"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.

Monbiot goes state-side

A few months ago we reported an exclusive story here on DeSmogBlog about the troubles renowned UK columnist and author, George Monbiot, was having with finding a publisher to launch his book Heat in the United States. 

Monbiot told us at the time that U.S. editors had all said a version of the same thing: “Americans aren’t ready for it.”

Well it looks like South End Press, a publisher with a penchant for provocative literature, has decided that the American public is “ready.” Monbiot's book is now available in the US.

IPCC summary report culled and it's the deniers who claim censorship?

It's clear that the United States, China, Russia and Saudi Arabia flexed their collective United Nations muscle in negotiating the final version of the IPCC's summary for policymakers released in Brussels on Friday. But don't let the global warming deniers tell you that the report was somehow played up by the “alarmist” UN and “their socialist group of scientists bent on new world order.”

The exact opposite occurred.

US Publishers finding "Heat" Too Hot

Guardian columnist George Monbiot , with whom we shared a delicious dinner while he was in Vancouver signing books, says that U.S. publishing houses have so far spurned his bestselling (in the UK and Canada) Heat: How to Stop the Planet from Burning.

George says the U.S. editors have all said a version of the same thing: “Americans aren’t ready for it.”

Deniers "cock a hoop" over latest junk science

Monbiot's column in the Gaurdian today lays out nicely just how far the climate change deniers are willing to stretch their definition of “sound science.” Junk scientists and their cadre of misfits gleefully filled Monbiots inbox with messages like “your scam exposed” and “how do you feel now asshole.” Unfortunately, the only scam to expose is the information climate change deniers pawn off as science.
