“The flying Monck” (2011-12-06). Isn’t that just like Anthony Watts? Warm is cold, up is down, grimaces are grins. The aging and unfit Lord Monckton is so desperate for attention that he actually sky-dived over the Durban climate conference to ‘draw attention’ to climate change
denial skepticism. Anthony declares that Monckton is “grinning” on the way down, but you be the judge. Anthony’s readers are equally enthusiastic in their admiration of this demonstration of Monckton’s intellect.
Actually, this may be Monckton’s primary talent. Oblivious grinning while his arguments are shot down.
Note also that, just like in the climate debate, Monckton’s role is to clown for the camera while someone else pulls the strings.
