California GOP assemblywoman Shannon Grove has invited discredited anti-science disinformer and hate-speech promoter Lord Monckton to address the state legislature.
Amazingly, Grove is so proud of this move she is advertising it on her website below the string of wind turbines that form the backbone of California’s leadership response to global warming, a response that hard-core deniers like Monckton are working overtime to kill.
The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley (TVMOB) is not merely the most discredited purveyor of long debunked anti-science disinformation — see MN professor eviscerates Monckton in must-see video: “The number of errors Chris Monckton makes is so enormous it would take a thesis to go through every single one of them.”
And Monckton is not merely a shameless purveyor of hate speech — see Lord Monckton repeats and expands on his charge that those who embrace climate science are “Hitler youth” and fascists.
He actually lives in an alternative universe where he is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and a member of Parliament — who has cured HIV. None of those things is true (see here). Rather than being given a platform by the California GOP, he should be widely condemned for his extremist hate speech and anti-science disinformation:
