Welcome to Climate Depot, the most effective source of climate communication on Earth! That’s the conclusion published in a “peer-reviewed” scientific journal on August 13, 2019, so we suppose it most be true. Climate Depot, spearheaded by Marc Morano, serves as an information clearinghouse and one-stop shop for reporters, policymakers, students, scientists and concerned citizens seeking a balanced perspective that corrects the record on global warming, energy, the environment and other issues impacting people and our planet. We serve as an ombudsman of media eco-reporting.

Climate Depot was launched in April of 2009 as a special project of CFACT, The Committee For a Contructive Tomorrow, a Washington, D.C.-based, freedom-oriented, public policy organization that has been working since 1985 to provide facts and analysis that allow people to make informed choices on these crucial issues. Vast sums are being expended, major economic transformations proposed, and we are regularly asked to curtail individual freedom, all in the name of global warming, climate change, climate crisis, or whatever they come up with next. The dire pronouncements we hear daily, the routine falsehoods and exaggerations, and the questionable, yet undeniably expensive, “solutions” set forth, cry out for critical examination. Climate Depot effectively ensures that examination takes place for all to see. We need to make informed, rational decisions about what drives the climate, whether and what actions are advisable, how effective they would be, and whether the benefits outweigh the costs. Climate Depot fearlessly and diligently provides all sides when we consider a public policy issue. We stand squarely behind your right to speak and know. To those who seek to cut off debate, bury the facts, and censor inconvenient viewpoints we ask, “What are you afraid of?”


Marc Morano serves as executive editor and chief correspondent for CFACT’s award-winning ClimateDepot.com, a news and information service he founded in 2009. He is the author of The Great Rese: Global Elites and The Permanent Lockdown;  Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal is Even Worse Than You Think, and The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change.


He is also the award-winning producer, writer, and host of Climate Hustle — a film released in 2016 to hundreds of U.S. theatres — and Climate Hustle 2 in 2020. In a 2019 Study in the Journal Nature, Morano was ranked the NUMBER ONE ‘climate contrarian’ in the media! (#1 out of 386 skeptics). In 2016, Morano was forcibly detained and removed by armed UN climate cops from the United Nationals 2016 COP 22 climate summit in Morocco.


He is a frequent guest on radio and television talk in the U.S. and internationally, including CNN, Fox News, the BBC, and Newsmax, One America News. He has been profiled in the New York Times, Esquire magazine, Rolling Stone, and numerous others. 


Marc got his start as a reporter for the nationally syndicated “Rush Limbaugh, the Television Show.” He next served as an investigative reporter for Cybercast News Service and as a reporter and producer for the nationally syndicated television news magazine “American Investigator.” In 2000, his investigative television documentary “Amazon Rainforest: Clear-Cutting the Myths” created an international firestorm. During his tenure as senior advisor, speechwriter, and climate researcher for U.S. Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), he managed the award-winning communication operations of the GOP side of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works.


Morano, who has spent years researching climate change, environmental, and energy issues, traveled all over the globe attending key UN Climate, Sustainability, and Eco Conferences in Kenya, Indonesia, Poland, Copenhagen, France, Greenland, Argentina, Brazil, Morocco, Egypt, and South Africa, just to name a few. 


Morano was born in Washington, DC, and grew up in McLean, VA. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at George Mason University.

  • Climate Depot is “a great aggregation of so many stories — mostly of the radical, unbelievable apocalyptic kind — and it is great reference point for you.
