Watch: PBS Features Climate Depot on Pope’s Climate Effort: Morano: ‘Carbon-based energy development is the best friend for poor people’

MARC MORANO (Climate Depot): Catholics in America and around the world might be puzzled, with all the other issues going on, whether it’s persecution of Christians, whether it’s severe poverty issues, whether it’s crisis in faith, priest shortages, wars, conflicts—why is the Vatican spending so much capital on global warming? That’s going to be a head scratcher.

PBS reporter KIM LAWTON: But this makes some Catholics uncomfortable. Marc Morano is part of a coalition that went to Rome in April urging the Vatican not to rely only on scientists who take what they call “an alarmist, extremist” position on climate change.

MORANO: None of the predictions, the dire predictions they made so far are coming true. They’re failing to come true. And this is one of the things that the pope is not hearing. He’s only hearing one view. Carbon-based energy development is the best friend for poor people and would give them the best chance at life.

LAWTON: Morano is also concerned about the Vatican being too closely tied to the United Nations climate agenda.

MORANO: On many issues from abortion, euthanasia, overpopulation concerns there’s going to be massive conflicts with Catholic teachings. And I think the pope has got to, and the Vatican, has to think this through better.

    The present Pope appears determined to top the act of a previous Pope that wanted to burn Galileo at the stake for seeing spots on the sun! The truth is very simple:

    CO2 is a “trace gas” in air, insignificant by definition. It absorbs 1/7th as much IR, heat energy, from sunlight as water vapor which has 188 times as many molecules capturing 1200 times as much heat making 99.8% of all “global warming.” CO2 does only 0.2% of it. For this we should destroy our economy?

    There is no “greenhouse effect” in an atmosphere. A greenhouse has a solid, clear cover that traps heat. The atmosphere does not trap heat as gas molecules cannot form surfaces to work as greenhouses. Molecules must be in contact, as in liquids and solids to form surfaces.

    The Medieval Warming from 800 AD to 1300 AD Micheal Mann erased for his “hockey stick” was several Fahrenheit degrees warmer than anything “global warmers” fear. It was 500 years of world peace and abundance, the longest in history.

    Vostock Ice Core data analysis show CO2 increases follow temperature by 800 years 19 times in 450,000 years. Thus temperature change is cause and CO2 change is effect. This alone refutes the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis.

    Methane is called “a greenhouse gas 20 to 500 times more potent than CO2,” by Heidi Cullen and Jim Hansen, but it is not per the energy absorption chart at the American Meteorological Society. It has an absorption profile very similar to nitrogen which is classified “transparent” to IR, heat waves and is only present to 18 ppm. “Green vegans” blame methane in cow flatulence for global warming in their war against eating meat.

    Carbon combustion generates 80% of our energy. Control and taxing of carbon would give the elected ruling class more power and money than anything since the Magna Carta of 1215 AD.

    Most scientists and science educators work for tax supported institutions. They are eager to help government raise more money for them and they love being seen as “saving the planet.”

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.

    These climate change charlatans are not interested in genuine science. They are only interested in cherry-picking elements of science, and misinterpreting scientific research findings to fit their flawed global warming doctrine, and promoting propaganda in their campaign to introduce their arrogant, ambitious, unscrupulous and dangerous ideology of environmentalism.

    This ideology now poses the greatest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity we have come to enjoy… more so than communism, socialism, islamic terrorism, or any other “ism”. Freedom loving people must fight to protect their freedom before an age of tyranny by the UN’s AGENDA 21 destroys industrialisation.
