Anderson: 'Continuing with economic growth over the coming two decades is incompatible with meeting our international obligations on climate change' - Put simply, for the wealthier nations, 'the necessary levels of 2°C mitigation and short-to-medium term economic growth are incompatible'
'Morano had sharp words today for Philippines lead negotiator Yeb Sano, who has pledged not to eat until the conference yields a "meaningful agreement" that might shield other countries from natural disasters like Typhoon Haiyan. 'There's a level of deep exploitation going on, and the U.N. is allowing this and media is feeding this, as if a U.N. treaty is going to prevent future super typhoons from hitting," Morano said to an unappreciative audience...Morano, a former aide to Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), compared the belief that policy can change the weather to'medieval witchcraft.' 'This is supposed to be the modern age,' he said.
Morano: 'Coal is the moral choice, particularly for the developing world,' said Morano in the CFACT Warsaw press conference - a comment greeted with laughter from many in the room. Conference hosts Poland have been criticized for simultaneously hosting a World Coal Association conference elsewhere in Warsaw. 'The model for the world right now should be Australia,' Morano said. 'Australia gets it. Scientifically they get it, politically they get it and particularly when it comes to the United Nations, they get it. They are pulling out of this, they are repealing their carbon tax and Canada seems to be intrigued by what Australia is doing.' '"Australia gets it - they have realized what the United Nations is doing here today. Viva Australia - let's hope the world follows Australia's model,; said Morano, who is a former advisor to Republican Senator James Inhofe, who has said global warming is a scientific 'hoax.'
Apollo 7 astronaut Walter Cunningham: 'Skeptics like us are challenged to disprove their hypothesis,' Cunningham said. 'Scientists are best qualified to deal with the scientific questions but we all have to deal with the financial consequences of any actions taken on bad science.' - 'In the 1980s a small group of individuals became concerned about the Earth's temperature and what it might do in the future. I hesitate to call them scientists because they have abandoned their scientific principals by which their guess about temperature increases and the cause could achieve scientific acceptance or rejection.'#In questions [to Morano & Cunningham at UN press conference], one representative from the UK Youth Climate Coalition said: 'I'm going to call bullshit on everything that you have just said. You guys are the ones being naive and you guys are the ones ignoring the science. I don't even know what to ask. I think my question would just be... how do you sleep at night?'
'Marc Morano at Climate Depot has reported on an analysis by climate blogger Steve Goddard of the historical record, which found that the worst cyclones or typhoons occurred before any significant addition to CO2 levels by industrialization.'
