The Great Global Warming Swindle

This documentary film was shown on Britain's Channel 4 last week.It provides a compelling refutation to a lot of the hysteria sweeping the globe.Climate change is a reality, and always has been. It is human caused global warming that is increasingly in doubt.
Professor Phillip Stott addresses the issues in a recent article (excerpts):
March 9, 2007 — From the Babylon of Gilgamesh to the post-Eden of Noah, every age has viewed climate change cataclysmically, as retribution for human greed and sinfulness.

In the 1970s, the fear was "global cooling." The Christian Science Monitor then declaimed, "Warning: Earth's climate is changing faster than even experts expect," while The New York Times announced, "A major cooling of the climate is widely considered inevitable." Sound familiar? Global warming represents the latest doom-laden "crisis," one demanding sacrifice to Gaia for our wicked fossil-fuel-driven ways.

To be fair, we should point out that Carl Wunsch, one of the scientists interviewed in the "Great Swindle" film, claims he was misrepresented. His complaint here.

The film is 1 hour 15 minutes and is highly recommended.
