Stunning film exposes climate sceptics #MerchantsOfDoubt
Climate State - Published on Aug 30, 2016
Merchants of Doubt is a 2014 American documentary film directed by Robert Kenner and inspired by the 2010 book of the same name by Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway. The film traces the use of public relations tactics that were originally developed by the tobacco industry to protect their business from research indicating health risks from smoking. The most prominent of these tactics is the cultivation of scientists and others who successfully cast doubt on the scientific results.
Yes, and as Doug pointed out the future exacerbation of our global warming crisis into an even faster growing and more hideously disruption and degradation of our biosphere, that we’ll be able to lay at the Trump Puppet’s feet - though he’s only a figure head for other sinister forces.
There is nothing wrong with saying, “We don’t really know for sure”.
The fuk there isn’t, if you are lying about all that is known,...
If you are setting impossible expectations, ...
If that “for sure” becomes a justification for doing nothing in the face of overwhelming evidence both physical and theoretical, ...
Then yes that is wrong as hell.
You are all hype. It is more about Trump than science for you.
If there is overwhelming physical and theoretical evidence. Then what are you waiting for? Why don’t they just shut down the IPCC? After all, you have all the answers, all world has to do is ask you, and you will tell them.
It has been established that the problem is caused by over population. Something that you never talk about. Trump, yes, every chance your get. Solution to the problem, never.
Oh, oh, Mikie did I strike your funny bone. Careful now temper, temper, blood pressure and all that.
So, I’m all hype - Yeah that’s why I’m the only one who can support his position with real explanations and genuine scientific evidence.
If you took one look at Merchants of Doubt you’d realize how ludicrous it is bringing up Trump in context with it.
Trump is merely the postern child for what we can expected from that gold plated greed driven absolutism.
Trump knows more about science than me - here we have example of your obsessive prejudice blinding you.
I know I understand the science because I can point to specifics that support my positions,
oh but I’m not above being skeptical of my own position so am always willing to put it to the test and continue the learning process.
More than can be said for your tunnel visioned approach.
Also here’s an indication of how little you actually pay attention to what I’ve said - if your actually believe I’ve never pinned this (and other current ‘issues’)
on over-population is ridiculous.
Hot air is hot air. I stand ready for any fact based debate you want to initiate regarding climate science.
