UK's Lord Christopher Monckton, a former science advisor to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, claimed House Democrats have refused to allow him to appear alongside former Vice President Al Gore at a high profile global warming hearing on Friday April 24, 2009 at 10am in Washington. Monckton told Climate Depot that the Democrats rescinded his scheduled joint appearance at the House Energy and Commerce hearing on Friday. Monckton said he was informed that he would not be allowed to testify alongside Gore when his plane landed from England Thursday afternoon.The "Goracle" is a Rock Star with the Liberals. Yet an examination of Mr. Gore's movie,
“The House Democrats don't want Gore humiliated, so they slammed the door of the Capitol in my face,” Monckton told Climate Depot in an exclusive interview. “They are cowards.” [Emphasis Mine]
An Inconvenient Truth, does not pass muster as a truthful documentary. Lord Christopher Monckton has successfully challenged the movie's "facts". Lord Monckton has not just challenged the movie verbally, Lord Mockton has won his challenge in the British Courts." Consequently, Lord Mockton believes he knows why his appearance to debate Mr. Gore was cancelled.
“The Democrats have a lot to learn about the right of free speech under the US Constitution. Congress Henry Waxman's (D-CA) refusal to expose Al Gore's sci-fi comedy-horror testimony to proper, independent scrutiny by the House minority reeks of naked fear,” Monckton said from the airport Thursday evening.Rep. Waxman has previously made clear he is strongly in favor of Carbon Cap and Trade. Rep. Waxamn chooses to ignore the facts, or any debate which would show the "Goracle's" position is not supported by Scientific Facts. 35 Inconvenient Truths: The errors in Al Gore’s movie explains the 35 errors contained in the Al Gore Movie
“Waxman knows there has been no 'global warming' for at least a decade. Waxman knows there has been seven and a half years' global cooling. Waxman knows that, in the words of the UK High Court judge who condemned Gore's mawkish movie as materially, seriously, serially inaccurate, 'the Armageddon scenario that he depicts is not based on any scientific view,'” Monckton explained. Monckton has previously testified before the House Committee in March. [Emphasis Mine}
An Inconvenient Truth. Nine of these errors were found to be significant enough for the British Court System to uphold Lord Monckton's position in Court.
A spokesman for Al Gore has issued a questionable response to the news that in October 2007 the High Court in London had identified nine “errors” in his movie An Inconvenient Truth. The judge had stated that, if the UK Government had not agreed to send to every secondary school in England a corrected guidance note making clear the mainstream scientific position on these nine “errors”, he would have made a finding that the Government’s distribution of the film and the first draft of the guidance note earlier in 2007 to all English secondary schools had been an unlawful contravention of an Act of Parliament prohibiting the political indoctrination of children. [Emphasis Mine]The question all of us need to ask Rep. Waxman is, "What is your personal agenda?". And, "Why not debate the Science Climate Change?" These are also good questions for each of us to ask our Elected Officials at all levels.
