So the latest headline on Drudge is this:
Which sounds serious, but if you read the linked article in the Daily Mail, all that has happened is that Monckton complained to Ofcom that the BBC Climate Wars documentary was unfair to him.
How was it unfair? It seems they didn’t give enough screen time:
‘The BBC very gravely misrepresented me and several others, as well as the science behind our argument. It is a breach of its code of conduct.
‘I was interviewed for 90 minutes and all my views were backed up by sound scientific data, but this was all omitted. They made it sound as if these were just my personal views, as if I was some potty peer. It was caddish of them.’
But the Daily Mail article doesn’t include any of Monckton’s scientific data either, so I guess it is also gravely misrepresenting him and making him look like a potty peer. In fact, the Climate Wars documentary did address the skeptics’ scientific arguments, just not Monckton’s specifically. Because the show wasn’t just about Monckton.
If only Monckton was as good at science as he is at getting himself in the news.
