Longtime Clinton ally Lanny Davis is due to release a book in October that excoriates former FBI Director James Comey for his role in the 2016 election.
Davis' work aims to trace Hillary Clinton's email controversy and the timeline from Comey's July 2016 congressional testimony in which he declared the end of an investigation into her emails to his bombshell announcement just before the November election that the investigation had been reopened.
"In 'The Unmaking of the President 2016,' attorney Lanny J. Davis shows how Comey's misguided announcement — just eleven days before the election — swung a significant number of voters toward Trump, winning him an Electoral College victory — and the presidency," the book's publisher, Simon and Schuster, said.
Davis argues that state-by-state polling data shows that had the election been held on Oct. 27, Hillary Clinton would not only have won the popular vote but also the Electoral College by a substantial margin.
He further contends that despite Trump's behavior, Russian interference, and reports of Clinton's gaining traction in states like Georgia, Arizona, and even Texas, it was Comey's Oct. 28 letter about the Clinton investigation that completely reshaped the landscape of the election in favor of Trump.
"Davis proves with raw, indisputable data how Comey's October surprise changed American history in the blink of an eye and cost Hillary Clinton the presidency," Simon and Schuster said.
The book is scheduled to be released Oct. 24.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uqT2aCbT4ks

Death Valley Sets New Global Record for Hottest Single Month
Death Valley, California, has just experienced the hottest month reliably measured anywhere on Earth, with a scorching average temperature in July of 107.4°F.https://www.desmogblog.com/marc-morano
B.A., Political Science, George Mason University. 
Marc Morano is the executive director and chief correspondent of ClimateDepot.com, a project of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT). Morano is also the Communications Director at CFACT, a conservative think-tank in Washington D.C. that has received funding from ExxonMobil, Chevron, as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars from foundations associated with Richard Mellon Scaife. According to 2011 IRS Forms (PDF), Morano was the highest paid staff member with a salary of $150,000 per year. Morano's blog Climate Depot regularly publishes articles questioning man-made global warming. , , , 
Although he has no scientific expertise in the area, Morano has become a prominent climate change denier. He has been called “the Matt Drudge of climate denial,” the “King of the skeptics,” and a “central cell of the climate-denial machine.” He was also listed as one of 17 top “climate killers” by Rolling Stone Magazine. He has accused climate scientists of “fear mongering,” and has claimed that proponents of man-made global warming are “funded to the tune of $50 billion.” , 
From 2006 to 2009, Morano was the communications director for Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), the minority chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Prior to the last election, Inhofe was the majority chair of the EPW committee. In the 2002 election cycle, Senator Inhofe received more in donations from the oil and gas sector than any other Senator. Sen. Inhofe is known for his infamous quote that the threat of catastrophic global warming is the “greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” and as his communications director, Mornano has spent his recent years propagating this message. 
According to Marc Morano's archived profile at the Heartland Institute, “Morano joined the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee as the majority Communications Director in June 2006 after a decade and a half as a working journalist, documentary maker, radio talk show host, and national television correspondent.” Apart from being a regular speaker at the Heartland Institute's International Conference on Climate Change, Morano is also listed on their website as a “global warming expert.” , 
Prior to working for Senator Inhofe, Morano was a journalist with Cybercast News Service, which is owned and operated by the Media Research Center (MRC). The MRC is supported in part by right-wing foundations and funding from industry, including over $200,000 from ExxonMobil. From 1992 to 1996, Morano also worked as a producer for the Rush Limbaugh Television Show and was known as “Limbaugh's man in Washington.” Morano often appears on Fox news to promote his ideas regarding climate change. 
Stance on Climate Change
“The bottom line is, not only do we not face a climate crisis, but if we face a climate crisis what Congress is proposing, what the United Nations is proposing, is scientifically meaningless. It would have no detectable impact. So we'd all be doomed if we had to rely on them for a solution. 
Marc Morano has claimed that today's youth are being indoctrinated by the environmental movement:
“Accurate climate science is being suppressed, meaning the kids don’t get to hear opposing views,” said Morano. “It’s narrative-crafting, the same kind of thing you would expect from any partisan campaign group.
“And then you add in the media, with people like Leonardo DiCaprio and Laurie David telling kids if you’re a global warming skeptic, you are not cool. I guess they’re afraid the kids will instantly become skeptics if they hear any opposing ideas.” 
