“They haven’t been too friendly to skeptics this year,” said Marc Morano, a former Republican party worker who runs the skeptical Climate Depot blog for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), based in Washington, D.C.
Morano said his group, which had the sole skeptic booth in the venue’s exhibit hall, had not done as much work inside the U.N. summit grounds as it normally does, in part because organizers had not issued enough passes.
A U.N. official did not respond to a request for comment, though organizers have said they had to ration passes because of demand.
On Monday night, Morano showed his new film, “Climate Hustle” in a Paris cinema, featuring climate-sceptic scientists. Police cordoned off the road leading to the venue as guests lined up and a demonstrator hung a banner on a nearby gate reading “Welcome Heartland Institute Scum”.
“Global warming is a global hustle,” said David Rothbard, CFACT’s director, arguing that the result of a climate deal would be a loss of U.S. sovereignty.
