    For those not taken in by claims of conspiracies etc, the following video/movie is obtainable on dvd, and is one of the most awe inspring docos I have seen.
    I did start a thread about it here..................

    Quit posting videos. They don't prove anything.

    One large item of evidence that the US still has some functioning democratic structure was Clinton's electoral loss.

    Another is the amount of effort being put into climate change denial and concealment - nobody spends hundreds of millions of dollars every year trying to manipulate the powerless.

    Does it have to be both? Maybe I am just a shill but they don't pay me. Or maybe they pay me millions to post on obscure forums to convince . . . someone of something, but I don't like shilling.

    Or maybe you're a kooky conspiracy theorist who sees government plants everywhere.

    I'll let people here decide which is the more likely.
    Oh, you have a You tube video! Well, those are incontrovertible.

    The issue provoked in the refusal to click on a link above is the terror and fright in having to read unwelcome facts and to be forced to give up a cherished delusion.

    No, just an ability to read.

    What do you have against hand guns? Everyone needs a double barreled 45 handgun.

    Anyway, it's not so much about the guns moreover about the money.
    You check, than prove you're not simply lying about owning stock.

    I'm getting amused by the climate alarmists that are posting off-topic trivialities. Are they attempting to silence their conscience by sidestepping their hypocrisy in a desperate hope of derailing this thread?

    It's fun to watch the deniers go to ever more hyperbolic insults hoping to get a rise out of the more science based people on the thread. "Gee, if I can just come up with the right insult, I will win!"

    It's clear that you misunderstand my use of the phrase "the climate alarmists." By it I simply mean the true believers as explained and generalized by Eric Hoffer.

    For example:

    “The quality of ideas seems to play a minor role in mass movement leadership. What counts is the arrogant gesture, the complete disregard of the opinion of others, the singlehanded defiance of the world.” ― Eric Hoffer, The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements.

    What I'm saying is that the issue here is hypocrisy and the denial of hypocrisy. It's like extremely zealous Christians being overly preoccupied in declaring their faith in God but at the same time refusing to obey the Golden Rule, which requires Christians to treat others as they themselves want to be treated.

    Likewise, it's clear that I'm not disputing or even questioning the faith of the climate alarmists. I'm only asking the true believers to respond to the assertions of their religion honestly.

    So, Eric Hoffer, was your agenda all along, not a cowspiracy?

    Only denialists think like that about climate change - as something you can have "true belief" in, or maybe not.

    There is no mass movement of such people, and no such "leadership" as Hoffer describes in the matter.

    The cowspiracy to the climate alarmists is probably something like the inquisition is to the followers of the Catholic religion. These obvious embarrassments are so troubling to the established faith that the faithful aren't inclined to investigate them.

    Indisputably, climate change denial isn't the subject of this thread. Clearly though, your false accusation and attempt at obfuscation is your preferred method of escape.

    I'm disputing that. It's a false claim.

    There is no other visible reason for inventing a category like Hofferian "True Believers in climate change", and disparaging its members/leadership/whatever.
