Lord Christopher Monckton Called For AIDS Internment Camps

December 11, 2009 3:48 pm ET — Chris Harris

Famous climate change denier Lord Christopher Monckton has made headlines this week for calling green protestors "Hitler youth," and saying those concerned with global warming have killed more people than Hitler.

For Monckton, it seems, making controversial statements is nothing new.

In the January 1987 issue of the conservative American Spectator, he argued that the only way to contain the then-new AIDS epidemic was to create quarantine AIDS patients in internment camp-like facilities.

Hopefully Monckton's habit of making deplorable statements will give Congressional Republicans pause before they promote his views on climate change... even more than they already have.
