Yea but you're forgetting, politicians have superpowers..
All they need is money to get it done..
Thanks! This looks like a good one to add to my list.

Another example of celebrities promoting crap...they never stop..
To wrap it up?.... Global Bullshit..
This topic is one that is highly controversial, divisive, and misunderstood. It is also highly political and, at least here in America, is pretty clearly divided along partisan lines. Like most partisan issues, however, that divisiveness disappears the higher up the food chain you go. That in and of itself should be a warning sign. Don't believe in it? Then you are a "conspiracy theorist", said with such venom, derision and dismissiveness...because that is what the media preaches. Like many of my views, I do not follow party lines and I generally piss off both sides, but here goes anyway.
I was brought up to respect the environment. Reduce, reuse and recycle was a way of life, not a slogan. I do think there is much that man is doing that harms the environment and other creatures we share it with, not to mention other people, and much that we could do better to be good stewards of the earth. I do not believe that we are the cause of climate change, however. Also, humans are as much as part of nature as every other component, something that often seems to be overlooked.
As the film pointed out, climate change is big business (and government). There is lots of money to be made. Carbon credits are poised to become just another financial instrument to be traded at the casino on Wall Street. Carbon taxes are also an option, but if the emissions were truly going to cause the end of the world, what the hell good would taxing them ultimately do?
Scientists are largely dependent upon grant money doled out by governments and institutions with agendas, and those that are not are employed by governments and corporations with agendas. Scientists can be coerced by the threat of losing funding or even their careers. The inclusion of the names of those scientists who resigned and wanted no affiliation with the IPCC reporting is dishonest and reprehensible.
The real tragedy, as I see it, is that the claim of anthropomorphic climate change has been used to achieve agendas of greed and power of the few, and do so at the expense of the many, the integrity of our scientific community, and ultimately of the environment itself, as those who do not buy into anthropomorphic climate change quite often eschew all environmental efforts.
Thank you for your comprehensive and well presented summary of this issue. Whenever I have tried to explain this global warming hoax to people, their rebuttals to me are few and shortly cease after I counter each one with logical arguments. But since most of them have been brainwashed already I'm afraid that I haven't succeeded in converting very many of them.
I agree, and I don't think it's a coincidence that the big, well funded global environmental movement has been working to knock out a gas that is essentially a nutrient and beneficial to life, while ignoring actual pollution and other environmental problems which do represent a genuine threat to life. It's an almost perfect inversion of reality, I have a hard time beliving that's an accident.
I firmly believe it is intentional. I also believe that the majority of the people who believe in this are truly genuine in both their belief and their concern for the environment. They simply do not/cannot believe their governments, the UN and scientists would lie about such a thing. I understand that, too, to some extent. That first trip down the rabbit hole was...devastating, frightening, and sickening...and then the anger kicks in.
Ah the rabbit hole, yes it's an eye opener. It's funny you know, people will happily go to a horror movie, but they won't look into hidden truth because it's too scary. The way I see it, our natural desire to thrill seek has a proper place, and it's digging into those dark corners of reality. I've never found a horror movie satisfying, but there's a certain satisfaction in understanding the hidden aspects of reality. As unsettling as some of them may be, the greater Truth above it all (that they also don't want people to know) is comforting beyond measure. As Jesus pointed out, the truth will set you free.
...but they won't look into hidden truth because it's too scary.
True, I have actually had three people end discussions by telling me they would rather not know, it scared them too much.
I, too, would rather know and am more comfortable knowing...and that knowledge is freeing, imo. Seeking it out can become addictive though.
I didn't watch the movie. I believe in global warming. Sorry.
Origin and Etymology of ignorant
Ha. Just stuck for now in my opinion....
Did anybody else hear about the scientist, Dr. John Bates that just exposed the global warming scam (again)? I hope he has his retirement plans all made out and funded, because he will now be blackballed for life!
