Warmist Eric Holthaus: "A new study confirms that global warming has triggered an irreversible collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, which will alone raise global sea levels by 10 feet. It's still up to us to decide if that ice takes 500 years to melt, or 50. We are in a climate emergency."
Warmist Stefan Rahmstorf: "The West Antarctic Ice Sheet is melting and has probably passed the tipping point to its complete demise, causing a long-term sea-level rise of 3 meters. But is that our fault?"
Unlike Holthaus, the mainstream media published stories that merely exaggerated the paper’s findings from science into revelation.
Fellow Skeptic Steven Hayward of the Powerline Blog wrote: "Marc Morano is number one" and added: “Morano is truly the Pete Rose and Hank Aaron of climate contrarians."
Warmist Randy Olson commented on the study: "Does climate community realize Marc Morano is most prolific voice of skepticism by a looooong way? He has 35% more articles than any others. There should be an Institute for the Study of Morano."
Olson added: "In 2007, I had climate “contrarian” Marc Morano in my movie "Sizzle", In 2010, I warned of his media savvy, today he is a Fox News regular & most prolific skeptic in this new article."
CFACT's Craig Rucker: "While the study’s goal is severely off base, it nonetheless produced two mathematical rankings CFACT is more than a little tickled by. According to a ranking of how often “contrarians,” as the study labels us, are cited in the media, CFACT’s Marc Morano is far and away the world’s most effective climate communicator."
The journal Nature Communications study: "Prominent climate change contrarians (CCCs) and scientists (CCSs) in the media...In the new research, Petersen and colleagues looked at 386 prominent climate deniers and 386 climate scientists. They looked at 200,000 scientific journals and 100,000 media articles—from both traditional and new formats.
CFACT excerpt: Marc Morano is number one, with 4,171 media references, nearly double Senator James Inhofe’s 2,628 and Secretary Rick Perry’s 1,903. Marc appeared in many multiples of media references compared to anyone else as you proceed down the rankings.
"Al Gore is standing to rake in millions from a World Resources Institute meat consumption reduction report, a report that will certainly help boost profits for the meat substitute manufacturers – in which Gore just happens to be a big stakeholder...Al Gore, partner and advisor to Kleiner Perkins, Beyond Meat’s big investor, stands to haul in millions, should governments move to restrict real meat consumption and force citizens to consume the dubious substitutes and fakes."
And now, the UN is trying to morph into a global food police as they try and expand their regulatory power to include food production!
Morano: "This is nothing more than regulatory lifestyle controls by the UN. They are empowering themselves with this report...This is an open call by the United Nations for activist policies in taxes and regulation. And we have seen activists come out with ideas like the meat patch, like a nicotine patch, which would induce allergies to people so they won’t eat meat. It’s getting whackier and whackier."
"What's interesting is back in the 1970s, they predicted a food catastrophe based on the global cooling scare."
