Inslee Rips Into Skeptic at Climategate Hearing (And Monckton slaps them back HARD)
NW Digest ^ | 5/16/10 | staff

Posted on 05/17/2010 12:07:36 PM PDT by pissant

Congressman Jay Inslee (D-Bainbridge Island) is a well-known champion of green causes in Congress. Inslee has expressed interest in running for Governor in 2012 (or before), and is seen by many on the enviro-left as a cool operator.

However, at a recent hearing to investigate the foundations of climate science, a Republican challenging Inslee for his Congressional seat says the green hero was less than courteous to an invited expert (and global warming skeptic), Lord Christopher Monckton.

To this observer, Inslee’s tone was not only condescending, but borderline angry.

It would take everything within me not to smack Inslee upside the head. What a horse’s arse.

I am from Yakima. Inslee was a representative from one of our districts quite some time ago. He was voted out because he was such a doofuss. He thought he was smart, but the obvious opposite was true then. And, nothing has changed.

He had to move to the Westside to be elected to Congress where his stupidity can blend in and be considered intelligence.

His knowledge of English peerage is only exceeded by his arrogance. The people in his district should be very proud of the ignoramus they have selected to be their spokesman.

“Inslee Rips Into Skeptic at Climategate Hearing (And Monckton slaps them back HARD)”

If that was a HARD slapback, I’d like to see what a mild correction looks like.

Both congressman are clearly over their heads on scientific issues and Inslee was embarrassingly ignorant regarding Lordships. Inslee makes a good point that the global warming hysterics send scientists to these hearings and our side is represented by a non-scientist. That makes it look like we have none. You don’t send a non-scientist to do a scientist’s job. If they are not willing to take some abuse by a congressputz what good are they.

Lord Monckton is one of the foremost experts on Global Warming. He knows more than any of the so called scientists do.

“Lord Monckton is one of the foremost experts on Global Warming. He knows more than any of the so called scientists do.”

You have to understand how the scientific community operates. Credibility is based on credentials. Has he published any peer reviewed scientific papers on the subject? Where were they published? Where did he do his research? Where and with who did he get his training? If he has no credentials he is just a dilettante. Someone who dabbles in the area but has no substance. Al Gore is a perfect example. If you have no credentials no scientist will take you seriously.

I have heard him speak many times. He is very articulate and the left cannot stand it. He is goring their sacred ox.

He has written extensively on the subject. The idea that you have to be the original researcher to understand the research is wrong.

This is a POLITICAL FIGHT now. There is no evidence of man made global warming, only half baked theories and computer ‘models’, propagated by so called scientists that are are agenda driven morons.

Not a "Best Read' in America, but one should consult Debrette's before one makes a horse's ar5e of one's self - as this idiot (Inslee) did.

Also, after Blair, the House of Lords has tended to become a hangout for trade union hacks who cannot otherwise earn themselves a living - the Lordship content has been radically downgraded.

Yet Al Gore is the leader of the Chicken Little scientists. They never criticize his “science”, instead they give him a Nobel.

“He has written extensively on the subject.”
So has Al Gore.

“The idea that you have to be the original researcher to understand the research is wrong. This is a POLITICAL FIGHT now.”

Perhaps. This is a political fight but it is being fought using science as the weapon. When they bring a scientist to testify we have to have a better one to counter him. Like in a trial when the prosecuter brings in an “expert” on DNA evidence, you cant bring in a HS science teacher to refute him.

Monckton OWNED the scientists. Has for years. I’d put him up against anybody. He is the REAL scientists best spokesman, period. There is a reason why he was there. And he stated exactly why.

No scientist uses Al Gore as a source for information. He is a spokesman and mouthpiece spreading the message to the uninformed public. Al Gore won the Nobel Peace prize, not an award for his scientific accomplishments.

I confronted Mr. Inslee when he was running for re-election in 1994 (republican take-over) in Richland and the big issue then was the assault weapons ban. I asked to explain to me why owning one of my shotguns (870 remington) that I had purchased legally 15 year before was now going to make me a felon if I changed the stock to a pistol grip.

He could never answer the question but got his just rewards for that vote in November then scampered his butt back to the Bainbridge Island where he was really from in the first place. His whole ruse that he was an eastern Washington farmer was as phony then as his thinking he’s got a shot at being the next governor...

But to the lunatic left there is no one who is a better "scientist" than theirs. The left has reduced SCIENCE to science that is determined by majority vote. They say we have 3,000 "scientists" who agree there IS Globull Warming--you only have 2,500 who say there isn't Globull Warming--so we win!"

He makes me embarrassed to be an American.

He's running against James Watkins. Donations can be made here.

the only reason I paid any attention to his writings and comments in the beginning is because he was science advisor to Margaret Thatcher. One of the first complaints I remember from him was about global warming scientists’ lack of transparency and information about actual data.

Lord Moncton was science advisor to Margaret Thatcher’s government.

He has published extensively. By the way, Science is a structured methodology independent of subject area. There is NO science in statistics! All of the claims of the AGW are based on statistical manipulations.

Inslee is an embarrassment even by the standards of Congress.