Morano on Pope Francis and climate change: “The Pope has picked a contentious scientific issue which – now going on almost two decades of no global warming, sea ice recovering, sea level rise actually decelerating, On every metric from polar bears on down, the global warming narrative has weakened. And to now have the Pope jump on that bandwagon would sow confusion among Catholics.” 
“I'm not a scientist, but I do play one on TV occasionally. Ok, hell, more than occasionally. […] You go up against scientists, most of them are going to be in their own little sort of policy wonk world or area of expertise. Very arcane, very hard to understand, hard to explain, and very boring.” [49:22 - Merchants of Doubt]
“Gridlock is the greatest friend a global warming skeptic has because that's all you really want. There's no legislation we're championing. We're the negative force. We're just trying to stop stuff.”  [53:33 - Merchants of Doubt]
“I don't know what [Ben Santer's] complaint is. But I'll give you the philosophy behind it […] I think people should be thanking me. I was doing a service. And people go like 'oh, they're death threats.' Well, I get death threats. I enjoy them. I usually email back. So I think it was one of the healthiest things that could have happened in the climate debate. I make no apologies for it. I still do it and I enjoy doing it.”  [51:24 - Merchants of Doubt]
“I am jealous of the leadership of Canada & Australia. It is so sad being in America – The rest of the world is abandoning carbon pricing as the U.S. is jumping right in.” 
Marc Morano appeared at the COP19 United Nations climate talks in Warsaw, Poland, alongside the executive director of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, Craig Rucker:
“Coal is the moral choice, particularly for the developing world… The model for the world right now should be Australia. Australia gets it. Scientifically they get it, politically they get it and particularly when it comes to the United Nations, they get it. They are pulling out of this, they are repealing their carbon tax and Canada seems to be intrigued by what Australia is doing.” 
August 21, 2013
“The IPCC summary for policymakers is used to scare politicians and goad the public into action. The UN is all about politics.” 
August 20, 2013
In reference to the IPCC's AR5 leaked climate report, on August 20, 2013, just three months before the UNIPCC's COP19 in Warsaw, Poland, Morano says on FoxNews.com:
“All of these fatuous figures are pulled out of the air to support the IPCC ideologies and not based upon any statistical analysis or science.” 
Watch Peter Sinclair interview Marc Morano at the Heartland Institute ICCC7 conference in 2012:
In response to a quote by New York Times Journalist Andrew Revkin, which describes Climate Depot as “divisive and toxic,” Morano responded:
“'Toxic'? If by 'divisive and toxic' you mean Climate Depot is serving to derail the man-made global warming agenda and its sub-prime science and politics, I happily plead guilty!” 
With reference to scientists involved in the “climategate” controversy (all of which were since publicly exonerated), Morano has said:
“I seriously believe we should kick them while they're down. They deserve to be publicly flogged.” 
“The goal [of Climate Depot] is to expand on key elements from the award-winning Senate EPW website and quite simply revolutionize climate and environmental news dissemination. Unlike much of the establishment media, CFACT's news outlet will provide the public with links to all sides of the climate and environmental debate, with links to Gore's blog, environmental groups, the United Nations, as well as skeptical voices. It is very hard to get accurate information on global warming and environmental issues. 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.”  (Note, the EPW website is also Senator James Inhofe's Press Blog).'
April 9, 2009
“Even in the Senate, I’d put up any of the stories we did against any pablum Time or Newsweek has put out on global warming. We’d link to the other side; we’d present their arguments. They do one-sided screeds.” 
Addressing the 9th Annual National Freedom21 Conference in 2008, Morano said:
“I like to joke that Inhofe is as far left as I'll go for an employer.” 
As promoted by CFACT mailer, Morano is scheduled to appear at the Australian premier of Climate Hustle, accompanied in Australia by CFACT's Executive Director Craig Rucker, as well as CFACT president and founder David Rothbard. Event dates were also listed on Joanne Nova's blog: , ,

Before the film's Australian debut, Climate scientist Professor Will Steffen reviewed portions of the film for DeSmog. 
Steffen is an emeritus professor at Australian National University and a member of the not-for-profit Climate Council. He said: “This is just the usual rubbish from the usual suspects - a re-hash of misleading and downright incorrect arguments that denialists have trotted out for a long time.” 
