"The Great Global Warming Swindle"

on

Here’s a tart review of the above-named UK Channel 4 TV program that aired last night. The review, by Climate Outreach and Information Network executive director George Marshall, comes complete with background information and links on the usual suspects who will go to any lengths to deny the science of climate change. It sounds like the show was pretty much what we would have expected: lots of hyperbole, zero reliable science.

It’s also worth looking at the COINet website, and especially at the assessment of different online carbon calculators. You have to like an organization that would produce such an assessment and bump its own entry into second place.
