Kerry a climate change fanatic

Today is the last official day in office for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but concerns about her replacement have already been mounting when it comes to climate policy.

Senator John Kerry (D-MA) was confirmed this week to be the next Secretary of State. The vote was 94-3, with Senators John Cornyn (R-TX), Ted Cruz (R-TX) and James Inhofe (R-OK) voting 'no.' Inhofe's reasons include Kerry's "strong" push for U.S. action on climate change, which Inhofe claims would damage the economy.

Marc Morano, executive director of Climate Depot and former Inhofe staffer, echoes that sentiment.

Morano, Marc (Climate Depot)"He actually goes around saying, 'Can you name a single, peer-reviewed study that challenges man-made global warming?' Yeah, we can name hundreds of them. That's all we do," Morano responds.

"If you break it all down, most of these studies don't look at whether CO2 impacts climate. They're on A-to-Z issues, everything from polar bears to sea level rise to global temperature to floods, droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes -- and on almost every single measure I just mentioned, Kerry's predictions are failing"

One of the arguments against Morano's group and other so-called skeptical organizations is that they are funded by "Big Oil," but Morano denies that charge.

"First of all, our budget is something like 17 or 18 times smaller than the Sierra Club's. Second of all, we're not getting anything from Exxon Mobil, we're not getting anything from Chevron. We're mostly surviving on individual donations and foundations. Look at (a) how much industry has given to environmental groups and (b) how much environmental groups have from governments [and] foundations."