Reviewing a section that downplays the role of carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, Steffen noted it “misrepresents how the carbon cycle works” by ignoring how oceans and land absorb CO2 – a very basic and well-known mechanism in the carbon cycle. 
Steffen added, “What the film didn't say is that both oxygen and nitrogen, which comprise about 99 per cent of the atmospheric gases, are transparent to UV, visible and heat radiation. They don't play a role in the energy balance at the Earth's surface.” 
Dr. Andrew King, a climate scientist at Monash University in Melbourne, also had an opportunity to look at the film. He described the section on carbon dioxide's role as “muddled.” 
“Whilst there are certainly other potential drivers of changes in the climate we know that over the last century we have greatly increased the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere and, through detection and attribution analyses, we know that the rising levels of atmospheric CO2 and other greenhouse gases have driven the rise in global temperature,” King said. “Changes in other potential drivers, like solar activity, simply can't explain the 1C rise in global temperature we have observed.” 
Craig Rucker said: “CFACT has a lot of fans and followers in Australia who have long wanted us to make a trip. We were beckoned to come and are excited to premiere our film Climate Hustle.” 
Nova also listed some groups involved in organising the trip included the Galileo Movement (once managed by current One Nation Senator Malcolm Roberts), the Australian Environment Foundation, the Australian Tax Payers Alliance, and the Australian Institute for Progress.

Marc Morano was an attendee at a private meeting also attended by Trump's EPA Transition team lead Myron Ebell on Capitol Hill. E&E News reported that the event was not open to the public or to the press and Ebell refused to give any details. The event was hosted by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) and held in the hearing room of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee. The EPW committee is chaired by Senator James Inhofe who, like Trump, has described human-caused climate change as a hoax. 
DeSmog reported that the event featured the “Who's Who of Climate Science Deniers.” Australian Senator Malcolm Roberts, who spoke at the event, also wrote that the meeting was a gathering of the Cooler Heads Coalition and listed some of the participants on Facebook: ,

Names mentioned above included:
Tom de Weise
DeSmog also noted that three of the attendees—Myron Ebell, Randy Randol, and Steve Milloy—had all been part of the Global Climate Science Communications Team in the late 1990s, a group organized by the American Petroleum Institute. According to an early memo, the group said “victory will be achieved when […] Average citizens 'understand' (recognize) uncertainties in climate science; recognition of uncertainties becomes part of the 'conventional wisdom'.” 
September 1, 2016
Marc Morano spoke at the Uintah Basin Energy Summit, which has prompted some controversy from environmental groups: 
“I could see it if an oil and gas association brought him in to speak to their skepticsim about the climate change argument,” Sat Matt Pacenza, executive director of HEAL Utah. “But this is a government-sponsored event, and he is being paid with taxpayer money.” 
The state Office of Energy Development, which is also sponsoring the conference, noted in a statement: “our views on climate change do not align with those of Mr. Morano” reports KUER News.
Others, including Utah State University physicist, Rob Davies, have doubted Marno's message. Davies described Morano as a “paid confusionist.” Davis describes it as a missed opportunity for eastern Utah and the energy industry: 
“They deserve really good information as to what the potential changes are and why,” says Davies. “And I just can’t see someone like Marc Morano bringing constructive, good information to those communities on this topic.” 
Barry Bickmore, a Brigham Young University geologist, shares Davis's view:
“They’re just bringing in somebody who can give them a really good sales pitch for what they want to hear,” says Bickmore. “In a way, though, it’s sad because they could be preparing for the inevitable transition away from fossil fuels.” 
Joshua Murdock provides coverage of the Energy Summit in an article at UB Media where he notes that a number of climate experts dispute claims made by Morano. He comments on Morano's presentation: “Morano said that extreme weather is declining around the globe and that the link between climate change, which he says is a myth, and extreme weather is fabricated. Morano then said that the oft-touted 97 percent consensus on climate change being real and anthropogenic (meaning human-caused) was illegitimate because less than 100 scientists were polled to arrive at the 97 percent value.” 
