The Great Global Warming Swindle (Watch whole British documentary)
Powerline/BBC ^ | March 2007 | BBC

Posted on 03/14/2007 1:29:22 PM PDT by Choose Ye This Day

Powerline Video has the whole BBC1 documentary where dissenting scientists speak out against the "man-made global warming crisis" orthodoxy.

Well worth the watch.

About an hour and ten minutes long.


TOPICS: Editorial
KEYWORDS: globalwarming; globalwarmingmyth; globalwarmingswindle

And finding the video for the "Great Global Warming Swindle."

I took the time to watch this video a few days ago and it is excellent. Real scientists use REAL scientific data, going back thousands of years. Al Gore is an idiot and the Hollyweird crowd has egg on their smarmy faces.

I watched this, well half of it so far. Seems VERY well done. I want to see a debate with some of the scientists in it and Al and friends. But it will never happen. As my dad always said, "wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills up first."

The entire scam is how they intend to make money on the basis of scientific theory. They intend to compute ones carbon impact and charge you a fee that will go to a company that will supposedly offset your carbon impact with green remedies. Get ready to have your wallets cleaned out with higher prices and litigation costs.

If this scheme ever takes off, it will be disaster for the U.S. economy.

The video was not produced by the BBC. It was produced by their competition, Ch. 4 in London. The BBC wouldn't put out a hard-hitting expose like that in a million years.

Just finished watching the whole thing. This ought to be required viewing in all classrooms. Lots of powerful arguments against the prevailing theory. Especially interesting were the arguments that showed temperature rises led rises in CO2 and not the reverse.

The torrent is a 55kb file with a bunch of server addresses, and you run it with a torrent client (list of clients in this FAQ but personally I'm partial to uTorrent).   You can get the movie documentary torrent from the above link ( http://www.mininova.org/get/617122 ) and then you use the torrent with the client to download the movie.  It's pretty straight forward --if you're running your internet through a router then it helps to assign a port but that's a different problem  --Freepmail me if that comes up.

Good luck!

The CO2 drives temps argument is the long pole in the tent of the GW hypothesis.

Once this is debunked the whole GW theory collapses like a cheap suit on a humid summer afternoon in Alabama.

Is that the way some people watch old "24" episodes--by downloading the torrent files?

I tried a search for "24" on the home page ( http://www.mininova.org ) and got http://www.mininova.org/search/?search=24 --plenty of '24' torrents, including episodes in french, spanish, german, etc.

The most important part of the Global Warming scam is that it is Man-Made.

Cause only Man can pay taxes. Or buy carbon offsets.

Al Capone, Jim and Tammy Faye and Ponzi were amateurs compared to Big Al Gorebull.

"Just finished watching the whole thing. This ought to be required viewing in all classrooms. Lots of powerful arguments against the prevailing theory. Especially interesting were the arguments that showed temperature rises led rises in CO2 and not the reverse."

This is, I think, one of the major points in the presentation. I think even young students would understand. That it is "Cause and Effect", Not "Effect and Cause". The cause necessarily has to occur first in order to produce an effect. If co2 increases cause atmospheric warming then the co2 increases MUST occur before the temperature increases.

The fact that global temperatures decreased for forty years or so after WWII when man-made co2 was increasing rapidly was enough for me to conclude that co2 is not causing the temperature to increase.

"major points"

I was happy some of the objections I had to gw hysteria were made by scientists in the doc. Like the one about much warmer temperatures during the middle ages when the Vikings settled and farmed a very warm Greenland. And the fact that there is no record of subsequent flooding of coastal European towns due to the very warm weather. But what could quickly kill the whole gw hysteria is the one about rising temperatures preceeding CO2 buildups. If the gw hystericrats can't rebut that one, their gw circus has to fold its tents.

Because no one really cares.

And because the Mods don't have time to fix every one of my stupid errors (that would be a full time job in and of itself). The error is corrected within the thread.

Besides, Thomas Sowell made the same mistake in his column, so I'm in good company.

Bump this documentary to the TOP!

This 73 minute documentary debunks Algore's theory and hysteria within the first 20-30 minutes but fully crushes it by the end. Key findings:

The incidence of CO2 in the atmosphere LAGS temperature rise by about 800 years.

Oceans produce the most CO2, especially when the weather is warming (due to sun activity). And the oceans absorb CO2 when temperatures are cooling.

Temperatures were cooling from 1940 to around 1975 -- during the HEIGHT of Industrialization and the Post-World War 2 boom.

Sun-spot activity is almost perfectly correlated with temperature variation. The most logical explanation for climate change is: Sun activity produces varying amoungs of cosmic rays; these affect the oceans and produce more clouds; more clouds help trap heat and cause global warming.

Another great correlation: there are now tens of thousands of jobs that are dependent upon Global Warming. Unfortunately, some of the blame can be assigned to Margaret Thatcher who, in the 1970's, wanted to move the UK away from dependence on oil (Mid-East terrorism and threats) and coal (coal miners striking). A Swede noted that man-made CO2 would result in global warming -- Thatcher grasped at that theory and gave it a budget for research. That was the start.

Another correlation: funding for research into global warming in the US was around $180MM per year before 1988; then it started getting more and more funding and went to over $2 billion from 1990 on. This correlation also tracks the hippies, peaceniks and ecology-freaks: when Communism fell, they needed a new political cause to fight capitalism, globalization, and America -- thus was born Global Warming.

Finally, a great consequence: third world countries will continue to languish in poverty because the UN and others want to deny them the help to develop cheap power and industrialize their countries. The Eco-Freaks like to romanticize living the simple life -- unfortunately, the life-expectancy of these poor countries is pitifully low.

Great piece. Here's another link:
