Via Raw Story website: Morano in video - Full PowerPoint here: “Today we are told we need a fundamental transformation of our lives in order to end bad weather,” he said. “We are told we need EPA regulations and UN treaties in order to spare us from more hurricanes and floods and droughts and all this bad weather.”
“If science and religion are united, what are they united on?” Morano said. “Well, actually, the new climate commissioners gave us a clue. It’s not about science. Even if the science is wrong, the policy is right.”
Morano argued that people who talked about climate change were not really worried about the environment — they only used the issue to push for socialist policies. He said climate science was like astrology, because “no matter what climate event it is always exactly what the models predicted.”
“There was 97 percent consensus in the middle ages that witches caused bad weather and now we are told there is a 97 percent consensus that every storm and every bad weather is [linked to climate change].”
Responding to the president’s address, Marc Morano, who runs climatedepot.com (with numerous links to scientific studies, including data from NASA, NOAA, and other credible sources) said this: “It is hard to even take today’s speech by Obama seriously on either a logical, scientific or political level. The speech was so farcical in its claims that it hardly merits a response. It is obvious that the climate establishment is seeking new talking points on ‘global warming’ to change the subject from the simple fact that global temperatures are not cooperating with their claims.”
Don’t you love farce?
According to Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) data, “Since December 1996, there has been no global warming at all. … A new record length for the Pause: 18 years 5 months. … The discrepancy between prediction and observation continues to widen.”
In fact, extreme weather has failed to follow the alarmist predictions of climate change cultists. Data readily available and linked to scientific studies through climatedepot.com has found no trends, or declining trends when it comes to the frequency of hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, floods and wildfires.'
Climate Depot's Response:'The President's speech was so farcical in its claims that it hardly merits a response. Contrary to the President’s claims, it seems ISIS may in fact trump ICE as a bigger concern. Actually believing Obama’s climate claims, undermines our nation’s ability to distinguish real threats from politically contrived nonsense. UN climate treaties and EPA climate regulations will not prevent wars, conflicts or impact the creation of terrorist groups.
“This is nothing short of an ‘Unholy Alliance’ between the Vatican and man-made climate fear promoters,” said Marc Morano, publisher of ClimateDepot, quoted in a libertarian online outlet The New American.
Heartland Institute reviews debate: 'Morano brought the facts — relentlessly and firmly. Andress was criminally uninformed for someone in her position. She spent so much time stammering, everyone who is a part of EDF or supports it should be embarrassed.'
