Scientists Suggest that Swindle Fudged Data

on

Two more scientists have stepped forward to criticize the U.K. TV documentary, the Great Global Warming Swindle , for misleading viewers with unsubstantiated conclusions about climate change.

Dr. Eigil Friis-Christensen, Director of the Danish National Space Center, and Nathan Rive, a Research Fellow and the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research (CICERO) in Oslo, Norway, say the only way the program could have produced at least one of its graphs (inset) was by making up the data.

Although scientists have denounced the content of the climate change denial documentary, and several of the “experts” who participated in the production (e., Tim Ball , Fred Singer) work as lobbyists for the energy industry, there is still a movement to have the Swindle shown in schools alongside the award-winning Inconvenient Truth. There are even those who suggest that asking that the Swindle be corrected or removed to a dusty shelf are guilty of censorship (Hi Amy).

Let’s hope this latest round of criticism finally convinces school officials that this docu-commentary is actually an agenda-driven piece of propaganda that has no place being presented as a reasonable counterpoint to the proven science in an Inconvenient Truth.
