People try to shut Morano up. When he tried to speak at Georgetown University to question climate change narratives, students honked horns to drown him out. “They can’t handle dissent,” Morano tells me. He blames that on indoctrination that starts in grammar school. “It’s an indoctrination that’s so complete that by the time they get to high school, they’re not even aware that there’s any scientific dissent,” he says.
Morano has a new movie, “Climate Hustle 2,” that includes important facts that we all should hear. It includes Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer saying, “If we would do more on climate change, we’d have fewer of these hurricanes.” That’s simply not true, as Morano points out in his movie, citing congressional testimony.
In the video above, Morano takes on more climate myths — from tornados to sea levels. And I push back on his movie’s claim that “stopping climate change is not about saving the planet … it’s about climate elites trying to convince us to accept a future where they call all the shots.”
Stossel Excerpt: When Marc Morano says it, activists try to prevent him from speaking.
“They do not want dissent,” says Morano, founder of ClimateDepot.com, a website that rebuts much of what climate activists teach in schools.
“It’s an indoctrination that’s so complete that by the time (kids) get to high school, they’re not even aware that there’s any scientific dissent.”
Morano’s new movie, “Climate Hustle 2,” presents that dissent. My new video this week features his movie.
Morano argues that politicians use fear of global warming in order to gain power.
“Climate Hustle 2” features Senator Chuck Schumer shouting: “If we would do more on climate change, we’d have fewer of these hurricanes and other types of storms! Everyone knows that!”
But everyone doesn’t know that. Many scientists refute it. Congress’ own hearings include testimony about how our warmer climate has not caused increases in the number of hurricanes or tornadoes. “Climate Hustle 2” includes many examples like that.Stossel: Climate activists “call Morano evil personified, a climate denier.
“Why should we believe you?” I ask Morano. “You’re getting money from the fossil fuel industry.” After all, Daily Kos calls him “Evil Personified” and says ExxonMobil funds him.
“Not at all,” he replies. “I’m paid by about 90% individual contributions from around the country. Why would ExxonMobil give me money (when) they want to appear green?”
Morano’s movie frustrates climate activists by pointing out how hypocritical some are.
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio says he lives a “green lifestyle… (using) energy-efficient appliances. I drive a hybrid car.”
Then he flies to Europe to attend a party.
I like watching Morano point out celebrities’ hypocrisy, but think one claim in his movie goes too far.
“Stopping climate change is not about saving the planet,” says narrator Kevin Sorbo. “It’s about climate elites trying to convince us to accept a future where they call all the shots.”
I push back at Morano: “I think they are genuinely concerned, and they want to save us.”
“Their vision of saving us is putting them in charge,” he replies.
And if they’re in charge, he says, they will destroy capitalism.
