[DMCForum] Re: Global Warming Swindle



For someone who claims to make decisions on hard facts, you sure do
seem bent on making this discussion personal.

I'm not sure why you keep talking about An Inconvenient Truth as
though it's my movie.  I never said anything about it, I never said I
agreed with its viewpoints, or that it was factually-based or
infallible.  I never quoted it, backed it, or even mentioned that I'd
seen it.

Furthermore, no matter how many websites you can find with proof that
Gore's "facts" were wrong, that doesn't make Durkin's film any less
bunk.  That's the issue here, and I'm not sure why you're diverting
attention from that.

And by the way, call me crazy, but unlike the opposing view, I have a
feeling that the theory of anthropogenic global warming has been
published in a few peer-reviewed scientific journals.  I can cite
title, issue, and page, if you'd like.

You'd better believe that both sides of this argument have been
politicized quite a lot more than this film would have you believe. 
It has become the new vogue to champion the cause of anti-global
warming, as it is insanely easy to get a ton of people snowballing
behind you.  It's a huge money-maker for film-makers (duh), public
speakers, "scientists", and obviously, companies whose primary income
comes from fossil fuels, like Big Oil.

Think about it.
