The “Liberal Media” bashing Newsbusters is complaining today that the American media have ignored the 2005 Climate Catastrophe Cancelled video produced by the “Friends of Science.”
Newsbusters asks: “Think you’ll see this video on American television any time soon?”If it is to appear on American TV, which based on the quality of production and factual inaccuracies I am guessing not, here's a bit more on the Friends of Science and Newsbusters for you to consider.
A friend of DSBlog just sent this press release over:
ExxonMobil Agrees to Disclose Soft Money Political Contributions
SAN FRANCISCO, April 11 (AScribe Newswire) – ExxonMobil Corp. will disclose for the first time political contributions it makes with corporate funds, known colloquially as soft money, according to As You Sow, a nonprofit group promoting corporate social responsibility.
The Vancouver Province newspaper is responding to a suggestion that British Columbia school children should enjoy the Inconvenient Truth by urging educators to also expose B.C.’s young people to a good climate Swindle .
The editorial in the Vancouver Province newspaper today starts out innocently enough with an account of a local businessman, Will Cole-Hamilton, who would like to put a copy of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth in every high school in the province of British Columbia.
“And why not?” the editorial states, “the issue of global warming looks set to dominate public discourse for some time to come.”
The editorial then takes a turn into the land of global warming fantasy, suggesting that in the name of “presenting an unbiased” view, B.C. students should also watch Channel 4 documentary The Great Global Warming Swindle.
It's clear that the United States, China, Russia and Saudi Arabia flexed their collective United Nations muscle in negotiating the final version of the IPCC's summary for policymakers released in Brussels on Friday. But don't let the global warming deniers tell you that the report was somehow played up by the “alarmist” UN and “their socialist group of scientists bent on new world order.”
The exact opposite occurred.
The NRSP is a coalition whose leadership includes about half of the last handful of climate scientists of note who reject global warming as a “myth.”
Ironically, they realize their position is so out of the mainstream, they have to use a name that not only belies their true purpose but in fact implies they are environmentalists.
Just when you thought the global warming denial lobby couldn't get any stranger and desperate, well… they go and get stranger and more desperate. Christopher Monckton, who is the Viscount of Brenchley, but is better known as a puzzlemaker, has teamed up with the oil-industry darling Heartland Institute in challenging former Vice President Al Gore to a global warming debate.
