Marc Morano Interview: “We may lose the war in the end”

May 30, 2012

I bumped into Marc Morano early on at last week’s Heartland Institute Denia-palooza. Much to my surprise, despite the fact I’ve lambasted him a number of times in videos,  he readily agreed to an interview. A fixture on the Fox News/right wing radio anti science circuit, former advisor to Senator James Inhofe, or as I like to call him, Senator “I’m not in denial but there have never been any gay people in my family” Inhofe, Morano touched on a variety of topics, but a particular message came thru, which he repeated in his address to the group later in the day.

That is, he does not trust Mitt Romney.

Well, there – something we have in common.

More than that, Morano expressed concern to me, and to the group, that the climate denial side could have won many battles but still “lose the war”, if the EPA is successful in promulgating CO2 regulations, and if Romney were elected and reverted to views he has claimed to hold in the past on climate change. (see post below)

There was quite a bit more to the interview, which I may post in coming days.

By the way, if you want to give Morano, and Heartland, even more to worry about, consider signing the “Push Button, Save Planet’ Petition from Climate Reality – which will send a message to President Obama, supporting the EPA’s regulation of carbon pollution.

    “Reversal in Australia of the carbon tax probably?” – Marc Morano :

    Don’t count your chickens before they hatch, Mr Morano.

    The Aussie federal election is 2013 & things can change quickly in politics. The Aussie carbon price (“tax” turning into an Emissions Trading Scheme like theproposed cap’n’trade) comes into effect July ’12. I think Opposition leader (& climate contrarian) Tony Abbott’s huge scare campaign against it versus the reality will leave him looking very silly – & perhaps even get dumped as leader.

    Repealing the carbon price won’t be easy & may well not end up happening whoever wins.
