Swindle Update: ABC is now slamming the Swindle

The Swindle is a one-sided anti-global warming argument put together by a film maker with a name for skewing the facts, and featuring greenhouse skeptics with media profiles that far exceed their scientific publishing records.”

- ABC Online Science writer, Bernie Hobbs

A new little button titled “The Great Global Warming Swindle SWINDLE” has just been added on ABC Australia's dedicated “Great Global Warming Swindle” webpage.

Insider says all not well at ABC over Swindle decision

Australian newspaper, The Age, is reporting the inside scoop on the internal battles at ABC Australia over its decision to air shock-u-mentarian Martin Durkin's “Great Global Warming Swindle.” 

According to one website, the head of Factual Entertainment for ABC flew to London to personally apologize to Durkin for the “rough treatment” he received from ABC Lateline host Tony Jones who was in London last week doing a pre-taped interview to be aired after the Swindle.

Heating up the Northeast

A new report released by 50 top university and government researchers including one of the leading authors of the IPCC's report on impact and mitigation of global warming, has warned that the Northeastern United States could face severe weather changes if initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are not acted on.

Lengthy spells of over 100 degree heat, frequent and intense flooding, the disappearance of most ski resorts in the area as well as spruce and hemlock trees are some of the devastating effects that the forecasted temperature increase would produce.

Global-warming deniers shift gears in their distraction conspiracy

A column in a Seattle newspaper says growing consensus on human causes of climate change has forced deniers to switch tactics, abandoning shrill demands for scientific evidence – which is ample – for “drive-by shootings” such as exaggerated estimates of energy consumption in Al Gore’s house in Tennessee, or Prince Charles flying across the Atlantic to receive an environmental award.
