Morano: "You would have to frankly be abnormal to believe that symbolic regulations by the U.S. government would impact future extreme storms and or temperature...What is the carbon footprint of electroshock therapy? That is the next thing if they are going to treat 'abnormal' skeptics.'"
NY Times Public Editor: We're "Moving In A Good Direction" On Properly Describing Climate Deniers - Margaret Sullivan Says Times Is Increasingly Using The Term "Denier" And "Perhaps Should Be Doing It Even More"
Daily Caller: “I am embarrassed for the New York Times,” Marc Morano, publisher of the skeptic news site Climate Depot, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Using the term ‘denier’ to describe skeptics is poor journalism, it comes across to the reader as a partisan tactic.” “Using the term ‘denier’ is designed to slur anyone who dissents from the alleged ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming and the term taints the reporting of the Times,” Morano added. “It makes the paper sound like a Greenpeace newsletter, not the paper of record.”
Morano argues that increasing its use of the term “denier” will only drive away more potential readers from the Times. “Ultimately the use of the term ‘denier’ will only lessen the impact of the Times reporting. Readers will smell an agenda whenever they see that term,” Morano said. “Readers of the New York Times will immediately realize that the paper is taking sides and using lowbrow name calling to attempt to discredit those it does not like,” Morano added. “Terms like ‘contrarians’, or ‘doubters’ are much more balanced journalistically than ‘denier’ — which is obviously meant to conjure up the notion that climate skeptics are equivalent to Holocaust deniers.”
“Carbon-based energy development is the best friend for poor people and would give them the best chance at life.” Watch more of our interview with Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot, a website that is skeptical of many warnings about global warming.
Washington Times: “The narrative for Hollywood is that global warming is a growing crisis, and it’s now set to permeate more and more of the pop culture,” said Marc Morano, publisher of the website Climate Depot, which takes a skeptical view of doomsday climate change scenarios. “I’ve noticed that even in TV shows, there have been mentions of global warming.”...
“Because it’s a big issue, you’ll also get the occasional ‘Kingsman’ slipped in there that has a skeptical take on the whole thing,” said Mr. Morano, whose pro-skeptic documentary “Climate Hustle” is slated for release this year.
Mr. Morano said he expects to see more movies stoking alarm over climate change in the next 18 months as the presidential election nears. “Hollywood realizes that if a global warming activist president wins, that means the [Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency] regulations are permanent, that means the U.N. climate treaty is probably going to become permanent in America — two major victories that were achieved by sidestepping the usual democratic process,” Mr. Morano said. “What they’re trying to do is minimize protest by continuing to indoctrinate the public and make everyone concerned about it,” he said.
Climate Depot's Marc Morano: “The Vatican’s partnering with the United Nations climate agenda is nothing short of an unholy alliance. The papal encyclical, no matter how nuanced it may read, will simply be used as a tool to support UN global warming ‘solutions’ that are at odds with most Catholic teachings on issues such as abortion, contraception, overpopulation, and helping the poor nations develop. The Vatican appears to be taking an unprecedented step by seemingly endorsing a specific UN climate treaty.
“Despite the media’s portrayal, this is ultimately not a climate change encyclical, as only 2% of the encyclical deals with climate at all. It is about much more than that, and the irony is that the people who are lauding the pope’s position on climate disagree with just about everything else he stands for. Climate activists who take the time to read the entire encyclical will learn about Catholic teaching on a host of moral issues that they probably have never been willing to listen to before.
“The climate activists are no doubt getting a PR boost from the pope’s entry into the climate debate. But ultimately, the pope’s views on climate science will do little to alter the opinions of Catholics about global warming. As a Catholic, it is my hope that the pope does not take the next step and essentially lobby for a UN climate treaty.”
Morano:'The pope appears to be jumping on the bandwagon just as the evidence to weaken on man-made global warming...On all of these metrics, the case is weakening.
Morano: It's one thing for the Pope to have a scientific view that people can disagree on, but it's completely another thing to time an encyclical and tie it in with a UN global warming treaty. The confusion is going to be Catholic Americans will ask themselves: 'Hey do i have to support a UN political treaty on global warming? If I don't , am I not a good catholic?' It's sowing confusion. But on the other hand, only 2% of this encyclical appears to be on climate. There are lot of other issues in it. The people touting the Pope's view on climate are ignoring all of the other issues, life issues, overpopulation, that the Pope is against. The media loves it because he sounds a lot like Al Gore in this encyclical.'
