Or perhaps I should say:
The Great Disappearing BBC Documentary….
Now you see it, now you don’t.
The BBC produced a masterpiece of Global Warming “denial”, titled “The Great Global Warming Swindle”. I’ve posted about it, calling it “Must See BBC”.
People keep putting it up on Google Video, and Yahoo video, and Google and Yahoo keep taking it down.
I’m tired of updating the link to the latest posting, so here is my last update:
If this link tells you “We’re sorry, but this video may not be available.”, just type this in the empty box at the top:
The Great Global Warming Swindle
You have to do this from the Google Video website my link takes you to. If you just Google the title from the generic Google site, ironically all y0u get are links to sites dedicated to denouncing the video. Some of which say “don’t watch this, it’s all lies”, etc. I recommend that you watch it and make up your own mind.
Some people don’t want you to be able to do that. If you check out the news stories, you’ll find that some of the scientists featured have been receiving literal death threats. One said: “If you don’t stop speaking out, you won’t live to see any further warming”.
As a result, one of the scientists in the video is now saying “I was taken out of context, making it seem I was saying the opposite of what I meant”. I went over his comments several times, and I can’t see how he could possibly have been misquoted. My guess is either literal death threats, or at least threats to his professional status and future funding possibilites, have lead to his recantation. The Catholic Inquistion made Gallileo recant, a tactic the Environmentalist Inquistion has decided to emulate.
If the video isn’t up at the moment, try again a few hours or a day later. If you do find it on Google video, there is a “download” button on the right.
Download it to your hard drive right away, before it disappears again.
By the way, the full version is 1 hr 15 min 58 sec, usually labeled from “Wag TV”. There have been versions out with the first two minutes, the most powerful part of the whole program, deleted. If you have a choice, pick the long version.
