Morano on Fox News Channel - 'Your World w/ Neil Cavuto - September 22, 2014
Selected excerpts: Morano: 'The satellite data shows that we are almost at 18 years with no 'global warming. That means every kid 18 or under at that march has never experienced global warming in their lifetime.
Warmist New York State Assemblyman Brian Kavanagh defended placing global warming as high priority in U.S. by stating: 'We need to be a country that can walk and chew gum at the same time.'
Morano to Kavanagh: 'You keep talking about walking and chewing gum, this is stepping into gum. You have a UN treaty & EPA -- where even if you buy their science - Podesta said EPA regulations would help reduce future storminess. The regulations will not even impact global emissions, let alone temperature, let alone storminess. Don't sell [regulations] as a solution to an urgent problem which they have ginned up. You guys say we face the greatest threat and then you propose symbolism to solve it. Even if you buy the science, what you are proposing makes no sense. Get your feet out of the gum."
Morano on IPCC: 'The UN IPCC scientists are handpicked by governments because they will agree with conclusion. It is pure politics masquerading as science.'
Climate Statistics Professor Dr. Caleb Rossiter of American University: 'Obama has long been delusional on this issue. Anyone who believes we are in a climate catastrophe, I think is deluding themselves.'
Rossiter on his conversion to a climate skeptic: 'You are very isolated on the Democratic Party on the left — one is, I am — for having this conclusion of analysis...I would say since 2004, I’ve been very lonely. I’ve been lonely working on the Hill for the Democratic Party.'
Rossiter on Gore's film: 'I think it’s a wonderful teaching tool because it shows how we don't do science. Gore’s irresponsible.'
On Gore winning the Nobel:'Worst Nobel Prize for peace since Henry Kissinger.'
Rossiter: 'My blood simply boils too hot when I read the blather, daily, about climate catastrophe. It boggles the mind that I could be certain that I know what caused a half degree (C) rise in the last hundred fifty years. It’s simply not large enough to find a physical cause.'
Steven E. Koonin, Undersecretary for Science during Obama's first term, sees "climate science" as a tangle of arrogance, conjecture and dubious methods that cannot withstand the scrutiny of any reasonably sharp mind. His former boss remains an ardent believer
Or does he? Dr Steven E. Koonin (inset) was Undersecretary for Science in the Energy Department during Obama’s first term. Koonin is skeptical about the alarmist case, so much so that he calls for serious independent reviews of the IPCC’s forecasts and methodology, along with a close look at other scientists’ prognostications.
Dr. Glenn A. Marsch is a professor of physics at Grove City College where he teaches physics: 'What if they’re wrong and we’re actually about to embark on a period of global cooling? What if, in fact, the carbon dioxide we’re emitting is truly as potent a greenhouse gas as people say it is; and what if it’s keeping our temperatures relatively safer now and preventing them from plummeting? In that case, trying to eviscerate our economy so that we can’t combat the much greater threat of cooling is one of the worst things we can do. The problem with the precautionary principle is that on the basis of ignorance, it says that we must do something that could be deleterious. Rather than helping, we could be hurting when we can least afford it.'
Curry, the climate 'heretic' who converted from warmist to challenging the 'consensus' speaks at National Press Club in DC: 'The main problem is we are putting the policy cart before the scientific horse'
Curry on Eve of NYC UN Summit: 'Relying on global international treaty to solve the problem -- which I do not think would really solve the problem even if it was implemented -- is politically unviable and economically unviable.'
Curry on CO2 control knob: 'Even on the timescale of decade or two, we could end up be very surprised on how the climate plays out and it might not be getting warmer like the UN IPCC says. We don’t know what's going to happen. All other things being equal – yes -- more carbon dioxide means warmer, but all other things are never equal. We just don’t know. I think we are fooling ourselves to think that CO2 control knob really influences climate on these decadal or even century time scales.'
Curry on intimidation: 'If I were nontenured scientist, I would fear for my job! But I am a senior scientist with retirement in my sight, so I can afford to do what I want, say what I think.'
