A video from a late-night TV show featuring six Southern California climate scientists speaking in plain language about the reality of climate change — some using bleeped out profanity to underscore their message — has gone viral.
Brown, from Ignacio, made his comment during an evening debate before the full House, speaking to colleagues from a podium at the front of the chamber.
Lawmakers were discussing legislation that would require the Public Utilities Commission to consider greenhouse gas emissions when contemplating a utility’s electric proposals.
The remark raised eyebrows.
Later that evening, Brown told The Durango Herald that he is skeptical as to the cause of climate change.
“We continue to have climate change, I just question whether it’s man-made,” Brown said.
The film premiered in theaters for one day on Monday, when Brown saw it. Future releases are expected and trailers are available online at ClimateHustleMovie.com.
“‘Climate Hustle’… reveals the history of climate scares, including global cooling; debunks outrageous claims about temperatures, extreme weather and the so-called ‘consensus’; exposes the increasingly shrill calls to ‘act immediately before it’s too late,’ and in perhaps the film’s most important section, profiles key scientists who used to believe in climate alarm but have since converted to skepticism,” reads an explanation of the film on the movie’s website.
The film has been promoted by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
It was financed by the conservative Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, and was written and narrated by Marc Morano, a high-profile climate change skeptic.
Morano, who began his career working for conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh, runs the CFACT-funded blog ClimateDepot.com, which posts information often denying climate change is human-made.
The film caught the attention of late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel, who lambasted Palin during “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Monday, stating, “The idea that she knows more than 97 percent of scientists is offensive, it’s dangerous.”
Brown defended the film, stating: “These scientists (in the film) are saying that carbon dioxide is a good thing, that it’s actually fertilizing plants, and I think we just need to look at the science. This documentary says that, actually, we’re short on carbon dioxide compared to other times in world history.”
Colorado environmental groups had harsh words for Brown, calling his comments “baffling.”
“It’s an incredibly out-of-touch statement from a legislator whose district continues to have major challenges with air pollution,” said Jessica Goad, spokeswoman for Conservation
Mandeville, LA – Mike Church interviews Climate Depot’s Marc Morano to talk about his epic documentary on climate change The Climate Hustle, available soon on DVD. The film and this interview covers Bill Nye The Science Guy’s wish that “warming skeptics” might die; the growing body of scientific evidence that shows no warming this century and the hilarious role reversals this cause the tree-huggers to engage in. Morano is in top form here and listeners are going to want to buy the film after listening to this discussion.
‘Climate Hustle’, the number 6 movie in nation on Monday Night – Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel’s hus**ing us
Jimmy Kimmel went on a two night rant about CFACT’s new film Climate Hustle even deploying the secret weapon of lazy comedians everywhere — Profanity. Well, it’s easier for him than learning about the issue.
Meanwhile the people who turned out Monday night to see Climate Hustle at the movies continue to report how delighted they are with the film.
It appears that on Monday Climate Hustle was the number six movie in the nation. When you consider that Hustle was going up against Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the Jungle Book, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, and Barbershop: The Next Cut, this is huge. Those other films were in thousands more theaters around the country with multiple show times throughout the night.
Climate Hustle continues to average four out of five stars at the movie review site Fandango even though many climate hustlers who didn’t even bother to see the film posted one star reviews in a vain attempt to blunt our momentum.
