Among the loudest skeptics is Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot, who proclaims the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is “conning the public” with a recent report that 2014 was the warmest year on record globally.
Morano, a former U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee staff member, calls the report “shameless activism shown by our federal scientists” and denounced NOAA’s findings as “statistically meaningless.”
“The feds are conning the public on 2014 being the ‘hottest year,’” Morano countered in a statement. “We now know that both NASA and NOAA knew their ‘hottest year’ claims would not hold up to scientific scrutiny. But both agencies chose instead to loudly push the global warming narrative to a willing and compliant news media.”
