The Great Global Warming Swindle

Thursday, July 12th, 2007

Hot stuffSo, the ABC is screening The Great Global Warming Swindle. It showed earlier this year in the UK and caused quite a stir.

The show contains many factual errors. It also appears to deliberately mislead the audience. I would think that in measuring the quality of a documentary, telling lies and misleading the audience would give it pretty low marks. It’s a shame the ABC has decided to show a documentary that is obviously not up to scratch.

After the fake moon landings, and 9/11 conspiracy shows, it’s clear these shows can be very persuasive. Believing in those other conspiracies is kind of fun, but believing in this one could result in our own demise. Bummer!

After the show, Tony Jones is going to get stuck into the writer and director Martin Durkin, which should prove entertaining. And the scientists who actually specialise in climate change will get a chance to balance the ledger.

It’s unfortunate that this show gives the impression of doubt. Because in reality there is so very little.

Find a climate action group

It’s a chance to talk to like minded people about the best way forward. Climate movement has a google map of climate change action groups so you can find a local one.
