ABC News Global Warming Debate Part 1

ABC News Global Warming Debate Part 2

Anchored by Vicki Mabrey – ABC News Correspondent – Original Air Date: February 15, 2010

Marc Morano, Executive Editor, Climate Depot Versus Daniel Weiss, Director for Climate Strategy, Center for American Progress ([email protected])

Selected ABC News Nightline excerpts of highly contentious debate shout-fest:

Daniel Weiss: Blizzards are “consistent with what scientists had predicted would happen under global warming…”

Marc Morano Counter: “It’s consistent with climate astrology, basically it’s a horoscope, anything that happens, it’s ‘Hey I think my horoscope predicted it.’ It is the height of silliness to even link the two, and [Dan Weiss] should be embarrassed.”

Morano: “The UN IPCC was a political organization masquerading as a science group. It’s been exposed. And now you have Center for American Progress — which Dan Weiss is member of — you have them linking and questioning whether the Minneapolis bridge collapse cold have been caused by global warming. (See: Joe Romm of Center for American Progress questioned whether the bridge collapse in Minnesota was a result of man-made global warming) This is sub-prime science and in a different age we would be laughing at people making these kinds of claims.”

Morano: Climategate is wonderful — to watch, the upper echelon of the UN, including the chairman of the climate panel exposed — the corruption, the resignations, the calls by top UN scientists for their leader (Pachauri) to resign, the embarrassment, the dozens of gates springing up, the fraudulent data they presented in the UN climate reports.

ABC News Reporter Vicki Mabrey: What is their to be gained [by promoting global warming]?

Morano: “They are talking about a global Co2 tax, they are talking global Co2 budget for every man women and child on the planet. Guess what, run by an international body, with tons of money; tons of bureaucratic bean counters in charge they get to manage a ‘manufacture crisis.’”

Weiss to Morano: “Next you are going to be telling us the moon landing was staged.”

Morano Counter: “Monowalkers are the skeptics. That is a silly analogy, you have been exposed again.” (See: Moonwalkers Defy Gore’s Claim That Climate Skeptics Are Akin To Those Who Believe Moon Landing was ‘Staged’ – July 3, 2009)

Morano: “The whole idea of a ‘consensus’ was manufactured by a UN political organization. ABC News s not innocent here. [ABC News climate reporter] Bill Blakemore in 2006 did a survey that said ABC News could not find any debate on global warming. [ABC News] put its news organization behind his reporting. It’s time for Bill Blakemore and ABC News to issue a mea culpa as the entire [global warming] movement collapses.” (See: 2006: ABC’s Bill Blakemore: ‘After extensive searches, ABC News has found no such [scientific] debate’ on global warming)

Weiss responds to Morano’s Blakemore comments: Morano “sees conspiracies everywhere, conspiracy so big that even ABC News is part of it.”

Morano Counter: “That’s called bad reporting, not a conspiracy.”

Morano: “Carbon based energy has been one of the greatest liberators of mankind in the history of our planet. It has literally brought people out of a short, nasty and brutish existence. When you look at the developing world 1.6 billion people do not have running water, electricity, and the best way to advance that is carbon based energy. It is a perversion to go into the [developing world] and think they will have solar panels on their huts made of dung, or they are going to have windmills that are going to power 1.6 billion people without electricity. That is where the morality of this issue comes in. (See: Morano warns of ‘a new form of colonialism’: ‘The white wealthy western world is telling 1.6 billion people in developing world — predominantly of color — that they have to have their economies managed, their energy managed all because of climate fears’ – December 10, 2009)

ABC News Reporter Vicki Mabrey to Morano: “What happens if you are wrong?”

Morano: “Great question. Absolutely nothing. Even if the UN and Al Gore were right, their solutions would not even have a detectable impact on temperature. The cap and trade bill in before the US senate, not even a measurable impact on temperatures, despite the fact that Obama seems to believe it will cool our planet 4 or 5 degrees. (See: Climate Depot Editorial: Climate bill offers (costly) non-solutions to problems that don’t even exist – No detectable climate impact: ‘If we actually faced a man-made ‘climate crisis’, we would all be doomed’ – June 26, 2009 & Obama claims U.S. climate bill will leave Earth 4 to 5 degrees cooler! – June 15, 2009 – Excerpt: “A long-term benefit is we’re leaving a planet to our children that isn’t four or five degrees hotter.”)

Morano: “The idea of an insurance policy against warming through cap-and-trade or UN policies is the equivalent of buying an insurance policy on your home that costs nearly as much as your home and has virtually no payout if your home burns down. If you want that kind of insurance policy, then the UN and Congress have a deal for you.”

ABC News Vicki Mabrey: Thank you so much for this lively incredible discussion.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
