All Monckton, All the Time. The Ultimate Monckton Debunking Resource.

February 1, 2011

John Cook’s indispensable SkepticalScience has launched a one-stop debunking center for every scrap of nonsense, piffle, twaddle, bunkum and codswallop that his Serene Lordship has ever put out.

Monckton Myths is the swiss army vegematic for shredding, chopping, slicing, dicing, mincing, and crushing Monckton Misinformation, and it’s open for business.  Now when Aunt Teabag or Uncle Dittohead sends you that ridiculous pantload of paranoid poppycock, no need to search the web for answers, you’ll be able to put your hands on exactly the right reference in no time flat.

And you’ll have the famous skepticalscience guarantee of absolute, well researched, and peer reviewed credibility.

The Skeptical Science effort dovetails with (ahem) my own takedown of His Cheeziness from last spring, (see below) as well as John Abraham’s definitive , spot on blow-by-blow destruction of Monckton’s wildly popular St. Paul lecture.

His Lordship has fallen on hard times. Snake Oil sales are flat. His miracle AIDS cure doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, and it seems that he is perceived more and more as the clown that he always was.  When the ever-credulous anti-science wing of the Republican party (actually, that’s the only wing of the Republican party anymore..) that once invited you as a sole witness before congress, now won’t even give you a seat at the witness table, well, you know you have a credibility problem.

  1. rpauli Says:

    Monkton is a very successful publicity hound. He just happens to use the tactic of controversy in the subject of global warming. He no longer uses the issue of AIDS/HIV because the science is purely medical and well estabilished.

    I think we give him far too much respect. He is a performer who dresses the part of a tea-bagger ideologue. By giving him continued attention, we actually boost his public relations status.

    Just because we invite a dog to the dinner table and he is well behaved and mannerly — in conversation he is still just barking and howling at the moon. Henceforth, I shall be ignoring him.


  2. Rather than merely looking back on Christopher Walker’s fading climate science career for seemingly endless examples of unenthusiastic fact checking, let’s also pause to commemorate his eloquent sense of humor.
