Monckton Monsters Guardian Environment Editor

The Guardian Environment Editor John Vidal has done two very silly things - neither of which will enhance his reputation. The first was to enter a contest with the razor sharp mind of Lord Monckton who has seen off much more competent and credentialed adversaries and secondly after getting a hiding , to publish the one-sided debate in a national newspaper of which at the moment ,he is an editor. Listen for yourself!

A heated debate on climate change between the Guardian's environment editor John Vidal and Lord Christopher Monckton Link to this audio
Most people steered clear, but Monckton had no hesitation in barging in on conversations, reeling off statistics and arguments that, he said, proved not only that the world was not warming but that "certain newspapers" were not reporting the reality.
