The Great Global Warming Swindle

    Scientists who work on climate science and publish in scientific journals say that global warming/climate change (GW/CC) is for real. I’ve been reading them, especially in Nature and Science, the consensus is in. There may be some quibbles about the details but the general picture is clear, esp on the role of CO2. If the scientists in the film publish their work in scientific journals I would have seen them.

    Prof R.Lindzen of MIT does work on metereology but I distrust him or anyone like him who is paid/funded by the fossil fuel industry, which of course claim they are blameless for GW/CC.
    Anyway, I’ve not seen his recent publications on GW/CC.

    Similarly with Patrick Michaels, Frederick Seitz, and Frederick Singer: they are funded by the fossil industry. These are just some people I’ve heard of, the others could similarly be so funded. See funding, for example, Lindzen and Singer:

    Carl Wunsch of MIT says he was misrepresented in the film:

    What he actually believes: “I believe that climate change is real, a major threat, and almost surely has a major human-induced component.” The misrepresentation is such that it says “diametrically opposite to the point I was making — which is that global warming is both real and threatening in many different ways, some unexpected.”

    May be some of the others are also misrepresented?

    Patrick Moore may be a co-founder of Greenpeace but he is now in the opposite camp. He and his family run a logging company.

    See two rebuttals of the film:

    -http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2007/03/swindled/#comment-27434

    This film is largely discredited.
