Scientist Exposes Mendacious Anti-Global Warming Propaganda in 1990! 

Published on Apr 5, 2017

Climate scientist Stephen Schneider talks climate change.

Dr. Stephen Schneider is one of the most notable and outspoken scientists on the topic of climate change. His moderate and scientific approach to explaining climate change has helped congressmen, journalists, and citizens understand the complex, and often contradictory, issues related to global warming. In this ever timely talk, Dr. Schneider goes over the many different portrayals of climate change in the media and explains how to distinguish hype from science.

He argues that in order to have a functional democracy, voters must understand the basics of these important issues so that they can make informed decisions. This talk is part of the Walter Orr Roberts Public Lecture Series presented by the Aspen Global Change Institute. Recorded in Aspen, CO on July 30, 1990.

Agelbert NOTE: The fossil fuel industry funded LIE claiming that global warming is not "proven" to be occurring (i.e. DOUBT is their product) involves a propaganda playbook developed in the 1980s. That's right, there is NOTHING new about their crooked pitch. 

In the above video (1990 lecture), Climate Scientist Stephen Schneider exposes this mendacious methodology. For example, an article claims that US temperature records from 1895 to 1988 show "no warming trend". The problem is that the article left out the word "GLOBAL" in that headline. SO, the headline FOOLED people into ASS-U-ME-ing that "there ain't no GLOBAL warming trend" (even though deep in the article, TOWARDS THE END, the reporter did say that 1988 was the HOTTEST year in the average GLOBAL temperature since 1895.) You see, the US covers only 2% of the global surface (that ain't mentioned in the article, of course ).

Forbes and other "objective"     news outlets then do follow ups (in blitz style) by hurling ridicule at anyone who could entertain the very idea that Global Warming could be occurring  (i.e. "Panic" and a "textbook overreaction"). 

My, my, aren't these propagandist liars and crooks clever...

Watch the whole video and you will see that the exact same pattern of duplicity and disingenuous doubletalk has corrosively continued helping profit the polluters and destroy our democracy and biosphere to this day. 

Since these were the early days in this anti-climate science fossil fuel industry crusade, the scientist is being polite as to who is behind all this BULLSHIT. But even then, all you had to do was follow the fossil fuel money.     

The Fossil Fuelers   DID THE Climate Trashing, human health depleting CRIME,   but since they have ALWAYS BEEN liars and conscience free crooks, they are trying to AVOID   DOING THE TIME or     PAYING THE FINE!     Don't let them get away with it! Pass it on!   
Leges         Sine    Moribus     Vanae   
if it has not works, is dead, being alone.
