Vanavond gaat in de Parijse bioscoop, Cinéma du Panthéon, de rode loper uit voor de première van ‘Climate Hustle’, geproduceerd door Marc Morano, een bekend Amerikaans klimaatscepticus.
Met de hem zo kenmerkende bescheidenheid verklaarde Morano:
We are going to have the greatest climate documentary of al-l-l-l-l ti-i-i-ime!
Fox TV schonk aandacht aan het verschijnen van de film. Ik pik een aantal elementen uit de aankondiging.
Watch Now: Hannity on Fox News features exclusive clips of ‘Climate Hustle’: First Time Broadcast of Select Clips
Hannity: “A new documentary called Climate Hustle takes aim at many of the global warming alarmists and debunks much of their so-called science …The film even goes after Lear Jet Liberal Al Gore.”
Morano: “In our film Climate Hustle, we go back to the 1970s. We have Walter Cronkite, ABC News, and Leonard Nimoy — warning of a coming ice age.”
Hannity: “A new documentary called Climate Hustle takes aim at many of the global warming alarmists and debunks much of their so-called science.” Here is a clip of the film. [Show Climate Hustle clip showing that no matter the weather, ‘global warming’ is blamed as the cause.]
Hannity: “The film even goes after Lear Jet Liberal Al Gore. Watch this.” [Hannity then shows 2nd clip featuring Climate Statistician Dr. Caleb Rossiter and Geologist Dr. Robert Giegengack former chair of the Earth Sciences Dept. at the University of Pennsylvania, critiquing Al Gore’s film ‘An Inconvenient Truth.’]
Hannity: “The publisher of Climate Depot and the producer of Climate Hustle, Marc Morano is with us.”
Morano: “The goal of these UN climate conferences has nothing to do with science. They actually say even if we are wrong on the science, we are doing the right thing by policy.”
Hannity: “First it was the coming ice age, then it was earth is going to burn up and global warming and now they have climate change. As you pointed out in Climate Hustle, if it snows, if it doesn’t snow, if it rains, if it doesn’t rain, tsunami no tsunami, volcanic activity or not. It’s always climate change, no matter what it is!”
Morano: “Yes. In our film Climate Hustle, we go back to the 1970s. We have Walter Cronkite, ABC News, and Leonard Nimoy — warning of a coming ice age. And we say: ‘Before fossil fuels caused global warming, fossil fuels caused – global cooling. And there was actually the theory that fossil fuel burning was going to block out the sun and cool the earth [in the 1970s]. But now they say the 1970s global cooling scare never happened. Just like they are trying to erase the global warming ‘pause’ never happened. They are actually erasing the past on many important things.”
Morano on Obama’s speech from UN summit: “It was like an apocalyptic doom preacher trying to scare people with no basis in science. The idea that ISIS was created by man-made global warming because there was a drought in Syria is not based on science. In 1933, the government of Syria banned Yo-Yos because they thought they caused drought. And now modern day climate activists want to ban SUVs and coal plants because they think they cause droughts. By the way, droughts, extreme weather, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes — we detail this in Climate Hustle — not only are they not increasing, on many metrics they are declining. So when CO2 was lower in the atmosphere, we had MORE storminess. So the idea that cutting CO2 is going to improve our climate and have anything to do with national security — is laughable.”
Hannity to Morano: “Good luck with the film.”

Onder de genodigden van de première van ‘Climate Hustle’ zijn vele internationaal prominente klimaatsceptici. Het is de eerste keer dat anglofone en francofone klimaatsceptici elkaar op grote schaal zullen ontmoeten.
De voorganger van ‘Climate Hustle’, ‘The Great Global Warming Swindle’, is hier te vinden. De producent van de film, Martin Durkin, heeft mij persoonlijk verteld dat dit boek zijn belangrijkste inspiratiebron was. Zijn crew en hij noemde het hun ‘Bijbel’.
Voor de francofielen onder ons hier nog een interview, ‘Le climato-scepticisme: A-t-on de bonnes raisons de douter de la responsabilité humaine dans le changement climatique?’, van hoog niveau van Raphaël Enthoven, van huis uit filosoof en ex van Carla Brunetti, met o.a. de Franse climato-realist Benoît Rittaud.
