The Great Global Warming Swindle

Skip American Idol tonight and spend an hour watching The Great Global Warming Swindle. It was broadcast last month on BBC, but if you live in the USA, you didn't have an opportunity to see it.

This documentary doesn't just provide some conflicting evidence to the global warming debate, it decimates the entire argument. The most basic premise of the global warming swindle - the one thing that must be true for any of the conclusions to be logical - is patently false. Increases in atmospheric CO2 concentration do not cause warming temperatures. Read that again. If that statement is true, and this documentary provides an abundance of scientific proof, then there is no reason to even have a debate about global warming. It's an obvious deception.

Nobel prize-nominated Al Gore, who received my presidential vote in 2000, stands in front of a chart during his movie An Inconvenient Truth. It is one of the few (only?) moments where he is leaning heavily on science to make his point. The chart shows two lines: atmospheric CO2 concentration (determined from ice core samples) and temperature. These two lines, overlayed, show an amazing correlation. Al says that while the relationship between the two is "complicated", the correlation is clear. And he's right.

The "complication" that he's failed to mention, is that he shifted one of the lines by 800 years. And it's not in the direction you'd think...increased CO2 concentrations do not lead increased temperatures by 800 years, but increased temperatures actually lead increased CO2 concentrations. Yes, that's correct. Increased air temperatures cause the ocean to release CO2 into the atmosphere, while reduced air temperatures cause the ocean to absorb it. So the relationship between the two is exactly the inverse of what greenhouse "science" would lead you to believe. Mr. Gore, sir...while I don't regret voting for you in 2000 (considering the alternative), you are either one ignorant son-of-a-bitch, or you are a bold-faced mother-fucking liar.

You need to understand this, so that you can laugh about this with your grandchildren in 30-40 years, with a clean conscience. There is no science behind the global warming scare. None. Nothing at all. There isn't a little bit of contradictory evidence. There aren't a few unexplained holes in their theory. Their entire argument, their most fundamental premise, is not just wrong, it's the polar opposite of what they've led you to believe. MAN-MADE GLOBAL WARMING IS COMPLETE BULLSHIT. It's as real as the boogeyman in your closet.

Hard to swallow, isn't it? Billions of people have bought into this lie...led by scientists, politicians, religious leaders, and the media. Opposition has been ridiculed and silenced. Speaking up against the global warming mantra is equivalent to heresy today.

It's a self-sustaining myth because the media loves catastrophe and governments spend billions in scientific grants to research it. But it doesn't end there. Not only is it unscientific, but it's got nothing at all to do with saving the environment. It is a populist conspiracy embraced by every anti-establishment, anti-capitalist, anti-US, anti-globalist, and anti-developmentalist crackpot out there.

The co-founder of Greenpeace has one more word for the global warming movement: anti-human.

These fuckers aren't tree-huggers, they are misanthropes.

Every time your family, your friends, and your co-workers repeat the global warming mantra, they are unwitting tools of this hateful, socialist plot to destroy wealth and increase human suffering. You want catastrophe? How about forcing Africa to rely on solar power to industrialize instead of the coal and oil resources within their ground? Every day that developing nations are delayed from exploiting their natural resources to improve their situation is a day that more people die of malnutrition, disease, and other preventable consequences of poverty. The global warming movement has already killed more people than man-made global warming ever will.

Watch the movie. Spread the word. Stop the madness.

Excellent show. Definitely worth the time to watch. However...

One of the folks in the show felt he was misquoted so much that he wrote a strong response to the show.

Other issues (including the 800 year T/CO2 lag) are discussed in more detail on another page.

It's a shame nobody can just stand up and say "The environment is a tightly coupled chaotic system, beyond our predictive capabilities."

(I would also rant about Cramer's inability to say the same about the stock market, but I know you're one of his fanboys :-))

Rebuck, those links are sweet. How sad that the ocean guy was duped/misquoted into representing something he didn't believe. And I fell for it! Watching that documentary, it seemed to me that the ocean guy was 100% supporting the asserting that T leads CO2. Bummer.

After diving into those links, I have to admit that the science involved with climate feedback loops is so far beyond my understanding that it renders me clueless about what is really going on. I total recommend the second link to anyone who's truly intested in (acronym alert) AGW.

I don't want to be someone who only sees evidence that aligns with my pre-determined viewpoint, but even if you throw out this documentary completely, there's still quite a bit about this AGW crowd that yanks my chain. I may post again on it, once I've had a chance to poke around a little more and collect my thoughts.

I might even apologize to Al. (I know he's waiting with baited breath for my apology.)

1. A person who is completely loyal to a game or company regardless of if they suck or not.
2. A pathetic insult often used by fanboys themselves to try and put down people who don't like whatever it is they like.

Rebuck - see #2.

Whoa. One of three parts (I noticed you left out the third part) of one the 40 definitions for a word on urbandictionary is the "I know you are but what am I?" definition. I'm devastated.

For what it's worth, I have no idea how devoted you are to Cramer's advice. I used the word fanboy more for literary flair than to suggest that you follow Cramer blindly. Stock market sages bug me as much as Global Climate sages, so I couldn't resist.
