Report: Democrats Refuse to Allow Skeptic to Testify Alongside Gore At Congressional Hearing

There are 1231 comments on the www.climatedepot.com story from Apr 24, 2009, titled Report: Democrats Refuse to Allow Skeptic to Testify Alongside Gore At Congressional Hearing. In it, www.climatedepot.com reports that:

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Monckton told Climate Depot that the Democrats rescinded his scheduled joint appearance at the House Energy and Commerce hearing on Friday.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.”

“The Democrats have a lot to learn about the right of free speech under the US Constitution. Congress Henry Waxman's (D-CA) refusal to expose Al Gore's sci-fi comedy-horror testimony to proper, independent scrutiny by the House minority reeks of naked fear,” Monckton said from the airport Thursday evening.

What the American public thought is of no concern to me, as a Brit, I was among the majority who were against Blair sending troops to Iraq until the weapons inspectors had completed their task.
Britain is ahead on points with regard to public opinion against AGW, it's just that they still have a government of socialist loons who are ready to sink the country.

Climategate: CBC on the greatest scientific scandal of our times

Rex Murphy of CBC gets it. A lesson for Australian TV talking heads on not just the importance of the scandal, but how it can inspire compelling TV comment, too.
More evidence on Monday of readers’ hunger for news that the mainstream media here is running dead on. It’s news I’m rather pleased by.

How about it you keep trying to believe it is real dispite all the evidence to the contary. After all the evidence proving AGW to be garbage.
My boy "Dick" had an advance copy of the speech just like the media and nearly everyone else. After all your boy cannot say a simple phrase without his teleprompter. And "Dick" wasn't the only one who was talking about Obama's speech before it came out of his mouth.
Cable news has so much time to fill they let anybody with name recognition talk. That's the problem; politicians with personal agendas like Cheney are treated the same as recognized experts in foreign policy, economics, etc. Cheney is disgusting. He thinks if he criticizes Obama that will somehow offset the mess he made while he was in charge.

If that was the case then the best thing he could do is follow Bush's example and keep quiet and let Obama continue to make a bigger mess than he already has.

Science is based on experiments, to refine theory. There are no experiments compelling climate change mitigation.

Spewing hate or pointing out that he was making a mess out of the economy. Funny thing is three years later the fact is I was right. How many times under Bush did anyone threated to downgrade the US credit rating? How often was Bush unable to get a budget past.

So far, neither of them had come close to the mess Obama made. Both Carter and Bush should write Obama a thank you note. After all, Obama is now hands down the worse president in history.
