Marc Morano Sticks It To Al Jazeera

June 6, 2017

By Paul Homewood




Climate Depot’s Marc Morano had, what he terms, a contentious interview with Al Jazeera about Trump’s withdrawal from Paris.

The Al Jazeera interviewer comes up with the usual criticisms of Trump, of how he is letting the world down, etc etc.

I can only presume he is not aware of Qatar’s own record in these affairs.

For a start, their emissions of CO2 have been rocketing in the last decade.




CO2 emissions per capita in Qatar are actually the highest in the world, more than three times the US.


According to BP’s latest figures for 2015, renewable energy supplied precisely 0.02% of primary energy consumption.

And Qatar’s INDC contains six pages of waffle, but does not once mention cuts in emissions or targets for renewable energy:



It’s only contribution to the fight against global warming, it appears, is that it has been exporting LNG!



Pots and kettles spring to mind!

    No wonder, all of them USA [world] green bloberati will not engage with Marc.

    Mr Morano, he is clued up, has great wit, he is erudite and sparky but also, he is a formidable spokesperson for common sense and realist energy policy and he speaks for me – WELL SAID MARC – as we say in England:

    you are the guvnor, and the business mate!!

      By some error Marc was allowed to give a full justification of the US withdrawal on the BBC World Service, the day after it happened. I suspect that Harrabin was asleep on the job, but that then he dispatched his Ring Wraiths, and the BBC WS has been on-message ever since.

    It takes a lot of CO2 to fight climate change.

      Yes John… 46% more CO2 in over two hundred years… for a less than a one degree C rise? Paris says we need to rebury a few billion tons? Lots to “capture and store” to fight that huge change?

    Morano’s all-in American presentation style grates with me as he’s too bullish and rapid-fire and with the best will in the world he’s an annoying little twat. (and I’m on his side) I think the accuracy of his message gets lost in the whirlwind, which is a shame because on facts he’s usually very good indeed. Someone like Matt Ridley delivers in a far more comfortable and credible manner. Maybe it’s because I’m British.

      Morano deserves a massive amount of credit for what he does with Climate Depot. Annoying? I don’t find him so.
