Rep. Barton has praised him and had him testify
First, TVMOB was caught on tape calling activists who crashed a polluter-funded anti-science global warming event in Copenhagen “Hitler Youth.” You know you’ve left the mainstream when even “One of the most notorious climate change denial groups is Americans for Prosperity (AFP),” a pro-tobacco group, anti-climate, anti-clean-energy group “which is largely funded by fossil-fuel industry interests,” immediately runs away from your language. Phil Kerpen, the policy director of Americans for Prosperity, distanced himself from Monckton’s comments as fast as he could — writing on Twitter, “DO NOT approve.”
But TVMOB has now posted on the Science & Public Policy Institute website where he is Chief Policy Adviser a piece filled with unbridled hate speech:
He calls America’s top climatologist, NASA’s James Hansen, “a fully-paid-up member of the new regime,” who has “one of the unfailing hallmarks of Nazism and Fascism everywhere.” And he says far worse things about the younger climate science activists in Copenhagen fighting to preserve a livable climate for billions around the planet — their generation and subsequent ones.
I can’t bring myself to quote any more of this shockingly inappropriate piece than the title:
It’s one thing to blurt out something in temperate in the heat of the moment, or in a private e-mail for that matter, but to proudly embrace and expand upon extremist hate speech after taking time to think and reconsider one’s words, well, that is unconscionable.
Monckton should be condemned widely for this, including by the anti-science websites who regularly reprint his work, like WattsUpWithThat.
He should be condemned by the Congressional conservatives who embraced him and have had him testify, like Barton who said (see Rep. Barton: Climate change is ‘natural,’ humans should just ‘get shade’ “” invites ‘expert’ TVMOB (!) to testify):
“I especially want to thank Lord Monckton for testifying. He is generally acknowledged as one of the most knowledgeable, if not the most knowledgeable, expert from a skeptical point of view on this issue of climate change. I’m very glad he could stay over this week in the United States and testify at the hearing.”
