Exclusive Video: People’s Climate March hostile to skeptics – Attempts to take down signs, deny access
WASHINGTON DC — The People’s Climate March in Washington DC today turned into a hostile environment for climate skeptics. Attempts to deny media credentials, block vehicle access and multiple attacks on banners by the marchers, were frequent throughout the day.

The People’s Climate March initially officially rejected climate skeptics’ media credentials, despite the group being being pre-registered for media passes and meeting all requirements. March organizers informed us that we were “not a credible” news outlet and were therefore being denied media credentials which would have granted us access to speaker and VIP areas of the march. Prior to being told we were rejected, the organizers had given no indication that there was any kind of issue. After submitting our registration for media passes, we received regular media updates throughout the week.
But a few hours later, The People’s Climate March reversed their decision and issued media credentials for us at the march…sort of. We went to the main media tent and asked why we were not allowed to be credentialed. We saw on the media list that our entry on it had a huge red line through it, implying that we had been approved, but then red lined out and rejected.
After hearing that “space was limited” and “I only work here” and “not sure” why you can’t get credentials, we were directed to one of the heads of credentialing who finally approved our passes. I asked “ Do you really want another Berkeley” style incident here?
But even though we finally received our press passed, we had already missed most of the VIP area media availability, so the passes came a bit too late to have a full access to the attendees.
When we were finally allowed into the VIP area, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse recognized me from time as a former Sen. Inhofe staff as the Director of Communications for the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee and from the film “Merchants of Doubt” which smears climate skeptics (and which Whitehouse had a special screening on Capitol Hill).
I had a rousing interview with Whitehouse, but immediately after that, a whisper campaign in the VIP area …
Watch: Morano on Canadian TV talks Trump: ‘Plain talk’ on climate agenda may unleash full-blown ‘Clexit’
The last time we saw Climate Hustle director Marc Morano, he was causing a ruckus at the UN Climate Change Conference in Morocco. His documentary detailing misconceptions about climate change, and obvious enthusiasm for Donald Trump, made him so unwelcome he was “escorted” out by climate cops.
I recently ran into Marc in much tamer circumstances when he was a keynote speaker at this year’s Freedom Talk event hosted by the Economic Education Association here in Alberta.
A lot has changed since Morocco and of course, Morano had a lot to say about the new President of the United States, Donald Trump.
Watch as I speak with Morano about Trump’s climate change policies and get his take on how to gauge Trump’s success on the way to making America great again!
Morano is currently working on a sequel to Climate Hustle as he continues to challenge the scientific consensus on climate change. Just back from a screening of the documentary in Brussels for the EU Parliament, Morano’s film is making the rounds and impacting the conversation.

Science Restored in DC! EPA chief says CO2 not primary contributor to ‘global warming’ – Calls UN Climate Treaty ‘a bad deal’
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt said Thursday he does not believe carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming.
“I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there’s tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact, so no, I would not agree that it’s a primary contributor to the global warming that we see ,” he told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
“But we don’t know that yet. … We need to continue the debate and continue the review and the analysis.”
“This idea that if you’re pro-environment you’re anti-energy is just something we’ve got to change so that attitude is something we’re working on very much,” he said.
Pruitt also called the Paris Agreement, an international accord aimed at mitigating the impacts of climate change, “a bad deal.” He said it puts the United States on a different playing field than developing countries like China and India.
The United States has vowed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 26 to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025. In comparison, China has committed to reach peak carbon emissions levels by 2030, but will try to reach that point sooner.
Testifying before Congress, former UN climate scientist Dr Patrick Michaels says the Paris climate commitments from China “are nothing but business as usual” and “the Indian commitment is less than nothing.” Michaels: “They’re not doing anything.”

Lomborg Blasts UN Paris Treaty’s $100 Trillion Price Tag For No Temp Impact: ‘You won’t be able to measure it in 100 years’
Via: Newsbusters – By James Powers
$100 trillion for a 0.3 degree temperature drop.
That’s a price tag that sounds acceptable to liberals, but not to everyone. An economist and environmentalist who says man-made climate change is real still argues that is “an incredibly expensive way to do almost no good.”
Self-proclaimed “skeptical environmentalist and” president of the Copenhagen Consensus Center Bjorn Lomborg appeared on FBN’s Varney & Company on Feb. 14, to discuss The Paris Agreement. He advised the new president to drop the agreement and focus on other solutions. He also criticized the expense of the deal, for what it would supposedly do to temperatures.
“If everyone does all they promised — and remember the track record ain’t that good — but if everyone does all they promised and do it all the way through the century, we’ll reduce temperatures by end of the century by 0.3 degrees Fahrenheit,” Lomborg said. “You won’t be able to measure it in a one hundred years,” he added.
“Yet the costs will be somewhere between $1 trillion and $2 trillion a year. Paying $100 trillion for no good is not a good deal.”
Lomborg recommended that President Donald Trump drop the Paris Agreement but added that “if you want to do something about climate” then we must “invest in research and development into green energy sources.”
He said the debate about the Paris Agreement is “about identity politics. It’s about feeling good… but the climate doesn’t care about how you feel. It’s about doing good.”
“The reason why we emit CO2 — remember, we don’t do it to annoy Al Gore — we do it because it powers everything we like about civilization. So we want permanent and good and cheap energy. Right now we get that from fossil fuels. If we are going to get it from some other source, we need that to be much much cheaper.”
That U.N. climate treaty was approved in late 2015 and signed by former President Obama in April 2016. Reuters reported the deal’s terms began to take effect Nov. 4, 2016.
The liberal media have exaggerated the supposed positive impacts of the agreement. NBC’s Ron Allen praised Obama’s support for the climate agreement and claimed it was …
Warmists promote death to Africa?! ‘It’s time for Africa to reject current development model based on fossil fuels’
Man made induced climate changes are escalating frequent and intense weather events.
With an escalating climate crisis and more devastating damages, it’s time for Africa to reject the current development model based on fossil fuels and rapidly transition towards a decentralised renewable energy system which can not only respond to the growing energy needs, but also integrate community resilience to climate change.
