When the UN released a report claiming we are in for mass species extinction, CFACT’s Marc Morano checked the facts, posted them at Climate Depot and spoke about what he learned on Fox News.
Rolling Stone Magazine does not want you to hear what Marc learned. They called him a “quack,” and demanded he be censored and silenced.
I had just authored a special report with dissenting scientists of the UN report. As I said on Fox News, “The UN has juiced up the issue and put themselves in charge of solving. That’s called a self-interested lobbying organization.”
Dr. Patrick Moore is an internationally recognized environmentalist and co-founder of Greenpeace. Morano reports that:
Moore bluntly mocked species extinction claims made by biologist Edward O. Wilson from Harvard University. Wilson estimated that up to 50,000 species go extinct every year based on computer models of the number of potential, but as yet undiscovered species in the world. Moore: “There’s no scientific basis for saying that 50,000 species are going extinct. The only place you can find them is in Edward O. Wilson’s computer at Harvard University. They’re actually electrons on a hard drive. I want a list of Latin names of actual species.”
The UN has made a specialty of hysterically demanding it be given vast sums of money and repressive bureaucratic control to combat climate and ecological Armageddons that exist only in the virtual world of its computer models. When analysts like Marc Morano point out that real world observational science and environmental history fail to support the UN’s claims, the media and pressure groups demand they be silenced.
In its coverage of the UN species extinction report, CNN dredged up serial alarmist Paul Ehrlich, who wrote The Population Bomb in 1968. Ehrlich has been predicting the end of the world over and over again for more than half a century. Morano reminded everyone that Ehrlich may have one of the longest losing streaks of failed predictions known to science.
Bad science must be challenged by hard facts.
All voices must be heard… including Marc Morano’s.
