Climate Depot's Morano: March to Protest Warming Was Worthless

By    |   Tuesday, 23 Sep 2014 05:25 PM

"The People's Climate March" — in which tens of thousands of people marched through New York City on Sunday to protest global warming — will ultimately have little or no impact, says Marc Morano, founder of the environmental think tank Climate Depot.

"In a way, it's sort of shedding this spotlight on stuff that's not going to appeal to middle America," Morano said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"It's not going to shift in the polls, it's not going to shift anything in Congress. So, in the end, it's just a big progressive party, if you will, here in New York City."

Morano says the participation of big-name celebrities, such as Leonardo DiCaprio, smacks of hypocrisy.

"The 2007 Academy Awards, when [former Vice President] Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio walked out on stage [to accept an award for "An Inconvenient Truth"], they flashed all these green tips," Morano said.

"One of them was use public transit. When was the time Al Gore or Leo DiCaprio was on a city bus? It doesn't happen.

"But it's like the old Soviet Politburo. One set of rules for them, and everyone else gets another set."

He pointed to James Cameron, director of "Avatar" and "Titanic," who is an outspoken environmentalist.

"[He] has multiple mansions next to each other and he has multiple homes, yachts, all kinds of stuff," Morano said.

"He goes down to Brazil and tries to stop development in Brazil, which even the leftist president was supporting . . . and then flies home.

"They're not only telling Americans they have to pay more, but preventing lifesaving electricity for people who don't even have running water and electricity."

At Sunday's march, more than 300,000 people paraded through midtown Manhattan in what is thought to be the largest climate-change rally in history.

Aside from DiCaprio and Gore, other noted participants included actor Mark Ruffalo, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon.
