Passage from each book...the section covering the “Climategate” scandal (in which hacked emails showed the scientists involved massaged data to prove global warming was occurring) that was broken by Marc Morano on his ClimateDepot.com website.
"The Climategate story broke just before the president headed to Copenhagen, there to pledge major cuts in the U.S. carbon emissions and to persuade other nations to follow suit. Nothing the major media said could undo the reporting done by citizen journalists such as [James] Delingpole and Morano. Armed only with the truth and their frequently crashing websites, they reversed whatever climate momentum the Obama administration had seized."
Former President Barack Obama: "We've seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic. We can't afford any more consequences of climate denial. All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall."
"Unless coronavirus is quickly contained, another casualty will be much-needed climate action in 2020." - KELLY SIMS GALLAGHER - Former Obama administration senior policy adviser in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy & senior China adviser in the Special Envoy for Climate Change office at the U.S. State Department.
Harvard Mag: These are all important questions—but even they ignore a central certainty that no one appears to be addressing: what Dan Schrag calls “climate change’s dirty little secret.” “Even if we could become carbon-neutral tomorrow,” says the director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment, “the climate will keep changing for thousands of years, the ice sheets will keep melting, and the seas will continue to rise.”
Climate Depot's Marc Morano: "So now an allegedly esteemed Harvard professor admits that controlling the climate is futile. Are we supposed to be surprised at this 'secret' that climate skeptics have always known? Even the climate activists will now have to concede that the climate will not stop changing if we refuse to enact the UN Paris pact and the Green New Deal."
Philip Stott, professor emeritus of Biogeography at the University of London, points out that “climate change is governed by hundreds of factors, or variables, and the very idea that we can manage climate change predictably by understanding and manipulating at the margins one politically-selected factor [CO2], is as misguided as it gets. It's scientific nonsense."
