"An Inconvenient Truth"
morphs into "Convenient Lies" as Hollywood Oscars regurgitate 30-year old
Doomsday baloney from the 1970s
(Feb 26, 2007)
Hollywood, CA – And the winner for Best
Documentary Feature is: Prof Paul Ehrlich's fantasy documentary
Global Starvation Is Just Around the Corner
-- oops, that was over 30 years ago at UC Berkeley. Oh well, let's
recycle all the gloom and doom baloney that the major media and far
left university profs spoon-fed the parents of today's college kids in the
'70s and re-feed it to their children through Hollywood and left liberal
loser, Al Gore.
According to Prof Ehrlich's book
The Population Bomb, required
reading in my UC Berkeley Biology class, we were all supposed to have
starved to death by the year 2000. Sorry, it didn't happen. DDT
supposedly caused thin egg shells; so it was banned and millions died from
mosquitoes carrying malaria because nobody could spray what we now know did
not cause thin egg shells, DDT.
Tides were supposed to rise dramatically,
the ice caps were supposed to melt, the weather was supposed to produce a
"nuclear winter" in which no crops could grow. The active ingredient
in hair spray and automobile air conditioners, freon, was banned because it
supposedly was causing a "hole" in our ionosphere and letting in too much UV
sunlight, heating up the biosphere, and creating the "Greenhouse Effect."
But oops, the global temperature is actually
dropping, not increasing, suggesting that we may be at the start of one of
our normal Ice Ages on Earth. In fact, the early news releases from
the recent international meeting on Global Warming were
preliminary, and many scientists were angry
because their data (to be published later in the Meeting's Summary) refute
the preliminary news spin espoused by those who are eager to push their
"Convenient Lies" as "An Inconvenient Truth."
So, pardon me if I don't get all excited
about Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" movie because I've been there, seen
that, and discovered the Global Warming Hypothesis is not only just an
hypothesis, but according to lots and lots of documented scientific reports
in the bibliography and footnotes of Dr. Michael Crichton's latest book,
State of Fear, the Global Warming
Hypothesis contains lots and lots of outright lies and falsification of
Nobody argues whether burning fossil fuels
causes pollution. But that can easily be solved by free market
solutions such as moving to the new EFTV machines (Energy From The Vacuum,
the particle flux all around us) and enforcing existing pollution
The real objective of Al Gore and his
Doomsday Hollywood bozos is more and more government intervention into an
already over-regulated market, controlled by Congress, the Administration,
and all their special interest Big Energy buddies receiving corporate
welfare and prohibiting new energy competitors from entering the market.
Gore's Oscar-winning fairytale should be
re-titled "Convenient Lies" since it's the same old government
interventionist Pablum dredged up from the 1970s and long before that:
Orchestrate a gloom and doom scenario, keep everybody in a perpetual state
of fear (environmental, foreign wars, you name it), and then push for more
and more governmental controls to "save" us all from everything and
everybody, all the time and everywhere. -- FM Duck
