I’ve heard that in coming weeks Christopher Monckton will be packing his glitter bag with his finest robes and platforms to head down-under for yet another funded tour along the river reassurance. I hope to put the severity of the situation in its correct place.
Taking him serious has given him undue credibility. Why to this day has he no standing within the science literature and yet is considered to hold an opinion inflated beyond mere wishful thinking? Wonder about that before entering into a public debate on science (by all means, debate him on policy and social questions, but without valid scientific footing, he offers nothing to science communication).
I’ll have another one closure to his arrival.
