How it’s Done. Mann v Morano on BBC
February 1, 2014
Leading climate scientists do not, as a rule, debate with climate deniers, for the same reason that Richard Dawkins does not debate with Creationists – the mere fact of appearing on the same platform elevates the creationists, and debases the science.
In this case, Dr. Michael Mann was invited on a BBC broadcast without the explicit understanding that climate denier Marc Morano would be on the same broadcast on a separate line.
You can listen to this 6 minute segment, and hear Morano’s well practiced Gish Galloping bluster, while Mann listens quietly until the host has to silence Morano.
Then listen for the Mike to quietly, methodically, open a can of calm, laser-focused whupass.
For another approach, see my own interview with Morano at the 2012 Heartland conference below.
