Since the esteemed, celebrity face to the “global warming hysteria,” Al Gore, was testifying before Congress, the Dems did not wish to risk seeing him humiliated by the UK’s Lord Christopher Monckton, a former science advisor to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Lord Monckton flew in especially to go head to head with former VP AlGore.
When the Dems learned that Lord Monckton was going to be at the hearing to refute AlGore, they balked.
What ever happened to debate? to free speech? Is that fear on the lefty side?
- “The Democrats have a lot to learn about the right of free speech under the US Constitution. Congress Henry Waxman’s (D-CA) refusal to expose Al Gore’s sci-fi comedy-horror testimony to proper, independent scrutiny by the House minority reeks of naked fear,” Monckton said from the airport Thursday evening.
“Waxman knows there has been no ‘global warming’ for at least a decade. Waxman knows there has been seven and a half years’ global cooling. Waxman knows that, in the words of the UK High Court judge who condemned Gore’s mawkish movie as materially, seriously, serially inaccurate, ‘the Armageddon scenario that he depicts is not based on any scientific view,’” Monckton explained.
