Climate Change? 4

I have been watching a very interesting You Tube video on 'Plato Says' Blog.

It is called 'The Great Global Warming Swindle'.

If you have any sort of doubts about global warming and climate change check out Plato Says Blog

This debate is fascinating and clearly is going to run and run. To be fair, however, it's important to realise that Fox News is not the first stop for objective information. Fox News (a Murdoch corporation) has a long and undistinguished history of ultra-right wing topic selection and invitations to just about the worst spokespeople they can find to answer the challenges, thus making rebuttal of their usually agenda-heavy stories seem weak and ineffectual.

There's a powerful lobby in the US that wants to discredit climate change science, since it means they will make less easy money from their industries and the most glaring example of the US behaviour can be seen at the moment in regard to the Health Care initiative proposed by Obama. The various interest groups have recently spent over $400 000 0000 on hiring lobbyists to ensure they don't lose out. To some, that might seem obscene.

But the real issue is whether climate change is happening, and just about all the scientific community is agreed that it is. It's the causes of the change that are far from clear, and that's where the money needs to be spent.

The Blog wasn't about the Fox news reports. It was about the documentary about what is causing the warming of the earth.

I do believe we should help with the environment, eg stop cutting down the rain forests.

What i am sceptical about is the way the governments of the world are spending millions and billions of our money on something that might not be real cause.

I just want to know the truth, is it man made or is it just a naturally occuring change in the earth?
