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

The best line was from a scientist, who when commenting on how global warming alarmists disregard two of the most important factors in global temperatures - THE SUN and water vapor from oceans, said, "It's like your car breaks down and to try and determine the problem you disregard the engine, which is the sun, or the transmission, which is water vapor, and you focus on a single lug nut on one of your rear tires. The science is that bad!"
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.
The viewer can if he wishes delve into the science much deeper by visitng the extras section of the DVD where among other things will be found a very detailed but understandable university lecture given at the University of Carlton in Ottawa, Canada. Using scientific data collected from sediment cores, we are shown how over history the sun and not CO2 controls climate change and we see how cosmic rays also play an important function. In particular focus is the sun's eleven year sunspot cycle. The sunspot cycle correlates far better with the world's temperature changes than does CO2. In fact there really is no correlation between temperature and CO2.
My wife and I would urge everyone who cares about our modern way of life and the world's poor to get this eye-opening presentation. It is well worth the money.
Having also seen the DVD Global Warming or Global Governance and Mine Your Own Business, I would say that these along with The Great Global Warming Swindle would give the viewer a good overall view of how global environmentalism works and why it is merely a belief system, or religion, though a very dangerous and oppressive one.
Secondly, the product is highly edited from the original format as presented on "you tube", to the tune of roughly one-half the content, much of which is greatly integral to the whole message of the original; i.e., it is very diluted by the time it reaches the consumer. As such it is overpriced and reduced to private viewing by the consumer on one's PC. I purchased this product in order to offer it to a
men's discussion group meeting. Obviously, that was not possible. My only recourse was to hand it around to group members for
their private viewing via personal PC's. Upon discovering that the product contained only one-half its purported content, that half-baked solution seemed no longer viable. I would uncharitably describe this thing as a rip-off.
