Well-Connected Skeptics Behind UK Attack on Global Warming Film

Snapshot from viral videoThe school governor who challenged the screening of Al Gore's climate change documentary in secondary schools was funded by a Scottish quarrying magnate who established a controversial lobbying group to attack environmentalists' claims about global warming," reports The Observer. Stewart Dimmock sought to ban "An Inconvenient Truth" from British schools, with help from Scotland's New Party. Nearly all of the small party's funds come from a quarry company owned by Robert Durward. Durward, along with a former advisor to Tony Blair, set up the group Scientific Alliance to "challenge many of the claims about global warming." In 2004, the group "co-authored a report with the George C Marshall Institute, a US body funded by Exxon Mobil, that attacked climate change claims." A UK High Court judge rejected Dimmock's request to ban the film, but did require schools showing the film to provide "Guidance Notes" to teachers, since the film touches on political issues. (The judge explained that his ruling "did not relate to an analysis of the scientific questions," though many news reports have confused the ruling, according to Tim Lambert.)

israel bombed syria over nukes.
you have got to be kidding. bullshitters of the world unite.
the us propaganda machine is at the genius level with the syrian
north korea connection. wow.
the reality is very different. the brilliant kim il jung has managed
to get the yanks to release his money in macau. they have successfully
got george bush by the short hairs and probably only spent a million
dollars to let off a fart into the atmosphere. the smell is wonderful. at this point in time i am sure that george hangs limp and uses viagra to please his lady love.

while the usofhay has spent hundreds of billions updating all its
nuclear hardware. suitcase nuclear weapons, bunker busters miniature
shoulder nuclear launchers and who knows what. wow.
george bush certainly knows htow to bring in the profits for the
megalopoly militaty industrial complexes which run us all. america is
so creative that the entire world has to use laxatives to cope with
it. congratulations israel you have created a massive storm in a
teacup which helps to keep the world on its toes.

after all the bombing of the osirak reactor in 1981 probably saved
planet earth and pollard whom the americans hate is still in jail. so
much for "real" politics america style.
israel always has to be in survival mode while america reaps all the profits.

Along with being skeptical, how but we all contribute to the skepticism of our financial system:

There are always many facets to a story, and this is one facet to our countries financial health.

Please help!
