Morano: “The more the plans fail, the more the planners keep planning and passing regulations.”
“What Scott Pruitt really represents — you see my smile here — This is the end of superstition in Washington. And it’s actually going back to science and actual cost benefit analysis. It’s very simple: The EPA climate plan is the signature Obama executive order — he couldn’t get it through Congress so he bypassed democracy. But this plan wouldn’t even impact global CO2 levels, let alone global temperatures or storms. Yet Obama administration officials like John Podesta actually sold the regulations as as way to prevent storms and we need this because the storms are getting worse.”
Morano: “If you want to rescind Al Gore’s nobel prize — give it to fracking industry. they had the greatest effect. U.S. emissions now are at a 25 year low in the first half of 2016 due to fracking taking over for coal. It’s technology and new ways of doing it, not the heavy hand of regulation. CO2 emissions are not bad, I was being illustrative there.”
“During the combined presidencies of George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, the EPA imposed five federal air-quality implementation plans on states. Mr. Obama’s EPA imposed 56.” – “We’ve made extraordinary progress on the environment over the decades, and that’s something we should celebrate,” he says. “But there is real work to be done.” What kind of work? Hitting air-quality targets, for one: “Under current measurements, some 40% of the country is still in nonattainment.” There’s also toxic waste to clean up: “We’ve got 1,300 Superfund sites and some of them have been on the list for more than three decades.”
“U.S. energy-related CO2 emissions hit a 25-year low over the first six months of 2016…”
Watch Now: Hannity on Fox News features exclusive clips of ‘Climate Hustle’: First Time Broadcast of Select Clips
Hannity: “A new documentary called Climate Hustle takes aim at many of the global warming alarmists and debunks much of their so-called science.” Here is a clip of the film. [Show Climate Hustle clip showing that no matter the weather, ‘global warming’ is blamed as the cause.]
Hannity: “The film even goes after Lear Jet Liberal Al Gore. Watch this.” [Hannity then shows 2nd clip featuring Climate Statistician Dr. Caleb Rossiter and Geologist Dr. Robert Giegengack former chair of the Earth Sciences Dept. at the University of Pennsylvania, critiquing Al Gore’s film ‘An Inconvenient Truth.’]
Hannity: “The publisher of Climate Depot and the producer of Climate Hustle, Marc Morano is with us.”
Morano: “The goal of these UN climate conferences has nothing to do with science. They actually say even if we are wrong on the science, we are doing the right thing by policy.”
Hannity: “First it was the coming ice age, then it was earth is going to burn up and global warming and now they have climate change. As you pointed out in Climate Hustle, if it snows, if it doesn’t snow, if it rains, if it doesn’t rain, tsunami no tsunami, volcanic activity or not. It’s always climate change, no matter what it is!”
Morano: “Yes. In our film Climate Hustle, we go back to the 1970s. We have Walter Cronkite, ABC News, and Leonard Nimoy — warning of a coming ice age. And we say: ‘Before fossil fuels caused global warming, fossil fuels caused – global cooling. And there was actually the theory that fossil fuel burning was going to block out the sun and cool the earth [in the 1970s]. But now they say the 1970s global cooling scare never happened. Just like they are trying to erase the global warming ‘pause’ never happened. They are actually erasing the past on many important things.”
Morano on Obama’s speech from UN summit: “It was like an apocalyptic doom preacher trying to scare people with no basis in science. The idea that ISIS was created by man-made global warming because there was a drought in Syria is not based on science. In 1933, the government of Syria banned Yo-Yos because they thought they caused drought. And now modern day climate activists want …

Watch: Morano on Fox on new Fed fracking regs: ‘They are going after the foundation of fracking’s success’
National Review: Washington’s Redundant Fracking Regulations: ‘The new requirements largely seek to prevent water contamination, even though numerous credible studies — including those conducted by the federal government – have failed to find a connection between fracking itself and groundwater contamination. Even former EPA head Lisa Jackson had to repeatedly admit this, as did Department of Energy secretary Ernest Moniz…
In the 31 states where fracking occurs or could occur, the Center for Energy and Climate Economics found that “casing and cementing depth regulations are among the most homogeneous in our study; 29 of the 31 states have some form of regulation, and one of those that does not has little or no actual drilling.” In other words, states have already established rigorous standards for well construction…
Also, fracking fluids are far less scary than environmental activists want Americans to believe. A major study released last November by the University of Colorado Boulder found that the chemicals in fracking fluids were also used, to little fuss, in toothpaste, laxatives, detergent, and ice cream. These much-maligned “chemicals” are extremely diluted, with 99.95 percent of fracking fluid consisting of water and sand. Both a Halliburton executive and Colorado governor John Hickenlooper drank a glass of it, to no effect.

