Its one thing to gripe and complain about these things and disagree with it, but its quite another to convince your friends and neighbors and relatives and coworkers...
THEREFORE..., its also absolutely necessary for people to know the information in the following documentary. If there were simply one video that you could see and/or show people you know... this would be the one...
The following is an excellent video documentary on the so-called Global Warming I would recommend it to all FReepers. Its a very well-made documentary.
The Great Global Warming Swindle
If you want to download it, via a BitTorrent site (using a BitTorrent client), you can get it at the following link. Information about BitTorrent protocol and BitTorrent clients and their comparison at these three links (in this sentence). Some additional BitTorrent information here and here.
Download it here...
[This is a high-quality copy, of about a gigabyte in size. This link is the information about it, and you have to click the download link to get it on your BitTorrent client software. You'll also find users' comments here, too.]
Its worth seeing and having for relatives, friends, neighbors and coworkers to see.
Also, see it online here...
[this one is considerably lower quality, is a flash video and viewable online, of course..., and also, you can download flash video on a website either yourself or some software doing it.]
Buy it on DVD here...
[this would be the very highest quality version, on a DVD disk, of several gigabytes in size...] At Amazon, it seems to be high-priced now and have only a few copies right now.
At WAGtv (a UK shop), but don't know about shipping. The price is reasonable, though.
[And..., some information from WAGtv about this item.]
Also, in split parts on YouTube...

Until recently, global temperatures were more than a degree Fahrenheit warmer when compared to the overall 20th Century mean. From August of 2007 through February of 2008, the Earths mean reading dropped to near the 200-year average temperature of 57 degrees. Since that time, the mean reading has been fluctuating.
We, Cliff Harris and Randy Mann, believe that the warming and even the cooling of global temperatures are the result of long-term climatic cycles, solar activity, sea-surface temperature patterns and more. However, Mankinds activities of the burning of fossil fuels, massive deforestations, the replacing of grassy surfaces with asphalt and concrete, the Urban Heat Island Effect, are making conditions worse and this will ultimately enhance the Earths warming process down the meteorological roadway in the next several decades.
From the late 1940s through the early 1970s, a climate research organization called the Weather Science Foundation of Crystal Lake, Illinois, determined that the planets warm, cold, wet and dry periods were the result of alternating short-term and long-term climatic cycles. These researchers and scientists also concluded that the Earths ever-changing climate likewise has influenced global and regional economies, human and animal migrations, science, religion and the arts as well as shifting forms of government and strength of leadership.
Much of this data was based upon thousands of hours of research done by Dr. Raymond H. Wheeler and his associates during the 1930s and 1940s at the University of Kansas. Dr. Wheeler was well-known for his discovery of various climate cycles, including his highly-regarded 510-Year Drought Clock that he detailed at the end of the Dust Bowl era in the late 1930s.
During the early 1970s, our planet was in the midst of a colder and drier weather cycle. Inflationary recessions and oil shortages led to rationing and long gas lines at service stations worldwide. The situation at that time was far worse than it is now, at least for the time being.
The Weather Science Foundation also predicted, based on these various climate cycles, that our planet would turn much warmer and wetter by the early 2000s, resulting in general global prosperity. They also said that we would be seeing at this time widespread weather extremes. Theres little doubt that most of their early predictions came true.
Our recent decline in the Earths temperature may be a combination of both long-term and short-term climate cycles, decreased solar activity and the development of a strong long-lasting La Nina, the current cooler than normal sea-surface temperature event in the south-central Pacific Ocean. Sunspot activity in the past 18 months has decreased to the lowest levels since The Little Ice Age ended in the mid-to late 1800s. This "cool spell," though, may only be a brief interruption to the Earths overall warming trend. Only time will tell.
Based on these predictions, it appears that much warmer readings may be expected for Planet Earth, especially by the 2030s, that will eventually top 1998's global highest reading of 58.3 degrees. Its quite possible we could see an average temperature in the low 60s. Until then, this cooling period may last from just a few months to as long as several years, especially if sunspot activity remains very low.
We at Harris-Mann Climatology, www.LongRangeWeather.com, believe that our prolonged cycle of wide weather extremes, the worst in at least 1,000 years, will continue and perhaps become even more severe, especially by the mid 2010s. We should see more powerful storms, including major hurricanes and increasing deadly tornadoes. There will likewise be widespread flooding, crop-destroying droughts and freezes and violent weather of all types including ice storms, large-sized hail and torrential downpours.
We are already seeing on virtually every continent an almost Biblical weather scenario of increasing droughts and floods. In both the southwestern and southeastern corners of the U.S, there are severe water shortage problems associated with chronic long-term dryness. In some cases, the water deficits are the worst in at least 400 years.
Dr. Wheeler also discovered that approximately every 102 years, a much warmer and drier climatic cycle affects our planet. The last such warm and dry peak occurred in 1936, at the end of the infamous Dust Bowl period. During that time, extreme heat and dryness, combined with a multitude of problems during the Great Depression, made living conditions practically intolerable.
The next warm and dry climatic phase is scheduled to arrive in the early 2030s, probably peaking around 2038. It is expected to produce even hotter and drier weather patterns than we saw during the late 1990s and early 2000s.
But, we should remember, that the Earths coldest periods have usually followed excessive warmth. Such was the case when our planet moved from the Medieval Warm Period between 900 and 1300 A.D. to the sudden Little Ice Age, which peaked in the 17th Century.
