Monckton gives Turnbull a serve

Found this over at Andrew Bolt’s but it is soooo worthy of repeating.


Challenge to an absolute banker

The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, following what the great Alan Jones has described as his “6-0, 6-0, 6-0 victory” over the director of the Australia Institute in a debate about the climate at the National Press Club in Canberra early this week, has today issued the following challenge to Malcolm Turnbull, the former leader of the Liberal/National Coalition, whom his party recycled last year for his naïve belief that “global warming” is some sort of “global crisis” –

Whereas one Malcolm Turnbull, Member of Parliament for Goldman Sachs, self-appointed leader of the Absolute Bankers’ Get-Rich-Quick, Gimme-the-Money, Subsidy-Junkies’, Profiteers’-of-Doom and Rent-Seekers’ Vested-Interest Coalition Against Hard-Working Taxpayers, has this day demonstrated wilful but indubitably profitable ignorance of elementary science by declaring that since all relevant matters of climatology are settled no one should pay any heed to a mere Peer of the Realm who dares to question the imagined (and imaginary) scientific “consensus” to the effect that unless the economies of the West are laid waste and destroyed we are all doomed;

And forasmuch as it is easy to identify the said Turnbull’s aircraft when it arrives at Canberra Airport because when the engines are turned off the whining carries on;

Now therefore I, The Right Honourable Christopher Walter, by the Grace of God and Letters Patent under the Hand and Seal of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second (whom God preserve) Third Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, do by these presents challenge the said Absolute Banker to a Debate on live television, during which each party shall have the opportunity to state his case and to examine the other’s case, with a view to informing Hard-Working Taxpayers and allowing them to decide for themselves whether the truth is being told by me or by the said Member for Goldman Sachs, upon whom I call to take up this challenge, if he dares.

Given under my sign manual this twenty-second day of July in the Year of our Lord Two Thousand and Eleven,


Fat chance Lord Monckton will get that debate, but still…


The battle against Lord Monckton

Our ABC is certainly helping Aunty Julia’s carbon crusade along…

THE adventures of climate sceptic Christopher Monckton continue apace: already banned from speaking at functions in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth, he was hung up on by an ABC radio presenter in Sydney and stripped of his title by reporters at the Fairfax press.

In a day of media drama yesterday, Lord Monckton, whose views are unpalatable to many, agreed to be interviewed by ABC Sydney breakfast host Adam Spencer, only to find himself holding the phone after Spencer hung up on him.

Loving that debate, ABC!

At least our National Press Club are behaving like adults.


PS Monckton’s speech (large pdf) in case you missed it.

Monckton to speak at National Press Club

Hear, hear! Finally some of that debate we’ve been promised* but have yet to receive in an adequate forum.

CLIMATE sceptic Christopher Monckton has been offered a prime speaking slot at the National Press Club in Canberra on July 19, despite a spate of cancelled public appearances.

Lord Monckton – who recently accused Julia Gillard’s climate adviser Ross Garnaut of “fascist” views – is set to debate the Australia’s Institute’s executive director, economist Richard Denniss.

The Australian Online understands Lord Monckton was offered the spot in response to a request from his tour organisers.

The engagement is yet to be finalised as he has a speaking engagement in Melbourne which he is trying to shift.

It’s understood the press club board approved the offer to Lord Monckton on Friday, while Dr Denniss has accepted the invitation.

National Press Club senior vice president Steve Lewis said the role of the club was to “provide a civilised forum for an important debate”.

This is, as you are probably well aware of by now, the antithesis to Prime Minister Gillard’s concept of a debate; a PM who will announce details of her carbon (dioxide!) tax just after Parliament has finished sitting and almost five weeks before it sits again.

She is an absolute disgrace; to herself, to the Australian public and indeed to the Office she holds.

A link to Monckton’s recent presentation can be found in the post below.

Monckton’s speech in Australia (that they tried to shut down)

Via Jo Nova, here’s the speech in full. It’s a 70 page pdf however.

Did anyone get video of it?

Those 50 “academics”…

You know, the one’s who signed up hoping to shut down Christopher Monckton’s right to express his opinion (how very “academic”).

The good professor Bunyip has had a look into the credentials of many of them and…

Political science, music, Finnish cinema???

Related: the Brisbane Broncos lose a fan.

Meanwhile, the ABC’s PM gets an academic to dispassionately talk about campaign techniques. Leftist activist group GetUp is noted as a counterbalance to Big Business. One problem: said dispassionate academic is on the board of GetUp.

Pity the ABC failed to declare this.

BTW, the latest scare? Freak the urban elite out how?

Their wine is in danger.

Of course, their wine is quite safe. I do have to give the warmenist side some kudos, however.

For creativity.

I suppose coffee’s next, then tofu, then what? Massage oils?


Interpretive Inuit climate dance???


Further pursuits of these “academics” include…

  • The link between genetically modified crops and file sharing
  • Ethnographic study of women’s magazine editors
  • Japanese literature
  • Refugee advocates
  • Blogosphere graphers comparing us to our French counterparts
  • Mobile phone experts
  • Cider experts
  • Reefers
  • Sunflowers and sand dunes
  • Real estate

Monckton’s speech (yes, that one): What is the Green movement and what are its goals?

When you watch it in it’s entirety, it really does become apparent that the hoohar over the Monckton-vs-Garnaut Nazi claim is – can I be polite here? – utter bullshit.

At 50:35 you hear the “EEK! moment“, but even if you “can’t” watch the lot, at least scroll back to 49:40.

It’s under an hour you won’t regret.

On this wordpress platform, I’m sorry I cant put the video up here (believe me, I tried).

If anyone can convert that livestream platform in to something usable, that’d be great.


Monckton is a bad guy?

And Abbott, too, for wanting to associate with him?

