Climate Hustle Capitol Hill premiere sets off a media storm!

climate hustleClimate Hustle is making news everywhere!

Last Thursday, the Science, Space, and Technology Committee hearing room of the U.S. House was the prestigious venue for the Capitol Hill premiere of Climate Hustle, and the room was packed.  “It is my hope that films like Climate Hustle can help unmask some of the bias and give the American people the facts,” Committee Chairman Lamar Smith asserted.

A pre-film panel discussion featured Governor Sarah Palin, University of Delaware climatologist Dr. David Legates, and film host Marc Morano, and was moderated by Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center. It also included a special video appearance by Bill Nye “the Science Guy.”

The panel will be seen exclusively during Climate Hustle’s one-night national theater event on May 2nd.

Governor Palin made a plea for the restoration of integrity to science.  “The science community needs to become less political” she said, “otherwise, it leads us to believe that so many things that [are] coming from scientists could be bogus.” Palin added, “If this is bogus, what else are they trying to tell us, trying to control us around, if they can’t do this one right?”

Media coverage was overwhelming. The event was reported on by more than 200 outlets!  Syndicated stories by Associated Press and APTV were picked up nationwide, and made the top of the Drudge Report. Other coverage included The New York Times, Washington Post, Time, CNN, Fortune, Boston Herald, UK Guardian, NBCNews.com, Breitbart News, Fox News, CBSNews.com, the New York Daily News, and many others.

An interview with Governor Palin led off Entertainment Tonight’s The Insider and showed clips of Climate Hustle’s trailer to a national television audience.

A social media brawl about Governor Palin and Bill Nye has also been spilling over everywhere. After Governor Palin stated flat out that “Bill Nye is as much a scientist as I am,” the warming-compliant media rushed to prop him up.

Of course they forgot that CFACT comes to the fray armed with the facts.

Marc Morano reminded everyone that not too long ago Salon.com (totally pro-warming) said “Bill Nye is not actually a climate scientist. He is a former mechanical engineer turned television entertainer, and now professional edu-tainer.”  And James Delingpole added in a column yesterday in Breitbart that, in his opinion, “when it comes to climate change – indeed the environment generally – Palin has a much more solid grasp of her subject than the overrated kid’s show actor.” Touché!

Climate Hustle lays out the facts and asks the tough questions the global warming campaign does not want any of us to think about.  Unfortunately for them the conversation has only just begun! 

We can’t wait for May 2nd!

For nature and people too,

    If there wasn’t so much money attached to
    prophesies of scary global warming perhaps scientists could freely practise science and the rent seekers would go fine a new scam to push .

    Climate science is in it’s early stages and far
    from settled . This movie is part of a healthy discussion that should have been allowed to happen years ago before debate was almost silenced .

    Congratulations to all concerned .

    Since the left constantly makes great gestures about [b]fairness[/b] I think this film should air in all public venues (schools, town halls, etc.) that were afforded to Al Gore’s film. I’m talking about the much heralded film that predicted – 20 foot raises in sea levels – Pacific islands drowning – Terrible and unrelenting hurricanes, etc.

    It’s time the people who drive around with DIVERSITY bumper stickers embrace the most fundamental aspect of that notion… [b]Intellectual diversity[/b].

    GR82DRV, Couldn’t agree more . Science at it’s core is about debate ,trial and error not bullying to silence debate so as to get on with
    a time table to fleece people and make others rich .

    I bet the film will be broadcast on the unbiased BBC. (sarc)

    Marc Morano should send a free copy to all the secondary schools in Britain, like Al Gore did with his in 2006.
    ( Later banned in 2007, unless the nine factual errors were stated before viewing )

    I think the film should be nominated for an “Oscar” or two, like Al Gore’s.
    ( The unbiased Hollywood gave Al Gore’s, two. (sarc) )

    So this means Mark Morano will receive a [b]Noble Prize[/b], just like Al Gore did for his brilliant work… right?
