From the production company’s description:
The Global Warming Swindle is the definitive rebuttal to Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’. The film examines the mass of observational data (from temperature balloons, weather satellites, ocean temperature data, ice core records and much else besides) which directly contradict the popular theory of man-made global warming.
It features testimony from many senior scientists describing both the fatal weaknesses in the theory of man made global warming, and their failed attempts to bring these to public attention. The warming of the past 300 years, it is argued, represents a natural recovery from a period which is known to climatologists as the ‘Little Ice Age’.
This warming has been mild, beneficial and cannot possibly have been caused by humans. Yes, humans have an effect on climate, but it’s an infinitesimally small pin-prick, compared with the vast natural forces which have always, and are still constantly pushing global temperatures this way and that.
This film turns the world upside down, and uses an extraordinary cast of the world’s top scientists to do it. It’s the morality tale of the decade – of politicians eager to pander to prejudice, throwing vast quantities of public cash into scientific research aimed at supporting an unsupportable theory. It’s a tale of scientists fearful of speaking out, of upsetting the funding applecart and jeopardising the many thousands of research jobs generated for them by the global warming scare.
The film is enlightening and disturbing. It describes how a fashionable prejudice was elevated to the status of unquestionable scientific fact. It shows how, in an age we consider rational, reason can descend into dogma. Global Warming is indeed the biggest threat facing the world today, but not in the way you think.
‘The Great Global Warming Swindle’ has won many awards and the praise of many senior scientists.
‘If you’re worried about the polar bears, watch this brilliant, devastating film.’ – Peter Hitchins, Mail on Sunday
‘Devastating’ – The Washington Times
‘The truth is out’ – Editorial, The Sunday Express
‘Only very rarely can a documentary be seen as a pivotal moment in a major political debate, but such is The Great Global Warming Swindle. Never before has there been such a devastatingly authoritative account of how the hysteria over global warming has parted company with reality.’ – Christopher Booker, Sunday Telegraph
