Warmists lament & seek to ban skeptics: ‘Morano appeared on major cable and network news shows 30 times between 2009 and 2014 to deny climate science or attack environmental policies’

Marc Morano rose to prominence working for two of the most vocal climate deniers in the U.S., Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) and talk radio host Rush Limbaugh. These days Morano runs the climate science denial blog Climate Depot, for which he is paid by the fossil fuel industry-funded Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT). He played a key role  in falsely scandalizing “Climategate,” and once said that climate scientists “deserve to be publicly flogged.”

Whenever there is a big climate-related story, Fox News turns to Morano to sow doubt on climate science, featuring him 11 times in 2014 alone. Most recently, Morano appeared on Fox News’ Happening Now to complain that Google’s new policy of ranking websites by their accuracy would prevent climate denial sites like Morano’s from getting enough attention. Morano has also appeared on CNN several times to debate climate science.

Not counting his recent appearance on Fox News, Morano appeared on major cable and network news shows 30 times between 2009 and 2014 to deny climate science or attack environmental policies.
