Leading flat-earther James Delingpole stumped by vaguely intelligent question on tv

A little off-topic for this blog, but it is difficult to cover modern right-wing politics without broaching the delicate subject of climate change. Regular Telegraph columnist James Delingpole is a member of that most pernicious of species: the 'global warming is a made-up evil Marxist scam' brigade. Their usual approach to rational argument is to put their fingers in their ears, metaphorically speaking, and their approach to science is to, well, ignore it. They are 'flat earthers'. They are frequently, as this clip demonstrates admirably, totally at a loss when faced with a vaguely sensible question.
