Today the BBC aired a documentary called “Meet the Climate Sceptics” which apparently focused largely on Lord Monckton. (Click here to see the trailer. I haven’t seen the program, yet, since I don’t live in the UK.) In fact Monckton unsuccessfully attempted to have the courts stop the BBC from airing it unless they allowed him to insert a 3 minute video rebuttal into the program. That’s the good news: a full length documentary that will very likely expose Monckton’s… um… idiosyncracies.
I looked at the hit count on my blog today, and it was pretty slow until after the show started airing in the UK. Then the hit count apparently spiked tremendously. Why? A bunch of people searching Google to find out what Monckton’s miracle cure for Graves’ Disease (etc., etc., etc.) is. What a sad commentary. People see a documentary about a guy who goes around falsely claiming to be a member of Parliament and to have overturned an entire branch of science, and these people only hear, “Somebody claims to have found a cure for my disease!!!!” If anyone does find out what Monckton’s miracle cure is (I’m still betting on homeopathy or deep enemas,) please don’t forego seeing your doctor. A real doctor.
