Ofcom Global Warming Swindle Website

A new website has been launched containing all the nitty gritty details of the complaint to Ofcom, the UK's communications regulatory board, over Channel 4's documentary “The Great Global Warming Swindle.”

The website OfcomSwindleComplaint.net was set up by Dave Rado, one of the three concerned citizens who launched the original complaint to Ofcom over a year ago. The website “… comprehensively examines almost every line of script and every graphic in the [Great Global Warming Swindle] film to demonstrate the factual errors and apparently wilful deceptions that litter it.

Thanks for this. I though it might also be worth linking to our Q&A page, http://www.ofcomswindlecomplaint.net/About/QAndA.htm”, which covers many of the misleading claims that have been made in some sections of the media and blogoshpere regarding the ruling. Dave

Martin Durkin a liar and frauster - certainly in terms of broadcasting has created a veritable ‘tour de farce’ in The Great Global Warming Swindle.

I thought that TGGWS was a litany of lies, half truths, misrepresentations, cherry picked data, & etc., but having visited the http://www.ofcomswindlecomplaint.net/ I now realise that it was far more extensive and detailed than I then realised.

I would have never believed it possible to include so many deceits in such a programme, one must give credit where credit is due to Durkin for his extreme mendacity.
