The political alarmism behind climate change denial

They are quick to accuse scientists of alarmism but I have always maintained that those who are most actively denying climate change are the real alarmists. It’s just that their motivations are political –  and their political beliefs alarmist (see Alarmist con).

This short video illustrates this for the case of Christopher Monckton –  an idol of the militant climate change denial movement.

Meanwhile, the remaining militant climate change denialists in New Zealand are eagerly awaiting the next local visit from Christopher Monckton. It starts (appropriately) on April 1st.

I understand some of the local media people are also vying for the opportunity to interview the guy. Last time his visit produced some rather entertaining videos. As you can see from the video above, he is good for a laugh.

  1. Thank you very much for sharing this video. Chris Monckton is touring Australia as of this week and I’m hoping my videos get enough of an audience (thus it’s great to see when others share them) to remind Australians who this character really is and how much credit his “scepticism” is really worth.

    I’d also like to see journalists try to hold him to all the battiness he demonstrates daily.

    There are three more videos already live and one more as of tomorrow in which I discuss his obsession with 1998.

    The others;
    The “True” Story of Lord Christopher Monckton (I use his methods of partial truths to, in this case, retell his own history).
    Christopher Monckton on DDT Use
    Christopher Monckton Says the Darndest Things

    Thanks again for the share! Fingers crossed that this visit gets the round of laughter it deserves!

  2. I’ve said this before I’ll say it again.
    I (heart) Chris.
    He’s the very best spokesperson for the denialist set. He embodies them perfectly. The man should be given his own TV show.
    The more he talks, the better I like it.
    They have only themselves to blame since they gave him his exposure and high profile.
    Wonderful. Just Wonderful.