He notes that Gavin Schmidt, the director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Science, offers evidence contrary to Morano's claims:”There’s different kinds of extreme weather, some of which is increasing because of climate change, some of which is decreasing, some of which we’re not quite sure what the impacts are,” Schmidt said. Pennsylvania State University Evan Pugh Geoscience Professor Richard Alley, Ph.D. also counters a number of Morano's statements. While Morano made claims that increasing polar bear populations and a growth of Arctic sea ice rebut evidence of climate change, Alley and Schmidt note that polar bear populations have increased largely due to new restrictions on hunting, and that sea ice continues to decrease: 
“We’re looking at unprecedented levels of low sea ice,” said Schmidt, adding that 2016 would likely feature the second-lowest amount of ice in recorded history and that ice amounts are trending sharply downward. “The statistically significant long-term trend shows Arctic sea ice is shrinking, especially in late summer, with high confidence,” said Alley. “There are year-to-year variations, but the climate is for shrinkage.” Schmidt added that polar bear populations are not evidence of climate change, but rather something that could be impacted by climate change.
“The data are very strong that the planet is warming, as shown by analyses by NASA, NOAA, the Berkeley Earth group and others, by data from thermometers in the air including those well away from cities, thermometers in the ocean and in the ground, taken up by balloons and looking down from space, and changes in temperature-sensitive snow and ice and plants and animals,” said Alley. “There is year-to-year variability, but averaging across that 'weather,' the signal of climatic warming is very clear.” 
Marc Morano is the vice president of a group titled Climate Exit (Clexit), and a member of the “Clexit Committee.” According to Clexit's founding statement (PDF), “The world must abandon this suicidal Global Warming crusade. Man does not and cannot control the climate.” , 
As Desmog reports, another key member of Clexit's “60 well-informed science, business and economic leaders” is Hugh Morgan, a former board member of the Reserve Bank of Australia and former CEO of Western Mining Corporation with close ties to Australia's Liberal party. , 
According to Clexit's founding statement:
“If the Paris climate accord is ratified, or enforced locally by compliant governments, it will strangle the leading economies of the world with pointless carbon taxes and costly climate and energy policies, all with no sound basis in evidence or science […]” 
June 22, 2016
After a Massachusetts court sided with a group of teenagers by ruling the state had failed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,  Marc Morano claimed that today's youth are being indoctrinated by the environmental movement: 
“It’s a brilliant tactic by the environmental left,” Morano said. “It gives the kids something tangible they can hold on to and it radicalizes them about the environment early on. However, kids are being spoon-fed a version of science that does not comport with reality.
“The environmental left carefully censors or bans opposing ideas, like in Portland, Oregon, where you now can’t even mention in school textbooks climate change may not be as bad as we thought,” Morano said.
“Accurate climate science is being suppressed, meaning the kids don’t get to hear opposing views,” said Morano. “It’s narrative-crafting, the same kind of thing you would expect from any partisan campaign group.
“And then you add in the media, with people like Leonardo DiCaprio and Laurie David telling kids if you’re a global warming skeptic, you are not cool,” said Morano. “I guess they’re afraid the kids will instantly become skeptics if they hear any opposing ideas.”
May 2, 2016
Marc Morano's Climate Hustle was released in U.S. theatres. The Washington Times reports John Coleman defended the film after Bill Nye described it as “not in our national interest and the world’s interest.” Anthony Watts (who is listed among the film's “key scientists”) also gave the film a positive review. 
“I have always been amazed that anyone would pay attention to Bill Nye, a pretend scientist in a bow tie,” Coleman said on Climate Depot.
“As a man who has studied the science of meteorology for over 60 years and received the [American Meteorological Society] Meteorologist of the Year award, I am totally offended that Nye gets the press and media attention he does,” Coleman said. “And I am rooting for the ‘Climate Hustle’ film to become a huge hit — bigger than ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ by Al Gore.” 
The film was produced by the Committee for Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) and CDR Communications. As noted at Desmog's project, ClimateHustler.org, CFACT has received funding from ExxonMobil, Chevron, as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars from foundations associated with Richard Mellon Scaife. CFACT has also received at least $7.8 million in “dark money” through DonorsTrust and Donors Capital Fund. , 
CDR Communications was behind the 2010 video by the Cornwall Alliance titled Resisting the Green Dragon, which claimed environmentalism was a “false religion” and a “global government” power grab. Chris Rogers of CDR Communictions is also chairman of The James Partnership, the umbrella arm that includes the Cornwall Alliance as one of its projects and pays the salary of Calvin Beisner, Cornwall’s founder and spokesperson. 
Individuals listed as “Key Scientists” in Climate Hustle include the following: 
Daniel B. Botkin
Don J. Easterbrook
Robert M. Carter
William M. Briggs
Roger Pielke Sr.
