Our Heart to Lord Christopher Monckton
The United Nations Conference on Climate Change (UNCCC or COP15) in Copenhagen has concluded with no treaty , no “agreement”, no “goals” other than trivial ones, no “enforcement” provisions, and no “reparations” to third world countries, whom do we thank?
The person credited with the first, most credible denouncement of man-made global warming is MIT Professor Richard Lindzen, who presented a paper in 2005 called “Is the Global Warming Alarm Founded on Fact?”
There are the unknown conscientious “objectors” who, just prior to the UNCCC, released thousands of emails and documents proving decades of fraud by the “global warming” institutions and “scholars.” Then came the many scholarly websites (junkscience.com, wattsupwiththat.com, climatedepot.com, icecap.us, cfact.org, sppi.org—to mention just a few) and the scientists who worked over-time analyzing the leaked documents. They have pieced together at least twenty years of “faked” global warming graphs and organized suppression of opposing points of view.
Many of us had perhaps “heard” of the Copenhagen climate summit in recent years, but knew only that it was some sort of kooky follow-up to the Kyoto Treaty, which President Bush had refused to sign.
If it were not for the charismatic and diligent leadership of one man, America and the rest of the industrialized world might not have understood the expense and the socialistic aspects of the proposed Copenhagen treaty until it was way too late. Let us send a “heart” out to the Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, otherwise known as Lord Christopher Monckton of the Science and Public Policy Institute (SPPI), for his tireless efforts in the past two months.
Monckton and the scholars at SPPI, have been critics of the theory of “anthropogenic global warming” for years. As Copenhagen’s treaty summit drew nearer, Monckton went public in an unprecedented way. A YouTube video of him speaking October 14, 2009 in Minnesota was “viral” within days. It has been viewed more than 2.5 million times.
Monckton’s subsequent appearances on the Glenn Beck Fox News show and his many writings focused national attention and debate as no one else had.
Lord Monckton was a credentialed representative to the Copenhagen conference this month, but upon arrival learned he and other “non-believers” were dis-invited. He was struck and knocked to the ground by Danish police as he attempted to enter.
Undaunted, he formed his own “counter-conference” in Copenhagen, concurrent to the “main event,” with 60 climate experts.
This weekend, I sent an email to Lord Monckton to thank him for his hard work and to inquire as to his injuries. Below is his kind response which I share with the American Thinker readers:
Follow the star to silent Bethlehem!
The Saviour's cry proclaims salvation's dawn.
With "It is finished!" shall begin for us
The future born with Him on Christmas morn.
For us the Lord of Life will conquer death
And fling away the darkness of the tomb
And bring to us, who dare to love, the breath
Of life eternal from the mortal womb.
Creator creature, Father son, Life life,
Love love becomes, and wins a mother's smile,
And wins our freedom from the age-long strife
Of light with dark, of truthfulness with guile,
Of right with wrong, of joy with misery,
Of life with death. This day the world is free!
--The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley
