Watts Up With That? and Lord Monckton – Part 2

Here is Part 1 with all the videos.

So Load Monckton has responded to all those videos in the first post and Potholer54 (Peter Hadfield) has replied back.

OK, first watch the videos in the part 1 link (or at least some of them). I’ll wait…

So, if you watched those videos you will see that those videos have little to do with climate change directly. What they really deal with is Lord Monckton misquoting science papers, books, etc. that talk about climate change in a way that ‘Climategate’ followers could only dream about.

At this point, no matter what side of the issue you fall on, the key issue here is Lord Monckton seems to be misleading people and both sides of the climate change debate should care about that, if both sides really want to get to the truth of the matter.

So, read the second link I’ll wait again…

OK good. So Lord Monckton replies back with calling Peter Hadfield names, etc. No real comment on the points made by him. Now to anyone else, this should raise a red flag. Anthony Watts allows this name calling to continue in the comments thread.

Now this thread has been going on for about a month now. In time Peter responds and after a lot of back and forth Watts finally allows Peter to rebut Monckton’s post as part of the post. I find the different comments of Mr Watts interesting…

For example:

we do look forward to your debunking Al Gore in a video (I’ve yet to see one dedicated to him let alone the five you dedicate to Monckton in references above, feel free to drop a link here), since you claim not to be biased in any way.

– Anthony

um, who cares if it’s one video or 5 or none for that matter. That has nothing to do with Monckton misquoting his sources. Look at the videos and see what you think.

Anyway, it goes on like that for awhile. I will give Mr. Watts some credit for (after Potholer explaining what an ‘equal response’ is) posting Potholer’s reply in the body of the main post. It is clear that there is some one sided snipping of posts however. WUWT is clearly not a free forum like Potholer’s channel is.

Clearly, the readers of WUWT have their brains wired differently than I. This is just about quoting your sources correctly and if you are able to step back and look at things objectively it is clear that Monckton is being misleading.
