A group of top climate scientists have provided Congress with an exhaustive and devastating review (attached) of the professional denier Christopher Monckton’s May 6, 2010 testimony before the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming.
In his usual style, the Third Viscount Monckton of Brenchley parlayed his notoriety into an invitation to testify before the committee and then assured its Members that the world’s best climate scientists are completely mistaken about climate science - an assurance that he feels free to give regardless that his own thin academic credentials relate exclusively to journalism and classics.
In response, five actual scientists (led by the indefatiguable Dr. John Abraham of the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota) contacted more than 20 world-class climate experts and requested critiques of nine specific assertions that Monckton had made before Congress. For Monckton watchers, the result is predictable. And if Monckton had a capacity for embarrassment, he would be humiliated by the content.
