The documentary presents the ideas and studies ***** scient*****ts who take the unpopular position that global warming is a natural event, and ***** it is cons*****tent with the earth's ever changing weather conditions; and that the current global warming "scare" is to promote business profits in those sectors of business ***** stand to benefit financially from global warming as an "*****."

Have come together on film, loaded with scientific in*****mati***** *****, if it does not refute ***** responsibility for global warming, at least demonstrates that there is a lack of scientific evidence to ***** ***** contention.

***** it ***** highly controversial, and because these scientists have *****n the *****
