Has Monckton finally arrived at his Waterloo?

A group of scientists has put together a detailed study of Mr. Lord Monckton’s Congressional testimony, unlike LM’s many lectures and blogs, LM was under oath while giving false testimony to the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming.

Hopefully, we can finally see the court trial that the good Lord keeps threatening.

With him as defendant !

Monckton Testimony at US Congress: Ignorance or Perjury?

Response to the Written Testimony of Christopher Monckton In Connection With the May 6, 2010 Hearing Before the Select Committee On Energy Independence and Global Warming
On May 6, 2010, Mr. Christopher Monckton testified by invitation to the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming of the U.S. House of Representatives. Mr. Monckton, who is not a scientist, gave testimony that was in stark contrast to that of the scientists who were present at the hearing as well as the many official statements produced by the world’s premiere scientific organizations, about the growing dangers of climate change.
Here, a number of top climate scientists have thoroughly refuted all of Mr. Monckton’s major assertions, clearly demonstrating a number of obvious and elementary errors. We encourage the U.S. Congress to give careful consideration to the implications this document has for the care that should be exercised in choosing expert witnesses to inform the legislative process.

Table of contents
3…....... Organization of Material
4…....... Assertion 1 and Responses
High CO2 levels co-existed with equatorial glaciers, disproving the efficacy of warming from high CO2 levels.
5…....... Assertion 2 and Responses
Corals came into being during eras of high CO2, therefore high CO2 is not damaging.
7…....... Assertion 3 and Responses
A high CO2 concentration is beneficial.
9…....... Assertion 4 and Responses
If increasing ocean acidification is occurring, it is not due to increasing CO2.
12…..... Assertion 5 and Responses
Global temperatures have varied due to natural causes in the past and there is nothing unusual about the recent rise.
14…..... Assertion 6 and Responses
The Earth is now cooling and the previous decades of warming have stopped.
16…..... Assertion 7 and Responses
Recent decades of warming were due to global brightening, not CO2.
19…..... Assertion 8 and Responses
The temperature response to radiative forcing (i.e. climate sensitivity) is very small and was over-estimated by a factor of 4 by the IPCC.
22…..... Assertion 9 and Responses
Climate change is a non-problem. Even if the higher estimates of climate sensitivity were correct, there is no hurry to take any action.
