THE GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE
This is a controversial documentary film that argues against the “scientific consensus” that human activity is the main cause of global warming.

The film, made by British television producer Martin Durkin, showcases scientists, economists, politicians, writers, and others who are sceptical of the scientific consensus on anthropogenic global warming.

Re: THE GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE
"Man-Made" goes a bit far, but chopping down the rain forests doesn't help much either. With our solar system merging with the Milky Way Galaxy, who knows what the true cause is? Things are changing, but a 'carbon tax' is going a bit too far. The NWO will never take hold without more drastic measures.

Re: THE GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE
Yep, it is a hoax documentary by a known con artist. And it is a wonderful example of what you can do if big oil is footing the bill.

Of course when half the people you interview demand retractions and inform the world that everything was taken out of context, it kind of shows how good your side of the debate is.

So, there is a swindle here, but as always, it is not Global Warming.

So we're supposed to take your word for it? No link, no info, just faith?

Of course, when they learned they were going to have their funding pulled for saying those things on the video, that's when they tried to retract those statements.

Show us some proof or shut the fuck up.

Re: THE GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE
I too agree global warming could be due to our system entering a new energy field.

I've also pondered the idea that the oil in the earth is there for a reason. what happens to an engine when it starts to run low on oil? it starts to overheat...

Re: THE GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE
the film is a scam, filled with misrepresentations, omissions and outright lies.

for example, he conveniently drops the last twenty years worth of data from his charts and puts a tag with and arrow on it that says "Now". The last twenty years is the part where everything he says didn't happen, did happen. It's the part where the numbers go off the chart in an alarming and obvious divergence from historical data.

It's a republican thing, if you're "loyal" you won't mind that it's utter bullshit, you'll believe it anyway, and spread it around for others to see. Other people who don't mind lying to themselves or being lied to.

Nah. Myself and others did that for the last ten incarnations of this thread. Just because you bring back old news over and over does not suddenly make it true.

You want to bring this back up again?

Then do the research yourself!

Seriously this has been up so many times now...

Yes, and Alpha-Al-Gore is a credentialed, world-renowned climate scientist who doesn't own part of a company who trades carbon credits.....

Re: THE GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE
I got curios as to how many times this has been on here.

The answer is twelve under this name.

Anyway, here is a snip from Wikipedia:

link: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The show attracted 2.5 million viewers and an audience share of 11.5%.[14] There have been 246 complaints to the British regulator Ofcom as of April 25, 2007,[15] including the complaints that the program falsified data[16] and that Durkin's previous track record was not disclosed.[17] Channel 4 stated that it had received 758 calls and emails about the programme, with those in favour outnumbering complaints by six to one.

Following criticism from scientists the film has been changed since it was first broadcast on Channel 4. One graph had its time axis relabelled, the claim that volcanoes produce more CO2 than humans was removed, and following objections about how his interview had been used, the interview with Carl Wunsch was removed for the international and DVD releases of the programme.

Other scientific arguments used in the film have been described as refuted or misleading by scientists working in the relevant fields.[5][18] Critics have also argued that the programme is one-sided and that the mainstream position on global warming, as supported by the scientific academies of the major industrialized nations and other scientific organizations, is incorrectly represented.[5]

*****

The data checks out and seems correct, as stated above.

This data has been "wikified" by the people that are Pro-environmental destruction and big oil, and it still makes the filmmakers look bad...

Al Gore gave a speech. He used others data (and gave them credit) and got some things wrong.

But he has as much right to give a speech as you or I do...

I mean, we both post our views here, are you a qualified scientist?



:)

I guess, if you are not a qualified climate scientist you will stop posting on this topic?

:)

Think before you speak! It is to your own benefit.

Re: THE GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE
You all are supposed to be so awesome at sniffing out conspiracies...

Yet here you are, utterly blind to the Big Oil conspiracy that you swallow everything they put out hook, line and sinker and regurgitate it everywhere else, THINKING YOU ARE THE SMART ONE.

Pathetic.

If you are not a scientist, you have NO idea what you are talking about.

You could NOT fake the moon landing with scientists, because they LIVE for the thrill of science. Its not the money, its the discovery that makes them get up in the morning and work so hard at it.

They would abandon their jobs in disgust the moment they knew it was a hoax, and move on to REAL science. These can be the most stubborn people on this planet, you'd have to be crazy to think they would go along with a hoax. They would fight tooth and nail and raise a huge stink about it.

By the way, I have always disliked Gore, and refused to vote for him despite how utterly moronic and dangerous Bush looked to be. I don't need him in order to see what the scientific data tell us.

Where I stand on climate change is that carbon dioxide DOES have an impact on our climate. On the other hand, I also recognize that we HAVE NO IDEA what the results of this change will be... we can throw out multiple theories but in the end, the planet will teach us the lesson.

It could get hotter, but then again something may snap and we'll be plunged into a severe ice age instead.
