Are you green? How many flights have you taken in the last year? Feeling guilty about all those unnecessary car journeys? Well, maybe there's no need to feel bad.
The filmâ€™s basic proposition is as simple as it is shocking. Despite everything youâ€™ve heard to the contrary, the theory that man made emissions of CO2 have any discernable effect on climate, has always lacked solid scientific evidence.
We've almost begun to take it for granted that climate change is a man-made phenomenon. But just as the environmental lobby think they've got our attention, a group of naysayers have emerged to slay the whole premise of global warming.
The prevailing global-warming view is that man-made emissions of carbon dioxide are largely responsible. This film, featuring leading academics in fields such as climatology, oceanography, meteorology and biogeography, questions the science behind the accepted reasons for global warming and argues that other explanations ? including the effect of the sunâ€™s radiation on the atmosphere ? are not being properly aired. It also asserts that the single-minded focus on reducing carbon emissions might have the unintended consequence of stifling development in the Third World, prolonging endemic poverty and disease.
The warming of the past 300 years represents a natural recovery from a â€˜little ice ageâ€™. It is mild, beneficial and cannot possibly have been caused by us humans. Yes, humans have an effect on climate, but itâ€™s an infinitesimally small pin-prick, compared with the vast natural forces which are constantly pushing global temperatures this way and that.
This film turns the world upside down, and uses an extraordinary cast of the worldâ€™s top scientists to do it. If the planet is heating up, it isn't your fault and there's nothing you can do about it
Itâ€™s the morality tale of the decade â€“ of politicians eager to pander to prejudice, throwing vast quantities of public cash into scientific research aimed at supporting an unsupportable theory. Itâ€™s a tale of scientists fearful of speaking out, of upsetting the funding applecart and jeopardising the many thousands of research jobs generated for them by the global warming scare.
Global Warming is indeed the biggest threat facing the world today, but not in the way you think.
# how the Sun is an overwhelming influence on continuous climate change over decades and centuries (there is no way for taxation or lifestyle fascism to alter the Sun's eruptivity and irradiance)
# how carbon dioxide levels are predominantly an effect and not a cause of climate change (a very inconvenient truth)
# why politicians have been so enthusiastic about embracing the fallacy of human impact on global climate (trojan horses aren't a protected species)
# what lies behind the green industry (courtesy of a founder member and former leader of Greenpeace)
# how forecasts of warming and its impacts are grossly exaggerated, with stasis and cooling ahead
75 min. long. A must see for everyone.
