No longer. Polls reveal
plummeting numbers for those still believing in catastrophic climate
change. The biggest, most outrageous, humungous eco scare campaign in

It’s a real David vs. Goliath
story and impossible without the leveling effect of the Internet where
little budgets can give you a lot of traction.
It’s not a perfect article in any measure and Esquire
fumbled when it incorrectly claimed Climate Depot’s Marc Morano made an
“obvious mistake” about sea levels. But “reality check”: Marc did cite
the data accurately!
I too have been a Marc Morano
fan for years and am in awe of how one man’s tireless efforts to get

As for the somewhat snarky
tone of the piece, well, the Esquire writer clearly believes that
changes in climate will be catastrophic and man is the culprit. At the

publisher, Hearst Corporation: “There is no question that global warming
is the No. 1 issue challenging our environment and our ability to
sustain this planet.”
