"Viscount" Monckton at Ease Lying for Money

Christopher Walter, Third Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, who has already admitted that he finds lying for profit a perfectly acceptable pastime, appears to have been caught out adding phoney details to his own Wikipedia biography.

This link shows an exchange between Monckton and Guardian columnist George Monbiot, who demands to know why Monckton's entry on Wiki was claiming a £50,000 libel victory from a Monbiot column (no such victory having ever been posted). At the point that Monbiot informs Monckton that the offending information arrived from Monckton's own email address, the usually chatty peer goes suddenly silent.

Long may it last.

Frequent DeSmogBlog readers will recognize Monckton as the Chief Policy Advisor of the Science and Public Policy Institute (Sppinstitute.org) and passionate climate change denier whose most recent climate science contribution was to spread the now-discredited work of Klaus-Martin Schulte.
