Skip to comments.The Great Global Warming Swindle (Watch whole British documentary)
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.
If that link doesn't work, try going to Powerline News:
And finding the video for the "Great Global Warming Swindle."
What do scientists know, I would rather listen to a guy that flunked out of divinty school!
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."
PING for later
Hey Al Gore...is the truth that your film was a piece of bogus, unscientific crap inconvenient for you?
BBC Documentary? Not exactly the fare one would expect from them. Next thing ya know PBS will be showing it, followed by CNN. Who woulda thunk?
If this scheme ever takes off, it will be disaster for the U.S. economy.>>>
Heck the entire worlds economy will faulter, if our economy sneezes the rest of the world's gets a cold.
Whoops. Sorry. Good show nonetheless.
Would you mind changing "BBC" to "British" in the title?
Well, they'll research possible remedies. Endlessly.
Well said. The lure of easy money has blinded these carbon traders into shooting a hole in their own boat. They will go down with everyone else.
Each "remedy" will have a higher and higher cost. Greed unrestrained will come back and bite them.
*GASP* Does that mean Algore is wrong (again) when he declares the debate over?
How does this work? What kind of program do I need to download a torrent?
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.
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.
I just downloaded it from Google Video...but I may still try the torrent.
Is that the way some people watch old "24" episodes--by downloading the torrent files?

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.
Bought at Cox's Men's Store?
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.
The video link below has real scientists not Green Goron Enviralist Druids pretending to be scientists. They shred Gorons Gorebull Warming bs:
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.
Please change the first line to read 'channel 4' ,NOT BBC.....it is still incorrect.
They are two different broadcasters
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.
Here's Thomas Sowell, distinguished Professor of Economics, making the same mistake:
The Great Global Warming Swindle...IS A MUST WATCH!!!!

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:
Hey, Neverdem... did you see this? 73 minutes of powerful debunking of global warming... The link in my reply shows the Google video version.
