The Great Global Warming Swindle is a controversial documentary film by British television producer Martin Durkin, which claims that the consensus on climate change is the product of “a multibillion-dollar worldwide industry: created by fanatically anti-industrial environmentalists; supported by scientists peddling scare stories to chase funding; and propped up by complicit politicians and the media.“
The film also states that Global Warming becomes the convenient tool for the anti-capitalism/ socialists to mobilize the masses to join the anti-globalisation movement and it also prevents developing country from developing. How I see it is the Democrats are definitely using Global Warming as a political weapon to bring the Republicans down.
The film stirs up lots of discussion in the scientists circles including RealClimate, Durando Bill and British Antarctic Society. Carl Wunsch, one of the scientists being interviewed, later called the film “grossly distorted” and “as close to pure propaganda as anything since World War Two.” George Monbiot from UK Guardian calls it a “crank.” On April 24, 38 scientists send an open letter to Durkin.
