I don't know anything about truthout, where I found this, but if it seems like a reliable source, then this is very interesting, and Marc Morano is someone to watch out for.
But these darned interwebs, kids! (They're a series of tubes, you know.) How do you know what's real, and what's not? Who is telling the truth? Who can you believe? Who's a shill for Big Corporate Interests, and who is a tin foil hat-wearing conspiracy theorist?
In this case, even without knowing anything about truthout, I am inclined to believe the piece, as they note Morano is heavily involved with the Heartland Institute and the climate change denial website ClimateDepot.com. The folks at Climate Depot seem delighted to have received the "Warmist" award, and with the fact that Morano was named 'Climate Change Misinformer of the Year' by Media Matters. Well, yay for them.
