Stephanie Hamill of Daily Caller interviews Marc Morano
“AOC's doing the work of climate skeptics for us. Having her out there every day making these wacky claims, questioning whether we should have kids — I can’t think of anything better to discredit the man-made global warming fear movement than AOC,” said Morano.
Morano to Congress: "'Global warming” is merely the latest environmental scare with the same solutions of wealth redistribution and central planning. “Global warming” is merely the latest environmental scare with the same big government solution. The “Green New Deal” has very little to do with the environment or climate.
The environmental Left has been using green scares to push for the same solutions we see today — wealth redistribution, central planning, sovereignty limiting treaties — since the overpopulation scars of the 1960s and 1970s.
2019 Green New Deal proposed “solution”: OCASIO-CORTEZ CAMPAIGN AIDE CALLS ‘GREEN NEW DEAL’ A PLAN TO ‘REDISTRIBUTE WEALTH AND POWER’ FROM RICH TO POOR
The Green New Deal borrows from previous proposed “solutions”: Flashback: UN IPCC official admits UN seeks to ‘redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy’– UN: 'This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore.’
Flashback 1974 proposed “solution” to battle environmental degradation: Different Environmental Scare, Same Solution: Future Obama science czar John Holdren testified to the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee, “The neo-Malthusian view proposes conscious accommodation to the perceived limits to growth via population limitation and redistribution of wealth in order to prevent the ‘overshoot’ phenomenon. My own sympathies are no doubt rather clear by this point. I find myself firmly in the neo-Malthusian camp.” ...
In summary, the Green New Deal has to be opposed, exposed and defeated. We must challenge the economics, ideology and science claims of this deal. I thank the Western Caucus for this opportunity and look forward to them leading the battle."
“The Western caucus hearing tomorrow promises to be the first real scrutiny Congress will be giving on the Green New Deal,” Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot and author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change,” told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Morano is among the handful of Green New Deal opponents planning on testifying at the GOP-led forum. He’s joined by conservative activists and a prominent climatologist skeptical of global warming alarmism. Morano chastised Green New Deal supporters for wanting to engage on a bill they say is necessary to avert catastrophic global warming. “Climate activists and their friends in the media seem to be outraged that any global warming skeptics will be allowed to speak,” Morano said. “If the green New Deal is a serious proposal it should be able to handle critical views.”
Climate Depot’s Marc Morano said it was “about time that the Trump administration is going to push back on the weak scientific claims of the climate-change establishment.” “And they are no weaker than in the area of national security, said Mr. Morano, author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change.” “Let’s hope this new commission and the elevation of Dr. Happer in the administration will herald a new pushback on the increasingly desperate claims of ‘settled’ science.”
CNBC: "The Republican-dominated Congressional Western Caucus is hosting a forum on the Green New Deal on Wednesday. The confirmed guests are mostly prominent climate-change deniers and industry-linked groups...
The witnesses include prominent climate-change skeptics, such as Myron Ebell, who led the EPA's transition team for then President-elect Donald Trump; Marc Morano, the founder of Climate Depot, a blog dedicated to challenging climate science; and Dr. David Legates, a professor of climatology at the University of Delaware who regularly speaks at gatherings of climate deniers."

Morano: "Beyonce, Jay Z, Katie Perry -- and Bernie. What do they all have in common? The Hillary Clinton campaign all paid them to fly around in private jets. Bernie Sanders has made his career out of calling for keeping fossil fuels in the ground. The problem is he can't keep from using fossil fuels lavishly -- in the air!
This is rank hypocrisy on the level that only Al Gore could compete. Outside of Al Gore, in electoral politics, Bernie was the guy as the number one 'climate guru' ... and he just can't keep himself out of these private jets. They're eating themselves here. You rarely ever see climate activists on the left pointing fingers and going after each other for hypocrisy. Usually it's climate skeptics and others pointing out the hypocrisy. It is a rare moment."

Conservatives skeptical of climate change say Happer’s rise is a reason to rejoice -- and an indication the Trump administration is getting serious about challenging the scientific consensus that the phenomenon is driven by greenhouse gas emissions tied to burning fossil fuels for energy. “It’s about time,” said Marc Morano, a former Republican staffer for the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee who runs the ClimateDepot.com website. “This is a major, major development. The biggest failing of this administration has been that they have not challenged the science.” ...
Happer’s outspoken assertions about climate change have won him a following among skeptics. “He’s a fighter,” said Steve Milloy, a policy adviser for the Heartland Institute, a group critical of climate science. “I look at him as a star.” He’s a really brave guy, because being a climate skeptic is a challenging thing,” Milloy said. “He believes deeply that carbon dioxide is good for the planet,” Milloy said, crediting Happer with having “the guts to speak up.”
