David Attenborough, nature and climate change documentary producer. Andrew Montford, writer for reaction.life: “Tragedy porn” is now a standard green propaganda technique. First of all you need a victim. Animals – preferably fluffy ones, and preferably with large eyes – are ideal, but people will do at a pinch. Then you have to film them in the process of dying or otherwise suffering. A presenter or scientist needs to be on hand to describe the events, preferably choking away their tears. Then you blame global warming.
John Eidson, electrical engineer: Despite what the people who try to frighten kids say, it doesn’t look like polar bears are being wiped out by anything. They’ve been around for a long, long time, including many periods when Earth was much warmer than it is today. These big white bears are resilient animals that have always known how to figure things out when there’s less ice.
John Eidson, electrical engineer: The people who try to scare kids about global warming say that picture shows that polar bears are starving due to melting Arctic ice that’s driving away seals, their primary food source. Maybe the bear was so old that it could no longer hunt. Maybe its mother died before she could teach it how to find other prey when the local seal population migrates. Or maybe the people who took that picture went to the Arctic on a mission to find a skinny polar bear to photograph no matter how long it took. Alternate possibilities for that bear’s condition are never mentioned by the people who lead kids to think that a picture of a skinny polar bear is proof that global warming is destroying the planet.
Stefan Aust, contributor to Kalte Sonne, editor of WeltN24: They are the representatives of the good in this world and the representation of the good. Her hymn, which resonates in every performance, is John Lennon's name, "Imagine": Imagine, he gives a world that belongs to all ... no greed, no hunger, ... you can call me a dreamer, but I am not that only one and I hope that you will one day also belong to it … Almost all of them now belong to it, even though Lennon at that time could not dream what hopes and fears would take over the direction of the apocalyptic horror stage in the next decades. From the threat of the end of the world through man-made climate change, the good John had no idea, otherwise he would probably have included the abolition of CO 2 in his song.
