Monckton's cure for climate change: Put the scientists in jail

on

Christopher Monckton, leading voice for the denier delegation sponsored by the oil-backed Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, has been recorded telling youth delegate Brennan Garrett that the cure for the Kyoto protocol is to lock up all the world’s best climate scientists for “fraud” and “racketerring.”

Monckton, who won a certain amount of infamy in the 1980s by saying that the UK government should lock up and quarantine all people with HIV/AIDS, turns his attention in this video to how the same “cure” could be applied to scientists who are trying to get the world’s attention on climate change. When Garrett implies that it is actually the deniers who are “new,” who’s efforts could be fatal for a huge portion of earth’s population and who’s condition (denial) appears incurable, Monckton chooses to miss the point.
