Morano on marchs' treatment of skeptics: It reached absurd levels when I went to get coffee at the hospitality table, everyone greeted me cheerily, but then a man came up and said “You know he is a climate denier.” The mood of the volunteers changed immediately after I was "outed." [“I've been "outed! I wasn't even "in"! “Not that there is anything wrong with that.” - Seinfeld TV episode]Just as I was reaching for the creamer, a lady picked up the box of creamers and recoiled back so that I could not have it for my coffee. It appeared for a moment that the People’s Climate March was going to take a stand and deny a “climate denier” cream for his coffee and refuse me service. I responded: “You are really going to deny me coffee creamer” because I am a skeptic? She then relented and allowed me two creams for my large coffee. Incident avoided, coffee enjoyed.
The banner, reading “The Science is NOT Settled.” was under constant assault with marchers who refused to allow the message of climate skepticism to be seen. Many marchers either blocked the sign, harassed the people holding or ran into it with their bodies, all in an attempt to silence any skeptical message. Many marchers grabbed the banner and tried to take it down to the ground and physically stood in front of it to prevent anyone from reading the message...At one point one of the marchers challenged the driver of the truck to fist fight. Other marchers repeatedly gave the middle finger to the banners.
Update: 8:30 AM EST: March for Silence?! The People's Climate March has officially rejected issuing press credentials to our producer despite us being pre-registered for media passes and meeting all requirements. March organizers informed us that we were "not a credible" news outlet and were therefore being denied media credentials which would have granted us access to speaker and VIP areas of the march. Prior to being told we were rejected, the organizers had given no indication that there was any kind of issue. After submitting our registration for media passes, we received regular media updates throughout the week. Developing...

The truck featured two giant banners refuting man-made climate change claims. CFACT pre-registered and paid for the parking spot at the lot, but when the truck arrived at the parking lot the truck was turned away.

Morano: "What is unique about President Trump is that -- unlike a President Romney would have done, or unlike a President McCain would have done -- unlike a President George W. Bush did -- unlike a President George H.W. Bush did -- unlike a President Dole would have done -- and I am giving you all the names of GOP nominees and presidents -- none of them would have come close to what President Trump has done in the first two months been in office. He is standing up to the media. Calling the news 'fake news' to their face. No other Republican would have done that. I dare say Ronald Reagan would not have gone that far."
DC Climate Skeptic Summit: One booth at the conference promoted "Climate Hustle," the 90-minute film from Marc Morano that aims to expose the "global warming shakedown." The person promoting DVDs wore a name tag reading, "Hello, my name is Al Gore."
Weather Channel Founder John Coleman Predicts Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Sequel’, Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, Will Be Another ‘Scientific Monstrosity’
Coleman: 'Thousands of scientists have debunked the horrid science fiction in his first film, ‘An Inconvenient Truth.' Gore keeps making billions and mis-educating millions and the media keeps spreading wild science-fiction claims on a daily basis.
Geologist Dr. Robert Giegengack, chaired the Department of Earth and Environmental Science at the University of Pennsylvania: "I voted for Gore in 2000, yeah. I think that if he ran again, depending on who he ran against, I might vote for him. He’s a smart man."
But after viewing Gore’s film, Giegengack had this reaction. "I was appalled. I was appalled because he…either deliberately misrepresented the point he was making or didn’t understand it. So it was irresponsible of Al Gore."
