Climate Changes, But Facts Don’t: Debunking Monckton

For the past 1.5 years there has been very little activity by me on my YouTube channel and on this website. This wasn’t because I had given up on creating content, far from it. During this time I was working, when I could, on a big project. Something I did hint towards a couple of times.

This big project was me going through the parts of a debate Monckton took part it. This debate took place on the 19th of July in 2011 and was held by National Press Club of Australia which had as subject climate change.

The reason I did this is because Monckton challenges his critics to check his sources, or like he put it in this debate “to do your homework”. I followed him up on this to see if the scientific literature, and other available sources, corroborate what he’s saying. It just took me a long time to trace down everything, go through the materials, write the script and edit/record the video (plus I also had other obligations that interfered with this).

I hope you will find the resulting video interesting and informative.

PS -- A full transcript for this video is available. The transcript has been split up in the different claims made by Monckton and are listed in chronological order. On the page for each individual claim you will also find a full listing of all the sources I used for that particular section of the video.
