Global Warming Doomsday Called Off

This is the full unsegmented version of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation production taking a critical look at the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW) alarmist bandwagon and religious revival crusade.

The above video provides an interesting counterpoint to Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth."

Personally, I have no objection to the showing of Al Gore's video to schoolchildren of age 10 and above, as long as equal minutes from videos such as the two I present here, are also shown to the developing young minds. Not that I expect government school teachers to expose their pre-teen and early teen minds to contradictory ideas. Private school teachers may care enough about the development of young minds to do so, but for parents of government school students--it's up to you. You have to make sure your kids are provided with the "grist" for mind development. If you don't, you're where the buck stops when the consequences start to roll in.

An interview with Martin Durkin, producer of "The Great Global Warming Swindle"--another great antidote to Al Gore's sloppy bombast--is below. Availability of Durkin's film online is a bit spotty, although it is available in segments online and on CD.

Intelligent minds need to be taught how to resolve contradiction. Modern universities go to great lengths to avoid exposing late teen and early adult aged minds to a diversity of ideas. Such an approach guarantees a society where educated adults are unable to intelligently debate multiple approaches to controversial ideas. That is called academic lobotomy.

I assert that ten year olds are capable of learning how to resolve contradictory ideas, and should be taught how to do so without delay. Until most of the active players in society are capable of intelligently resolving contradictions that are rampant in cultural and civilisational "warfare", we will continue to be stuck in the current round of societal "dumbing down."

Of course, I have other ideas on how to do an "end-around" to bypass the stupid societal obstacles to the next level. But we must be discreet about such discussions, nicht wahr?

Hat tip Reference Frame

As an added bonus (and another alternative view for schoolchildren), check out Glenn Beck's HeadlinePrime production of "Exposed: The Climate of Fear."

Thank you for posting this... We just don't get to see this kind of program on our network news. Only John Stossel gets a forum to question the consensus makers. A local news segment called "Reality Check" likened those who question the consensus on global warming to "flat earthers". Thats what we get treated to in America.

No problem, Craig.

It's rare to find people in the media who are willing to interview scientists with contrary views. I suppose it is far too important to maintain the illusion of "consensus."

TGGWS was shown on channel 4 not the BBC.
