Newsweek Mag.: Robert Kenner, director of "Merchants of Doubt': 'The movie Thank You for Smoking was a bit of an inspiration. The other inspiration was Marc Morano, who is really funny, really quick. At the same time, I think when Marc Morano attacks scientists, there’s a cost to the scientists’ lives and to their research, so I wanted to point that out.' ...
Kenner: 'I really get offended when people on the left say, “Oh, these people are so stupid.” They’re not stupid. They’re really smart. Tim Phillips [president of Americans for Prosperity, the conservative political action committee] is really smart. He’s able to go out there and deliver this message, and he makes money for the Kochs. Marc Morano [climate change skeptic and frequent Fox News interviewee] said, “Our job is simple. All we have to do is stop action.” I think he’s very funny, he’s very smart. And I wish he was backing other things.'
'The Associated Press is recycling more than century old Antarctica ice sheet melt and sea level rise fears. Reporter Seth Borenstein is not the first one to hype these same Antarctica melt fears. Virtually the exact same claims and hype were reported in 2014, 1990, 1979, 1922 and 1901!
Marc Morano: 'If Pachauri had any decency, he would have resigned in the wake of the Climategate scandal which broke in 2009. Climategate implicated the upper echelon of UN IPCC scientists in attempting to collude and craft a narrative on global warming while allowing no dissent. Or Pachauri could have resigned when he wished skeptics would rub asbestos on their faces or conceded that the IPCC was at the 'beck and call' of governments. There were so many opportunities to to the right thing and fade away. But it took the proceedings of the Indian court system over the allegations of sexual harassment to finally bring Pachauri down. Things can only be looking up for the UN IPCC now that it has ridded itself of this political and ethical cancer.'
Marc Morano in warmist film: 'I am not a scientist, although I do occasionally play one on TV -- Ok -- Hell, more than occasionally.' - 'We (skeptics) the negative force, we are just trying to stop stuff.' (In theatres March 6, 2015)
Morano, a former U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee staff member, calls the report “shameless activism shown by our federal scientists” and denounced NOAA’s findings as “statistically meaningless.”
“The feds are conning the public on 2014 being the ‘hottest year,’” Morano countered in a statement. “We now know that both NASA and NOAA knew their ‘hottest year’ claims would not hold up to scientific scrutiny. But both agencies chose instead to loudly push the global warming narrative to a willing and compliant news media.”
Climate Depot Responds: 'Blizzard blamed on global warming?! Is there any weather event that is inconsistent with global warming? — This is now akin to the predictions of Nostradamus or the Mayan calendar. There is no way anyone can falsify the global warming theory now because any weather event that happens proves’ their case.'
