'The Great Global Warming Swindle' swindle

This is old news, unfortunately it appears AGWHoaxers are steadfastly ignoring the accumulating evidence and now that Republicans have taken over the House they are redoubling their attacks on climate science.

Therefore, I think it is timely to share an excellent resource for examining point by point the many claims made by Martin Durkin's film, 'The Great Global Warming Swindle.'

The Great Global Warming Swindle” is itself a Fraud and a Swindle
by Bill Butler

“The Great Global Warming Swindle” (DVD/video/movie) is a pseudo-documentary in which British television producer Martin Durkin has fraudulently misrepresented both the data involved and scientists who have researched global climate. Movie director Durkin has willfully misrepresented the facts about global warming just to advocate his own agenda. The program was originally aired on England’s “Channel 4” (The “Supermarket Tabloid” of the airwaves). In the past, “Channel 4” has had to broadcast a prime-time apology for broadcasting another of Martin Durkin’s “sleazebag” pseudo-documentaries.

“The Great Global Warming Swindle” is aimed at and appeals to the “Don’t bother me with the facts - I’ve already made up my mind” audience. There may be future media presentations by those who wish to promote ignorant political viewpoints instead of presenting factual knowledge.

The one cardinal rule in science is that you do not misrepresent the data. But this is what the producer of this pseudo-documentary has done to try to promote his own opinions.
Durangobill's website offers an excellent starting point for folks wanting to discuss the great global warming swindle movie.
