The real global warming swindle: the DVD costs £9.99

The makers of Channel 4 documentary the Great Global Warming Swindle, which handed a comfort blanket to all those people who wanted to kid themselves that Global Warming wasn’t really happening, are about to cash in on their propaganda prog by bringing out their programme – presumably including the graphs that had to be corrected after it was first broadcast – on DVD.

So I can’t think of a better time to flag up this document, produced by my former colleagues at the UK’s national science academy The Royal Society. It paints an accurate picture of the scientific consensus on climate change, and provides a pretty thorough rebuttal to the programme.

  • A good article. Reasoned and based on facts.

    Why can we not do that sort of thing more rather than applaud the scare mongering of Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’?

    We need reasoned debate about the consequences of climate change and our responses and the effects of our actions on people’s lives and other aspects of our environment.

    We need to realise that environmentalism is not a coherent whole – actions to prevent one environmental problem can cause an increase in another. Some actions may have a long run effect which is detremental to people which will then cause them to neglect their environment.

    The Liberal Democrats have the makings of a decent environmental policy, we just need to make sure it is fully evidence based and consistent with liberalism and not just following received wisdom and fad and being dictatorial and authoritarian.

    “about to cash in on their propaganda”

    A bit harsh, Rob. I think all production companies sell their programmes on DVD now, don’t they?

    Your moral outrage at the programmes content is understandable, but it is overdone when aimed at the sale of the DVD.

    You might as well suggtest that all books casting doubt on global warming should be distributed for free.
