Hooray, New Film Means Debate Is Over. Again

Can you guess what’s missing from this breathless HuffPo screed?

Sometimes people question whether or not Climate Change is real. After viewing the feature documentary, Chasing Ice, I can assure you that the debate is over. On Monday, January 23, 2012 –Chasing Ice, had its world premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival featuring documentary director Jeff Orlowski and his Academy Awarding winning production team led by Paula DuPré Pesmen, producer of the 2010 Academy Award®-winning The Cove, and writer Mark Monroe (The Cove, The Tillman Story).

Acclaimed National Geographic photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change but through his Extreme Ice Survey, he discovers undeniable evidence about our global warming planet. In Chasing Ice, Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. The film features hauntingly beautiful, multi-year time-lapse videos of vanishing glaciers, while delivering fragile hope to our carbon-powered planet.

I’m shocked? A few surveyed and filmed glaciers melted? That’s never happened before…huh? They have melted? NY City was covered by a mile high glacier not so long ago in Earth’s history? Dude!

What about the glaciers that grew? But, then, that’s not really the point: this in no way proves anthropogenic global warming. It simply proves that the climate changes, and that we’re currently in a warm cycle.

    So the climate is changing. Who cares? The world is getting warmer, who cares? It seems that we have adapted in the past, if we don’t we die. None of this means we need a global government, more taxes, more dispersal of wealth, or any other change in what we are doing other the reducing the population of the world. Lets start with fewer liberals. Then we can move to others that have difficulty in getting along with the rest of humanity, such as problems with burning books.

    Note all the “arguments from authority” present in the quote: the director and his team have won Academy Awards, and the photographer is “acclaimed.” Don’t you dare challenge them, for their knowledgeable peers have praised them, you ignorant peasant!

    Yeesh. Someone should send that writer copies of the accounts of the remains of medieval structures being left exposed by receding glaciers, indicating the ice has expanded and receded several times in recurring cycles, with nothing to do with the dread CO2.

    I guess now we know what sunk the Titanic. A global warmingburg. Glaciers didn’t break off pieces before we started using oil, ya know.

    Two thoughts on this article:

    1) No matter how hard the Environmentalist Wacko crowd tries to drum up for support for global warming silliness, they’re fighting an ever-increasing uphill battle. Because the economies worldwide are in shambles and people aren’t worried about this stuff when they are broke, unemployed, or on the battlefield.

    2) At the same time, because people are worried about being broke, unemployed, and on the battlefield, they aren’t watching as closely when the Watermelons (green on the outside, red on the inside) start convincing representatives to pass crazy legislation designed to ‘fight’ global warming. Read: remove our rights, tax us all even more, and give governments more control.

  5. See, if the experts on the Realist side aren’t accredited “climate scientists”, we aren’t supposed to listen to them. But, filmakers and actors who are Warmists? We’re supposed to listen to them after they take unnecessary fossil fueled flights to Cannes to discuss their AGW beliefs.

    I love asking Warmists about how all those islands they worry about being covered by the seas from globull warming actually came into being. They really do not like to get into that subject, and tend to change the debate.

    The sad part of this is that there are actual issues revolving around warming, particularly the urban heat island effect and deforestation, and methane release from landfills. Also, ocean pollution which kills plankton. Plankton removes huge amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere, stabilizing the natural system. Also, there are real environmental issues. All these get shuffled to the side or laughed at because of the idiocy of the Warmists.

    Agreed BF and Teach.

    “Extreme Ice Survey” .. sounds like a Japanese game show. EXTREME!!!!

    So, because this guy some one to a few glaciers’ extent recede over time tells him that MAN is causing the world to warm.

    I really despise statist. And, not just for those who adore and love the STATE. But also those that believe the world is STATIC.

    Anytime you hear the moronic “The debate is over” meme, you know you’re listening to someone who has no idea what the Scientific Method is all about.
