TV debate between hydrologist Fernando Miralles-Wilhelm of the University of Maryland and Climate Depot's Marc Morano
Prof. Fernando Miralles-Wilhelm: "I have two daughters who are or very engaged and I just I mean I'm still, to be honest, I'm still grappling with how I deal with this...I don't think we're conveying the positive side of that equation to the younger generations and that worries me as a parent and as a citizen...I don't think people like Al Gore are the best spokespersons for the climate. Neither is Greta."
Marc Morano: "It's really refreshing. I'm happy that you hear the professor here say that. Because many of his colleagues -- people like Michael Mann the Penn State, a UN top scientist -- just signed a letter urging his colleges across America to declare a climate emergency on campuses. He's the University of Maryland...We need more scientists like Miralles-Wilhelm because he's the voice of reason against these other ones who are egging these kids on and it's just it's such a gross disservice to children, robbing them of their innocence in childhood."
Marc Morano, author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change,” said that situations like Ms. Crockford’s have become “all too common in the climate debate,” citing examples of prominent scientists who only “came out” as skeptics after retiring.
“Professor after professor has been hounded, silenced, censured or fired for speaking out against the approved man-made climate crisis narrative,” Mr. Morano said. “The message to any climate dissenters in academia is once again reinforced: Stay silent with your skepticism or risk endangering your career.”
Climate Depot’s Marc Morano disagreed, arguing that climate change “cannot be blamed for California’s electricity woes, despite claims to the contrary.”
“The main culprit in California’s new blackout economy is mismanagement of water, forests and electrical lines,” he said. “If California had been more proactive in scaling back tree and brush growth near electrical lines, mass-scale electrical blackouts would not be necessary.”
Sankei Shimbun: "We recommend you take this book because it is easy to read. You’ll be amazed at each chapter. It is full of scientific controversies and scandals over global warming that are not well understood in Japan.”
No consensus: The Sankei Shimbun concludes that Mr. Morano’s book provides “an overall picture of the global warming issue” and that it is an issue which “can be viewed from multiple perspectives.”
Recently Morano’s book has climbed near the top of the charts for books under Environment.

Morano: "It is sad. They had a die-in for the kids, Greta Thunberg, went to the White House. They had kids lying down at the White House Gates 11 minutes to symbolize 11 years the planet is death. Unless government saves it to legislate storms and weather. That is really dark day for the movement when they turn to kids like this as human shields."
Morano: "If you really want to protest climate, do something challenging. Why would you skip school? That’s an easy thing for kid to do. Give up social media for a couple days. Give up your iPhone and tablet. See how long they go without social media that would be a protest that would be worthy.”
