Marc Morano is CFACT's editor in chief of Climate Depot, and he has been garnering extensive coverage lately. Last week he was cited in the Washington Times. This week it's the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang and Fox Nation. Today, Andrew Freedman of the Washington Post described Climate Depot as "the climate skeptic equivalent of the Drudge Report." Yesterday, Marc Morano wrote a story about how Al Gore, self-proclaimed inventor of the internet, had his website crash because it could not handle all the traffic it received after Drudge linked to it. That story was quickly picked up by Fox News, [...]
The editor of CFACT's Climate Depot, Marc Morano, was recently cited in a Washington Times editorial: Last week, blogger Marc Morano discovered a Nov. 24 blog post by Mr. Hansen calling on China to lead an international effort to impose fees on carbon-dioxide emissions, then lead the World Trade Organization to allow import fees on goods from any county - with the U.S. being the target - without such fees. The goal would be to punish America, causing “continual descent into second-rate and third-rate economic well-being,” until the “fossil-money- ‘democracy’” no longer “rules the roost in Washington.” Mr. Hansen also praised [...]
Marc Morano of CFACT's Climate Depot has been widely cited in the media this week. In the above video, Morano appeared on Fox News to discuss the violent climate change video recently released by the environmental group 10:10. In this video (you can watch the full version here, but be warned it is very graphic), a classroom of students are asked whether they plan to reduce their carbon footprints. The few who dissent are murdered by their teacher – covering their classmates in blood. Viewers are then treated to a repeat of this gory spectacle in business, sports and media settings. [...]
CFACT’s Climate Depot has been honored with its third award in 2010. In February, Climate Depot won the Accuracy in Media Award which was presented at CPAC. Climate Depot was also honored in June with the Doctors for Disaster Preparedness’ 2010 Petr Beckmann Award for “demonstrating courage and achievement in defense of scientific truth and freedom.” In August, Climate Depot has now been inducted into the “Townhall of Fame.” Townhall honored Climate Depot Executive Editor Marc Morano for “taking on the climate change movement and leaving a trail of discredited left-wing science in his wake.”Full article is here.
Physicist Dr. Denis Rancourt, a former professor and environmental science researcher at the University of Ottawa, has officially bailed out of the man-made global warming movement.In a hard-hitting and exclusive new exclusive video just released by Climate Depot, Dr. Rancourt declares that the entire man-made global warming movement is nothing more than a “corrupt social phenomenon.” “It is as much psychological and social phenomenon as anything else,” Rancourt, who has published peer-reviewed research, explained in a June 8, 2010 essay.“I argue that by far the most destructive force on the planet is power-driven financiers and profit-driven corporations and their cartels backed [...]
Marc Morano recently received an award for his work as editor of CFACT's Climate Depot website, which provides comprehensive information on breaking climate news and related environmental issues. The Petr Beckmann award was presented to Morano by Doctors for Disaster Preparedness (DDP). Jane Orient, the president of DDP, said the award is "given to those who speak out courageously, even though it might be politically incorrect, to support the truth that is essential for our progress in science. Our recipient this year has been particularly effective in winning victories in this field." Not everyone was happy about the commendation, however. Leo [...]
Marc Morano of CFACT's Climate Depot appears on the July 2 "Your World" with guest host Stuart Varn. Marc discusses the United Kingdom's attempt to stop "binge flying" by stopping airport runway construction. Says Marc, "This at a time when the science has been exposed as sub-prime science." Marc Morano is the editor of Climate Depot.
In a not-so-subtle attempt to malign the character of global warming skeptics, ABC News recently aired a report investigating alleged “death threats” and other acts of intimidation brought against climate change scientists by white supremacist groups and attempted to link them to the criticisms leveled at these scientists by global warming critics. The ABC story, perhaps not coincidentally, was aired shortly after the Fourth International Conference on Climate Change in Chicago this past week, an event where hundreds of climate change scientists and experts gather each year to share findings which contradict the assessments of the U.N. and environmentalist organizations regarding [...]
Michael Mann, creator of the infamous "hockey stick" graph isn't amused by a YouTube satire video featuring the refrain "hide the decline," a quote from the Climategate emails. He's threatened to sue the video's creators. Marc Morano, editor of CFACT's award winning ClimateDepot appeared on FoxNews to discuss.Marc was asked whether he thought Mann could prove that the point the satire was making was not true. "I don't think he can," Morano replied. "I mean, this just goes to show you how the mighty have fallen. Michael Mann was a top U.N. scientist who is now in 2010 spending his time [...]
Accuracy in Media, a citizens' media watchdog organization, awarded CFACT's own Marc Morano the Reed Irvine Accuracy in Media Award on Thursday. "I am thrilled to recognize ... Marc Morano's excellent reporting on the ClimateGate scandal that exposed the politicized science behind claims that the science is settled on global warming," said Don Irvine, chairman of Accuracy in Media. Accuracy in Media's mission is to promote fairness, balance, and accuracy in news reporting. Founded in 1969, AIM is America's first non-profit press watchdog group. The Reed Irvine Accuracy in Media Award was established in 2005 to honor those who have made outstanding [...]
House Global Warming Subcommittee Chairman Ed Markey (D-MA) was outraged that a renegade freelance lobbyist had sent a dozen phony letters to members of Congress, urging them to vote against cap-and-trade legislation. Congress will not tolerate “forgery and identity theft” in attempting to influence the passage of legislation, members solemnly intoned. The letters misled Congress and imperiled its integrity and deliberative process. Few Americans would disagree. But after their usual pontificating, the Democrats once again proved that, if they didn’t have double standards, they would have no standards. Mr. Markey and his big-D colleagues excoriated the guilty parties they had summoned [...]
Former Vice President Al Gore has been one of the most prominent and staunch advocates for global-warming based public policy, but is his motivation purely altruistic? Perhaps not, according to the New York Times, who reported that Silver Spring Networks, a company that Mr. Gore’s venture capital firm had heavily invested, is due to receive up to $560 million of the $3.4 billion given by the government via smart grid grants. Mr. Gore and his investment firm are set to compound their investments, due in no small part to the global warming alarmism that Mr. Gore has been espousing. While Mr. [...]
An issue for which the science is supposedly "settled" by a complete "consensus" of scientists would seem to offer the perfect opportunity to win over a skeptical public once and for all. But look no further than global warming movement's effort to ignore the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's call to put the science on trial, involving cross-examinations, witnesses, and a judge to make a final ruling. Climate fear promoters, knowing that they will lose an open, honest public debate, fear a trial moreso. There are some important pieces of evidence that cast into serious doubt the case for manmade global warming. [...]
The Washington Post's Andrew Freedman of paper's "The Capital Weather Gang", has written a thorough commentary on why he believes the man-made global warming movement is failing politically and scientifically to convince the public and lawmakers of the seriousness of the issue. Freedman appears to lay the fault directly at the feet of President Obama, writing that Obama's "mistakes may cost the planet dearly." Freedman also cites Climate Depot (and the Heartland Institute) as having made a huge impact in shaping lawmakers and the public's skeptical view of the latest climate science. Freedman wrote in a September 1, 2009 Washington Post essay [...]
