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.

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…

  • Ethnographic study of women’s magazine editors
  • Japanese literature
  • Refugee advocates
  • Blogosphere graphers comparing us to our French counterparts

  • 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.

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.
