Watch Now: Morano on Fox slams ‘atrocious’ climate report by Tom Steyer, Paulson & Bloomberg. Morano on ‘risky business’ report: ‘What they have done is a bunch of fortune telling with models’
Morano on Fox Business with Stuart Varney: ‘They are implying – this is where it gets so far off the charts of science – they are implying that a carbon tax will somehow alter global temperature and future storms. That we can — through a carbon tax –impact the climate. This makes absolutely no sense — because carbon taxes, EPA regulations and cap-and-trade — not only would they not impact global temperatures, they would not even impact global CO2 levels in any way even if you buy their science.
It’s pure symbolism. There is no method by which you could gauge whether they would have an impact on climate.’
Report from fmr. NYC Mayor Bloomberg, fmr. Sec. of Treasury Paulson & Tom Steyer: U.S. to face multibillion-dollar bill from climate change – Called “Risky Business,” the report projects climate impacts at scales as small as individual counties. Its conclusions about crop losses and other consequences are based not on computer projections, which climate-change skeptics routinely attack, but on data from past heat waves. It paints a grim picture of economic loss.
Hank Paulson Pushes Carbon Tax To Avoid ‘Climate Bubble’ – Morano responds: ‘The Earth’s climate will not notice the impacts of a carbon tax one way or another’ – Daily Caller excerpt: Paulson’s oped was criticized as “fear mongering” by global warming skeptics and those opposed to carbon taxes as a solution to global warming. “It’s hard to determine what is more delusional, Paulson thinking the climate can be bailed out with a carbon tax or actually believing his actions as Treasury Secretary bailed out the U.S. economy,” Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “The Earth’s climate will not notice the impacts of a carbon tax one way or another,” Morano said. “But sadly for Americans, the impacts of a carbon tax would be felt daily. Paulson seems to believe that a carbon tax would in some way impact the climate.”…“I would say that Paulson should stick with his expertise in finances, but after the wrath of destruction his policies left on America, I think it is wise if Paulson avoids both finance and climate,” Morano said.
