    James Cameron challenges climate skeptics to debate and then bails out at last minute

    ASPEN COLORADO: Hollywood director James Cameron challenged three high profile global warming skeptics to a public debate at a global warming and energy conference. But Cameron backed out of the debate at the last minute after environmentalists “came out of the woodwork” to warn him not to engage in a debate with skeptics because it was not in his best interest.*

    Cameron challenged Andrew Breitbart, Climate Depot’s Marc Morano and filmmaker Ann McElhinney of ‘Not Evil Just Wrong.’ The debate was already in the program for the Aspen American Renewable Energy Day (AREDAY) summit. The website program described the agreed to debate as “AREDAY Climate Change Debate: Reality or Fiction?”*

    After setting up the public global warming debate, Cameron and his negotiator then changed formats multiple times and initially said it would be open to the media and then said he would only participate if it was private with no recording devices. The skeptics agreed to all the changes. According to AREDAY organizers, activist Joseph Romm of Climate Progress urged Cameron not to go ahead with the debate as well.*

    Cameron’s cancellation of the agreed to debate did not happen until one debate participant (Morano) was already in mid-air, flying from DC to Aspen on Saturday August 21 to attend the debate. (AREDAY did grant Morano a 90 minute slot to speak at the summit. See: Climate Depot’s Presentation at Warmists’ Summit Met By Hostile Interrupting Moderator and Crowd; Call for Morano to Kill Himself!)*

    (Morano Note: After ducking debate, James Cameron boldly slammed global warming skeptics as “swine” on the day he was supposed to be debating them. “I think they’re swine” Cameron told a friendly audience at the AREDAY summit.

    Below is detailed report from Ann McElhinney of www.NotEvilJustWrong.com on how Cameron ducked out of debate he set up.*

    James Cameron—King of Hypocrites *

    Written by Ann McElhinney

    Last March James Cameron sounded defiant.*

    The Avatar director was determined to expose journalists, such as myself, who thought it was important to ask questions about climate change orthodoxy and the radical “solutions” being proposed.

    Cameron said was itching to debate the issue and show skeptical journalists and scientists that they were wrong.

    “I want to call those deniers out into the street at high noon and shoot it out with those boneheads,” he said in an interview.

    Well, a few weeks ago Mr. Cameron seemed to honor his word.

    His representatives contacted myself and two other well known skeptics, Marc Morano of the Climate Depot website and Andrew Breitbart, the new media entrepreneur.

    Mr. Cameron was attending the AREDAY environmental conference in Aspen Colorado 19-22 August. He wanted the conference to end with a debate on climate change. Cameron would be flanked with two scientists. It would be 90 minutes long. It would be streamed live on the internet.

    They hoped the debate would attract a lot of media coverage.

    “We are delighted to have Fox News, Newsmax, The Washington Times and anyone else you’d like. The more the better,” one of James Cameron’s organizers said in an email.

    It looked like James Cameron really was a man of his word who would get to take on the skeptics he felt were so endangering humanity.

    Everyone on our side agreed with their conditions. The debate was even listed on the AREDAY agenda.

    But then as the debate approached James Cameron’s side started changing the rules.

    They wanted to change their team. We agreed.

    They wanted to change the format to less of a debate—to “a roundtable”. We agreed.

    Then they wanted to ban our cameras from the debate. We could have access to their footage. We agreed.

    Bizarrely, for a brief while, the worlds most successful film maker suggested that no cameras should be allowed-that sound only should be recorded. We agreed

    Then finally James Cameron, who so publicly announced that he “wanted to call those deniers out into the street at high noon and shoot it out,” decided to ban the media from the shoot out.

    He even wanted to ban the public. The debate/roundtable would only be open to those who attended the conference.

    No media would be allowed and there would be no streaming on the internet. No one would be allowed to record it in any way.

    We all agreed to that.

    And then, yesterday, just one day before the debate, his representatives sent an email that Mr. “shoot it out ” Cameron no longer wanted to take part. The debate was cancelled.

    James Cameron’s behavior raises some very important questions.

    Does he genuinely believe in man made climate change? If he believes it is a danger to humanity surely he should be debating the issue every chance he gets ?

    Or is it just a pose?

    The man who called for an open and public debate at “high noon” suddenly doesn’t want his policies open to serious scrutiny.*

    I was looking forward to debating with the film maker. I was looking forward to finding out where we agreed and disagreed and finding a way forward that would help the poorest people in the developing and developed world.*

    But that is not going to happen because somewhere along the way James Cameron, a great film maker, has moved from King of the World to being King of the Hypocrites.*

    Cameron Refuses to Debate Climate Change – He’s Just Too Smart to Bother!

    Marc Morano

    Thursday, August 26, 2010

    [Note from Marc Morano: "Cameron is now claiming he cancelled the climate debate at the last minute because I am not worthy to debate him. Cameron claims I have not achieved a 'stature in our society' that is 'similar to his. Looks like I may have a long wait to rise to Cameron's level of environmental consciousness! See photo of Cameron's house here."]

    [Reprint from E&E Greenwire - August 23, 2010]

    Key Article Excerpts:

    Morano: “Cameron let his friends in the environmental community spook him out of this debate,” Morano said. “When he was warned that he was probably going to lose and lose badly, he ran like a scared mouse.”

    Cameron Spokesman: “Morano is not at James Cameron’s level to debate, and that’s why that didn’t happen,” Comins said. “Cameron should be debating someone who is similar to his stature in our society.

    E&E Article: Global warming debate is scuttled and barbs fly (08/23/2010)

    By Robin Bravender, E&E reporter

    Director James Cameron blasted global warming deniers yesterday after a prominent climate change skeptic accused the filmmaker of backing out of a public debate on climate science.

    “I think they’re swine,” Cameron said yesterday of climate skeptics before an audience in Aspen, Colo., the Aspen Times reported. Cameron, whose blockbuster science-fiction film “Avatar” won acclaim from environmentalists, was a featured speaker at the American Renewable Energy Day summit.

    Cameron had been scheduled to debate climate change skeptics yesterday, but the event was canceled at the last minute, according to Marc Morano, director of the skeptic website “Climate Depot” and a former spokesman for Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.).

    Morano said he and two other skeptics — conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart and filmmaker Ann McElhinney — were planning to debate Cameron last night, but the director pulled the plug after environmentalists warned him against participating in the forum. Morano said the cancellation was made while he was on his flight to Aspen.

    “He let his friends in the environmental community spook him out of this debate,” Morano said. “When he was warned that he was probably going to lose and lose badly, he ran like a scared mouse.”
