A Convenient Truth?

Hey, I thought that might be the perfect title for this upcoming effort at counterspinning Al Gore's so- called documentary An Inconvenient Truth. But, I suppose The Great Global Warming Scandal is a good a name as any.

At this point it seems it's only being shown on british television but maybe since the Washington Times ran a story on it today some U.S. Networks may want to air the show as well. If not, I used to be able to watch BBC shows every now and then on C- Span. Wonder if maybe C- Span will run it?

Then again, I never watched Gore's flick so, in the interest of fairness, maybe I should pass on this one? That, of course, assumes it gets shown in this country to begin with and, with this show being as politically incorrect as it is, it might have a tough row to hoe trying to get airtime in this country.

I think you should check this out Fred before you rush to any judgement.

Sounds like someone in the Pentagon has been reading some of Paul Ehrlich's books of doom from way back when.

Leonidas has some Ehrlich predictions and quotes on his blog this morning:

What I find funny is the fact that the 'Documentary' does admit there is climate change happening, that's why the CO2 is so high. Not from human causes. The new Spin of the right. I'm sure once the talking points are out to all the 'Non-Biased' think tanks. we'll be hearing more of it all over the blogosphere.

Not many take the position that climate changes do not occur except in strawman arguments to discredit their opponents. Maybe derchoadus can assign his/her pupils to read the series of articles in Canada's National Post (a "right wing" rag) on the growing number of skeptical scientists who are bailing off the warmista bandwagon. Pay particular attention to the scientific credentials at the end of each of the 13 articles.

Read 'em. Like they said, the climate is changing, and CO2 is going up. Ice is melting at both poles. They just don't think man is the culprit. Natch.

Who said I was a teacher? The only pupils I have are in in my eyes.

Rather than pass on both, why not watch both?

I'm told that a big name global warming skeptic was convinced by Gore's book of the same title.

The higher the C0-2 level the better the plants like it. Tree huggers should be in orgasim over it. Hell the dumb asses might even take a bath in celebration.

Maybe we should sue the local garden shops for making and selling CO2 generators?

derchoadus; you have stated you are a "scientist" (would that be a social scientist?) but have declined to provide us with your credentials for fear of being "outed". We are therefore obliged to accept your dismissal of all skeptics of the warmista religion who provide verifiable credentials as "right wing" extremists? We are your pupils. Help us out! Or shall we switch to the subject of DDT? DDT: A Case Study in Scientific Fraud, Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons 2004;9(3):83–8.

Looks like "pupils" applies in either case.

Any nit wit that uses the word "warmista" definitely comes off as a right wing extremist; pretty dumb, as well.

According to NASA, the ice caps on Mars are receding too.

Stop it Fred, yer killin' me. hehe

Leonidas, it would be like teaching evolutionary theory to born again christians.....

We can agree to disagree.

P.S. So when do you think Libby will get his pardon?

"Leonidas, it would be like teaching evolutionary theory to born again christians....."
Derchoadus, you are confusing teaching with preaching. Christianity and evolutionary theory are not mutually exclusive.

"...So when do you think Libby will get his pardon?" Maybe he won't need one. Ask Marc Rich.

No, christians confuse teaching with preaching. Same for muslims.

Marc Rich should be in prison. So should scooter, dick and carl.

And George, and that whole group of Jews that pushed us into this stupid war for Israel's benefit, his cabal.

So its all the Jew's fault is it? I'd say the most cost effective way to slow global warming would be to stop any more of the CO2 that you exhale. Even if global warming isn't affected, the world would be a better place.

Sueings not good enough. The only answere is Death for Parking Tickets.
