Open Letter to Christopher Monckton
Update (July 18, 2011): Monckton told he’s not member of House of Lords. Clerk of parliaments publishes letter on Lords’ site saying peer is not and has ‘never been a member of the House of Lords’.
Dear Mr. Monckton,
I fully support Dr. John Abraham’s presentation which I found to be a very thorough debunking of your many misrepresentations. Contrary to your own libelous accusation, I could find no point at which Dr. Abraham “told lies, knowingly and willfully misrepresenting what (you) had said.”
On the other hand, there are documented instances where you have lied and knowingly and willfully misrepresented issues of science and details of your own resume. In addition to viewing Dr. Abraham’s presentation, I invite you to peruse Dr. Barry Bickmore’s Lord Monckton’s Rap Sheet, Dr. Arthur Smith’s catalog of your errors in the July 2008 APS article, and Realclimate.org’s Monckton’s deliberate manipulation.
Currently, the British House of Lords is investigating your false claim to have been a member and your continued use of a logo that closely resembles their Parliamentary emblem. Please see Friends of Gin and Tonic’s The Empire Strikes back: Moncktongate – the End of a Jester?
I stand by my original blog post and I request that you immediately apologize to Dr. Abraham and to the University of St. Thomas for your shameful comments.
Scott A. Mandia
