Cognitive Dissonance on Global Warming Due in Britain Tomorrow If Strong Action Not Taken

Memo--Need to Know Only:

Modern westerners have forgotten how to read. When presenting information to them, it is vital to present the information on film, or video. Further, one must present only one side of the story. Presenting two or more sides to any story risks creating cognitive dissonance, which in an Idiocracy can bring down an entire government.

British television's Channel Four risks the horror of cognitive dissonance tomorrow by showing a documentary contradicting Al Gore's well-received documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," which won an American Film Oscar. The documentary is titled "The Great Global Warming Scandal."
A television documentary airing this week in Britain claims the greenhouse theory on global warming is a scam.

Filmaker Martin Durkin's documentary "The Great Global Warming Scandal" says the sun, and not human-generated greenhouse gases, is to blame for the increase in the Earth's temperature, The Washington Times reported.

Durkin says the greenhouse theory is "the biggest scam of modern times."

The program, scheduled for broadcast Thursday on Britain's Channel 4, features experts in climatology, oceanography, meteorology, biogeography and paleoclimatology, the newspaper said.

The actual truth about "global warming" is far less important than what people actually believe about it. If people can be led to believe that "global warming" is a danger to the entire earth and all its inhabitants, governments can pass sweeping legislation, installing huge new departments monitoring and regulating every private, business, and governmental action that even peripherally impacts on "global warming." International institutions in particular could benefit--in effect creating a massive international transfer of wealth from those who have it, to those who want it and can acquire the power to take it.

With so much at stake, it is important that people not be confused. They should be presented with only one side of the topic, so that their depleted cognitive apparati not be overloaded. I cannot stress this strongly enough.

A decades-long campaign to dumb down the schools is just now ready to bear fruit in a very large way. For the public's own good, those who control the gates to public information--assimilable information such as video and film media--must forcefully prevent conflicting points of view from being viewed.

Up until now, we have been able to control most of the substantial sources of information to the public dealing with important topics. Blogs and other minor media are unimportant, given the low credibility most people assign to the internet. Television and cinema, however, are taken very seriously by the dumbed down populace.

I trust you will all see to it that the public's right to protection from cognitive dissonance is protected. Anything less is irresponsible.

Hat tip Audacious Epigone.

Do you know if we will ever be able to see this film in the states? I doubt PBS will run it, but maybe FOX News or even ABC (John Stossel) will???

The internet should make it available long before cable or broadcast TV present it.

Thanks for the link, anticitizenone. When I checked Google blog search, it looked like half the blogosphere discovered the Google video version of the film at one time. That will teach me not to check my comments email.
