GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, sacked Texas Tech global warming professor Katharine Hayhoe after radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh read an exclusive Climate Depot report on December 19 about Gingrich’s collaboration with the professor. [See: Rush Limbaugh Features Climate Depot: 'Our old buddy Marc Morano, used to be 'Our Man in Washington' on my TV show, & now is a global warming expert. He's got a blog called Climate Depot' -- Limbaugh: 'According to Morano, Newt's book in 2013's gonna feature a chapter by a Texas Tech climate scientist named Katharine Hayhoe...Hayhoe is one of Newt's experts']

A Limbaugh listener who heard Limbaugh read the Climate Depot report confronted Gingrich about the fact that his upcoming book was set to feature a global warming promoting professor. Gingrich immediately backed down and fired the professor on the spot. See Video of Gingrich throw Hayhoe under the bus here. (more…)
