The Monckton Maneuver

Science journalist Peter Hadfield (aka Potholer54) once again takes on Chris Monckton after Monckton replied to Hadfield's video series, Monckton Bunkum, on WattsUpWithThat.  The result is nothing short of devastating.  Hadfield simply uses Monckton to debate Monckton, calling it "the Monckton Maneuver" where his lordship ineptly tries to dodge his own words. 

Part 1:

Part 2:

Our own Dana Nuccitelli has taken on Monckton in the past with Monckton, the Anti-Nurse. As well, SkS has a full catalog on inaccuracies that are promoted by the viscount under the Monckton Myths button on the left sidebar.

If you haven't seen the original 5 part Monckton Bunkum series it's well worth taking the time to watch.  You can start here with Lord Monckton Bunkum, Part 1.
