A UN IPCC Scientist’s New Study! ‘Global Warming Sparks Fistfights & War, Researchers Say’: ‘Will systematically increase the risk of many types of conflict ranging from barroom brawls & rape to civil wars & international disputes’ — Climate Depot Responds

Statement by Climate Depot Publisher Marc Morano on new global warming/violence study: “Instead of looking at temperature data or other climate metrics to prove or disprove man-made global warming claims, the global warming activists have now shifted the playing field so rape and murder statistics are now used as some sort of ‘proof’ of man-made global warming.  Global  warming science has truly morphed to modern witchcraft!’

Skeptics blast Interior Sec. Jewell’s comments as ‘scientific cleansing’: Climate Depot’s Morano: ‘It’s a way for the Obama administration to silence any internal critics’

Skeptics blast Jewell’s comments as ‘scientific cleansing’

Some observers are outraged over comments made yesterday by Interior Secretary Sally Jewell when she said she hoped there are “no climate change deniers” at her agency.

Jewell made the statement yesterday during a sweeping town hall address to Interior employees in which she discussed the budget, resources, youth outreach programs, water, tribal relations and other topics. The agency is poised to take substantive action on climate change, she said, adding that doing so is not only a privilege but a moral imperative (E&ENews PM, July 31).

But the comments have drawn outrage from observers who are skeptical that climate change is caused by humans. The blog JunkScience.com posted a story about the comments under the headline “Scientific Cleansing.”

“It’s a way for the Obama administration to silence any internal critics,” said Marc Morano, publisher of the blog Climate Depot and a former Republican staffer on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. “If you are a scientist, engineer or bureaucrat and you don’t buy the party line of a man-made climate crisis, this is a message you better keep your mouth shut or your career is going to be impacted.”

Marlo Lewis, a Competitive Enterprise Institute senior fellow, expressed similar concerns about the “chilling effect” Jewell’s comments could have on the agency.

“Only a few months on the job and Jewell already behaves like a self-righteous bully,” he wrote in a post on GlobalWarming.org. “A good swift dose of congressional oversight is in order. It might just keep the thought police from harassing climate dissenters at DOI.”

Environmental groups, however, welcomed the statement.

“It’s great to have a secretary of Interior who recognizes the challenges ahead of us and wants to have an agency using the best science available and making progress in solving these problems,” said Josh Saks, legislative director at the National Wildlife Federation.

And Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, a nonpartisan alliance that represents environmental watchdogs and whistle-blowers within government agencies, said it was unalarmed by Jewell’s statement.

While PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch said that “typically, the private views of employees should be beyond the purview of the secretary,” he did not think she was out to purge the agency of climate change …
