The Great Global Warming Swindle            

This movie, produced and broadcast in the UK, inspired a huge positive public response including thousands of emails  from scientists and others expressing their support. “The film, made by British television producer Martin Durkin, showcases scientists, economists, politicians, writers, and others who are sceptical about the scientific theory of anthropogenic global warming.

Ian's Note; 

This subject is complex and controversial and impossible to address comprehensively in one and half hours.  My goal is to give us an overview of both sides of this important subject.  Although most Americans consider this issue to be a low priority the Stimulus Bill includes almost $3 Billion for global warming and carbon-capture projects, in addition to the $800 Trillion tax called Cap & Trade.
