological liar” comedy routine to Orem, Utah, last Tuesday night.
Peg McEntee wrote about it for the Salt Lake Tribune, “Monckton: Believe it or not.” McEntee saw through him, had the good sense to check the list of Members of the House of Lords, and noted that contrary to his claims, Monckton does not appear on the list.
I like him much better as Dame Edna.
- Straight news article from Wednesday’s Salt Lake Tribune
- In Virginia, Monckton calls for scientists to be jailed; appropriately, he spoke to the Bull Run Republican Women’s Club
- Hitting all the major science venues, Monckton addressed the Sauk County, Wisconsin, Republican Party at Wisconsin Dells; clearly demonstrating he’s got no clue about government in the U.S., he said the Environmental Protection Agency, our nation’s lead environmental protection regulatory agency, has no business regulating to protect the environment (Brilliant!)
Holy Mother of Pearl; Monckton’s logorrhea is back: “He criticized President Barack Obama’s administration by saying the country had elected a ‘monster.’ The stimulus package had been written by Communists to funnel money to extreme left wing, Marxist organizations, he said.” Could you make this kind of stuff up?
- Monckton appears to be on a tour of America’s religiously crazy venues — he spoke at Liberty University on March 10; this follows his tour of not-religiously-just crazy venues in Australia
- Monckton took to the estimable journal MensNewsDaily to criticize science journals for publishing research, classing up the editorial pages by calling the science journal editors “moaning ninnies”
- British reality-based journal The Economist warns that climate scientists need to get out in force to debunk the fantastic falsehoods of Monckton and his cronies
- Bill McKibben groks the issue
- Good grief! Here’s a video from the Provo Daily Herald (the daily newspaper that serves Orem, where resides Utah Valley University, the unfortunate venue of Monckton’s speech) in which Monckton repeats his fantastic lies about DDT and malaria (hint: Never in the written history of the humans have only 50,000 people died from malaria in a year; the lowest rate we’ve ever had is now, with under a million deaths a year — half what it was when DDT spraying of cotton was banned).
- Daily Herald story on the speech, “Briton espouses alternative view on global warming”
- Apologies to Barry Humphries, who runs a class act, as opposed to Monckton
Is Monckton still in the country? If he’s going to be in Texas, I’d love to debate him. Is he still chicken?
