The image of Monckton dropping from the sky, eyes closed, destined to decry his well-worn “U.N. world-domination conspiracy” is just priceless. Witness the great non-Lord‘s descent unto the masses, assisted by a hunky “paratrooper” to guide him to dry land since he couldn’t bear to watch himself:
The Deniers of Durban sure picked a plucky way to drop in on the city hosting the UNFCCC negotiations, although their message is still stale and baseless – it’s really a shockingly desparate attempt to find a pulse for the completely lifeless and flailing “Climategate 2.0” corpse.
Apparently undeterred by the amateurish antics of the CFACT contingent, U.S.Senator James Inhofe (R-Denial) supposedly arrived in Durban today to deliver some message of importance to the denier squad.
CFACT said in its post-skydiving delerium:
“Secretary Figueras is telling the COP that she can obtain a new commitment period in Durban,” said CFACT Executive Director Craig Rucker. “After she hears what Senator Inhofe has to say, she may want to re-evaluate her wishful thinking.”
No word on whether Senator Inhofe will also parachute into Durban to join his denier dudes in action. Stay tuned for the details.
Speaking of wasted resources, here’s Monckton just before the jump, doesn’t he look thrilled to be there??!!
Prediction: Expect many of the same lies and distortions that have marked the last two years of the “Climategate” nonscandal, in which climate scientists are dragged through the mud because their personal emails were illegally published to the world wide web, while the climate denialosphere clings to the vapid conspiratorial “Climategate” meme.
Despite the complete debunking of the original edition AND the “two year old turkey” reprise they tried to dub “Climategate 2.0,” climate deniers will surely continue this charade as long as a gullible media will repeat it. Stay tuned for the next nonscandal, timed to pester the next attempt to deal with the ever-increasing climate disaster we face.
Thumbs up for flying blind and pretending climate change doesn’t exist! Way to go CFACT.
