Climate Change Denier Lord Monckton Actually Sacha Baron Cohen Character? (VIDEO)

Famed climate change denier Lord Christopher Monckton, an advisor to former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, has been outed as the construct of none other than character comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

Ok, not really, but wouldn't that make way more sense than this guy being an actual person who actually believes what he says?

Australian media-spoof series The Hamster Wheel not only came up with this inspired concept, but also, miraculously, tricked Monckton into sitting down for an incredibly awkward interview.
