Response to Monckton's idiotic attack on Paul Nurse.

Excellent!

 

I particularly liked:

" ... we concur that the Royal Society climate guide is "largely sensible."  Which means we also agree that Christopher Monckton is largely not."

 

As subtle as a a sledgehammer wrapped in barbed wire!

Thanks.  I figure at this point, the time for subtlety with Monckton has passed :-)

Wonder how many are going to be offended by the word bunkum?

Rob P:

In the above quotes, Monckton uses the term himself. So, shouldn't be hard to defend.

Yeah actually Nurse used it first (and possibly the crock of the week even before that), and then in copying Nurse's text, Monckton used it too.  So nobody is in a position to complain over our use of the word :-)

Frankly I don't even know what it means - some sort of British insult?  I assumed it's basically the same as "bunk", as in "nonsense".

Sorry dana, 'bunkum' is American in origin.  Originally a politician named 'Buncombe'.  Now commonly shortened to 'bunk'.

Oh. Well. I probably should have known that :-)

Nice one Dana - no wonder Monckton hates you!

Does Monckton hate me too?  He probably isn't even aware of my existence, but if so, he can join the ever-growing list!
