Climate skeptic Marc Morano discusses the Trump administration's 'global warming' policy and the alleged 'scientists' march on DC. Air date: January 30, 2017. 'Tipping Point' with Liz Wheeler.
Morano: 'NASA scientists are activists scientists in charge of our federal temp data.'
NASA is 'juicing the system, they are running a campaign cause and they are leaving out this vital information that there statistics are essentially meaningless. The hottest year declaration is meaningless.'
Forecast for Sea Level Rise By 2100 Scaled Back from 6 feet to 4 feet
NYT: 'One of the authors of the new paper, Dr. Rahmstorf, had previously published estimates suggesting the sea could rise as much as five or six feet by 2100. But with the improved calculations from the new paper, his latest upper estimate is three to four feet.'
NYT: 'Scientists say the recent climate agreement negotiated in Paris is not remotely ambitious enough to forestall a significant melting of Greenland and Antarctica, though if fully implemented, it may slow the pace somewhat.'
Gillis: 'Journalists care about the truth—that’s my only care in life, to find the truth. To act as if the evidence is half and half is to tell a lie. I refuse to perpetuate that lie.'
His own preference was to describe the “deniers” as “people who oppose climate science.”
Gillis acknowledged a tacit pact among print journalists to stop giving credence to climate skeptics. He called this an “enlightenment” that began ten or 15 years ago. American television, he noted, still lets a few skeptics onto the air; broadcasters have yet to come out of the Dark Ages.
Gillis responded: “99.9 percent of climate science is funded by the government.” That means, he explained, that each grant is disclosed by number to the public, making every transaction transparent and trustworthy.
Emily Southerd, campaign manager for the advocacy group Forecast the Facts shared that her organization is petitioning news stations to quit booking “deniers” like Marc Morano of ClimateDepot.com, one of the “merchants” shown in the film.
