Devastating critique of the global change industry
9 February 2012 | by (Silicon Valley) – See all my reviews

I've read that polar icecaps are unusual in the history of planet earth.

I've read that the polar sea wasn't frozen a few million years ago (a short period of time geologically speaking) and I've read that Antarctica had lush forests and fauna just a few million years ago, and that lost ecosystem is now buried under miles of ice.

And even more worrisome would be if a large volcano where to erupt and block the sun for a year or more. We would really want as much global warming as possible in that case.

Further I read that when the earth gets colder and has polar ice caps that the weather is much more volatile and extreme. And except for the past couple of hundred years the earth was drifting deeper into a polar ice period with temperatures getting colder and colder. This sounds awful. By sheer dumb luck, man is making the earth warmer. And perhaps better than ever.

I also wonder if scientists are given grants based on the "scariness" of their investigations. Perhaps scientists are more likely to get grant money if their predictions are dire.

I also read that farm land become more productive the warmer it becomes.

With these notions above in mind, I was a global change skeptic of sorts.

Then I watch this film and my skepticism has hardened considerably. I now I pity/fear/despair anyone that carries on about carbon footprints, global warming or polar bears. And to watch giant corporations engage in fear mongering about global warming is truly alarming.

If you like to talk about this subject, no matter what your position is on global warming, you need to understand the ideas in this film to avoid looking stupid.