Patrick J. Michaels
Lord Christopher Monckton
Marc Morano refused $20,000 in bets from science presenter Bill Nye. Nye said he was willing to bet Morano that 2016 would be one of the ten hottest years on record. He also offered a bet the current decade would be the hottest on record. 
Morano turned down both bets, telling DeSmog it was “silly” to take a bet when it was “obvious” the official records would show more global warming. 
December 10, 2015
The New Republic's Alex Newman interviewed Marc Morano during the COP21 climate talks in Paris. Morano declared that he and other climate deniers came to Paris to be “the turd in the punch bowl.”
“We planned this during this week because the whole world will be watching the UN and the climate, so we wanted to be essentially, well for lack of a better word, the turd in the punch bowl, and that's what we are here,” Morano said in the interview, while dressed in a “climate monarch” costume.
December 7, 2015
Marc Morano's documentary film, Climate Hustle, debuted December 7, 2015 in Paris, France during the COP21 United Nations summit on climate change. , , 
“We are putting together what I think is the most comprehensive, unique, entertaining and humorous climate documentary that has ever been done or attempted,” Morano had said before the film was released. 
“The reason that this is a unique film,” Morano has said, “is that we are going for a pop culture-friendly… sarcastic approach and we actually give both sides in this movie.”
In an interview with Ezra Levant, Morano said:
“I am not interviewing a lot of the main climate sceptical scientists because I feel like they have been interviewed by many other people and their stories have been told. I am trying to find another layer of scientist whose stories have not been out there yet. You will see a lot of new names in this.” 
See a preview of the film below:
At the Paris premier of the film, reporters from Desmog and the Irish Times were denied entrance after having their RSVPs accepted days earlier.

Marc Morano was a speaker on Panel 14: “Action Items for Policymakers,” at the Heartland Institute’s Tenth International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC10) in Washington, D.C., with Myron Ebell and Bette Grande. 
At the event, Greenpeace investigator Connor Gibson questioned Marc Morano's role in the national climate discussion, illustrating his role in attacking the science, attacking anyone who questions his relevance in conversations around climate change.
At minute 2:48 of Greenpeace's interview with Morano, he aggressively rejects documentation that 2014 was the hottest year on record.
2014 was the hottest year of global temperatures recorded in human history, as studied and published by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), and reported worldwide (BBC, TIME, Scientific American). The AP clarification statement (not a retraction) that Morano mentions did not alter the conclusion of the NASA study, nor the wide body of evidence published by scientists since the 1970s.

May 12, 2015
Marc Morano signed an open letter to Pope Francis on climate change inviting the Pope to reconsider his views on climate change before his encyclical letter on the environment. 
The open letter was coordinated and signed by Calvin Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance. According to the letter, “Good climate policy must recognize human exceptionalism, the God-given call for human persons to 'have dominion' in the natural world (Genesis 1:28), and the need to protect the poor from harm, including actions that hinder their ascent out of poverty.” 
April 28, 2015
Marc Morano travels to Vatican City, Italy, with Christopher Monckton and Calvin Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance, for a press event hosted by the Heartland Institute in order to “dissuade Pope Francis from lending his moral authority to the politicized and unscientific climate agenda of the United Nations,” according to a Heartland Institute press release. , 
DeSmogUK attended the event and noted that “just nine journalists made up the audience at Heartland's press conference”:
Morano's full PDF presentation can be viewed online at the Heartland Institute website. According to Morano, “The Vatican and the Pope should be arguing that fossil fuels are the moral choice for the developing world.” His full presentation can be viewed below via The Heartland Institute's YouTube channel. 
Marc Morano is one of several climate change skeptics cc'd on an email from S. Fred Singer in hopes of countering the documentary film “Merchants of Doubt,” which exposes the network of climate change skeptics and deniers trying to delay legislative action on climate change. 
The October, 2014 email was leaked to journalists before the documentary was released. “Can I sue for damages?” Singer asked in the email. “Can we get an injunction against the documentary?”
InsideClimate News reports in their article “Leaked Email Reveals Who's Who List of Climate Denialists,” how “Many of those copied on the email thread, such as Singer and communications specialist Steven Milloy, have financial ties to the tobacco, chemical, and oil and gas industries and have worked to defend them since the 1990s.” 
