Lord Christopher Monckton has been raising the alarm against the dangers of the loss of sovereignty that the Copenhagen climate change conference treaty presents. [MORE on Copenhagen: Copenhagen Climate Scam: Read the Treaty Obama Wants to Sign]
Previously, readers may have heard of the British peer who sued Al Gore over the former VP's inaccuracies that are shown in "An Inconvenient Truth".
Freedom Works: "He (Lord Monckton) sued to prevent Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" from being forced into British classrooms... and won. The judge ordered that 9 serious inaccuracies in the film be corrected."
Readers may also be familiar with the journalist who asked Al Gore about all of this at a Society of Environmental Journalists meeting. The journalist who asked the inconvenient question had his microphone cut off and he was ejected from the meeting.
From Confronting Al Gore with An Inconvenient Question:
The Society of Environmental Journalists spent much of their conference in Madison, Wisconsin questioning why mainstream journalism was dying.
Then they answered their own question when they decided it was their role to protect Al Gore from An Inconvenient Question.
Who is Lord Monckton?
So, exactly who is this member of British nobility who most likely could avoid all of the hassles of opposing the Gore-O-Matic Man Made Climate Change Machine that has sprung up over the last decade? (Remember, as recently as 25-30 years ago, it was speculated that the Earth was endangered by "Global Cooling". In fact, some of the same scientists who are warning of "Global Warming" were worried then about "Global Cooling." [Climate Change 30 Years Ago: Media, Scientists Pimped for Global Cooling]
From Christopher Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley:
Christopher Walter Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley (born 14 February 1952) is a British politician, business consultant, policy adviser, writer, columnist, inventor and hereditary peer. He served as an advisor to Margaret Thatcher's policy unit in the 1980s and invented the Eternity puzzle at the end of the 1990s. More recently, he has attracted controversy for his public opposition to the mainstream scientific consensus on climate change. He also announced a sequel to his original puzzle called Eternity II in 2007, which is still unsolved.

From Christopher Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley:
Monckton is critical of the theory of anthropogenic causes for climate change and the stated scope of it, which he regards as a controversy catalyzed by "the need of the international left for a new flag to rally round" following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. He has expressed doubt about the reality of global warming in a number of newspaper articles and papers. He has been described in some quarters as a "former science adviser to British prime minister Margaret Thatcher and a world-renowned scholar."
However, his credentials as a commentator on climate change have been questioned by some commentators. James Hoggan and Richard Littlemore note in their book Climate Cover-Up: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming that Monckton has "no training whatsoever in science", and criticize his asserted credentials as "unfounded self-promotion." The Daily Telegraph has described him as "a former economic adviser"
Lord Monckton spoke in the U.S. last week. From Lord Monckton’s warning to America:
Lord Christopher Monckton, former adviser to Margaret Thatcher, spoke at Bethel University in St. Paul, MN last week on the UN Climate Change treaty scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009. He was hosted by the Minnesota Free Market Institute.

None of Lord Monckton's actions have endeared him to the cabal of grant-grubbing scientists, hand-wringing lemmings and opportunistic politicians pushing the agenda of more taxes, more regulation and more control that constitutes climate change policy.
Salon's Alex Koppelman criticized Monckton's assertions about the conference's framework as being "woefully inaccurate. And that's a nice way of putting it."
Koppelman also wrote: "Unfortunately for Monckton and those who've fallen for what he said without doing some rudimentary checking of the document's language, there's more than one meaning of the word "government." There's the conventional definition, the one he used, and then there's this one, which is very clearly the one intended in this case: "direction; control; management; rule: the government of one's conduct.""
Somehow, that doesn't make this writer, with the knowledge of how both U.S. and U.N. programs have burgeoned into bureaucratic behemoths, feel any more secure--Alex Koppelman's assurances aside.

From Edison Out, Communist China In:
The new energy bill makes the incandescent light bulb illegal as of 2014. The light bulb invented by Thomas Edison will no longer be accepted by the US Governement under the notion that it is not evironmentally friendly enough. It will be replaced by the Compact Flourescent Lightbulb (CFL).
Guess where every single CFL is produced? China. Isn't it interesting that in the name of a "green" america, we are outlawing "american" incandescent light bulbs, and replacing them with "communist" flourscent lightbulbs? And the worst part, is that these so called "green" CFL's aren't even "green". In fact they are extremley toxic. So much so that the EPA has a 3 page single space instruction manual on disposing of these "green" bulbs. If one is burned out, and you are merely throwing it away, you are supposed to put the bulb in two, sealed plastic bags, so if the bulb breaks it doesn't "pollute the landfill". It must be pretty nasty if it can pollute a landfill.
But we digress.
Lord Monckton is one man railing against the charlatans of Climate Change.
It won't be the last time--hopefully--we hear from this brave Brit.
