Marc Morano, a former Republican political aide who distributes a newsletter questioning climate science, said that for years, non-scientists like Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio were given generous media time and demanded climate action from the government.
"Now that we have a president who is a climate skeptic, suddenly the left only believes that scientists who agree with the U.N.'s climate views are qualified to speak about global warming," Morano said.
Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot and Author of new 2018 book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change. & Former Senior Staff of the U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee: "I have often joked that I am not a scientist, but I often play one on TV. But the idea that non-scientists can't discuss and have views on climate change is contrary to everything the climate activists have pushed for years. The idea of a "97% consensus" was pushed so that non-scientists who support climate regulations could claim that the "science was settled' and there was "no more debate" on the topic. For decades, non-scientists like Al Gore, Bill Maher, President Obama, Tom Steyer and Leonardo DiCaprio were given generous media time to push the "settled" climate science claims and demand climate "action" from the government. Now that we have a President who is a climate skeptic and who is dismantling the Left's climate agenda, suddenly the Left only believes that scientists who agree with the UN's climate views are qualified to speak about global warming."
UN Report: "There is a tendency for citizens to question problems if policy solutions challenge their world views." The assessment of human psychology, unusual for the otherwise traditional, policy-heavy report, comes five days before negotiators and envoys head to Poland to negotiate the finer details of implementing the 2015 Paris accord. The message is stark: In order to hit the agreement’s most ambitious goal, 1.5 degrees Celsius, national targets must be made five times more ambitious than those initially pledged.
