Watts Live Blogs Monckton Address to California Assembly Committee

The Details are HERE.

 That is our Assemblyman Dan Logue sitting to the right of Monckton in the center of the picture.  Anthony sent a series of pictures with comment on the presentation, more HERE.

Here is a comment by another observer Charles Greenlaw:

I was also there in that room; it was packed long before the appointed hour and I arrived early in expectation of that — it’s typical of legislative committee meeting room gatherings. I was grateful for excellent air conditioning in that room in the oldest part of the nicely rebuilt and upgraded state capitol building.

You noted, “Crowd well behaved.” No surprise as the audience was heavily fellow Tea Party members from outlying communities — Lincoln, Roseville, Grass Valley, Lodi, etc., none wearing their colors. Respect for decorum in that elegant venue comes naturally to us and, as I’ve witnessed, in-room sergeants-at-arms tolerate no disruptive behavior or demonstrations. No Occupiers or other protesters were in evidence. This evening’s repeat is in the student union at CSU Sacramento and could be otherwise.

Lord Monckton was indeed the celebrity rock star to this audience, deservedly so. His cheerful presentation was candidly credible in a genteel, understated way as one expects from an English gentleman, adroitly leaving it to the listener to fill in from his/her own intellect that the case for controlling CO2 is built on serial episodes of cause-consumed scientists’ manipulation and false witness, that the economic cost of implementing California’s AB32 ambition to reduce this state’s CO2 emissions by 25% will obtain negligible reduction in global warming at a cost ten times that needed to adapt to all-cause warming is prohibitive, and that repeal of 2006-enacted AB32 is the only good remedy.

Anthony, thanks for attending and reporting on this event in trying conditions.

Yes, Anthony thanks for the live blog report. I hope someone will blog on the Monckton’s presentation at Sac State.
