"Viscount" Monckton at Ease Lying for Money

Christopher Walter, Third Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, who has already admitted that he finds lying for profit a perfectly acceptable pastime, appears to have been caught out adding phoney details to his own Wikipedia biography.

This link shows an exchange between Monckton and Guardian columnist George Monbiot, who demands to know why Monckton's entry on Wiki was claiming a £50,000 libel victory from a Monbiot column (no such victory having ever been posted). At the point that Monbiot informs Monckton that the offending information arrived from Monckton's own email address, the usually chatty peer goes suddenly silent.

Long may it last.

Schulte's Analysis: Not Published; Not Going to Be

The celebrated research by Dr. Klaus-Martin Schulte, claiming that a legitimate debate still continues over the science behind climate change, is “a bit patchy and nothing new,” according to Sonja Boehmer-Christiansen , editor of the Energy and Environment journal to which Schulte had submitted the work for publication.

It is “not what was of interest to me” and will not be published, Boehmer Christiansen said (in email correspondence reproduced in full at the end of this post).
