Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, the author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change, came under fire by the mainstream media for accurately rejecting the notion that carbon dioxide is “pollution.”

Newsweek rips ‘smiling Morano.” for the CO2 comment. Newsweek wrote April 30, 2019: “First of all, pollution and carbon dioxide, humans, we inhale oxygen and we exhale carbon dioxide, so he’s calling CO2 pollution, which it’s not,” Morano proclaimed Tuesday.”

Newsweek added: “A former Republican aide who rejects the scientific community’s consensus on climate change said carbon dioxide is not pollution, dredging up a decades-old defense of CO2 emissions in order to write off Beto O’Rourke’s newly announced climate plan.”

Morano’s response to Newsweek:

“Calling carbon dioxide ‘pollution’ is anti-science. I did not, as Newsweek claims,  ‘dredge up a decades-old defense of CO2’, instead I used science to make an accurate statement. And, I will keep on smiling when explaining the science behind the CO2 based climate scare.”

Experts from Morano’s book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change rejecting the claim that CO2 is “pollution”. [Note: A new 2019 edition of Morano’s book will be available shortly with a bonus chapter on the Green New Deal – Stay tuned!]

Page 47 in Morano’s book: Corrupting the Language – “Warming and increased CO2 will be good for mankind . . . CO2 is not a pollutant and it is not a poison and we should not corrupt the English language by depriving ‘pollutant’ and ‘poison’ of their original meaning.” —Princeton professor Dr. William Happer to Congress

Professor Happer and NASA moonwalker and geologist Harrison H. Schmitt: “Thanks to the single-minded demonization of this natural and essential atmospheric gas by advocates of government control of energy production, the conventional wisdom about carbon dioxide is that it is a dangerous pollutant. That’s simply not the case.”

MIT climate scientist Richard Lindzen has mocked claims that carbon dioxide is dangerous. “CO2, it should be noted, is hardly poisonous. On the contrary, it is essential for life on our planet and levels as high as 5000 ppm are considered safe on our submarines and on the space station (current atmospheric levels are around 400 ppm, while, due to our breathing, indoor levels can be much higher),” he said in 2017.

“You can go outside and spit and have the same effect as doubling carbon dioxide.” —renowned atmospheric scientist Reid Bryson, founding director of the Institute for Environmental Studies

Page 127: Renowned Princeton University physicist Freeman Dyson, who has been hailed as “Einstein’s successor,” is another scientific dissenter on the political Left. “‘I’m 100% Democrat and I like Obama. But he took the wrong side on the climate issue, and the Republicans took the right side,” Dyson explained in 2015.

He called the UN climate pact “pointless” and explained, “pollution is quite separate to the climate problem: one can be solved, and the other cannot, and the public doesn’t understand that.”

Page 277: Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore: “We should be teaching them about the carbon cycle, not about carbon pollution. We should be teaching them about how carbon dioxide is the most important food for all life on earth,” Moore explained.
