Its disgusting how the democrats continue to protect Al Gore. His global warming theories are bunk. The earth is curently in a cooling trend and he won't admit it. In the past Monckton has publicly challenged Gore to a debate. Gore of course has refused. The GOP invited Monckton to go head to head with Gore on Friday (April 24, 2009) however when he arrived he was told that Gore had "chickened out" and he would not be allowed to speak.
Quote from article:
UK's Lord Christopher Monckton, a former science advisor to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, claimed House Democrats have refused to allow him to appear alongside former Vice President Al Gore at a high profile global warming hearing on Friday April 24, 2009 at 10am in Washington. Monckton told Climate Depot that the Democrats rescinded his scheduled joint appearance at the House Energy and Commerce hearing on Friday. Monckton said he was informed that he would not be allowed to testify alongside Gore when his plane landed from England Thursday afternoon.
“The House Democrats don't want Gore humiliated, so they slammed the door of the Capitol in my face,” Monckton told Climate Depot in an exclusive interview. “They are cowards.”
