I'm not entirely sure what you guys are getting at here, though!
In the meantime, over at WUWT, Monckton sets things straight for himself:
"Mr. Metzler, in a pointlessly angry posting, wonders whether anyone at WattsUpWithThat accepts the physical properties of CO2 that were established 200 years ago. My post explicitly mentioned, with approval, John Tyndale’s experiment of 1859, which established that the greenhouse effect is real and that CO2 contributes to it. It is really no longer possible for the climate-extremist faction to continue to maintain that the scientific debate between skeptics and alarmists is about whether CO2 causes warming. It does: get used to it. The debate is about how much warming the CO2 causes – a quantitative, not a qualitative, question. And, as I hope shortly to prove, the warming that CO2 causes is not enough to worry about, still less to spend trillions on."
Who agrees with The Lord, and who does not? In my time in the Climate Wars, I've met very many who would recoil like a disturbed slow-worm (and believe you me they move quick when annoyed) to Monckton's assertion. The Opposition does seem rather factional WRT this. No greenhouse effect, greenhouse effect yet it is minimal, it's the sun, it's cosmic rays and so on and so forth.
In the meantime, again, I've been busy elsewhere:
This should be especially interesting to Andre - and the second bit with the interview will be coming soon.
If anyone wants copies of the heap of climatology PDFs I now have, please just call by with a clean memory-stick!
