Marc Morano: Global Warming Spin Doctor flogged as "Perfect Counter Guest Debater"

Marc Morano, former Republican spindoctor turned think tanker, is now touting himself as the “counter guest debater to Al Gore and Global Warming Climate change disinformation.”

Morano and his new employer the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) are flooding the inboxes of journalists and reporters today selling Marc Morano as a “global warming expert.” Claiming Morano as an “expert” in climate change is completely laughable and I think mainstream media will agree.

The only thing Marc Morano is “expert” in is spinning stories for this former Republican boss Senator James Inhofe (R-OK).

Here’s a copy of the email sent around today to news media outlets:

Here’s your counter guest debater to Al Gore and Global Warming Climate change disinformation plus

Here’s your counter guest debater to Al Gore and Global Warming Climate change disinformation plus how Obama’s Policies are affecting our economy.

For your on-air expert contributor talent files: Credentialed “Counter Guest” to popular global warming ideology: Here’s your anti-Gore Global Warming Expert who offers the science to counteract partisan and ideologically driven Environmental entities and issues.

 

If you believe most, or all, of the global warming dogma, you may use Marc as your “counter guest” to offer a lively, fair and balanced discussion to your audience.  If you are a skeptic of the current doctrine, Marc can aid your program by clearing up the deception with the facts.

 

Marc Morano infuses the environmental debate with a balanced and truthful scientific perspective.  Marc’s agenda is to revolutionize Climate and Environmental news dissemination to portray the accurate truth.

 

Marc says: “Much of what the media reports is simply a regurgitation of the rhetoric from partisan and ideologically driven environmental groups, foundations and the United Nations, which are spinning data to promote a cause.  Sadly, many of today’s mainstream climate reporters would be better suited writing newsletters for Al Gore than attempting to inform the public about the latest climate science developments”

Marc Morano Jumps the Sinking Inhofe Ship

Republican spindcotor Marc Morano is leaving his $134,000 post with Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) to start a *groan* “fledgling Web site that will serve as a ‘clearinghouse and one-stop shopping’ for climate and environmental news.”

See you in the real world Morano, you’re going to find it a lot harder to spin your climate change hoax message without the help of the government trough.

Here’s a backgrounder on Morano.

Research on Marc Morano's Climate Denier Gang

Earlier in the week we reported that the favored list of climate doubters Senator Inofe’s political assistant Marc Morano relies on to stoke the global warming is a hoax echo chamber had been discovered by the researchers at ThinkProgress.

In turn, our research team has taken Mornano’s list and added in all of the information we have here on DeSmogBlog about each of the indivuduals and made it into a handy referal page here: Researching Marc Morano’s Climate Denier Gang.

We are working to research the individuals on Morano’s list that we didn’t have information on and will be adding what we find.

Researching Marc Morano's Climate Denier Gang

We created this page to aggregate all of the information we have here on DeSmogBlog that relates to the recently uncovered list of climate deniers used by Senator James Inhofe’s assistant Marc Morano to sow doubt about the realities of global warming.

Marc Morano's Climate Denial Echo Machine

One of the oldest public relations trick in the book is called the “echo chamber” and it plays off the idea that if you repeat something often enough it becomes the truth. Senator James Inhofe’s political spindoctor Marc Morano knows this technique well and he has been using for years to shotgun blast out misinformation on global warming to right-wing media and bloggers for years.

In turn, these bloggers and media outlets blast out their own rendition and before you know it the misinformation is bouncing around the internet and inboxes all over the world.

 

 

Researchers at Thinkprogress have released the list of climate doubters Morano relies on for his echo chamber. According to Brad Johnson who wrote the Thinkprogress article:

“Promoted on the Drudge Report and Fox News, Morano’s moronic misinformation enters mainstream discourse through columns by Barnes, George Will, Robert Samuelson, and others. Many in the Morano gang are funded by right-wing think tanks, though a few are committed activists, conspiracy theorists who believe their homebrew interpretations of climate data. Others are aging scientists with strong conservative beliefs, motivating them to challenge action on global warming not because they disbelieve its existence, but because they are ideologically opposed to regulation of pollution.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself. You can download a PDF version of the Morano list here: Morano Denier Gang. We’ll be adding more information about each of the individuals and their organizations over the coming days.

A New List of Climate Quibblers: Paid Deniers, Dead Guys and Ill-informed Fellow Travellers

The latest list of “650 International Scientists (who) Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming” seems to be more of the same: dead guys (Fred Seitz, Marcel Leroux, Reid Bryson …), paid deniers (Fred Singer, Tim Ball, Sallie Baliunas …), and a much larger group of weather forecasters and “experts” from unrelated fields, many of whom (eg., Edward Wegman) don’t even disagree with the scientific consensus that human activity is causing climate change.

The apparent author of this list, Swiftboater Marc Morano, even included the names of Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger, an historian and an anthropologist who have made themselves famous by advocating for renewed and more vigorous policy action against the threat of climate change.

Poznan: (Insincere) Praise for Marc Morano

Climate change denier extraordinaire Marc Morano dropped a news release on my desk this morning and smiled broadly when I said, “Hey, are you Morano?” - a smile that turned more sardonic when I told him who was asking.

Morano, whose political bona fides include inventing the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth when he was working the hill for Rush Limbaugh, has been reduced to tagging along with the staff of Barbara Boxer, the popular Democratic Senator from California who pushed Morano’s boss, James Inhofe, out of his old sinecure as chair of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works.

Now, Morano gets to produce the “minority report,” a document of increasing irrelevance as the incoming administration firms up its climate change policy.

The Global Warming Deniers Are Restless

Just when you thought it was safe to acknowledge the unequivocal reality of global warming…..

Just when you thought the U.S. government was ready to admit that it has a serious emissions problem, and do something about it….

Just when you thought the skeptic party was over…

No way: There has been a strong run of nonsense from global warming “skeptics” and deniers lately. They are not ashamed, and they are not changing their tune. In fact, it sounds like they are gearing up for the next battle.
