CFACT’s Marc Morano, editor of ClimateDepot.com, appeared on “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Fox News Channel to respond to Al Gore’s recent comments comparing “climate deniers” to “all of those almost 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas, who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred.” Gore made this comment on “Meet the Press.”

Morano: “Gore is trying desperately to say something provocative to make himself relevant which is how he came up with the Uvalde school shooting analogy which is absurd.”

Morano: “Due to fossil fuels, due to our energy that Gore has been fighting for decades, there has been a 99% drop in climate-related deaths since 1920. It is a success story and mostly credited to fossil fuels which fuel development, which fuel economic growth, which fuels safety from extreme weather events. So Gore has it wrong. The people blocking him (the ‘climate deniers’) are the ones saving lives.”

After 100 years of climate change, ‘climate-related deaths’ approach zero – Dropped by over 99% since 1920