InsideClimate News also documented all those who were cc'd on the email, including the following skeptics and groups:
Joseph “Joe” Bast
David Paul Driessen
Patrick J. Michaels
Steven J. Milloy
Roger Pielke Sr. (Or Roger Pielke Jr. - Unclear in Email)
Thomas P. Sheahen

The Heartland Institute's “environmental science and policy experts” published comments following the release of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) “Synthesis Report,” completing the IPCC's Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). 
Marc Morano wrote it was “hard to fathom yet another IPCC report attempting to crank up climate fears,” and the new IPCC report was “boring, boring, boring,” noting he was having “extreme difficulty covering the latest IPCC report. Please give us something new and different!” 
October 9, 2014
Marc Morano is quoted in the Heartland Institute's press release, “Heartland Institute Climate Experts Comment on 18 Straight Years of No Global Warming,” which states “the global mean surface temperature has not risen for 18 consecutive years. This extends the so-called 'pause' in global warming to a new record, one not predicted by the climate models of the United Nations' International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).”  Morano writes:
“As the global temperature standstill hits 18 years beyond what the models predicted the climate activists are left with more than 50 excuses to explain why temperatures are not rising.
“The ‘pause’ reveals that it is scientifically obvious that carbon dioxide is not the overriding driver of the climate. The global warming movement has morphed into a coalition of ‘climate cause deniers.’ They deny the hundreds of causes and variables of climate change and pretend CO2 is the ‘control knob’ overriding all the others.” 
September 25, 2014
Marc Morano attends the “At the Crossroads; Energy & Climate Policy Summit” in Houston, Texas, hosted by the Texas Public Policy Foundation and The Heritage Foundation. Morano presents in “Panel III: History, Politics, and Economics,” with Rupert Darwall and Stephen Moore. 
August 30, 2014
Marc Morano, James Taylor, William O’Keefe, Tim Phillips, and S. Fred Singer were all featured in the film Merchants of Doubt, based on the 2010 non-fiction book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway. According to the film's synopsis on its website, Merchants of Doubt “lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver- tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities – yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change.” 
In the film, Morano talks about how he has posted climate scientists' email addresses on his website, including a former IPCC lead author Ben Santer, which incited hate mail and death threats asThe Washington Post reported: , 
“[Morano] attacked me in a very unjust way on his website and posted my email address, and in my view such behavior is basically an incitement to hatred,” Santer said
“Those [emails] are of concern, particularly when you have loved ones and it's clear that some of these people out there are not very rational.” 
Earlier in the documentary, Morano describes how he intentionally goes after climate change scientists:
“You can't be afraid of the absolute hand-to-hand combat, metaphorically, and you've got to name names and you've got to go after individuals. You can't just go after a system. And that's what I think I enjoy the most; is going after the individuals. Because that's where something lives or dies.” [49:49]
He also discussed Santer's email:
“I'd say it's possible I posted Ben Santer's email in the early days of Climate Depot, maybe the first six months. He's far from the only one I've done that to.”  - [50:54]
Katharine Hayhoe (another climate scientist) talking about hate emails and death threats she receives, says that “sometimes it's one a week. Sometimes when your email address gets posted on [Marc] Morano's website, it's 200 or more in a day.”  - [51:13]
Ben Santer: “I think the most disturbing emails or letters were ones that suggest there will be direct physical harm to you and to your family.”  - [51:31]
Morano's response: “I don't know what his complaint is. But I'll give you the philosophy behind it […] I think people should be thanking me. I was doing a service. And people go like 'oh, they're death threats.' Well, I get death threats. I enjoy them. I usually email back. So I think it was one of the healthiest things that could have happened in the climate debate. I make no apologies for it. I still do it and I enjoy doing it.”
Morano also discussed his early days working with Senator John Inhofe and how that influenced the formation of Climate Depot:
“I got a call from Senator James Inhofe's office to be the new communications director. It was probably at the lowest point, when I started in June 2006, for global warming skeptics.”
“[After the release of Al Gore's film] we decided for Inhofe to go on the offensive. […] We went after James Hansen and Michael Oppenheimer and had a lot of fun with it. We mocked and ridiculed James Hansen.
I was authorized—I couldn't believe they let me do this—I did a two-part, probably ten thousand word, unbelievably scathing critique on James Hansen. I'm not going to question his scientific work, but in terms of influencing the public. And actually, his scientific work isn't really in question. It's more of his public claims and publicity and interviews.
