Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore explains the species scare: “Since species extinction became a broad social concern, coinciding with the extinction of the passenger pigeon, we have done a pretty good job of preventing species extinctions."
Moore bluntly mocked species extinction claims made by biologist Edward O. Wilson from Harvard University. Wilson estimated that up to 50,000 species go extinct every year based on computer models of the number of potential but as yet undiscovered species in the world. Moore: “There’s no scientific basis for saying that 50,000 species are going extinct. The only place you can find them is in Edward O. Wilson’s computer at Harvard University. They’re actually electrons on a hard drive. I want a list of Latin names of actual species.”
UK scientist Professor Philip Stott, emeritus professor of Biogeography at the University of London: “The earth has gone through many periods of major extinctions, some much bigger in size than even being contemplated today...Change is necessary to keep up with change in nature itself. In other words, change is the essence. And the idea that we can keep all species that now exist would be anti-evolutionary, anti-nature and anti the very nature of the earth in which we live."
The climate change panel is being developed within the National Security Council by one Dr. William Happer, a 79-year-old physicist by trade with a skeptical attitude toward manmade climate change. The purpose and direction of the climate panel could go two ways: it could objectively look at the science of climate change to assess the threat of global warming to national security, or it can function as a sort of antagonistic rebuttal machine to take on the findings of government studies that demonstrate climate change as a serious threat.
The latter is what many believe to be true about the direction of Happer’s panel.
AOC "seemed to recognize that Rossiter’s presence, and incendiary claims, had become central to a hearing that was not supposed to be about coal."
Climate Statistician Dr. Caleb Rossiter to AOC Committee: "We are trying to save the people of the planet from the people 'saving the planet.'"
Rossiter to Congress: "Extreme weather events such as cyclones, floods, droughts and tornadoes are not increasing in incidence or lives lost. Indeed, the global mortality from all weather-related natural disasters declined by 99 percent while the population trebled after 1920, thanks to improved economies and technologies. Food production and calorie consumption per capita continue to increase, thanks to the green revolution, increased CO2 fertilization and longer growing seasons. Fossil fuels contribute enormously to the production, safe storage and transport of food and thus to human nutrition."
Update! AOC insults Rossiter!Slams as "a guy w/ a polka dot bowtie backed by oil lobbyists arguing that fossil fuels are' healthy.' HEALTHY. It’s embarrassing." - AOC: " One of the things that genuinely surprised me in Congress is the sheer mediocrity of witnesses called forth by the GOP in hearings. Yesterday they brought in a guy w/ a polka dot bowtie backed by oil lobbyists arguing that fossil fuels are “healthy.” HEALTHY. It’s embarrassing."
Newsweek slams 'a smiling Morano' for rejecting claims that CO2 is a "pollution." But scientists, even UN IPCC scientists agree with Morano. Morano responds to media attack.
Newsweek caption: "First of all, pollution and carbon dioxide, humans, we inhale oxygen and we exhale carbon dioxide, so he's calling CO2 pollution, which it's not," a smiley Morano proclaimed Tuesday.SCREENSHOT: FOX NEWS
Marc Morano, former communications director for the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, editor of Climate Depot, and author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change,” will keynote the banquet in the evening...Saturday’s conference will attract scientists from around the nation, including Tom Wysmuller, a founding member of NASA retiree-founded group The Right Climate Stuff, and Don Easterbrook, professor emeritus of geology at Western Washington University.
Morano told the Dori Monson Show that climate change has little to do with science, and is really about pushing for certain political policies. Morano said, in Al Gore’s 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth,” the coming demise of polar bears due to climate change featured as a major theme. However, this was not repeated in Gore’s 2017 sequel “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.” “Gore has egg on his face … polar bears are at or near historic population highs — there have never been this many polar bears they’ve ever counted,” Morano said. “So Al Gore dropped them like a hot potato.”
Morano said, fossil fuels have allowed us to live easier, healthier, and more luxurious lives than our ancestors. “You don’t need servants to get your water, you don’t need servants to heat your water. You can have a vacuum cleaner, you don’t need a staff to clean up your room. You can get food delivered, you can store food,” he said. “Everything now is technologically advanced and … it’s all via the fossil fuel revolution that now, even the poorest of Americans can live like royalty of a few centuries ago. That’s called technological advancement.”
Morano: "The models are tuned to show that humans are the cause, and they admit the models don't account for things in nature,” he says. “And models are not evidence. Models are not proof. They are tuned by the programmer to get the result they want.”
