Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot, says he does not believe MSNBC’s claim many of the Republican candidates are changing their views on climate change is accurate.
“Let’s start with Trump,” Morano said. “He has not backed away from anything. He made some really silly comments about climate, about how China started it and mocking AGW when it snows, and now [he] sounds perfectly nuanced and sound on the issue.”
“I don’t see a shift in Trump,” Morano said.
“Rubio has been a deer in the headlights when it comes to climate change … He makes a reasonable skeptical statement and then seems to back away,” Morano said.
Morano says Cruz has always been the strongest critic of climate alarmism.
“Cruz is the most well-versed and the strongest candidate who understands global warming issues,” Morano said.
“So the Republican presidential candidates have not really softened their skepticism on global warming,” Morano said. “This is a warmist-mainstream media created narrative [that is] not backed up by facts.”
Marco Rubio: "I say, ‘OK, if we pass this bill how many feet of sea rise will it prevent?’ Well, it won’t prevent any sea rise. ‘OK, well how many degrees of temperature will it avoid going up?’ Well, it won’t do that either."
'Morano says climate has never been a huge issue for either of the Clintons, or for President Obama when Mrs. Clinton was his secretary of state. But according to Moreno, things changed when John Kerry took the Cabinet spot.' As secretary of state, she did nothing compared to what John Kerry is doing," he tells OneNewsNow. "[He] has turned secretary of state into the 'Secretary of Climate.'
WWF International: "Transformative change is urgently needed in our productive sectors, including our food systems, forestry, fisheries, infrastructure and extractives, and in the finance sector. These transformations need to happen fast if we are to limit risks of higher restoration costs and irreversible damage, including new pandemics and species extinction. We must transform our food systems so that enough healthy and nutritious food is produced for all, within planetary boundaries."
Since the 1980s, 29% of human CO2 emissions were cancelled out by the CO2-induced greening of the Earth. The post-2000 vegetative greening expansion has been so massive (5.4 million km²) its net areal increase is equivalent to a region the size of the Amazon rainforest.
