The Great Global Warming Swindle

After numerous heated debates about Global Warming and the Dispatches TV programme, The Global Warming Swindle, I suggest that you go and look at it in its entirety on the Australian version of YouTube. This programme is very provocative, especially if you believe that the end of the world is imminent.

The green movement's supporters and opponents have created what can only be described as 'Fundamentalists' on both sides - Seth Godin characterised fundamentalists by two specific traits:

- they live according to a large body of superstitions

- they are right and everyone else is wrong.

"Fundamentalists decide whether they can accept a new piece of information based on how it will affect their prior belief system, not based on whether it is actually true."

Bear this in mind as you watch!
