Sacramento, California – Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger discusses Earth Day in his weekly radio address, which he broadcast on YouTube for the first time. Last night’s first broadcast caps a week full of social media use by the Governor.

Everyone can do something. This is the bottom line. By adjusting the thermostat, unplugging unused electronics, using efficient fluorescent bulbs, carpooling, or buying recycled products, and the list goes on and on.

CNN Features Climate Depot on ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight’ – Video

Washington, DC — CNN’s “Lou Dobb’s Tonight” featured Climate Depot and it’s executive editor Marc Morano in a news segment on April 24, 2009.

“Climate Depot is a forum for skeptics of global warming,” CNN reported, noting it is an “online magazine.” CNN featured the Climate Depot’s exclusive report on how the UK’s Lord Christopher Monckton was shut of Gore’s Congressional hearing on Friday.

“If you look at Gore’s testimony today, he was talking about what could, might and may happen 50 to 100 years from now,” Morano said on CNN. “He was not talking about reality,” he added.

Excerpt: The CNN segment highlighted a report that global warming skeptic Lord Christopher Monckton was denied the opportunity to testify before the House Subcommittee on Energy and the Environment.

“The House Democrats don’t want Gore humiliated, so they slammed the door of the Capitol in my face,” Monckton told the online magazine Climate Depot,” CNN correspondent Lisa Sylvester said.

And as Climate Depot’s Marc Morano explained – most Gore’s doom-and-gloom forecasts are to occur in the distant future.

“If you look at Gore’s testimony today, he was talking about what could, might and may happen 50 to 100 years from now,” Morano said to CNN. “He was not talking about reality.”
