British scientist Lord Monkton — a former policy advisor to Margaret Thatcher during her years as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom — says:
A careful study of the substantial corpus of peer-reviewed science reveals that Mr. Gore’s film, An Inconvenient Truth, is a foofaraw of pseudo-science, exaggerations, and errors, now being peddled to innocent schoolchildren worldwide.
“Foofaraw” … I love it.
Better still, he has challenged Mr. Gore to a formal debate to evaluate the scientific merits of his global warming hype.
And the venue? “[T]he elegant, Victorian-Gothic Library of the Oxford Museum of Natural History, which was the setting for the ‘Great Debate’ between the natural scientist T. H. Huxley and Bishop ‘Soapy Sam’ Wilberforce on the theory of evolution, following the publication of Darwin’s Origin of Species.”
From Monkton’s formal invitation to Mr. Gore:
The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley presents his compliments to Vice-President Albert Gore and by these presents challenges the said former Vice-President to a head-to-head, internationally-televised debate upon the question, ‘That our effect on climate is not dangerous,’ to be held in the Library of the Oxford University Museum of Natural History at a date of the Vice-President’s choosing.
Forasmuch as it is His Lordship who now flings down the gauntlet to the Vice-President, it shall be the Vice-President’s prerogative and right to choose his weapons by specifying the form of the Great Debate. May the Truth win! Magna est veritas, et praevalet. God Bless America! God Save the Queen!
Al has science on his side, right? He has nothing to be afraid of, right?
This, I would pay money to see.
