Wow... I just finished watching this movie.

Very well done examination of the global warming alarmists and the very tragic and real human cost of their political efforts in the developing world.

Their agenda is clear:

"We have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we may have."

-- Stephen Schneider, a leading advocate of the global warming theory in an interview for Discover magazine in 1989

Anyways, check it out.

You da' man, Soph! I am sitting on a pile of data on this topic, but must wait a couple weeks to have time to properly draw it all out.

This is the big story of the day.

Al Gore - poor old Al - is going to come off looking like a fool on this issue. Talk about a walking exhibit of horrificly bad timing ...

The whole "global warming caused by mankind" issue will go down in history as an episode of comic mass brainwashing.

I just saw it last night. It was definitely awesome. Even my six-year-old wants to watch!

Is there any way I can save it from Google to a writeable DVD? Maybe My software ain't cutting it, but I'm not sure. The station's web site won't let you "rent" it unless you are in the UK or ireland.

hmmm, yes, I want to be rich rich! hmmm, I could be a surgeon and make millions! I could be a businessman, or a trial lawyer, and make billions! no, no... I've got it! I'll become an environmental scientist and orchestrate an elaborate global deception in order to bilk the research funding apparatus a few thousand dollars at a time! YES!!!

O brave new world, That has such paranoia in't!

We all know the earth has been warming since the Little Ice Age. Even Jefferson remarked on it in his Notes On the State of Virginia:

"Both heats and colds are become much more moderate within the memory even of the middle-aged. Snows are less frequent and less deep. They do not often lie, below the mountains, more than one, two, or three days, and very rarely a week. They are remembered to have been formerly frequent, deep, and of long continuance. The elderly inform me the earth used to be covered with snow about three months in every year. The rivers, which then seldom failed to freeze over in the course of the winter, scarcely ever do so now. This change has produced an unfortunate fluctuation between heat and cold, in the spring of the year, which is very fatal to fruits. From the year 1741 to 1769, an interval of twenty-eight years, there was no instance of fruit killed by the frost in the neighbourhood of Monticello. An intense cold, produced by constant snows, kept the buds locked up till the sun could obtain, in the spring of the year, so fixed an ascendency as to dissolve those snows, and protect the buds, during their developement, from every danger of returning cold. The accumulated snows of the winter remaining to be dissolved all together in the spring, produced those overflowings of our rivers, so frequent then, and so rare now."

Mars is warming, too: http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/mars_ice-age_031208.html

There is evidence that sunspot activity is to blame: http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/sunspot_record_041027.html

It appears that the recent Channel 4 and More4 documentary "The Great Global Warming Swindle" has left many viewers doubting that today's climate change is largely humanly caused. In this email, anyone so affected by the programme is urged to view the following information:

1. An introduction to the flaws of the programme. http://climatedenial.org/2007/03/09/the-great-channel-four-swindle/ (or Google "climate denial", go to 9 Mar post.)

2. How a similar docu on Channel 4 by the same director Martin Durkin in 1997 was rapped by the ITC, in particular for misleading four featured interviewees and distorting their views. See Parags. 8-11 of http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/story/0,,2001694,00.html

3. Prof. Carl Wunsch says: I was misled and misrepresented in the 'swindle' documentary http://news.independent.co.uk/environment/climate_change/article2347526.ece

4. http://www.realclimate.org/index.php?p=414 (or Google "Realclimate", go to 9 Mar post.) Climate scientists' view of some of the key flawed or discredited claims made by the programme (some of which you may have seen elsewhere). A site praised by Scientific American, with explanations for the medieval grapes, why Thames stopped freezing, and loads more.

5. http://www.hipforums.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3268874#post3268874 - with THAT graph clearly explained, plus a clear guide to the links of some of the interviewees.

6. Royal Society and science academies around the world joint statement on climate change: http://www.royalsoc.ac.uk/news.asp?id=3226 (or via Google "Royal Society").

7. A blog discussion on the programme, including details of apparent breaches of the Broadcasting Code, and how to complain. http://portal.campaigncc.org/node/1820 (or Google "Climate Campaign Portal".)
