Lord Christopher Monckton is a well-known advocate for the idea that Man-made Global Warming is a bunch of hooey. I've heard him present his considerable knowledge on the subject (he is not merely some peer with a need to make himself famous spouting off in public on a subject on which he knows nothing, like Prince Charles) on TV -- on Glenn Beck's show, I believe. Here, in this article on cfact.org, he demonstrates a writing style that puts him in direct competition with Mark Steyn.
"DELEGATES at the 18th annual UN climate gabfest at the dismal, echoing Doha conference center – one of the least exotic locations chosen for these rebarbatively repetitive exercises in pointlessness – have an Oops! problem.
"No, not the sand-flies. Not the questionable food. Not the near-record low attendance. The Oops! problem is this. For the past 16 of the 18-year series of annual hot-air sessions about hot air, the world’s hot air has not gotten hotter. There has been no global warming. At all. Zilch. Nada. Zip. Bupkis.
"The equations of classical physics do
not require the arrow of time to flow only forward. However, observation
indicates this is what always happens. So tomorrow’s predicted warming
that has not happened today cannot have caused yesterday’s superstorms,
now, can it?
"That means They can’t even get away with claiming that tropical storm Sandy and other recent extreme-weather happenings were All Our Fault. After more than a decade and a half without any global warming at all, one does not need to be a climate scientist to know that global warming cannot have been to blame."
Here, he provides a better acronym for the Intergovernment Panel on Climate Change than the one usually used: "The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPeCaC), the grim, supranational bureaucracy that makes up turgid, multi-thousand-page climate assessments every five years, has not even been invited to Doha. Oversight or calculated insult? It’s your call.
"IPeCaC is about to churn out yet another futile tome. And how will its upcoming Fifth Assessment Report deal with the absence of global warming since a year after the Second Assessment report? Simple. The global-warming profiteers’ bible won’t mention it."
Read the whole thing at http://www.cfact.org/2012/12/01/18-annual-climate-gabfests-16-years-without-warming/ You'll love it! I predict it will make you an instant fan of Lord Monckton, if you're not one already. How can you resist a man who coins words such as "yadayadathon?"
Republican Senator Jeff Sessions (AL) has written to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson asking for clarification.
"This statement is contradicted by the facts. The actual temperature data show no significant change in global temperatures over the past decade and certainly less warming than the climate change models predicted."
Sessions asked for answers on three specific questions. First, he asked whether Obama could show data demonstrating the truth of his statement; second, he asked what that data was; third, he asked for the administration’s "chart of the global average temperature increases since 1979 … versus the latest IPCC predictions.”You can find the article here: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/12/04/Sessions-asks-EPA-for-Obama-global-warming-info It's nice to see that not all Republicans are useless.

Glad to see Sessions called him on it.
