Monckton and those damn miners

Graham Readfern’s getting a bit jittery about skeptics getting their point of view across. His article in The Age bears a picture of a rather sinister-looking Lord Monckton.

As I watched the video last Tuesday evening, news was just emerging  that  mining billionaire and Asia’s richest woman, Gina Rinehart, had  bought $192  million worth of shares in Fairfax (the publisher of  Brisbane Times, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and many regional   newspapers and city-based radio stations) to take  her share in the  company to about 12.6 per cent.

To me, these two events were intrinsically linked, and not just because Mr  Manners is a personal friend of Ms Rinehart’s.

And skeptics are the conspiracy theorists?

Once again, so? Do warmists not discuss ideas? Do some of these warmists not also have lots of money (though not quite as much)?

Monckton supporter and News Limited columnist  Andrew Bolt, (an “expert” along with Lord Monckton on the activist climate  sceptic group the Galileo  Movement) blew his dog whistle, sending a handful of his regular  lap dog commentators over to my blog to post insults, which I duly deleted.

Is he suggesting that Bolt instructed his readers to write vitriolic comments? If he’s trying to smear skeptics by highlighting some of the idiots, then perhaps he should look at the stuff warmists come up with. There are nuts on both sides, Graham.

Campaign group Get Up! was more than a little spooked at the  video. They republished it, adding some subtitles, and posted it on their YouTube  channel.

Spooked is right. What is wrong with someone establishing a new channel putting forth a different view? Afterall, we need something to counteract the bias of the ABC (which we still have to pay for).

In his response, Lord Monckton claimed he had previously revealed a  United  Nations plot to install a world government (he didn’t) and that  he had “parachuted” in to a UN climate conference (he didn’t do that  either, according  to a contact who was there and tells me he dropped in  to a beach three  kilometres away).

While Readfern has his fingers in his ears, the UN continues to discuss proposals that resemble such an entity (here, here and here). Also, when I see Readfern perform a similar stunt to express his views, then I’ll pay this dismissal of Monckton’s effort some respect.

Once Lord Monckton returns from the gates of hell to retrieve his Nobe (sic) Peace Prize,  perhaps Ms Rinehart, Ron Manners and the rest of  Monckton’s supporters  could then go off in search of some credibility, which is  irredeemably  tarnished by their association with him.

Only in the eyes of alarmists such as yourself, Graham. And this is the position the global warming movement is now in. When the science is letting you down, resort to smear tactics.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

    Why is it Warmers feel compelled to delete? Whenever they find something they do not like or could be damning they delete it…whether it is comments, emails, data….LOL

    I was struck with how proud he is of deleting comments. ” Duly Deleted”. Well how powerful you must feel. My thinking is that there were no such posts and he is conjuring up a straw man. It’s like the entire warming game. A real man would allow the comments so he could prove his point with their words. If they are ” deleted ” we have no way of knowing if they were truly filled with vitrol…or if they were posted at all……………

    Although this blog was created recently and was an attempt by a Warmer to smear Anthony Watts. The point he made in his first entry was he would allow comments and would not delete like Watts does …notice the projection. Well I posted ( in the comments) how he was wrong on the timeline in the blog vs SNL skit and now he does not allow comments….and has not posted anything new on his blog since.

    What to make of this? Take a look.
