Mexican Missives Done Well

The right response to the non-problem of global warming is to have the courage to do nothing.
Christopher Monckton

I write because I love to write. Well, for that and the desire to improve any marginal abilities I may have. While I use this blog to improve my working vocabulary, paragraph transitions and to practice various styles and tenses, I always love to read the output of a truly great wordsmith. Such are the ramblings of Lord Christopher Moncton, the Viscount of Brenchley.

For those unfamiliar with Lord Moncton, he was an adviser for Margret Thatcher in the United Kingdom. As such, he studied global warming and is a self-taught expert in its debunking. While not fitting the legal definition of a scientist, Lord Moncton has had numerous scientific papers published in peer-reviewed journals. His intelligence, wisdom, innate wit and marvelous oratory skills have made him the bane of those with the courage to debate for the legitimacy of manmade global warming.

For the moment, Lord Moncton is at the United Nations Climate Conference (COP16) in Cancun, Mexico. He is a scheduled speaker there later in the week. In his free time, he has been entertaining those who follow the Watts Up With That (WUWT) blog by sending his so-called Mexico Missives for Anthony Watts to post. See http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/12/06/moncktons-mexican-missive/ and http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/12/07/moncktons-mexico-missive-2/.

Lord Moncton’s missives are what I strive for as a writer. His command of the English language, blended with that dry, British humor, makes his writing brilliant. I hope someday to achieve something close to it, of course, minus the British humor. Please click on the above links, especially the second one, and read the posts. They are a joy.
