The Great Sex Robot Debate at Ideacity

Christopher Monckton made Toronto's Global Warming cultists have a hissy fit

Renowned for innovation, Moses Znaimer has never been afraid of hearing out ideas that run against the stream. So in character, one of the presenters Znaimer chose for his IdeaCity gathering currently happening on the cusp of Toronto's Annex neighborhood was the cantankerous and convincing Christopher Monckton. The United Kingdom Independence Party's chief spokesman on Climate Change, Monckton is one of the most prominent challengers of the prevailing Global Warming hysteria that embodies the current zeitgeist.

As many who have actually studied the issue know, the data on global warming provides, at the very least, ample ground for skepticism that current weather trends spell the end of life on earth as we know it. But with the media, the majority of the political class, and pop-figures like David Suzuki pushing junk science to the masses, a Global Warming cult has emerged that exhibits all the fanatical devotion that you would have found littered among the corpses at Jonestown. For them, anthropogenic Global Warming is a fact which can tolerate no challenge. It is, in the words of no less a personage than Barack Hussein Obama, "settled science," a term which, as Charles Krauthammer, who is a physician and psychiatrist noted, flouts the basic principles of genuine science. Tellingly, the Global Warming cult's response to Krauthammer's stating that was an attempt to launch an inquisition against him and have him censored.

Using cruel, eloquent sarcasm and biting wit, Monckton mocked the Global Warming cult at sheep who are caught up is a mass of groupthink. He backed it up with fact, such as that despite predictions and models from the International Panel on Climate Change that proved to be wrong, there has been no global warming for the last eighteen years. Monckton cited evidence that suggests that the environmental and economic methods being employed to fight global warming are actually causing more deaths than global warming ever will.

The reality of the science on Global Warming is that there are differing theories of the extent and what will be the outcome of mankind's effect on the environment. Not that most people know that, since huge swaths of the political class, mainstream media and even, as Monckton pointed out, scientific journals have colluded to bully and censor any dissenting opinions into silence.

The normally polite crowd at Znaimer's IdeaCity reflected that. While the responses to presenters can be noted by varied degrees of enthusiasm, something happened during Monckton's presentation that I've never observed at one of the Idea City presentations before. At various times, Monckton was actually hissed at by much of the downtown Toronto "progressive" crowd at IdeaCity, who felt threatened as their dogmatic beliefs were being challenged and ridiculed.

But there was another sceptic listening to Monckton who gave a strong indication that people are beginning to see through the hysteria of the Global Warming cult and its high priests like Al Gore and Suzuki who profit handsomely from the sale of their liturgic snake oil. Following Monckton's presentation, IdeaCity's host Moses Znaimer said that he sensed that the tide was turning about the belief in Global Warming and realizing that there are compelling facts to indicate, as has happened throughout the history of science, that what is now the majority belief may indeed be wrong.

He's not actually a member of the House of Lords. He just pretends he is. Look it up

Richard K said...

I don't believe he pretends to be. He is a Viscount but due to changes in the House of Lords Act did not inherit the seat. I got that bit wrong and fixed it. Thanks.

Actually, he did pretend to be a member of the House of Lords until the House of Lords sent him a cease and desist letter demanding that he stop. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2011/jul/18/climate-monckton-member-house-lords

Monckton exposes the Global Warming hoax around the world. he is tremendous. he made the warming wacko's heads explode in a recent Australia vist. UN stooge/criminal Puchari, Kooki Suzuki are terrified of him.

It's true-the poverty resulting from "healing the earth" from climate change will kill hundreds of millions.

Only $5000 for three days? Live video is fine, how long before they go on the website?

Did you watch all four climate talks? A musician and photographer, really? Did Ridley do the same as today's Financial Post: http://business.financialpost.com/2014/06/19/ipcc-climate-change-warming/

The Summary of Hugh O’Donoghue’s opinion on this topic in which these issues are discussed, follows:

SUMMARY

I am asked to consider whether The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley was correct when, in a recent radio interview in Australia, he answered the question "Are you a member of the House of Lords?" by saying, "Yes, but without the right to sit or vote." My conclusion is that Lord Monckton‟s answer was and is correct at all points. We have the authority of two Law Lords in the Privileges Committee that the meaning of the words "membership of the House" in the Act is confined to the right to sit and vote. The implication is that in all other respects excluded Hereditary Peers remain members of the House. Also, the Letters Patent that created Peerages such as that of Monckton of Brenchley have not been revoked, and we have the recent authority both of the Leader of the House and of the High Court for that. Though the House of Lords Act 1999 purported to remove "membership of the House of Lords" from excluded Hereditary Peers including Lord Monckton‟s late father, its constitutionality is questionable. Peerages entail membership of the House. Lord Monckton is correct to state that he does not at present have the right to sit or vote, though if the 1999 Act is unconstitutional the excluded Hereditary Peers are unlawfully excluded. Therefore, Lord Monckton remains a Member not only of the Peerage but also of the House of Lords, save only that he cannot for now sit or vote there, and he was and is fully entitled to say so.

The only ones who still seem to buy into this hoax are those from major metropolises.

They sit in their condo towers, sipping their double mocha lattes, with all of their electronic toys scattered around the place, usually consisting of 2 cell phones per person. A laptop. An Ipad. Maybe a PC, but that's so déclassé. Then you have a tv in each room. A GPS in their Toyota Hybrid. Probably a DVD player in the backseat for the kids.

But just to assuage their guilt at their unbridled consumerism, they will gladly sign an online petition to oppose the Koch Brothers and the Northern Gateway pipeline.

And their leaders are snake oil salesmen, like Gore and Suzuki and Hollywood stars who get on their gigantic yachts and jets and talk about how awesome they are for caring about the earth.

Afterwards, they hide from the earth's wrath behind the thick walls of their mansions protected by gilded gates. What would all the stupid little people do without them?

Next week - it's off to all the starving nations of the world to prevent them from using electricity!

Lord Monckton: "The House of Lords Act 1999 debarred all but 92 of the 650 Hereditary Peers, including my father, from sitting or voting, and purported to – but did not – remove membership of the Upper House."

So he is a member of the House of Lords!
