"Alarming students and the public about the impact of climate hazards, such as droughts and extreme events, can be counter-productive and cause people to ignore the warnings or succumb to denial."
Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot and producer of upcoming documentary 'Climate Hustle,' tells MRCTV the guide is making it sound like disagreement on climate change is a disease: 'Does our government now think that the greatest threat kids face is 'succumbing" to climate 'denial?!' They make it sound as bad as succumbing to Ebola. Parents need to be very vigilant when it comes to their children's education about man-made global warming.'
New Warmist film: 'But the star of this show is the astonishingly charming rogue Marc Morano, a frequent cable-television guest who admits,' I’m not a scientist, but I do play one on TV.' Morano, the founder of ClimateDepot.com, not only spouts his nefarious nonsense about science everywhere he goes but is also in the business of ensuring the mau-mauing of genuine scientific researchers who have felt a responsibility to go public with the dangers we face. “We went after James Hansen and Michael Oppenheimer and had a lot of fun with it…we mocked and ridiculed,” Morano brags.'

Q:What was your favorite moment from filming?
Kenner: 'I enjoyed working with one of the deniers Marc Morano who was a very interesting character. Very smart guy on some levels and very honest guy was telling me what he was thinking and I was thinking it was fascinating to have that experience and to be with him.'
CBS News: 'Also interviewed is Marc Morano, a former producer for Rush Limbaugh and staffer for James Inhofe (a major climate change denier in the Senate), who specializes in spin. He proudly tells Kenner about his role in "creating chaos" through on-air debates with actual scientists; and he shows no remorse for the public attacks he launched against NOAA scientist James Hansen, who was among the first to warn of the dangers of CO2 pollution to irreversibly affect the Earth's climate. Morano laughs off having sent or encouraged threats of violence to Hansen, saying he's entertained by reading the threats he receives.'
Climate Depot's Morano: 'As the global temperature standstill hits 18 years beyond what the models predicted the climate activists are left with more than 50 excuses to explain why temperatures are not rising. The ‘pause’ reveals that it is scientifically obvious that carbon dioxide is not the overriding driver of the climate. The global warming movement has morphed into a coalition of ‘climate cause deniers.’ They deny the hundreds of causes and variables of climate change and pretend CO2 is the ‘control knob’ overriding all the others.'
Blaming drought for ISIS creation: 'In 1933 the Muslim government of Syria banned Yo-Yos why because they thought they contributed to the drought in Syria. Banning Yo-Yos to prevent drought is as scientifically valid as blaming global warming for creating ISIS.
Morano: Warmists 'assume that before global warming and drought, the Middle East was a peaceful place.'
Morano on climate astrology: "After an event happens, the warmists will say 'well that makes sense', but they never predict it ahead of time. There is no way to falsify the theory. Every weather event fits the theory. so it ceases to become science when no matter what happens they say 'yeah, that is consistent.'"
Monckton: 'The possibility that the Pause is occurring because the computer models are simply wrong about the sensitivity of temperature to manmade greenhouse gases can no longer be dismissed.'
'The Great Pause is the longest continuous period without any warming in the global instrumental temperature record since the satellites first watched in 1979. It has endured for a little over half the satellite temperature record. Yet the Pause coincides with a continuing, rapid increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration.'
'The spike in temperatures caused by the Great El Niño of 1998 is largely offset in the linear-trend calculation by two factors: the spike of the 2010 el Niño, and the sheer length of the Great Pause itself.'
