Lord Christopher Monckton

"Quite often in this field [medicine] politics comes first and science second. We must take a position based upon the science and the data." -- Arata Kochi, physician, September 15th 2006

"It is a logical fallacy. In fact, it is in the Aristotelian canon of logical fallacies. ... We feel sorry for the polar bears cuz they're cuddly and therefore global warming is terrible. There is no logic in that. It is all emotion." -- Lord Christopher Monckton, polymath, 2009

"The most unreliable source on Earth: Wiki Bloody Pedia." -- Lord Christopher Monckton, polymath, 2009

"It is a clear and continuing instance of deliberate bad faith." -- Lord Christopher Monckton, polymath, 2009

"The fact of warming, which of course stopped in 1995 and hasn't really resumed since, but the fact of warming does not tell us it's cause. ... We don't know what's causing the warming, so we're going to blame it on anything we like. That's not a rational or logical argument. And it might just as well be Al Gore with his flamethrower on the surface of Greenland." -- Lord Christopher Monckton, polymath, 2009

Fixed it for you.

While we're ignoring GW, can we also lock up all the sick people?

Monckton is an ass. (A genius, to be sure, but still an ass.)

Interesting link.

Do you suppose the corbelling and acoustic effects were purposeful, accidental, or do you think we have yet to find the forerunners of such edifices?

You know, rooms that almost work like the Hypogeum, but not quite... or do you suppose they just "knew" it worked in that fashion? That is, was the Hypogeum constructed without trial and error?
