While media members fawn over Hollywood productions about manmade global warming such as Al Gore's schlockumentary "An Inconvenient Truth" and Leonardo DiCaprio's box office disaster "The Eleventh Hour," they should take time out of their busy propagandist schedules to view a lecture that Australian research professor Bob Carter recently gave.
In fact, it should be required viewing for any member of the press who wants to report about climate change, for it more thoroughly and concisely explains the science refuting the current alarmism than anything to date.
During the roughly 37-minute lecture given at the Annual Conference of the Australian Environmental Foundation on September 8th in Melbourne (luckily caught on videotape, multiple links to follow), Carter debunked the hysterical claims regularly espoused by warm-mongers such as:
- Today's temperatures deviate from historical norms
- Today's temperatures will cause extinctions
- Today's temperatures are caused by rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.
In fact, and not to give too much away, one of Carter's rather startling observations is that a greater threat to mankind moving forward is the cooling trend that has likely already started, and that all this hysteria over a nominal warming period is distracting us from preparing for the colder temperatures destined to come.
As an added bonus, although the contents are highly scientific and, at times complicated, viewers will appreciate Carter's candid, personable delivery, as well as his sense of humor.
As such, without further ado, I strongly recommend NewsBusters readers take about a half-hour of their time to fully understand just how absurd the media's claims of imminent doom at the hands of global warming are.
