Lord Monckton interviews Greenpeace activist on global warming

This is a classic. From the streets of Copenhagen. Here's a sample:
MONCKTON: In the last 10 years, how much has the global temperature gone up?
ACTIVIST: 0.7 degrees.
MONCKTON: In the last 10 years?
ACTIVIST: No, not in the last 10 years but in 20…
MONCKTON: But I’m asking you about the last 10 years.
ACTIVIST: Uhm, well, I will just have to guess. I would say, uhm… 0.1 degree…
MONCKTON: Right. It has actually gone down very slightly. About 0.05 degrees. It has gone down for 10 years. In fact it hasn’t increased statistically significantly, for the last 15 years, out of the 20 years you were talking about.
ACTIVIST: May I ask you a question? How do you know that?
MONCKTON: Because I take the data from the satellite and I then plot what is called the least squared linear regression trend…

"I have read that [draft Copenhagen] treaty. And what it says is this: that a world government is going to be created... " (Monckton)

"There are so many obvious errors here it is hard to fathom how even Monckton believes it. Specifically:

1. There is no draft Treaty of Copenhagen..." - The Standard

One of many such examples on this page

Here's Lord Monckton telling a Jewish climate change activist he's "not going to shake the hand of Hitler Youth." He also suggested, a while ago, that people with AIDS should be quarantined. And I remember with hilarity when he tried to sue the Tory government over Maastricht. He's also an anti-reformist - because he's a hereditary peer, most likely - and a dying breed of old-guard Conservatives that, frankly, the new guard don't want.

Lord Monckton also appeared on the Alex Jones radio show. If you don't know, Alex Jones is the biggest proponent of the 9/11 conspiracy theory, and thinks that Hunter S. Thompson was murdered because he was onto the government's involvement in 9/11 and a Beltway paedophile ring.

It's fucking laughable when we decide we can showboat this kind of dicussion in the street, or that celebrity endorsements mean that something's had weight added to it. If that were true, Charlie Sheen would be testifying to Congress right now. I love the bit at the end: "Don't even listen to me, but if you do your own research you'll find out it's a non-issue."

The man's a joke to all good Conservatives.

That's a really good idea . . . check the facts yourself before ridiculing him! Otherwise you're just an ignorant commenter believing propaganda presented by groups with their own agenda, maybe not inthe interests of most people.
