Over at the Monthly, Robert Manne writes about Monckton’s plan for a super-rich person to establish a Fox News for Australia. I thought we already had that in the Australian.

Monckton debunks Monckton

Peter Hadfield dissects Monckton’s response to Hadfield’s demolition of Monckton’s claims about climate science. Hadfield coins the term “Monckton maneuver” to describe Monckton’s tactic of changing his position when shown to be wrong and pretending that his position hasn’t changed.

Hamster Wheel interviews Monckton

Here it is — the interview that Monckton declared showed that the ABC supported fascism.

Monckton on TV in New Zealand

Monckton sure didn’t like it when the reporter brought John Abraham’s dissection. Monckton yet again claimed that he is about to sue Abraham.

Graham Readfearn writes about how Monckton is threatening the sue the ABC because he didn’t like Wendy Carlisle’s Background Briefing episode. This isn’t really that interesting, Monckton has also threatened to sue Al Gore, John Abraham, Scott Mandia, The Guardian, as well threatening to jail Rajendra Pachauri for fraud.

Moth at New Anthropocene corrects many of Monckton’s misrepresentations, so I’ll just cover what was in the transcript posted…

Here a screen shot from his talk. His comment on Garnaut’s words is “Heil Hitler”. Graeme Readfearn has the details. Update: Bolt throws Monckton under the proverbial bus.

Monckton uses a sock puppet

The Climate Science Rapid Response Team received a verbose query from Abu Ali Al-Hussain who oddly enough, sounded exactly like Christopher Monckton. I liked this bit from Monckton’s sock: The IPCC has been making long-term predictions of future climate states on the basis of modeling: yet its 2001 Third Assessment Report says that the climate…
