Must-See Global Warming TV
Fox News Online ^ | March 18, 2007 | Steven Milloy

Posted on 03/18/2007 9:33:49 AM PDT by Afronaut

As Al Gore’s movie “An Inconvenient Truth” becomes mandatory viewing for many U.S. school children and nears becoming the “official truth” about global warming, it comes as most welcome news that an absolutely gripping film rebuttal has made its international debut, much to the chagrin of true believers in man-made climate change.

Last week, the UK’s Channel 4 premiered a 75-minute film entitled, “The Great Global Warming Swindle.” Through interviews with prize-winning climate experts and others, this masterful documentary explains the origins of global warming alarmism; debunks claims of man-made global climate change; exposes the motivations of organizations, scientists and activists sounding the alarm; and explains why it’s been extremely difficult, if not downright dangerous, for climate scientists to question global warming orthodoxy publicly.

At about the same time, as Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore explains on-camera, environmentalism became more extreme. By the mid-1980s, environmental goals – e.g., clean air and clean water – had become so mainstream that activists had to adopt more extreme positions to remain anti-establishment.

Then when the Berlin Wall fell and the Cold War ended, many “peace-niks” and political activists moved over to environmental activism, bringing their “neo-Marxist” political philosophy with them. As Moore puts it, environmentalism became the “new guise for anti-capitalism.”

Global warming alarmism was thus borne from this combination of official British policy, environmentalism’s rejection of its own success and political opportunism by “unemployed” left-wing political activists.

I watched this whole show this morning. It is worth watching. Also if you google the Ttitle he Great Global Warming Swindle there is also some good reading.

It is no wonder that Rudy and Arnie subscribe to this garbage,

Forcing little kids to watch al-Gore's money-making, propaganda piece is nothing more than domestic terrorism. We have already heard how the school kids in England can't sleep at night because al-Gore and his environazis have scared them so bad. Now they are telling us that the kids in this country are under so much stress and pressure that they won't be required to do homework anymore. This has to stop. Let them be kids! Stop al-Gore's domestic terrorism!

Frostbite, equipment damage end latest Bancroft-Arnesen trek

PATRICK CONDON
Associated Press

SCOTT TAKUSHI, PIONEER PRESS
Anne Bancroft - Pioneer Press archive photo from March 2004.

A North Pole expedition meant to bring attention to global warming was called off after one of the explorers got frostbite.

The explorers, Ann Bancroft and Liv Arnesen, on Saturday called off what was intended to be a 530-mile trek across the Arctic Ocean after Arnesen suffered frostbite in three of her toes, and extreme cold temperatures drained the batteries in some of their electronic equipment.

"Ann said losing toes and going forward at all costs was never part of the journey," said Ann Atwood, who helped organize the expedition.

On Monday, the pair was at Canada's Ward Hunt Island, awaiting a plane to take them to Resolute, Canada, where they were to return to Minneapolis later this week.

Bancroft, 51, became the first woman to cross the North Pole on a 1986 expedition. She and Arnesen, 53, of Oslo, Norway, were the first women to ski across Antarctica in 2001.

But the latest trek got off to a bad start. The day they set off from Ward Hunt Island, a plane landing near the women hit their gear, punching a hole in Bancroft's sled and damaging one of Arnesen's snowshoes.

They repaired the snowshoe with binding from a ski, but Atwood said the patch job created pressure on Arnesen's left foot, which led to blisters that then turned into frostbite.

Then there was the cold - quite a bit colder, Atwood said, then Bancroft and Arnesen had expected. One night they measured the temperature inside their tent at 58 degrees below zero, and outside temperatures were exceeding 100 below zero at times, Atwood said.

"My first reaction when they called to say there were calling it off was that they just sounded really, really cold," Atwood said.

She said Bancroft and Arnesen were applying hot water bottles to Arnesen's foot every night, but had to wake up periodically because the bottles froze.

