Watch: Morano on Fox News in heated climate debate over schools banning books doubting ‘global warming’
Fox News Channel – ‘Your World w/ Neil Cavuto’ – Monday May 30, 2016 – Selected excerpts
Marc Morano: “Having just made a movie called ‘Climate Hustle’ featuring former UN scientists who turned against the UN, a Nobel Prize Winning scientist, Ivy League scientists who all come out and say they just have it flat wrong. We have a lot of fun showing the 1970s consensus about man-made global cooling and the coming Ice Age and how even NASA and the CIA got involved in promoting the cooling scare.”
“The idea that kids can’t be told — and by the way, this is worse that they can’t hear anything skeptical, the kids can’t even hear any doubts about the alleged severity of man-made global warming. The kids will be hearing about climate refugees and climate justice.”
Warmist Taryn Rosenkranz Democrat Strategist: “When it comes down to it, much like smoking causes cancer, we know carbon emissions causes climate change. We need to make sure that our students know the facts about what they can do to help.”
Morano: “Carbon dioxide is a trace gas that is essential for life on Earth and you are demonizing it as tobacco, as some kind of cancer causing gas– it’s absurd. The idea that these kids cannot be told that there is an alternative perspective, that the 97% claim of ‘consensus’ is pure myth and fabrication. The 97% claim was ‘pulled out of thin air’ according to even UN scientists. This comes down to conformity must be enforced in the name of diversity. In the name of diversity, you MUST CONFORM! That is what they are doing here, they cannot allow dissent and its very sad for kids.”
Portland school board bans ‘climate change-denying materials’ – “It is unacceptable that we have textbooks in our schools that spread doubt about the human causes and urgency of the crisis.” Bigelow is also the co-author of a textbook on environmental education, A People’s Curriculum for the Earth. Asked if this resolution will cause the district to buy new textbooks, such as his book, Bigelow said ReThinking Schools is a nonprofit, not a money-maker.
Actual Portland resolution: – “Citizens of the world.” – “Climate change is already having an enormous negative impact on nature and people around the world—which will only become worse—including present and future Portland Public Schools students…There is overwhelming consensus…to build climate justice curriculum—especially inviting the participation of people from “frontline” communities, which have been the first and hardest hit by climate change—and people who are here, in part, as climate refugees…The implementation plan should include a review of current textbooks for accuracy around the severity of the climate crisis and the impact of human activities. PPS will abandon the use of any adopted text material that is found to express doubt about the severity of the climate crisis or its root in human activities…climate literacy.”
Warmist teenagers win ‘historic victory’ in global warming lawsuit – Four Massachusetts teens who say they were sick of watching the state drag its feet on global warming went to court — and yesterday came away with a historic victory that could have lasting effects for decades. The Supreme Judicial Court has sided with Olivia Gieger and Shamus Miller of Wellesley High School, and Isabel Kain and James Coakley of Boston Latin School — high school kids who sued the Department of Environmental Protection. The court agreed with them that the state has failed to fulfill its legal obligation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