THE federal government has used question time to stage an attack on Opposition Leader Tony Abbott’s links to prominent climate change denier Christopher Monckton.

THE federal government has used question time to stage an attack on Opposition Leader Tony Abbott’s links to prominent climate change denier Christopher Monckton.

Well, Julia, how about your links to global warming proponents who (jokingly?) fantasise about blowing the opposition up?

Indeed no faux-outrage on that from the Left but instead genuine laughter.



NineMSM merely reports that some are being called as such. Andy Semple at Menzies House has a quick squiz as to why.

Can’t wait to hear Monckton’s speech in full.



Another knee-jerk reaction from Andrew Bolt:

I’ll post my reply to Andrew here as getting comments through on his blog is like shooting blind. It’s doubtful he’ll read it here, but there’s probably more chance than if I wasted my time there only to later see my comment disappear down the memory hole.

Andrew, as with the live cattle trade video, you’ve overreacted. And I have to admit, with that video, I did, too, before, like you, sleeping on it, and then quietly backing away when realising the reality that banning the whole trade to Indonesia was taking precious food away from poor people, hurting hard-working Australian families, and crippling an entire industry.

Yes, it is a glaring image seeing Monckton standing there pointing to a swastika and juxtaposing that to Australian climate czar, Ross Garnaut.

But you yourself have spoken and written about eco-fascism! You have played the Hitler Youth song, “Tomorrow Belongs To Me”, you have made the link, countless times, between what we saw in Nazi Germany and what we are seeing now with the climate alarmists.

Of course the Left will bag Monckton, but they were always going to bag him anyway when he comes here soon. You know that. They know that. Monckton certainly knows that.

Monckton, as always, called a spade a spade. He made the same link you have many times before albeit in far more dramatic circumstances.

Hey, I know you’re made to opine on a lot of things pretty much non-stop. On your radio show last week, you noted yourself that you’re doing so much opining these days that it’s difficult to take a step back.

Do try.

Sleep on this tonight, check those comments in support on Monckton, and perhaps (hopefully) reappraise.


That comment was posted at 1:57 bingbing-time/2:57 Bolt-time on his blog. Who knows if it’ll get through, though. :roll:


Regardless, Monckton unreservedly apologises. You never hear the leftists do that!


Eco-hypocrites. Where was the Leftist rage before?

Wakeup2thelies gives us a timely reminder.

Partick Moore vs so-called environmentalists

A real environmentalist takes on the charlatans. India, rightly so, thumbs its nose at them, too.

Also via the Boltmeister, Chris Monckton does the math on Julia’s quest to save the planet.

Relentless and insidious: call for “global climate court”

Enough already! Who else refuses to succumb to the whims of the unelected elite?

Reader, JM Heinrichs, alerted this blog to a series of posts written by Lord Monckton, currently in attendance at the global climate summit being held at the presently-cold resort town, Cancun, Mexico.

Of particular note is the third missive which details a stupefying array of new global bureaucracies, set up by undemocratically elected global communists, intended to be put in place to control pretty much every aspect of our lives in the name of saving the planet.

Well, now Bolivia’s (like North Korea, rich on resources but still a poor nation) tin pot president, Evo lack ofMorales of the Movement Towards Socialism party, called for a “global climate court”… oh, and to resurrect the corpse that is the Kyoto Protocol.

Oh well, “Sovereign Nation” is hard to spell, anyway.

PS Like Morales dreamed that one up himself!


A not-really-that-weak deal has been reached – a $100 billion global swindle – that, you guessed it, Morales reckons isn’t enough.

Man, where’s that bus load of suicide bombers when you really need them?

Graham Readfearn quits

The Courier Mail’s warming alarmist blogger has quit. Couldn’t handle getting PWND in comments day after day after day? Deep down does he know the house of cards that is his green religion is falling down? One can only speculate.

Naturally, I think his doom-mongering views on so-called man-made climate change are absolute rubbish. But on a personal level, I wish him luck.


Readfearn vs Monckton in Brisbane. It’s audio with some nice piccies.

Monckton in Australia vs Rudd in Never Never Land

Via reader, Ken, at Andrew Bolt’s mega-blog:

When I arrived at the hotel about 5.20 there were about 200-300 people outside the hotel. Staff had locked the doors. I was able to get in because my ticket had been left with the concierge.

Another 100 or so people were lined up to buy tickets outside the Grand Ballroom. Inside, the room was full (800 seat capacity) and another 200-300 were standing at the back.

AB also links to a great video interview with Lord Monckton by Sydney’s lefty paper (Tim Blair’s enemy), the Sydney Morning Herald, and it’s pretty obvious where the objective journo stands, LOL!

Now, this post is more of a round-up for any non-Australian readers, but Monckton has even challenged the PM, the Honorable Kevin Rudd, and noted that an Emissions Trading Scheme is bad news for Aussie jobs. And yes, it would be in the coal capital of Australia and the world, Newcastle. But, of course, coal produces most of our electricity and prices are, at least in Australia, set to double, then treble soon if Rudd gets his way with his mad climate taxes scheme (of which he hasn’t so far). Follow the logic, and an Australian ETS could have huge implications not just for Australia but for the rest of the world, too.

Meanwhile, Monckton will be up in Noosa on Saturday – an area reeling from the devastating effects of climate change -  and their local rag ran a Q&A with him.

What we now face, not only in Australia but worldwide, is a conspiracy of the governors against the governed, of the rich against the poor, of the powerful against the powerless, of the strong against the weak, of the big guy against the little guy.
I decline to join that conspiracy, which is using the climate as a Trojan Horse to breach the citadel of our constitutional rights and freedoms, and even to introduce an unelected world government.

Hear, hear! And Kevin? Never, never…
