Revealed: What Ezra Levant Wanted His "Banned" Reporters To Do At Marrakech UN Climate Talks

Conservative Canadian broadcaster Ezra Levant is appealing to the public and his prime minister to intervene in a row with organisers of the upcoming United Nations climate conference.

Levant wanted to send three staff members from his “The Rebel” media company to the COP22 talks taking place next month in Marrakech, Morocco.

The Rebel had applied to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change for media accreditation but, according to screenshots shared by Levant, the UN has declined the application because “advocacy media outlets do not qualify for media accreditation.”

DeSmog can reveal that Levant’s crew intended to film other journalists at press conferences and outside the venue, in an apparent attempt to expose what Levant thinks is a hypocritical media.

At a Rebel event in Edmonton in September, U.S.-based climate science denialist Marc Morano, who would be an “honorary Rebel journalist” in Morocco, told an audience member he intends to “put on a disguise” at the conference.

Global Warming Policy Foundation Video on Antarctica Criticised By Own Source for Sea Level Claims

GWPF Antarctic Fail

When is a “climate briefing” not actually a briefing?

Perhaps when it’s only 90 seconds long and comes from a group with a history of promoting climate science denial that’s been in trouble with government charity watchdogs for pushing one-sided views?

The group in question is the London-based Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), founded by Conservative Party peer Lord Nigel Lawson.

Introducing Alex Jones: A Rage Machine Who Thinks Clinton 'Smells of Sulphur' and Global Warming is a Total Hoax

In case you didn’t know, there are people on Hillary Clinton’s security detail who think that she’s a “demon possessed” because she “smells like sulphur”.

President Obama smells like sulphur too and, apparently, the internet is awash with photographs and images of the president in crowded rooms where he is the only person to have flies land on him.

We are dealing with demons here.”

Welcome, ladies and gentleman of the internet, to the scratch n’ sniff world according to Alex Jones, the walking and almost always yelling one-stop shop for all your New World Order global government conspiracy needs.

Exclusive: Royal Society Under Internal Pressure To Cancel Venue Booking From Global Warming Policy Foundation

The Royal Society is coming under internal pressure to cancel a booking on its premises made by climate science “sceptic” group the Global Warming Policy Foundation, DeSmogUK can reveal.

Several fellows and associates of the society – the world’s oldest scientific academy, founded in 1660 – are angry over an agreement to hire its premises to the GWPF for its 17 October annual lecture, to be delivered by Lord Matt Ridley.

DeSmogUK also understands some scientists intend to raise the issue at a meeting of the Royal Society’s governing council on 6 October, with a request to cancel the GWPF booking.

Climate Science Denier Lord Monckton Tours Montana Thanks To GOP Group And An Extreme Fringe

What do members of a sovereign citizen-style shadow government group, rank and file Republicans and a mining company all have in common?

Well, if they’re in Montana, then they’re all supporters of a speaking tour by British climate science denier Lord Christopher Monckton.

Monckton is in the middle of a series of talks in the state covering climate change and the UK’s vote to exit the European Union.

The hereditary peer has long held the debunked views that human-caused climate change is largely a scam and that the science is enabling the likes of the United Nations to put in place an all powerful world government.

Climate Science Denialist Myron Ebell Named As Trump Adviser As Debate Skirts Climate

Donald Trump, left, and Hillary Clinton, right, at first presidential debate.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s energy policy to dig, drill, and frack as much fossil fuel out of the ground as possible only really works by denying two realities.

The first reality denied is that there is no global agreement to move the world away from the fuels that Trump thinks are the future.

The second reality denied, of course, is the existence of decades of scientific evidence linking fossil fuel burning to dangerous climate change.

So with this in mind, the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s (CEI) Myron Ebell seems a perfect addition to Trump’s team.