I still felt restrained, so I started doing what I called 'the underground newsletters' which went much further than anything else, we had a lot more fun, a lot more humour, wit, sarcasm, and sometimes nastiness. That went out, and that became the basis for ClimateDepot.”  - [47:14]

Morano debates with China Central Television (CCTV) anchor Anand Naidoo, a week following the release of the US government's National Climate Assessment.
When Morano was asked about his qualifications for speaking about an issue such as climate science, he responded by saying, “I have a background in political science, which is the perfect qualification to examine global warming.” 
August 21, 2013
Marc Marano releases a “sampling of what current and former UN scientists have to say about the UN's climate claims and its scientific method” on Climate Depot, a few months before the UNIPCC's 19th COP in Warsaw, Poland. The “claims” come from well-known climate skeptics such as Vincent Gray, Kiminori Itoh, Arun Ahluwalia, Kenneth Green, John Christy and others. 
December 27, 2012
Marc Marano was named “2012 Climate Change Misinformer of the Year” by the conservative watchdog group Media Matters for America. According to Media Matters, he has earned this title due to his “history of smears and lies” including his work running ClimateDepot.com, a group funded by the Heartland Institute. 
December 5, 2012
Piers Morgan hosted a CNN “Debate” on climate change between Marc Morano and Bill Nye. CNN did not disclose that Morano doesn't have a scientific background in the area, and that he has received funding from an organization linked to industry interests. During the segman, Morano cliams that “we've gone 16 years without global warming according to UN data.” 
November 26, 2012
As one of five appearances in 2012, Marc Morano spoke on the Fox News program your World with Neil Cavuto to discuss his views on climate change. On this date, Morano suggests that there is no link between extreme weather and climate change, saying that “every time there's a bad weather event the global warming activists think we need more taxes and regulations to somehow stop bad weather. This is a primitive form of science.” 
He also compares climate models to end-of-the-world predictions, saying that “This has now reached the level of the Mayan calendar and Nostradamus when it comes to science.”
August 2, 2012
In an appearance on the Fox News program Your World with Neil Cavuto, Morano clamed that modern climate change predictions are failing and that they are akin to “medieval witchcraft, where we used to blame witches for controlling the weather.”
He also said that climate change has been supposedly proven to be based on “subprime science,” and that the “whole movement has collapsed.” 
July 6, 2012
Morano appeared on the Fox News program Your World with Neil Cavuto and claimed that the goal of UN climate negotiations is “global governance” and the redistribution of wealth. “It`s very Orwellian,” he said. “This is stuff Orwell couldn't conceive of, your home energy use, your travel, your train travel, airline travel all monitored by international agencies. It`s not the stuff of science fiction.” 
May 21 - 23, 2012
Marc Morano was a speaker at the Heartland Institute's 7th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC7). In his speech, Morano raised “concerns” over the fact that some of Mitt Romney's advisors accepted the mainstream science of climate change. He added that “It's very frustrating for global warming skeptics when you realize who is the Republican standard bearer right now and how far we've come […] We need a president who actually can stand up to this whole global warming brigade.” 
DeSmogBlog researched the co-sponsors behind Heartland's ICCC7 and found that they had collectively received over $67 million from ExxonMobil, the Koch Brothers and the conservative Scaife family foundations.
May 15, 2012
Marc Morano defended the Heartland Institute's unsuccessful billboard campaign that compared those who believe in man-made climate change to individuals associated with mass murder and terrorism. The billboards featured pictures of Ted Kaczynski, Charles Manson and Fidel Castro next to the text “I still believe in Global Warming. Do you?” The Heartland Institute was forced to take down the controversial billboards shortly after they were unveiled. , 
Morano described the billboard campaign as “edgy”:
“This is so silly. Every day now, skeptics are compared to Holocaust deniers and the media yawns. But Heartland does an edgy billboard accurately reflecting the views of those featured in it and the media acts as though they are offended?” 