The explorers had planned to call in regular updates to school groups by satellite phone, and had planned online posts with photographic evidence of global warming. In contrast to Bancroft's 1986 trek across the Arctic with fellow Minnesota explorer Will Steger, this time she and Arnesen were prepared to don body suits and swim through areas where polar ice has melted.

Atwood said there was some irony that a trip to call attention to global warming was scuttled in part by extreme cold temperatures.

"They were experiencing temperatures that weren't expected with global warming," Atwood said. "But one of the things we see with global warming is unpredictability."

Are there any plans for any media outlet in the US (like Fox, CNN or the Science cable outlet) to show this film? Or is this a dumb question?

A few days ago, there was a story in the Seattle Times saying that global warming enthusiasts had vastly overstated the reduction in the Cascade mountain snow pack in recent years. They had been claiming a reduction of 50%, but the story said the reduction is actually between 5 and 30%, depending on which data you look at.

Limbaugh said last week that some school is threatening parents if they don't come to see the movie, too.

These multiple postings are having a real, salutary effect. Google has a statistical box beside the film that shows how many separate viewing there have been. Right now it's up to a total of about 270,000, with most of the hits in the last 2 or 3 days. That still makes it a lot less than the number of people who watch Fox News or CNN, but it's definitely creping up on the number who've watched Gore's monstrosity. My only complaint is that somehow the people who printed the film got the lip snyc way off.

There was an episode of Penn & Teller's show that took on Global Warming on Google, but I can't find it so they must have taken it down. It was really good, they took on all the nut jobs. They went to an Earthday rally and got everyone there to sign a petition to ban dihydro oxide (H2O).

The documentary is about an hour. It is a must view. But if you can't hang with it check out around 23 min or so into it when they destroy the basic tenets of Al Gore's man-made global warming theory - CO2 - and whether CO2 is causing warming or is the result of warming.

If schools would show "Tbe Great Global Warming Swindle", as well as Al's fantasy, I think kids would make up their own minds that Al and his crowd are out to lunch.

I don't know if Al's movie has been shown in local schools or not. Yesterday we found a note by our front door hand written, obviously by a child, that said the following. "Help Save Air Polution Don't want a storm don't drive as much, so I'm here to remind you, do not drive as much. Don't Drive As Much (DDaM inc)

Might be a good time to have DDaM Inc. charged with tresspassing and littering. I would.

"polar bears"

As an example of the hysteria caused by the gw doomists, I've had to inform at least two or three people that polar bears are not in danger of extinction after they expressed horror at their possible demise. I quoted Matt Taylor, one of the world's leading polar bear experts, who was quite upset with the polar-bears-are-becoming-extinct- crowd. In fact he affirmed polar bears have actually increased in numbers during the last century and can adapt quite well to warmer weather. My explanation was met with cold stares by the people I related this info to. No, they had heard about the bears becoming extinct on tv, so it must be true.

Quite an interesting film. It's thesis is that sun activity drives temperatures on Earth. No doubt that has been the case, and the evidence demonstrated that. But has it been the case in the last 20 years. Look at the chart below. Just why has the green line bounced up dramatically (temperature), while the red line (solar activity) moved just a tiny bit? The pic of the draft is from the film itself, but the little lucunae to which I refer was not addressed.

I watched it on the LittleGreenFootballs site. It was fascinating, and was presented in a very understandable way - not a lot of scientific terms, and those which were used were clearly explained.

Hi, nice article on Global warming. I'm responding to it now :)

I am Eric Chua, a Singaporean currently residing in Australia, I am also an author on this issue and you can find my articles on my website.
www.outerheavens.blogspot.com

I have a proposal on solving Global Warming that is pending for publishing if it gets enough votes, you can read the proposal at the link below and please do vote if you like it.

http://www.changethis.com/proposals/918

It's about using the Secret of the Law of Attraction to gather people
to help solve the Global Warming Issue. However, this proposal can
only be published if it gets enough votes.

Please do help spread the word around. Thanks!

Regards,
Eric Chua