By the end of this 21st Century, a big cool down may occur that could ultimately lead to expanding glaciers worldwide, even in the mid-latitudes. We could possibly see even a new Great Ice Age. Based on long-term climatic data, these major ice ages have recurred about every 11,500 years. Well, you guessed it. The last extensive ice age was approximately 11,500 years ago, so we may be due. Again, only time will tell.
He sure is vehementley against cap and trade for being a greenie.
He removed every CFL light out of the house he moved into. Can’t stand them he said.
Articles are coming out right and left designed to divide the resurgence of conservatives.
All one had to do was show what nature can do on its own.
I do my part to be green too. It doesn’t mean I believe in man caused global warming. It just means I want a clean environment and will do my small part.
One of his first shows had that hillarious segment on cleaning up a broken CFL bulb.
Thanks for the post.
The evil Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts always taught us to clean up our own mess. Mom, too.
Common sense: Libs don't have it.
Hell I even pick up other people’s trash. Not because I like to, but because it looks like crap.
Global Warming, Global Cooling, Climate Change....are all real.
But...mankind is truly egocentric if mankind feels responsible.
“Articles are coming out right and left designed to divide the resurgence of conservatives.”
IMHO, there is only one thing that can stop the conservative resurgency, and that is conservatives themselves. As a thread like this illustrates, we are too quick to pounce - pretty soon, Palin will be dead to us for stumping for McCain.
This insistence on TOTAL, DOWN-THE-LINE, adherence to each and every conservative precept - social, fiscal or whatever - will pretty much guarantee we will never get a candidate we are “happy” with.
I heard some great speeches at CPAC - but were they recognized or given credit here? Only Beck. We are seeing RINO’s under the bed, in closets and behind the curtains.
This is bad business, and will retard our attempts to turn this country around, imo.
Exactly. I pick up others' trash and always had my kids do the same. It's not exactly rocket science and it certainly doesn't require government intervention. Sheesh.
Amen! I fail to understand why some feel (maybe they are small minded) that because one is a Conservative one should trash the planet. I do my part to keep the Earth the Lord bestowed clean. I do not believe that it is an ‘us versus them’ issue. For the matter, a lot of the so called ‘environmentalist Lefties’ are frauds ...sipping soy and wearing hemp doesn’t make one special. Any fool can grow their hair long and take a weekly shower ...thus I refuse to let the Left define what being environmentally friendly is. It is like a shepherd ...he has many sheep that he cares for, however he also eats those sheep and shears them. But, since he is a good tender of his flock, the flock grows in number and health - even though he eats mutton and wears wool. As things should be. The fools at DU think the farmer shouldn’t benefit from the meat and wool, while here on FR some would say that unless the farmer shoots all the sheep and somps on them with greased up boots then he is a ‘greeny.’ the truth isinbetween
I can’t count the number of times I have stopped on a country road to pick up someone elses muffler out of the middle of the road, or someone’s trash cans blowing into the road. I guess most think it is “someone else’s job”...
If I were a rich man I would buy a 10,000 acre tract of wilderness and keep it that way. If its my property I can do with it as I please.
Speaking of conservatives—I happened to have an opportunity to speak with one of the Park Police in DC after our the huge march on DC back in September, where more than 1 million people took part.
He told me that he and his fellow workers were amazed because there was no litter left behind. He said that the mall was left very clean, and that the crews who usually do the clean up, which can sometimes take several days had very little to pick up and haul away. He said it was less than one black garbage bag full.
Being “green” used to be known as being conservative—conserving resources and reusing as much as possible. We really need to reclaim the word and the sentiment for ourselves, in the spirit of Teddy Roosevelt.
Global warming global cooling....There ain’t nothin we can do about it.
You should see the army of boy scouts that swarms around Michigan International Speedway after a race. They do the trash clean up and make a killing off the beer cans they pick up under the stands.
However, I would bet quite a tidy sum that if there was a Lefty gathering that once it was over the mess would be a stinking heap! They would be spouting forth about helping the earth and peace and all sorts of goody goody stuff, but once it was over there would be litter, plastic, waste and all sorts of things that stand incongruent from what they were speaking about.
So they’re admitting that belief in global warming is a sign of being leftist. I thought it was just based on science.
The (not quite a ) Million Mom March, which was funded in part by George Soros, so I’ve been told, just walked away and left hundreds, perhaps thousands of dollars worth of printed material, including hard back books, sitting on the mall.
Kristinn went over and took photos and posted them on FR back then.
The rains came, soaked all the stuff, and it all ended up in the land fill. There were probably about a half a dozen garbage trucks full of their stuff.
Carbon Dioxide does not cause global warming.
Yeah, that’s just what we need to be, in the ‘spirit of Teddy Roosevelt’. Who better to be in the spirit of than a guy who didn’t believe in private property and was the first president to call for socialized medicine?
I’m not suggesting we become exact duplicates of everything TR said and stood for. I am talking in the context of conservation.
Nobody is an exemplar of perfected public and private and civic life. For all the wonderful contributions of Ronald Reagan I wouldn’t follow everything he did as a parent.
A similar situation here. When I run at a track at a local high school, the first thing I do is pick up the junk that people carelessly toss: water bottles, candy wrappers and other debris. One afternoon, another runner actually asked if I was a ``liberal do-gooder''.
He didn't say it with a sneer -- more an off-the-cuff light comment. I explained to him that I may be doing good but am far from a liberal. I went on to add that as a conservative, we need to be good stewards and do our part to keep things nice looking. I wrapped up by saying that I simply don't like to look at crap when I run, so my motive stem from enlightened self-interest.
And the rest of the story is that he grabbed a few of the discarded bottles and helped me clean up before I started my laps.
