If you have seen "An Inconvenient Truth", (and assuming you are not a scientist), then you absolutely must see "The Great Global Warming Swindle" in order to gain some perspective and balance. This documentary was produced by the BBC in response to the worldwide hysteria over global warming concerns. Because the average person cannot even solve a quadratic algebraic expression, it mystifies me as to how the same people are "convinced" that humans are destroying the planet. Water and air pollution I can understand, and I actively support programs to limit this kind of environmental damage. But the astounding theory that humans are heating up the planet through CO2 production has always seemed rather farfetched. But even assuming you have accepted this unconditionally after seeing Gore's film, I invite those of you with open minds to see this very well produced film which will take you through the history of the global warming movement and also demonstrate why this theory is simply wrong.

After watching GGWS, I see the debate is not over. There is more science in this presentation than in many of the other pro-global warming dvds, such as "Global Warming, the signs and the science" (which by the way was very painful to watch because Alanis Morissette is so bad.)

In this dvd, I was able to listen to the scientists, and see their research, and understand the research. Much of the data covers centuries of data. So many of the pro-global warming dvds and books are just glitz, and scare tactics with very little science, and shows very little research over long periods of time.

I highly recommend this dvd to anyone with a truly open mind.

It would be intellectually dishonest not to view this documentary if you have also seen the Al Gore movie. This film reopens a healthy and much needed debate over global warming. Make sure you see both sides of this issue and I think this documentary with a scientific basis, contrasted with the factual errors, glaring omissions and over-the-top hype surrounding Gore's movie may change your view on this issue. It seems a bit disconcerting and far from reassuring when one side doesn't allow any sort of open debate or fact based challenges to their arguments. A must see for those who think they understand this issue.

Look, I'm not a scientist but I do have some knowledge of history. Whenever someone engages me in a conversation about global warming I ask the following questions: Was it warmer or cooler when the dinosaurs roamed the earth? (correct answer: warmer) Was it warmer or cooler during the Middle Ages? (correct answer: warmer) What was the prevailing weather condition in the year that Washington crossed the Delaware? (correct answer: we were in the middle of The Little Ice Age). Do I believe in climate change? (yes) Do I think humans are responsible for it?(no). If we are, why is the planet Mars experiencing the same climate change as Earth? Seems to me I had an entire section in 5th grade science (in the 60's) opining about the impact of sun spots and solar wind on the climate of the earth.

My point is: this film is a push back from the scientific community that identifies the "global warming" contingent as a political and indeed pseudo religious movement. The premise is pretty interesting. I am already a convert but the data is pretty compelling - take a risk.

If I have learned anything in my nearly 20 years as a government scientist - I am a board-certified, PhD toxicologist - it is how to tell the difference between objective science and political propaganda, regardless of from which "side of the aisle" the B.S. is being flung. For those who actually care what Science really has to say about the global warming/climate change scare, I can assure them that this documentary is the real thing. (Which is probably why it is so hard to find a copy of it in this country.) As, for those who don't really care what the science says, unless it supports their preconceptions, I won't bother to waste my breath. That's another lesson that two decades as a government scientist has taught me.

. . The title and intro to this documentary can be a put off for those whom you might want to watch it, but the tone of the body of it is reasonable and informative. It includes the political history of the global warming movement, which began in Great Britain.
. . Some of the people interviewed do express exasperation and frustration at times, but considering their experiences and the situations they are talking about, that too is understandable; one of those is a co-founder of Green Peace.
. . It is definitely worth watching.

I consider myself a moderate when it comes to anything. I am a stout questioner of both sides of any subject, seeking facts and found this presentation of information and interviews to be clearly in line with level-headed, information based reporting.

When, I saw the Co-Founder of Greenpeace, a man of legend if you think about it, saying his peace about global warming, the film becomes a credible piece of work. A man who was part of the green movement speaks out on the subject and it makes sense.

The level of study provided is thorough and balanced.

The side for global warming is correct that air pollution is a problem. It's the reason for dirty air. Dirty air hurts our lungs. We all know this. And it is horrible that we mostly ignore this fact.

Martin Durkin does a great job of showing the trends of weather, with experts in the field. You learn that it is a natural phase of ice caps to melt and grow back over decades of time. He uses NASA satellite data of the changes to show this. This is arguable to many.

His explanation is sound and fairly easy to see and understand, even if you were the other way. Good footage. Good information. Cohesive ideas.

Margaret Thatcher...go figure...you'll know once you've seen it.

Knowledge is power.
