Global warmers fear Climate Hustle
The skeptical documentary “Climate Hustle” doesn’t hit U.S. theaters until Monday, but it’s already unsettling the climate-change debate.Part of Marc Morano's charm is his irreverence in dealing with the control freak climate changers. I have heard him speak and its is clear that those pushing the climate change scare fear him even more than they claim to fear the change in the weather. They are like the medieval clergy that rejected any differences in opinion about "settled science." I look forward to seeing it. The title really captures the control freak nature of the proponents of the climate change fear-mongers.
Weather Channel founder John Coleman rushed to the defense of the film, which challenges the catastrophic climate-change narrative, after “science guy” Bill Nye slammed it in a clip released over the weekend as “not in our national interest and the world’s interest.”
“I have always been amazed that anyone would pay attention to Bill Nye, a pretend scientist in a bow tie,” Mr. Coleman said Saturday on the website Climate Depot.
“As a man who has studied the science of meteorology for over 60 years and received the AMS [American Meteorological Society] ‘Meteorologist of the Year’ award, I am totally offended that Nye gets the press and media attention he does,” Mr. Coleman said. “And I am rooting for the ‘Climate Hustle’ film to become a huge hit — bigger than ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ by Al Gore.”
Indeed, the documentary by Climate Depot’s Marc Morano bills itself as a response to former Vice President Gore’s Academy Award-winning 2006 documentary, which sparked international alarm with its warnings of imminent environmental disaster fueled by rising greenhouse-gas levels in the atmosphere.
“Climate Hustle,” which has a one-day screening at theaters nationwide Monday, argues that the climate-change catastrophe scenarios are part of an “overheated environmental con job” aimed at creating hysteria in order to drive public support for bigger government and ever-increasing regulation.
The documentary’s full name is: “Climate Hustle: Are They Trying to Control the Climate .… Or You?”
Anthony Watts, who runs the skeptical climate website Watts Up With That, said the documentary is the first aimed at debunking the claims of the climate-change movement. He called the film “corny” at times but also vastly more entertaining than ponderous climate yawners like Leonardo DiCaprio’s 2007 “The 11th Hour,” which bombed at the box office.
“[T]hat’s the purpose of this film, to make people laugh at the ridiculous claims that have been created about global warming/climate change. Morano does this, and does it well. That’s the power behind this film,” said Mr. Watts in his review.
