Even the UN’s climate change chief, Rajendra Pachauri ( a man with a vested interest if ever there was one !) has had to acknowledge that there has been NO rise in global temperature for the last 17 years….a period coinciding with an unprecedented expansion of CO2-emitting Power Stations in China and elsewhere.
The evidence in the film ”The Great Global Warming Swindle”, is that climate has ALWAYS been changing, ( for instance, it was much warmer in the Middle Ages than it is now), and that Climate Change is primarily due to processes in the Sun which impact – via the ‘solar wind’ – on cloud-formation, and NOT human activity.
CO2, man-made or otherwise, is NOT the driving force behind Climate Change now, and never has been in the past.
We can probably all agree that pollution is not a particularly good idea, but on the other hand it is alarmist nonsense to suggest that we are all going to drown under melting ice-caps or something if we continue to burn stuff.
The film also has important things to say on the origins of the ”theory” of anthropogenic climate change… (think : Reagan and Thatcher)…, and its potential (or rather its AGENDA) to do great harm to economic development in the poorest regions of our planet.

At one time left-wing and progressive politics embraced energy, technology, and modernity as the key to human liberation and prosperity. Through its adoption of a reactionary apocalyptic pastoralism, much of the ”Left” today has been side-tracked, its historic role of pragmatic action for people and their environment, effectively neutralised.
