The Christopher Booker Prize for Climate Change Bullshit

Today I launch a prestigious and coveted award. Who will the lucky winner be?

By George Monbiot. Published on my Guardian blog, 6th February 2009

The award will go to whoever manages, in the course of 2009, to cram as many misrepresentations, distortions and falsehoods into a single article, statement, lecture, film or interview about climate change. This work must be available online. You score a point for every mistake, though one point will be deducted for every retraction or correction published by the author or the original outlet within a reasonable length of time.
