An alternative view - read between the lines
24 October 2007 | by (Aberdeen, Scotland) – See all my reviews

The obvious comparison with this documentary is An Inconvenient Truth (especially since some of this documentary is rooted in disproving the other). Both are excellent documentaries, both make strong arguments to support their side of the debate. Both have dubious motives and issues pertaining to their interpretation of the data. Anyone who takes one perspective as rote and dismisses the other out of hand (or by using the same "Look at the source/funding" arguments) have missed the point, especially of The Great Global Warming Swindle, and the debate that has opened up after it's airing. Which is this - much of the data the general public is presented with is skewed, edited and presented by someone according to their own beliefs, their funding, background, political aspirations, etc. Anyone who claims impartiality is wrong. I hope the effect of this documentary is to encourage people to look, read and research for themselves the information they are presented with every day and allow themselves the greatest chance of acting with understanding and knowledge rather than ignorance.
