Not Evil Just Wrong, a documentary on the "true cost of global warming hysteria," will be screened tonight, January 21, 2010, at Oral Roberts University at 7 pm in Room 236 of the Learning Resource Center. The screening is free and open to the public, sponsored by Americans for Prosperity.

From the film's website:

Global warming alarmists want Americans to believe that humans are killing the planet. But Not Evil Just Wrong, a new documentary by Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, proves that the only threats to America (and the rest of the world) are the flawed science and sky-is-falling rhetoric of Al Gore and his allies in environmental extremism.

The film drives home the realities of that extremism. "Turn off your lights. Turn off your heat when you get cold. Turn off your air when you get hot," one man on the street says. "And then think about that."

Not Evil Just Wrong warns Americans that their jobs, modest lifestyles and dreams for their children are at stake. Industries that rely on fossil fuels will be crippled if the government imposes job-killing regulations on an economy already mired in recession. Small towns in the heartland, like Vevay, Ind., will become bastions of unemployment and poverty. Breadwinners like Tim McElhany in Vevay will lose their jobs -- and will have to start borrowing money again just to buy bread for their families.

The damage that would be wrought is unjustified by the science. Not Evil Just Wrong exposes the deceptions that experts, politicians, educators and the media have been force-feeding the public for years. Man-made pollution is not melting the polar icecaps. The ocean will not rise 20 feet in a flash. And the only polar bears dying because of man are the ones who try to eat men.

McAleer and McElhinney debunk what for a time was the environmental movement's most powerful weapon of disinformation, the infamous "hockey stick" graph that attributed a supposedly unique burst of warming in the 20th century to humans. They also shatter the myth that the hottest years in the United States were 1998 and 2006. The hottest year was 1934, and the hottest decade was the 1930s -- when there were half as many people and no SUVs or jumbo jets.

"Breadwinners like Tim McElhany... will have to start borrowing money again just to buy bread for their families." Glad there's no alarmist rhetoric in the documentary.

Even if the global warming crowd is overstating the threat, there's a positive side to the movement. Anything to help reduce our dependence on foreign energy is in this nation's long term interests.

Something I just learned last week, but should have deduced from what I've known for years. Glaciers are retreating. But, unlike polar ice or atmospheric CO2, glaciers have been a matter of knowledge *and record* for a centuries. Think, eg, Alpine villages. Turns out that glaciers had grown for decades prior to about 160 yrs ago, held same length for a decade, and have been retreating for last 150 yrs or so. With rates of retreat faster in some decades over that span than in last decade. So much for Anthropogenic Global Warming. It's an intentional hoax.

Should have guessed this from knowing about medieval warming span, which allowed Vikings to colonize Greenland (and was warmer than today), followed by so-called little ice age, which forced them out.

As a side note: I wonder if Joe above would agree to nuclear power? Or is that an anything not to be considered?

Joe, the Gov't isnt trying to reduce our dependancy on foreign oil, if they were, they would be allowing us to do our own drilling.
