Media Matters outraged: Skeptics "[Marc] Morano and [Dr. Patrick] Moore also got more time at the hearing than the four scientists invited by the Democrats, according to Public Citizen."
"Morano and Moore made a mockery of the House hearing, and that’s exactly what Republicans wanted."
Warmists demand to know: "How did these two dominate a hearing run by Democrats?"
"Fox News has helped to put Morano and Moore in the public eye by giving them a platform to sow doubt about climate change and other serious environmental issues, and now the two men’s latest Fox-worthy rants are part of the congressional record."
"So far in 2019, Morano has appeared on Fox News shows at least 10 times...Morano has also appeared three times this year on President Donald Trump's favorite show, Fox & Friends."
Climate Skeptic Steve Milloy Cheers: "Thanks for having a hearing that allowed climate skeptics, Patrick Moore and Marc Morano, to totally outclass your climate bedwetters. Now you know what bedwetters generally avoid sharing a stage with skeptics."
Rep. Tom McClintock with Marc Morano & Patrick Moore at hearing
Rep. McClintock: "Do not despair. As Ronald Bailey, science correspondent for Reason Magazine writes: “Many of the transformative changes advocated by the IPBES are already happening as a result of the economic growth the UN agency wants us to steer away from. Due to increasing wealth, education and urbanization, world population will peak later this century around 8 to 9 billion.” He goes on to point out that growing prosperity and technology is resulting in increasingly more efficient resource use and growing income and gender equality."
"While I have read Morano’s recent book The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change (I recommend this book), I was unaware that Morano had been following the species extinction issue so closely. Witnesses selected by the minority party (at present the Republicans), typically have a week at best to prepare written testimony. So it is clear that Morano’s materials must have been collected and examined over a period of time."
"It is very difficult to rebut Morano’s points without the full Report and its documentation."
"Morano was asked a question about ‘97% of scientists agree.’ Morano nailed it. Moore effectively chimed in on this issue also...The Chairman in his 5 minutes is attacking Morano and the Republicans for inviting him. Also criticizing ‘junior varsity think tanks.'"
Moore: As with the manufactured “climate crisis” they are using the specter of mass extinction as a fear tactic to scare the public into compliance. The IBPES itself is an existential threat to sensible policy on biodiversity conservation.
The UN IBPES claims there are 8 million species. Yet only 1.8 million species have been identified and named. Thus the IBPES believes there are 6.2 million unidentified and unnamed species. Therefore one million of the unknown species could go extinct overnight and we would not notice it because we would not know they had existed. This is highly unprofessional. Scientists should not, in fact cannot, predict estimates of endangered species or species extinction based on millions of undocumented species.
House Democrats attack Morano: "It’s truly odd that @NatResources Republicans would invite Marc Morano to a serious hearing on the future of the planet. If this is who they listen to on policy, why should anyone take their arguments seriously? Or is extinction a joke to them?"
Republicans have called climate deniers Marc Morano, the founder of Climate Depot, and Patrick Moore, chairman of the CO2 coalition.
Morano claims the report “hypes and distorts biodiversity issues for lobbying purposes”, while Moore’s group argues, despite the overwhelming science to the contrary, that more carbon dioxide is good for the planet.
Steve Milloy: Today’s elevation is not all that different from the low points of 1956 and 1965 (about 1,090 feet, shown in first graph), especially when you consider the increases in water use and human management of reservoir levels over time. No doubt that drought is affecting Lake Mead. But Western drought is natural (the region is a desert, after all), and Lake Mead was comparably low more than 100 ppm CO2 ago.
Bill Gates, Sir Richard Branson, Hollywood actors, venture capitalists — they’re all pushing lab-grown meat as the solution to world hunger and environmental sustainability, but scientists last week told a panel of experts they have serious concerns about the product’s safety.
