France’s Top Weatherman Hired By Kremlin After Being Fired For Questioning Global Warming

France’s top weatherman has found a new gig after being fired in November for questioning global warming in his new book: he’s working for Russian state-owned media.

French news outlet Le Figaro reports Philippe Verdier is covering the United Nations climate summit in Paris for Russia Today France. Verdier has a daily news segment dedicated to covering what goes on during the U.N. climate talks.

“Hello I am very happy to talk to you about the daily COP21 … in freedom,” Verdier said in his first segment on Russia Today, according to a translation by The Daily Caller News Foundation, clearly taking a swipe at the French media for firing him.

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 …

Cheers to China! Paris Climate Talks Are Doomed Because China Knows ‘Climate Change’ Is A Hoax

China sees it as a brilliant opportunity to fleece the gullible for as much money as it can, to burnish its international image by making all the right green noises, and to blackmail the West into providing it with free technology.

But it has no intention whatsoever of sacrificing economic growth by reducing its carbon dioxide emissions.

Obama and other Western leaders like to pretend that China’s appalling air pollution – the “airpocalypse” afflicting major cities which kills at least half a million a year – gives it a strong incentive to reduce its CO2 levels. But in fact the opposite is true.

That’s because China understands – as the West pretends not to – that CO2 and “pollution” are very different things.

Not only do the goals of reducing carbon emissions and air pollution not reinforce each other, they conflict. Carbon dioxide is a colourless, odourless, tasteless gas that does not harm health. Efforts to reduce it rely on un-proven abatement technologies, and are prohibitively expensive. In contrast, abating air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide rely on proven technologies and are relatively inexpensive.

Although China’s leaders aim to reduce the country’s fossil-fuel consumption to 80% of its energy mix by 2030, they will not forsake national economic growth for the supposed global good. This is because China’s Communist Party knows that to stay in power – its highest priority – it must maintain the economic growth rates that have raised the incomes of much of its population and kept opposition at bay. China’s leaders know that GDP growth is tied to fossil- fuel use.…