Watch: Morano on Fox on ‘Hottest Year’ Claims: ‘It’s statistical nonsense’ – ‘NASA’s Gavin Schmidt has egg all over his face with this’
Partial transcript of interview:
Marc Morano: Their error bars for claiming the ‘hottest years’ are 500% larger than the claimed difference. In other words, they are talking about statically meaningless temperature records that the instrument record can’t even measure. It’s way within the margin of error. It’s statistical nonsense. You asked, Stuart, can we poke holes in this? This is a house of cards, it’s collapsed on its own weight.
They said it was the hottest year on record based on statistically meaningless difference based on hundreds of a degree between hottest years. They admit now that they are only 38% sure 2014 was the ‘hottest year.’ They knew the media would run with this as though the ‘hottest year’ claim meant something but it means absolutely nothing.
It means in reality that the global warming pause continues. And according to the satellite data there has been no global warming for 18 years 3 months. Every kid in high school today has not experienced global warming.
There have been fluctuations, the satellite data uses NASA satellites and has been promoted by NASA as more accurate than ground based thermometers. They constantly adjust the land based data, they cool the past, and they heat the present. There is all kinds of siting issues with land based thermometers. So the global warming establishment now wants to ignore this satellite data which shows the 18 year pause.
We have scientists now using words like ‘misleading’ & ‘lies’ & ‘deception’ against NASA.
NASA’s lead global warning scientist is Gavin Schmidt. He’s got egg all over his face with this.
He knew when the hottest year claims went out to the media that this was something NASA did not have the confidence in– They should have presented that more prominently.
Stuart Varney asks Morano: ‘So you don’t think the earth is warming?’
Morano: The earth is warming since the end of the Little Ice Age in about 1850. Many of the glaciers you see — that people get all excited about about melting — a significant portion of them had melted by 1900 or 1950 before humans could have possibly had any kind of warming effect on the climate. (More on glaciers here, here, here and here.) And we have actually probably cooled since the medieval warm period that occurred from about …
Watch: Morano on Fox News on Pope Francis & Climate: ‘On every metric from polar bears on down, the global warming narrative has weakened’
Pope Francis turning attention to climate change – Marc Morano on Fox News Dec. 30, 2014
Marc Morano: ‘The Pope has picked a contentious scientific issue which — now going on almost two decades of no global warming, sea ice recovering, sea level rise actually decelerating, On every metric from polar bears on down, the global warming narrative has weakened. And to now have the Pope jump no that bandwagon would sow confusion among Catholics.’

Paper: ‘Pope Francis Errs In Linking Church To Corrupt Green Movement’ – Vatican ‘has been infiltrated by followers of a radical green movement’
We would remind Francis that the greatest acts of barbarism and the most villainous violations of basic human rights in history — slavery, the Holocaust, China’s one-child policy, Stalinism, Pol Pot’s killing fields, Mao’s starvation of millions, and on and on —have been perpetrated by the statists.’
‘Almost all the leading anti-climate-change initiatives endorsed by the Green Movement — cap and trade, carbon taxes, regulations against using abundant fossil fuels — are merely regressive taxes that hurt the poor the most.’
Paper: Pope Francis’s edict on climate change will anger ‘deniers’ and US churches – ‘The pope will publish a rare encyclical on climate change and human ecology. Urging all Catholics to take action on moral and scientific grounds, the document will be sent to the world’s 5,000 Catholic bishops and 400,000 priests, who will distribute it to parishioners.’
Watch Now: Morano on Fox News rebuts study claiming ‘Unstoppable’ Antarctica melting & Sea Level Rise: ‘When current reality fails to alarm, they make a bunch of scary predictions’
Watch Here: – May 14, 2014 – Fox Business Channel – Varney & Co.
Marc Morano: ‘This is very likely of natural origin. You have Gov. Jerry Brown worried about LAX being relocated because of this allegedly unstoppable melting.
We had similar scare stories in 1922. Similar scare stories in 2009. NYT’s Andrew Revkin is saying this is an awful misuse of the term ‘unstoppable.’
There have been peer-reviewed studies showing Antarctica as a whole is getting cooler. The eastern part of Antarctica, the largest part, has been gaining ice or stable. The land ice is very stable except for the western part of Antarctica, which is what this study looked at.
Meanwhile, Antarctic sea ice is at record expansion. Global sea ice, combining Arctic and Antarctic sea ice, is above average. Antarctica sea ice is well above average, breaking all kinds of records.
This is models. When current reality fails to alarm, they make a bunch of scary predictions. We are talking about 1000 year time scales and beyond for this melting.’
Antarctica Background Reading:
‘Irreversible Collapse Of Climate Alarmism’ – Antarctica & Sea Level claims – ‘Yet another non-crisis crisis’ – ‘Truth sacrificed in the name of sensationalism’ – ‘What is not clearly stated is that all glaciers, including the WAIS and those on Greenland, are constantly flowing down hill. The reason they flow is that they are constantly gaining mass from accumulated snowfall. Glaciers grow from the top and the added mass causes the ice to flow down hill… The fact of the matter is that the ice drainage rate—ice melting or breaking off into the ocean—is highly variable, as is the accumulation of new ice from precipitation. The time scales for variation can be long, longer than a human lifetime, so any snapshot at a particular instant must be taken with a grain of salt (or crystal of ice). Despite the caterwauling in the media, this is yet another non-crisis crisis. In fact, even while this new speedup in the WAIS’s march to the sea has been found, Antarctica is setting new records for surrounding sea ice for a second straight year, baffling scientists seeking to understand why this ice is expanding rather than shrinking in a supposedly warming world. How soon we forget the plight of those high-minded eco activists who got themselves stuck in the summer ice around the southernmost continent. If …

It is ironic that cars were once responsible for cleaning up cities!
The Horse Manure Problem: ‘By the late 1800s, large urban centers were ‘drowning in horse manure.’ — ‘The private automobile was widely hailed as an environmental savior’ – Gee, the models were off! ‘In 1894, the Times of London estimated that by 1950 every street in city would be buried 9 feet deep in horse manure. One New York prognosticator of 1890s concluded that by 1930 horse droppings would rise to Manhattan’s 3rd-story windows…Wet weather turned the streets into swamps and rivers of muck, but dry weather brought little improvement; the manure turned to dust’
Flashback Jan. 2009: NYT: California Seeks Home Thermostat Control – Excerpt: The conceit in the 1960s show “The Outer Limits” was that outside forces had taken control of your television set. California, state regulators are likely to have the emergency power to control individual thermostats, sending temperatures up or down through a radio-controlled device.
