Marc Morano, who runs the popular climate website Climate Depot, told the Washington Times that "the state officials' legal campaign against the oil-and-gas industry would have a chilling effect on free speech and scientific dissent." Morano noted that "Gore joined with attention-seeking attorneys general to essentially try to shut down any 'global warming' views that differ from the United Nations' or Gore's," said Morano in an email. "Agree or face investigations is the new normal for the climate debate." Morano, who co-wrote and stars in the documentary Climate Hustle that is being released for a one-day theatrical event May 2, says Al Gore is "frustrated that his message is still not resonating 10 years after his movie came out." Morano goes on to say that Gore "apparently has decided that anyone who disagrees with him on ‘global warming’ should face investigations, fines and penalties and be silenced."
