  • The Power of Big Oil (Part One: Denial)

    https://www.pbs.org/video/the-power-...denial-redxh6/

    FRONTLINE examines the fossil fuel industry’s history of casting doubt and delaying action on climate change. Part One of this three-part series charts the fossil fuel industry's early research on climate change and investigates industry efforts to sow seeds of doubt about the science.

    Sorry but the climate change establishment needs to answer why it's been well documented for years that their reports are not faithful to historical climate data and why email dumps have shown a pattern of sloppiness, dishonesty and bad methodology.

    They need to qualify themselves and be transparent before pointing fingers.

      The figureheads for this movement fly around in private jets and do many other things which are hypocritical. Obvious they don’t practice what they preach.

        Your take is obsolete. “Goddard”/Heller is a full of shit as always.

            Let’s talk the science. Show me how it’s wrong, and why Big Oil’s attacks on it were wrong.

              It's very lucrative. These guys are getting departments created, chairs created, funding, grants, speaking gigs, tenure, book sales.

                I've never read anything from "Big Oil."

                You've obviously never looked into these disputes about the use and abuse of historical climatological data.

                  Tell you what.

                  Go to his website, pick a single page, and show us where his criticisms of any agency of your choosing are wrong, per the climatological record.

                      Healthcare & climate change are ways to control. Situations where freedoms no longer apply.

                        Any fool can simply stand anywhere on the planet and quickly realize that climate change is a fact.

                          The natural world is degrading at a very rapid pace. A lot of major ecosystems are being depleted. Humans obviously have an impact on the environment in which they live. Stating it doesn't happen is just another convenient lie and the sort of low-brow bullshit I'd expect nyuk and co. to peddle.

                              How much do you think a top-of-the-field climate scientist makes compared to a Big Oil CEO?

                                I’ve looked into them. They’re full of shit.

                                      Seriously?

                                      You looked up Katharine Hayhoe yet? Why not?

                                        God is in eternity observing the time construct. Nothing is a surprise to Him.

                                          Not what I asked.

                                          Is not the Earth your god’s second greatest gift to us? Treating it like shit ought to be sinful, don’t you think?

                                              Made up bullshit. It's got nothing to do with actual life. You care more about your fantasy afterlife than you do about life itself.

                                                Now you’re making an empirical claim re: the nature of time.

                                                Empirical claims require empirical evidence.
