The Best Global Warming Videos on the Internet
Some people have asked me for copies of, or links to videos that provide an alternative view to Gores consensus on anthropogenic (i.e., man caused) global warming (AGW). A few of these videos have been broadcast in the United States (e.g., Glenn Beck, John Stossel), but most have not and probably will not be seen. Fortunately, we have the Internet to make these available.

Climate Catastrophe Cancelled
This is a revision to the Canadian Friends of Science video that accounts for the latest information on Solar Cycle 24 and how sun spots create solar wind, which deflects supernova generated cosmic rays, which cause low level cloud formation, which reflect sun and generates cooling. A lot of sun spots means a lot of solar wind and warming. Within limits, the amplitude of a solar cycle (i.e., the number of sun spots) is based on the length of the previous solar cycle or two. Solar Cycle 24, our next, is forecast to be a weak cycle.
The video also features Steve McIntyre and Ross McKitrick, who took apart Manns hockey stick. The absence of Arctic ice was addressed. In 1906, the ice cleared and a Norwegian made the Northwest Passage. The benefits of CO2 on plant growth is noted. The latest research by Ernst Beck shows that CO2 over the last 200 years has twice risen above levels currently present in the atmosphere and is quietly stirring up discussion in the physics community.

Global Warming: The Debate Continues (39:53)
This is the complete documentary video of the Fox special. John Christy and Roy Spencer, who collect the satellite temperature, downplayed the concerns about global warming noting that much more than CO2 affects climate, and that the cause and effect isnt present.
Patrick Michaels notes that Thomas Jefferson wrote that he was concerned about climate change (i.e., the world was emerging from the Little Ice Age during the time of Jefferson).
The video features one of the climate modelers, who is countered by others. The climate modeler is very proud of his supercomputer.
About half way, the documentary shifts to a focus on the technologies that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This is part of the story not usually seen in this debate. Its a positive view of technology that can reduce emissions.
Kyoto is dismissed as a job killer and joke that the Europeans are not even complying with. Russia is not pressured under Kyoto because they provide much of Europes oil. Even so, the Russians signed on because of the carbon credits they can sell based on doing nothing with Siberia. Other European leaders are on record stating that Kyoto and the environmental debate is about leveling the industrial economic playing field (i.e., making Europe more competitive) and about global governance.
The fear about hurricanes? According to the National Hurricane Centers Chris Landsea, global warming will only increase hurricane activity 5%... in 100 years. Hurricanes tend to go in cycles of activity lasting 25 to 40 years. The last quiet period was from 1970 to 1994. A lot of coastal development will be at risk as cyclical hurricane activity increases. When hurricanes that are no stronger than they were 50 years ago hit the coast, the damage is worse because the infrastructure is greater.
The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming
Chris Horner, author of the book of the same name, gives a lecture about his book before the Eagle Forum on C-SPAN2. Horner is a good speaker and his book is excellent, but this presentation is better listened to than watched. Listen through earbuds while doing something else on your machine or download this and convert it to an MP3 file for your portable media player.
Horner takes apart the 20 foot rise in temperature, saying it came from James Hansen during an August Senate testimony. According to Horner, Tim Wurth admitted on PBS Frontline that the August day was picked on purpose so that Hansen would be wiping sweat off his brow during the testimony.
Horner does do a good job talking about how surface temperatures jumped after the collapse of the Soviet Union, when thousands of Siberian weather stations were shut down.
He deals with the notion of glaciers calving. Glaciers are not melting. They calve when theres a build up of ice on the interior.
Next he mentions how the other planets in the Solar System are warming. What do they have in common with Earth?
Unfortunately, Horner expects Bush to sign or do something stupid before he leaves office so that he can protect his immediate legacy. Presumably (and unfortunately), this means something worse than banning the incandescent light bulb.

The Problems With Cap & Trade (9:20)
Kenneth Green points out the pitfalls of a carbon cap and trade system. Its all false economics and prone to cheating.
400 Dispute Global Warming (6:44)
Chris Horner squares off against David Roberts from Grist Magazine. Roberts calls anyone gullible who thinks the debate is not over. Horner takes him apart. A rather ridiculous statement came when Alan Colmes says Inhofe cherry picked 400 scientists.
Tim Ball on Hannity and Colmes (6:54)
Tim Ball presents the other side to the global warming hysteria. Alan Colmes ask Ball if hes a denier. Colmes really looks bad.
Cars Are Tobacco (2:46)
In general, I loathe Zaproot. Watching one all the way through is not recommended after a full meal. The only reason this one is on the list is the first 30 seconds.
Yes, were parasites. This is how many greenies see people.
Eiffel Tower Goes Dark (1:01)
Of course, its only cinq minutes, but thats not an empty gesture. Its a meaningful statement.
Easterbrook on Hannity & Colmes (5:57)
Don Easterbrook of Western Washington University appears on Hannity & Colmes. He notes that there are several hundred thousand scientists in the climate field. The IPCC Summary for Policy Makers report was written by 33 policy makers. The entire report was written by 143 people, not 2500 scientists.
Weather Channel Founder: Sue Al Gore to Expose Global Warming Fraud (1:32)
This is from the recently conducted Heartland Conference. Will he sue? Were all hoping.
Gores Hypocrisy (4:20)
Gore buys carbon credits from himself, among other things.
Death Threats To Skeptics (3:42)
If you continue to speak out, you wont live to see global warming. These are the tactics of people who cannot debate the facts.
Two Days Before The Day After Tomorrow (22:35)
Another South Park episode poking fun at the media over reporting, the need to blame someone for anything that happens, and global warming hysteria. Of course, as South Park, its offensive.
A Practical Solution (0:30)
Its tongue in cheek, but makes more sense than Al Gore.
Okay, this isnt all that funny, but I still laughed. But then, Im easily amused.
Ice cubes take less time to melt! Save us!
Making global warming a top priority is fashionable. Dont you want to be fashionable?
Leonardo DiCaprio was breastfeed by the Ugandan Mountain Gorilla. Who knew?
Global Warming Heroism (3:15)
An amusing highlight of global warming hypocrisy and buzzwords.
GLOBAL WARMING : The Menopause Song by CHICK (2:49)
A unique theory about global warming. Heck, its as plausible as Gores.
Kennedy Wont Pass Wind (0:30)
This is too easy. It exposes the hypocrisy of the Ted Kennedy and the clan on climate change. Plus, its just fun to watch Greenpeace attack a Kennedy.
Bump for later reference.
How did both of those get through when they were posted nearly an hour apart?
What is your take on it slickster? :)
Don’t know if you have this from an earlier thread, but this is the grand-daddy of them all:
Whoops - you did. Never mind.
Thanks. I agree. Swindle is in Part 1. The greenie attack on Swindle is dealt with in Part 3 (they’ve got nothing).
Thanks very much, Entrepreneur.
BTW - very nice compilation. Very well done. Thanks for the effort.
Video (0:51 in length) from a PBS Frontline program in 2007. Partial transcript here.
The smirk on this Wirthless jackass as he describes this caper is priceless.

"Global Warming - the padding of an agenda"
"...we asked him if he (James Hansen) would testify."
"uuuuh , we called the Weather Bureau and found out what historically was the hottest day of the summer. Well, it was June 6 or June 9 or whatever it was, so we scheduled the hearing that day, and bingo: It was the hottest day on record in Washington, or close to it. "
"... What we did it was went in the night before and opened all the windows, I will admit, right? So that the air conditioning wasn't working inside the room and so when the, when the hearing occurred there was not only bliss, which is television cameras in double figures, but it was really hot. ..."
