John Abraham of St. Thomas Univ., Minn., produces must hear debunking of the Potty Peer Monckton -- an employee of the Climate Denial Machine

MN professor eviscerates Monckton in must-see video

TVMOB's talk proves "how easy it is to fabricate data."

Climate Progress, May 27, 2010

“The number of errors Chris Monckton makes is so enormous it would take a thesis to go through every single one of them.”
The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley (TVMOB) is a shameless purveyor of hate speech and anti-science disinformation (see links below).

Nonetheless, you rarely sees such a thorough debunking of an anti-science disinformer as this astonishing point-by-point evisceration put together by John Abraham, an engineering professor at St. Thomas University in St. Paul, MN.

One of the two reasons you rarely see this is because few people are willing to put in the time and effort that Prof. Abraham has — not merely looking up just about every reference TVMOB uses but actually e-mailing the authors of those scientific papers and asking them if TVMOB has accurately represented their work.

The second reason you rarely see this kind of thorough dismantlement is that few people make stuff up with the relentlessness of TVMOB or push the kind of hate speech that make people want to debunk them entirely:
Kudo to Abraham for this masterful debunking.

Dear Mr Abraham,

I am very intersted in you responding to Lord Moncktons rebuttel of your debunking.

Please forward me a copy when this is prepared.

I have posted your comment, but I cannot imagine why more time should be wasted on responding to an idiot who doesn't know what he is talking about and apparently is incapable of learning.

Dr. Abraham is not academically trained as a climate scientist or even so called climate modeler, he is just a Mechanical Engineering trained and CFD modeler at most, I bet he can not figure out himself how 400 ppm CO2 molecue in atomosphere temperature behave in terms of radiative heat transfer, his so called expertise. He has a lot to learn for himself

Oh brother! Planet X strikes again!

lemme c, you decide: Monckton has an undergraduate degree in journalism or the classics or something and has published no peer-reviewed science articles and lacks a basic understanding of the laws of physics, while Dr. Abraham has a Ph.D. and C.V. as follows:

And his revised rebuttal is here:

I will not post any more comments from you because it is such a waste of time.
