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.
Jay Lehr, Ph.D. Science Director at The Heartland Institute: We are confident that all of our readers have read or heard for a number of years that 97% of all scientists believe that mankind has played a role in changing the earth’s climate. While it should have been recognized long ago as an urban myth, one of those stories that hang around regardless of a lack of any supporting facts. Rarely a day goes that a global warming alarmists do not use it to promote their cause of enlarging government and reducing personal freedom through the promotion of fear about our future.
Tim Ball, environmental consultant and former professor of climatology at the University of Winnipeg:The big lie that humans are causing climate change spreads as it is promoted by those with a political agenda and their use of a familiar technique to ensnare high profile people. This practice is a fallacious form of argument called Argumentum Ad Verecundiam defined as "…an appeal to the testimony of an authority outside the authority’s special field of expertise." The latest well-known person exploited in this way is documentary producer Sir David Attenborough, who was taken in by the false story of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). It appears he let his socialist views over-ride any sense of science he might have.
