Thanks to our Harvard physicist pal Lubos for linking the entire movie of The Great Global Warming Swindle. So many fine folks who help with the labor on Maggie's Farm - it's a blessing.
I don't know what to watch first, 300 or the Swindle. OK, I am off duty for the evening.
As a counterpoint, how is this for shrill panic-mongering?
Update: OK, I watched the whole thing. Quite engaging. They have some real heavyweights in it. What is most striking is how much money is at stake in promoting the warming scare. And yes, it's all about Mr. Sun and his spots.
The movie does need to be seen, to balance the debate. Send it around. Riehl has some good comments and summary of the points. The big problem is that people are not properly educated in science or scientific thinking, so they are prone to believing anything. The only proper attitude towards research is skepticism. Interest, but skepticism. And never trust "truth" in the world of science, because "truth" does not exist in that world.
In science, facts and theories can be "falsifiable," but Truth is always elusive. This is why most scientists are humble.
