+5 #1 Laz 2010-05-30 16:41 This movie sounds like a bunch of world government propaganda. It's got everyone from New World Order lackey Mikhail Gorbachev to the liar Al Gore in it. Since the release of the Climategate emails and Lord Monckton destroying the global warming fanatics in the Oxford debate I'm surprised that there is anyone left who actually believes in this bullshit anymore. Less government is what will save us, not more government. Quote
 
 
+3 #2 Patrick Miller 2010-07-05 11:13 Yes, this is pure propaganda. There is no global warming. There is only the drive to tax everyone for co2 (breathing) to fund a new global govt. Sounds insane, yes, but it's all on paper. Al Gore's testimonies in US Congress define exactly what I have just written. Find it, watch it, read it, you'll feel like an idiot for believing any of the global warming crap like this turd of a "documentary". Quote
 
 
-1 #3 MorgainePen 2011-05-22 07:50 Yes, of course, it's all just propaganda! 98% of the world's climate scientists agree that anthropogenic climate change is well underway and catastrophic effects coming much sooner than expected (we are already seeing them), but it MUST be propaganda, right?

Because, as George Monbiot has documented impeccably, every bit of the climate change "skepticism" science was funded by Exxon Mobil and other big oil industries.

Let's see, who has more to gain from propagating either fraud? The world's top scientists? Or oil executives?

Really, is critical thinking just COMPLETELY DEAD?

Yeah, consensus is science, and you talk about critical thinking? Besides, there is no consensus. If anything the tide is turning, 31,000 scientists have already rejected global warming:

http://www.petitionproject.org/

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Carbon dioxide is a beneficial gas and not harmful in the least. Your worshiping IPPC "science" which is a bunch of bullshit. I guess you never got wind of the Climate Gate scandal? It proved that they were fudging the numbers, perverting the peer review process, hiding data, and bunch of other unscientific practices.

As for oil executives, more bullshit. Wait until you're being taxed for every mile you drive and every breath you take, then talk about profit motives. Critical thinking means you actually research both sides of the coin and make an informed decision. You haven't done that so don't talk about critical thinking.

-1 #5 hanunn 2011-05-31 15:18 @Laz How fitting that you would reference one of the most notoriously bad efforts by global warming deniers. The Petition Project is full of inconsistencies , duplicate signatures, phony signatures, and has been disavowed by the NAS. Many of the those that signed it are in other fields than science, including veterinarians, and some of the real scientists that signed it back in 1999 have reversed their stand on global warming.

Speaking of critical thinking, did you do ANY research other than looking at the Petition's homepage?

It has triggered wildfires that have engulfed large tracts in California, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas. It has brought severe droughts to the Southwest, parts of China and the Amazon. It has caused massive flooding along the Mississippi as well as in Australia, New Zealand, China and Pakistan. It is killing off the fish stocks in the oceans and obliterating the polar ice caps. Steadily rising sea levels will eventually submerge coastal cities, islands and some countries. These disturbing weather patterns presage a world where it will be harder and harder to sustain human life. Massive human migrations, which have already begun, will create chaos and violence."

The failed grain harvests in Russia, China and Australia, along with the death of the winter wheat crop in Texas, have, as McKibben points out, been exacerbated by the inability of Midwestern farmers to plant corn in water-logged fields."

+4 #9 TW1212 2011-10-14 23:20 The climate has changed from one extreme to the other long before humans were even around. At times a third of the earth was covered in ice, then it would melt, wiping out species as the pendulum swung back and forth. The Earth's history is a violent one, with a number of mass extinction events, life bounced back, unstoppable. Asteroids, super volcanoes, mile thick ice sheets, earthquakes, life continued and evolved. Maybe "our" world is in danger but I do not fear for the Earth, it is a violent beast that on occasion gives life on it a brief respite. Quote

I like your thought on the matter. The earths' condition is very cyclical but the problem is not that the cycle is continuing. The problem is that we've changed the concentrations of a fragile solution that make up our atmosphere; something that's never been seen before by any point of history. So we don't really know what to expect. If we could all go on living just fine on a warmer planet I couldn't care less about CO2 emissions but that's just not so unfortunately. There are also other emissions that aren't commonly discussed such as methane from the ridiculous number of cows on the planet relative to prehistoric numbers, and how we now feed them makes a huge difference.
