House Republicans Invite Infowars Guest To Be Their Expert On Climate Change
A climate change denier who has frequented Alex Jones’ Infowars show appeared before a congressional committee last month at the behest of House Republicans to discuss recent reports that climate change is pushing one million species toward extinction, according to Right Wing Watch.
And as expected, Marc Morano told the Committee on Natural Resources’ Subcommittee on Water, Oceans, and Wildlife that reports on threats to biodiversity due to climate change are merely “authoritative propaganda.”
Morano, who trafficks in conspiracy theories asserting that climate change is hoax and is a loud voice among those attempting to confuse the public over the causes and dangers of climate change, founded the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow’s (CFACT) ClimateDepot project.
CFACT, Right Wing Watch noted, receives funding from oil companies and denies the scientific consensus on man-made climate change.
Morano has written for Infowars as far back as 2008 and has appeared on Jones’ show as recently as February of this year, according to RWW. During that appearance, Morano “alleged that Democrats advocating for the Green New Deal legislation wanted to declare climate change a national emergency so party leaders could implement totalitarian control over America.”
The climate change denier has made similar statements over the years, claiming that world governments are using climate issues to further a one-world government agenda centered on eco-fascism.
That such a conspiracy theorist would be honored with a seat before Congress to spread his misinformation was astounding to congressional Democrats, as evidenced by their tweets marking the occasion:
