Author Chris Mooney Urges Creation of ‘Counter-Morano’ – Accuses Climate Depot of spreading ‘misinformation about global warming’

Author Chris Mooney, who wrote the 2009 book “Unscientific America: How Scientific Illiteracy Threatens our Future,” appeared on Boston’s NPR affiliate on September 17, 2009 to discuss the book and accuse Climate Depot of spreading climate science “misinformation.”

Mooney, who also wrote the 2006 book “The Republican War on Science,” boasted on his Discover Magazine blog, “I also manage take on Marc Morano to boot!”

In the NPR interview, Mooney lamented how difficult it is to get out accurate climate science to the public because ”the scientific committee is losing the communication battle.” (Comments to Mooney on his blog can be left here.)

Mooney said on NPR: “Marc Morano, who used to work for Sen. Inhofe in Senate, and now he has got his own website, Climate Depot and he is out there just putting out all of this misinformation about global warming all the time.” (To listen to audio go here. Climate Depot reference around 11:30 mark.)

“And there is nobody that I can think of in the world of the science that exists that is the equivalent of the counter-Morano, there are some people who try,” Mooney added.

Did Mooney Duck CNN Debate with Morano?

Mooney, was originally scheduled to debate Climate Depot’s Morano in July of 2008 on CNN about the alleged claims of “censorship” during the Bush Administration, but according to a CNN producer Mooney had to cancel and a representative from the League of Conservation voters was found to fill in for the absent Mooney on the July 13, 2008 broadcast. [Climate Depot’s Editor’s Note: To find out the real story of who is censoring who, please see: Morano on CNN debates alleged ‘censorship’ of global warming science (Video & Transcript) – July 13, 2008) I even went out and purchased a copy of Chris Mooney’s book to prepare for the scheduled CNN debate.

Meteorologist suggests NOAA is manipulating data to support climate claims and political goals

Below is a guest essay by Meteorologist Joe D’Aleo, the first Director of Meteorology at The Weather Channel and former chairman of the American Meteorological Society’s (AMS) Committee on Weather Analysis and Forecasting. D’Aleo publishes www.IceCap.US

D’Aleo comments on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) claim that global sea-surface temperatures (SST’s) were recently the hottest since 1880.

D’Aleo comments on NOAA’s claim of ‘record’ sea surface temps: To enable them to make the case the oceans are warming, NOAA chose to remove satellite input into their global ocean estimation and not make any attempt to operationally use NASA’s Argo data in the process. This resulted in a jump of 0.2C or more and ‘a new ocean warmth record’ in July. ARGO tells us this is another example of NOAA’s inexplicable decision to corrupt data to support political agendas.

D’Aleo on NOAA global temperature claims: What can I say. Between the station dropout (80% of the world’s stations, mostly rural), removal in US or absence globally of any UHI (Urban Heat Island) adjustment, bad siting for 90% of the climate stations and the recent removal of satellite input into the ocean temperature assessments, NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) has ensured that each and every month and season will rank and ‘validate’ their piece of excrement called CCSP and support the government’s argument for Cap-and-Tax, carbon regulations and global actions at Copenhagen.

This is not an indictment of the hard-working and honest rank-and-file NOAA employees at the local offices and even behind the scenes at NCDC. It is the fault of higher ups and managers whose jobs and reputations rely on perpetrating the global warming hoax long enough so the governments can have their way to control virtually every aspect of our lives and keep the funding at the highest possible level for those who have abused the science to their benefit.
