The Great Global Warming Swindle: A Film Documentary

Introduction

The free film documentary The Great Global Warming Swindle (2007), found online at http://www.moviesfoundonline.com/documentaries.php#war_on_terror,presents a controversi*****l response to alleg*****ions that global warming is a result of mankind's pollution of the atmosphere by human generated greenhouse gases. ***** documentary presents the ideas and studies ***** scientists who take the unpopular position that ***** 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 that stand to benefit financially from global ***** as an "*****."

The ***** warming theor*****ts have responded ***** 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 ***** documentary, how it ***** debunked by supporters of the global warming theory, and what information presented in the documentary and in the response can be debunked; and what is left after ***** debunking. What science remains after applying science to both arguments?

The Controversy

The film documentary The Great Global Warming ***** (2007), by direc*****r Martin Durkin, features some ***** the world's - and certainly the United States' - most highly credible and respected ***** in a discussion on ***** warming. ***** scientists are taking ***** position that global warming is occurring, but ***** it is more scientifically seen ***** the natural forces of nature as opposed to the man-made ***** gasses or CO2 put into the ***** by mankind. Their argument about global warming as a natural occurrence ***** compelling, and convincing.

In response ***** the alleg*****ions that mankind and, especially, that ***** - regardless of who put it into the air; mankind, plants, the residual of ***** decaying plant and life processes. A group of scient*****ts, including highly ***** 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 ***** lead author International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Pr*****essor 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 with scientific in*****mation *****, if it does not refute ***** responsibil*****y for global warming, at least demonstrates that there is a lack of ***** evidence to ***** that contention.

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