The Great Global Warming Swindle: A Film Documentary


The free film documentary The ***** Global Warming Swindle (2007), found online at,presents a controversi*****l response to allegations that global warming is a result of mankind's pollution of the atmosphere by human generated greenhouse gases. The documentary presents the ideas and studies of scientists who take the unpopular position that global warming is a natural event, and that it is consistent with the earth's ever changing weather conditions; and that the current global ***** "scare" is to promote business profits in those sectors of business that stand to benefit financially from global warming as an "event."

***** global warming theor*****ts have responded to the documentary with *****ir counter argument; some are good, and others are weak. The proposal ***** this essay is to attempt to present both sides; what is *****ed in the film documentary, how it is debunked by supporters of the global warming theory, and what information presented in the documentary and in the ***** can be debunked; ***** ***** is left after the debunking. What science remains after applying science to both arguments?

In response ***** the ***** th***** mankind and, especially, that CO2 - regardless of who put it into the air; mankind, plants, ***** residual of the decaying plant and life processes. A group of scientists, including highly respected Professor Tim Ball, of the Univers*****y of Winnipeg; ***** Niv Shaviv, University ***** Jerusalem; Professor Ian Clark, University of Ottawa; Pr*****essor John Christy of the University of Alabama and lead author International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Professor Philip Stott, University of London; Professor Richard Lindzen, ***** Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and others ***** Harvard and other ***** respected universities around the world. Have come together on film, loaded ***** scientific information *****, if it does not refute ***** responsibil*****y for ***** warming, at least demonstrates that there is a lack of ***** evidence to support ***** contention.

Because it ***** highly controversial, and because these ***** have taken the *****