December 2011 – September 2012
Marc Morano appeared numerous times on the Alex Jones' show which has popularly discussed conspiracy theories. The following is a summary of Morano's appearances provided by Media Matters for America as part of their profile on Marc Morano as “Climate Change Misinformer Of The Year”: 
After Morano predicted that Romney would win the election, Jones said that Obama might “start a war” to win re-election. Morano responded, “they could try to do that, yes, that's always possible.” [YouTube video posted by TheAlexJonesChannel, 9/1/12]
Morano claimed that the UN climate summit in Rio was pushing a “global EPA” that is “going to be able to police the world.” He added, “Think of our own EPA that speaks French. If that doesn't send chills up your spine, I don't know what will.” [YouTube video posted by TheAlexJonesChannel, 2/7/12]
Morano claimed scientists used “data that had been monkeyed around with” to state that July 2012 was the hottest month on record in the continental U.S. [YouTube video posted by TheAlexJonesChannel, [9/1/12]
Morano claimed that the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a leading body of thousands of scientists assessing climate change, is a “small group of scientists” that was “blocking studies that disagreed, blocking data that disagreed, and then essentially, sometimes, generating studies that did.” He later added that scientists are trying to “cover up the fact that sea level not only isn't accelerating, it's dropping.” In fact, sea levels have been rising for decades and have studies indicate this rise is accelerating. [YouTube video posted by TheAlexJonesChannel, 2/8/12]
Morano said that those concerned about global warming are attempting to exert “a level of control that George Orwell didn't contemplate,” adding: “He who controls carbon, and controls land use policy, and even the oceans, controls the world. And that's what they're going for. And this isn't conspiracy talk, this is in their documents.” [YouTube video posted by TheAlexJonesChannel, 12/10/11]
Morano was a speaker at the Heartland Institute's Sixth International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC6). 
His speech was titled “R.I.P. Man-Made Global Warming Fears? 1988-2011.”
Doctors for Disaster Preparedness (DDP) gave Morano the Petr Beckmann Award for “demonstrating courage and achievement in defense of scientific truth and freedom.” 
Morano was a speaker at the Heartland Institute's 4th International Conference on Climate Change. 
DeSmogBlog concluded 19 of the 65 sponsors (including Heartland itself) have received a total of over $40 million in funding since 1985 from ExxonMobil (funded 13 orgs), and/or Koch Industries family foundations (funded 10 orgs) and/or the Scaife family foundations (funded 10 orgs).
February 18, 2010
Marc Morano received an award from Accuracy in Media for “outstanding contributions to journalism” for his “excellent reporting on the ClimateGate scandal that exposed the politicized science behind claims that the science is settled on global warming.” 
In his acceptance speech, Morano said that as of “the fall of 2009, more Americans believed in haunted houses than manmade global warming, and I'm not making that up. Science wins in the end.” He also said that he did not understand why Energy Secretary Steven Chu, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist is “taken seriously.” 
Marc Morano was listed as one of “17 polluters and deniers who are derailing efforts to curb global warming” in an article in Rolling Stone magazine, titled “The Climate Killers.” The article also describes Morano as the “Matt Drudge of climate denial.” 
Morano was a speaker at the Heartland Institute's 2008 International Conference on Climate Change. 
The conference was titled “Global Warming: Truth or Swindle,” and described as a “platform from which they [skeptics] can be heard.”
December 11, 2008
While he was working with Senator Inhofe, Morano helped author a report titled “More Than 700 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims,” which was initially released in 2008.
The report was debunked, and found to contain at least 84 individuals who took industry money, 49 retirees, 44 television weathermen, 20 economists, and 70 with no expertise in climate science. 
January 13, 2006
While working for CNS news, Morano broke the “Swift Boat” story that suggested that senator John Kerry did not deserve the Purple Heart award he earned in Vietnam. FactCheck.org notes that “the veterans who accuse Kerry [of lying to receive his war medals] are contradicted by Kerry's former crewmen, and by Navy records.” , 
Climate Scientist Michael Mann has since accused Morano of using “Climategate” to “Swift Boat” climate scientists. Morano's ClimateDepot claimed to have uncovered “collusion” and “deliberate manipulation of facts and data” by UN scientists. Michal Mann, who has been a subject of the accusations of ClimateDepot, said that Morano is funded by “vested interests to 'swiftboat' climate scientists, to try to distort our work, to try to undermine the public's credibility in the science.” 
According to SourceWatch, Cybercast News Service and Morano were the first sources of the “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth” campaign against presidential nominee Senator John Kerry.
In the run up to the official launch of the Swiftboat campaign, Morano wrote, “hundreds of former commanders and military colleagues of presumptive Democratic nominee John Kerry are set to declare in a signed letter that he is 'unfit to be commander-in-chief.'”
