"Serious observers are interpreting this shock result as a sign that students are now impatiently rejecting the relentless extremist propaganda taught under the guise of compulsory environmental-studies classes in British schools, confirming opinion-poll findings that the voters are no longer frightened by “global warming” scare stories, if they ever were."

Yeah I'll leave my opinion up to actual climate scientists, thank you.

Born and raised Catholic. Although I'm no longer a participant in Catholicism, people often forget about the different branches of Christianity. Catholics once used to be hardcore on being strict and to the word of the Bible (Their Interputation at least). Now they are overall one of the most relaxed branches of Christianity. I personally don't know any Catholics who would deny Global Warming or Evolution (Hell I know some who don't give a flying f**k about gay marriage and lean heavily to the left). Although this can be skewed from my own opinion, but I do live in Chicago which is the Catholic center of the US and votes heavily democratic.

Yeah I went to Catholic school for 7 years and it was very interesting to find out how diverse and progressive Catholic thinking is these days. The head of our Biology department was a Benedictan Monk and taugh evolution as fact, while the school as a whole openly embraced LGBT sympathy. Then again, this was also in the liberal San Francisco Bay Area, so I think regional ideological tribalism is a much, MUCH more powerful method of keeping opinions homogenous than religion.

Just by watching the first few minutes of this one video, it's already clear that he makes numerous mistakes, which takes away pretty much all of his credibilty.

However, I don't think that climate change deniers really care about that. Monckton's explanation sounds good, which is already enough to ease their conscience and not care about climate change at all.

Monckton has long since been discredited, his claims thoroughly debunked, particularly his inflated claims of his own credentials.  potholer54 has shredded Monckton's arguments before the above "debate" even took place, as you can see below.  


For those who are interested in learning more about Climate Change and seeing the myths on both sides of the discussion debunked, I invite you to watch this playlist.  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL82yk73N8eoX-Xobr_TfHsWPfAIyI7VAP ; you will find these videos in it.

I was just about to post Peter Hadfield's excellent series on Monckton and global warming. Thanks very much for this!
