Monckton Ridiculed for His Clumsy/Inaccurate/Manipulative "Science"

In this deleriously funny send-up of the work of Chrisopher Walter (the Third Viscount Monckton of Brenchley), writer Gareth Renowden (Hot Topic: Global Warming and the Future of New Zealand) renders a readable parable even while humiliating Monckton for his incompetence and/or his dishonesty.

Renowden has discovered an unsourceable graph in Monckton’s latest paper for the Exxon-sponsored Science and Public Policy Institute. Said graph (which Monckton incorrectly attributes to Curry and Clow 1977) appears to be an inventively modified version of a work published by Cuffey and Clow in the Journal of Geophysical Research in 1977.

Thanks to Ian Forrester and to Tim Lambert at Deltoid for turning this up.
