Shoot the Messenger: Morano Ignores the Science; Attacks the Reporter

Hot air campaigner and Republican attack dog Marc Morano is once again using the Minority Page on the website of the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and the Environment to bash media that don't provide his kind of “balance” in climate change reporting.

Morano's target this time is the Associated Press Science writer Seth Borenstein, who reported on Monday that most (reputable) scientists fear that rising sea levels will swamp important American historical sites during the current century.

Morano doesn't bother to address the science OR the credentials of the experts whose work Borenstein quotes. Rather, the man known as Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe's “pet weasel” flails at the AP reporter because Borenstein “only quotes six scientists in the article, of which only one can be labeled a climate skeptic.”

Who is Marc Morano? And why should we care?

And speaking of Senator James Inhofe, many of our new readers might not be familiar with Inhofe's communications director Marc Morano. DeSmogBlog used to cover Morano's activities a lot closer until his boss's fall from grace as the chair of the powerful Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works.

So why am I bringing up Morano again if he is now nothing more than a spin-doctor for a low-ranking political dinosaur?

Well, because it's almost time for this year's Society of Environmental Journalist's National Conference.

Senator Inhofe and the difference between science and point-of-view

Here's the wiki definition of science, its about as clear as any I've ever seen:

“Science (from the Latin scientia, 'knowledge') is a system of acquiring knowledge based on the scientific method, as well as the organized body of knowledge gained through such research.[1][2]”

Someone should send this to Senator James Inhofe (R-OK).

Curmudgeon Inhofe throws himself in path of upcoming Live Earth concert

One of the most exciting outcomes of the mid-term election thrashing of the Republicans was that we'd no longer have to listen to the outrageous ranting of Senator Jim “global warming is a hoax” Inhofe as the Chair of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. Unfortunate for us, Inhofe is still getting quite a bit of ink as the minority chair of the EPW.

Unfortunately for Inhofe, he is having to take more and more desperate actions to get his global warming denier message out to the public.
