Google Video Does Global Warming
Thanks to CLS, over at the Classically Liberal blog, for the heads up on this one: The Great Global Warming Swindle is now available on Google Video. That being the british documentary I mentioned here a short time ago which was billed as a counter to Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth. Will any of the U.S. television networks run the show?
My guess is they won't, especially having seen something in the Times- Standard's Entertainment section the other day about An Inconvenient Truth going to be aired on one of the U.S. networks. Seems to me, it might have been the Discovery Channel that would be running it. I might be wrong on that, though.
Interesting, and actually somewhat frightening, to me that they'd release Gore's flick right after the airing of The Great Global Warming Swindle. Suspicious timing as I see it. Are we worried about an opposing view getting some attention?
I can't help but see a parallel between the man caused climate change campaign and the build up to the invasion of Iraq.
Back before we invaded Iraq, we were given all kinds of reasons for attacking Iraq, via the powers- that- be. There must have been a dozen arguments thrown out for attacking Iraq hoping that everyone would accept at least one of them. Arguments in opposition were either downplayed or ignored altogether.
Seems to me the same is happening with this Global Warming issue going all the way to the point where it's being renamed Climate CHANGE so just about any weather phenomena can be attributed to supposed human effect on climate.
I would think the zeal with which the Global Warming crowd is pushing the issue, it being along the same lines of our march to war with Iraq, should give even environmentalists cause for concern.
