Science, Innovation, Politics
Stellar new addition to the list of beautiful, extremely well-produced, incredibly insulting AGW media...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXvpDoGrRGUhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxis7Y1ikIQ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXdUW3-7Qyk
Good God! This reminiscent of the LBJ A Bomb ad used against Goldwater in '64.
What to say about this short film.To be polite, this short film convince even more in my position of skeptic/denier/ or moron (for Joe Romm).If the science was solid, why wouldn't it suffice to convince people. If you are unable to scare people with proper science than you need to use fabrication. Sadly some people really get scared by such ad. A little bit like Bush was able to stay in power with the terrorism scarecrow. Well, at least with terrorism, a catastrophe did happen that was unprecedented.
The message: Global warmign can cause the earth to split in two. Was this made by the same company that made the video with polar bears raining down from the sky?
IN my opinion, those that see the world this way, and attempt to sell it as "truth" are sadly imprisoned by the demons of their own minds. Banshee fear mongering masquerading as science is not convincing.
What a load of apocolyptical horse &%!#. Not old enough to have seen the LBJ ad, but certainly old enough to remember watching the nightly news reports of famine in Africa and Tutu speaking to the evils of Apartheid (was much more sympathetic back then), which brings me to my point that all of their apocolyptical signs - drought, floods, famine, and singling out the capacity to deal with it in Africa are hindered by things far different than climate change and sustainable energy. Corruption, war, poverty, and lack of investment in capacity - human and infrastructure - have had far more significant impacts on Africans than climate change may have.But don't worry, chances are most of the hot air in Copenhagen will be offset by something that supposedly will make the lives of Africans better (or will it???) Should we be moving to "cleaner" sources of energy? Yes. But it should be done in a manner that focuses on sectors and on the capacity of each country to incrementally move their energy sources in this direction.
Repulsive, manipulative, corporate drivel. No surprise.
Roger:Did you reject my earlier comment that likened this piece of well made propaganda to Leni Riefenstahl's "Olympia"?
Well, I suppose it made them feel powerful and important.Now, about saving the world...if we could just put all of the Copenhagen attendees in a spaceship......
Both sides are at it, of course:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmPSUMBrJoI
This is opening communication of the movement who claim they are motivated and supported by evidence and facts.God help us
@RichardI must have missed the UN sponsored, taxpayer funded global policymaking junket that screened the little video to which you link.
The film may fall short of outright child abuse by the film-makers, but it comes close. It is a nasty piece of exploitative trash.
Global Warming is alarming. Video was quite motivating. I shall from now for saving the world.
