RE: [DMCForum] Re: Global Warming Swindle



Oh, and I am sure I can find numerous websites that denounce everything in
Inconvenient Truth as well.

I haven't finished watching it yet. Might those people who denounce it be
of the mindset we are in a crisis? :-) Maybe they should have used a
really slick, well-known public servant so it would have been believed
without checking the facts.

"The funny thing is that this film can be shown to have done almost all of
the things it claims its opponents did to skew the data in the their favor,
plus a few more..."

Given this, which is why I stated previously I will not blatantly believe
either side, which side is correct? Why would anyone adhere to one side or
the other without trying to find all of the facts? I have said it so many
times now it has almost lost all meaning to me, but information is so easy
to find now, why don't more people do it?

>Think, research, think some more, then believe.

Believe what?

Ah yes, I remember this program now... I just started watching it and
I immediately recognized the propaganda from a report I read earlier
this year on it.

It is FULL of scientific holes, falsehoods and misrepresentations. 
See here for a full treatment of the subject:

<http://en.wikipedia
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Global_Warming_Swindle>
.org/wiki/The_Great_Global_Warming_Swindle>
.org/wiki/The_Great_Global_Warming_Swindle

Make sure you check out the sections "Reactions from scientists",
"Carl Wunsch Controversy" (where the MIT professor interviews in the
film claims to have been misled and taken out of context to make it
sound like he said the opposite of what he actually said), and
"Contributors to the programme", (where you can see that Tim Ball,
that ass-clown, is NOT a professor of ANYTHING at ANY university, as
he claimed in the film).

The film does have its bits of truth, but it was really badly
put-together, as anyone with a climate science background could
plainly see.

Here's a quick play-by-play of all the holes and controversy:

The funny thing is that this film can be shown to have done almost all
of the things it claims its opponents did to skew the data in the
their favor, plus a few more...

Think, research, think some more, then believe.
