Al Gore: Climate skeptics are "according to the best available evidence, deceiving the american people, communicating in a fraudulent way - about the reality of the climate crisis and the dangers that it poses to all of us and committing fraud in their comunciations about the viability of renewable energy and efficiency and energy storage."
"In the opinion of many who have looked at this pattern of misbehavior and what certainly looks like fraud, they are violating the law."
NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman: 'Everyone from President Obama on down is under relentless assualt from well-funded, highly aggressive and morally vacant forces that are trying to block every step by the federal governemnt to stop meaningful action.'
Lomborg: 'The number of strong to violent tornados has been declining since we started measuring in 1954. The UN doesn't even want to say which way the future could go: 'There is low confidence in projections of small-scale phenomena such as tornadoes because competing physical processes may affect future trends and because climate models do not simulate such phenomena.' Yet, Gore is really only interested in saying climate change is making tornadoes stronger, and apparently he is annoyed that science won't let him do that...I understand that it would be politically expedient to be able to link tornadoes and climate, but surely it is more important for politics to get the link right? And as of now, there seems to be fewer, not more, strong tornadoes.'
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said at the Good Jobs, Green Jobs conference in Washington, D.C., Tuesday, 'It's our task to make sure that climate change lines up right behind immigration and gay rights as an issue where the Republicans see that if they stick with this, they’re going to run off the cliff like lemmings.'
Climate Depot’s Marc Morano said in response to Whitehouse’s statements:
'This is a bad tactical maneuver on the global warming activist's part. Now the warmists are basically saying you have to support illegal immigration and gay marriage in order to believe in man-made global warming fears. Instead of reaching out to get more people to believe in global warming, Sen. Whitehouse is just preaching to his left wing choir.
Global warming activists have learned nothing from their PR disaster of having a highly partisan figure like Al Gore be the face of their movement and the scandal ridden and distrusted UN as the source of their science. The global warming movement continues to make it too easy for skeptics to battle.
The ultimate aim of Sen. Whitehouse may not to be to convert Republicans on this issue, but to make skepticism of man-made global warming an unelectable issue. He has a huge uphill battle.'
Dr. Jacquelyn Gill: "The root causes of climate change are capitalism, white supremacy, and colonialism, all of which put profits over people and treat people and the environment as disposable commodities. Blaming folks like service workers, retail workers, and others is not a good look."
Dr. Happer and Dr. Lindzen summarize: “Misrepresentation, exaggeration, cherry picking or outright lying pretty much covers all the so-called evidence marshalled in support of the theory of imminent catastrophic global warming caused by fossil fuels and CO2.”
