Fox News excerpts: ‘Marc Morano, a global warming skeptic and publisher of the website ClimateDepot.com, applauds the administration’s strategy, if not its purpose
“The Obama administration is being strategically brilliant by doing this behind the scenes,” he says. “They’re going to achieve everything that cap and trade, and UN treaties and even a carbon tax would achieve through the invisibility of federal regulations. ”
Morano believes the statement smacks of intimidation. “”They’re saying if you’re a skeptic and you work for the administration, you better keep your mouth shut and not express your views.”
He also points out that the scientific method is based upon skepticism and continually challenging assumptions, not accepting them.
Morano’s website is a repository of global warming skepticism. He points to new studies from highly credentialed Russian skeptics, including scientists from Russia’s Pulkovo Observatory and Academy of Sciences, who are predicting,based upon a diminution of sunspot activity, a mini-ice age lasting up to 250 years.
