Product Description

The Great Global Warning Swindle DVD A documentary by Martin Durkin ASIN: Boo1C17EVE

Review

The Great Global Warming Swindle should be seen by everyone interested in the global environment, especially those who have seen the Al Gore movie. --Professor William M. Gray, meteorologist

The Global Warmers have had their day. For years they have blamed ordinary folk for just about every environmental disaster known to man. But now, at last, the truth is out. Watch The Great Global Warming Swindle and be amazed. --Editorial, Sunday Express

Only very rarely can a documentary be seen as a pivotal moment in a major political debate, but such is The Great Global Warming Swindle. Never before has there been such a devastating authoritative account of how the hysteria over global warming has parted company with reality. Martin Durkin's superbly professional film shows how the evidence is now overwhelming that the chief cause of climate change is not human activity, but changes in radiation from the sun. --Christopher Booker, Sunday Telegraph

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.

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.

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.

The Great Global Warming Swindle (DVD)

With scientific explanations that the layman can understand, experts in climatology show very clearly why global warming hysteria is based upon little or no science and is mainly a belief or a religion. This religion impacts us all, but as the movie shows, its greatest and saddest impact is upon the world's dire poor in Africa and elsewhere around the globe.

My wife and I are very glad to have our own copy of The Great Global Warming Swindle. Not only is the science well explained, but so also are the origins of the movement that blames CO2 and man for global warming. The global warming movement is less about science than it is about major social and economic change that would take us back at least to the mid-ninteenth century if not to the middle ages. The movement is actually opposed to the prosperity of developed countries, so they are very anti-business and anti-industry (and sometimes violently so, as we have seen in the news). But, and this is the kicker, the thing that makes the movie very sad in places, the global warming movement is also very much against the world's poor improving their lot. The global warming movement is one of the world's oppressors of the poor, insisting that they do without any electricity or any modern conveniences, so that they might remain so-called "happy peasants". The environmentalists do not have a realistic view of the plight of the poor.
