Shock: Warmist John Abraham deeply misrepresents Christopher Monckton again

As far as I know, Monckton's first major splash as a climate realist was in his "Apocalypse Cancelled" writing back in 2006; note that even back then, Monckton agreed that there is a man-made greenhouse effect.  I think Monckton, along with the vast majority of climate realists including myself, has long believed that man must have some influence on climate; the magnitude of that influence is the major question.

With the forthcoming IPCC report, the contrarians finally agree we are changing the climate | John Abraham | Environment |
There is some belief that the IPCC will lower the range of climate sensitivity by a tiny amount. If my crystal ball is correct, the denialosphere will latch onto this, and will, unwittingly, be agreeing that the IPCC is correct; we are changing the climate. You cannot both accept the IPCC conclusions that humans are changing the climate and simultaneously claim that climate change is either not occurring or is natural. In the end, the contrarians will be in the "slow simmer" camp. So listen carefully to the Christopher Moncktons, James Inhofes, and Rush Limbaughs of this world. Wait for them to bring up the IPCC sensitivity and realize just how much they have conceded.

[2006] This week, I’ll show how the UN undervalued the sun’s effects on historical and contemporary climate, slashed the natural greenhouse effect, overstated the past century’s temperature increase, repealed a fundamental law of physics and tripled the man-made greenhouse effect.
