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

Climate Depot

Washington, DC

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Monckton told Climate Depot that the Democrats rescinded his scheduled joint appearance at the House Energy and Commerce hearing on Friday.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

According to Monckton, Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas), Ranking Member on the Energy & Commerce Committee, had invited him to go head to head with Gore and testify at the hearing on Capitol Hill Friday. But Monckton now says that when his airplane from London landed in the U.S. on Thursday, he was informed that the former Vice-President had “chickened out” and there would be no joint appearance.

Gore is scheduled to testify on Friday to the Subcommittee on Energy and the Environment's fourth day of hearings on the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009. The hearing will be held in 2123 Rayburn House Office Building.

A GOP House source told Climate Depot that the Democrats on the Committee said “absolutely not” to allowing Monckton to appear during today's Gore hearing. The GOP committee “pushed at multiple levels” to bring Monckton in to testify but the Democrats “refused,” according to the GOP source.

Former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich was called in to testify after Monckton was rejected by the committee Democrats, according to the Congressional source.

“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.
“Waxman knows there has been no 'global warming' for at least a decade. Waxman knows there has been seven and a half years' global cooling. Waxman knows that, in the words of the UK High Court judge who condemned Gore's mawkish movie as materially, seriously, serially inaccurate, 'the Armageddon scenario that he depicts is not based on any scientific view,'” Monckton explained


Gingrich: climate bill will punish Americans


Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says a Democratic proposal to limit global warming pollution will "punish the American people" with higher energy costs and lost jobs.

Gingrich appeared before a House subcommittee writing a broad energy and climate bill aimed at cutting greenhouse gases by 80 percent by mid-century.

Gingrich, a leading Republican voice who has indicated he may seek the presidency in 2012, criticized the Democrats' cap-and-trade climate proposal. He called it "an energy tax" that will increase Americans' cost of living and kill jobs.

Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman of California accused Gingrich of trying to scare people into opposing action on climate change. Waxman argued the bill is designed to contain energy cost increases.


Wild Thing's comment............

I love trees, I live next to them, have climibed them, made love under them, love to burn real wood in the fireplace, have camped out among them, gotten shelter from them in the rain or from the sun. But I am not about to worship them like in the video above. LOL Those people scare the heck out of me.

Well, I made it through about 25 seconds of that crap then shut it off. Those people need to take up residence on Alcatraz.

I like trees too. I have planted quite a few. I don't like whackos of the kind in the film though. Those may be the same ones that burn down new houses and destroy new suvs. Really weird people. Bet they voted for Obama.

Al Gore is a coward. He refuses to ever debate his faulty junk science.

Thats why they sell Table saws, Planers and Jointers maybe, just maybe some Cabinet maker in the spirit of George Nakashima turned this hunk of wood into a nice Highboy or Grandfather clock.

Or maybe that tree went to Louisville Kentucky and they've made 1000 baseball bats.

These morons.

cuchieddie (Known Infidel),I agree with

I could make it all the way through. But
I wanted to use thevideo to show how sick
those stupid tree huggers are and we can be
sure they are all dems and voted for Obama.

Tom, I had not thought of that I bet you
are right. It would be that kind of sicko
that would do destructive things to make
their point for their cause.

Yes, Gore is a coward and he is making
tons of money off this scam of his.

Mark, love how you put that. They are nuts and so
stupid. Like the things you mentioned we need trees
for those beautiful and necessary things.
