James Cameron demands people of his "stature" for climate debate
Written by Not Evil Team

CameronBack in March James Cameron said, “I want to call those deniers out into the street at high noon and shoot it out with those boneheads."

This put into motion the debate-that-was-not, starting with Cameron calling Ann McElhinney, Marc Morano, and Andrew Breitbart requesting a debate at the AREDAY summit.

But as soon as they accepted, Cameron started backtracking.  His list of demands for the debate can only be described as diva behavior, changing by the hour and becoming more restrictive every time. Ban cameras, ban audio, ban the media, ban the public.

We met every unreasonable demand.  Yet, when it finally came time to sit down and discuss Global Warming the outspoken environmentalist turned tail and ran, canceling while one of the debaters, Marc Morano, was in flight.  "The whole house of cards is falling!  Well done, Jimmy!  I'm beginning to doubt the existence of the Titanic," mocked Dennis Miller.

Canceling the debate didn't stop Cameron from trash-talking skeptics at AREDAY.  "James Cameron quickly went for the oft-traversed intellectual low road of ad hominem attacks, recently attacking skeptics of global warming as those of piggish DNA," said Tim Daniel of The Daily Caller.

Jim Treacher, also from the Daily Caller, made sure to note the sheer insanity of the situation, and in terms the wannabe gunslinger would understand. "You shoulda seen the looks on them fact-rustlers’ faces when ol’ Killer Cameron bravely refused ta face ‘em. Then he called ‘em names behind their backs! Go ahead, say he’s yeller all ya want — cuz, well, that’s what he is — but he’s the one wearin’ the white hat, if’n ya really don’t think about it." -

After the name calling, Cameron screened a documentary, casting himself as the hero against an evil Brazilian electricity company "before jet-setting back to that carbon credit trader’s wet dream he calls a home" as Red State's Caleb Howe so aptly put it.

This turned out to be just the beginning of the circus. Hot Air was ahead of the curve, predicting the excuses Cameron's camp would pitch to the public, predicting Cameron would go with not wanting to "legitimatize skeptics."

Turns out Hot Air's expectations were too high and that Cameron's excuses boiled down to arrogance.

"Cameron is now claiming he canceled the climate debate at the last minute because I am not worthy to debate him. Cameron claims I have not achieved a 'stature in our society' that is 'similar to his.' Looks like I may have a long wait to rise to Cameron's level of environmental consciousness!" said Mark Morano, Climate Depot.

But you know what, we've become familiar with climate alarmists refusing to debate or answer questions.  As Morano noted, "Cameron was given the standard Al Gore talking points, and he was repeating them..."  It's too bad that Cameron is also taking cues from  Gore's attitude toward hard questions.

We know we haven't heard the last of this story.  Stay tuned, for the next installment in the Cameron No-Show.

But, Jimmy (and yesterday it would have been Mr. Cameron, sir.) - you just threw your stature into the toilet with that public statement. Most of us wouldn't be willing to climb down there to debate you!

If it weren't for the special effects there would be no movie,
Cameron's movies are garbage, simplistic crap from an arrogant
hack who spends too much time underwater and not enough time writing a good script.
I can it "The Lucas Syndrome" by taking a real shitty script and "just good enough" acting performances
and stringing it together with incredible special effects.
Technology will not turn shit into champagne, no matter how hard you try.

Stature and James Cameron
It seems to me you want wrestle Steven Hawking or maybe box Stevie Wonder.
Maybe you can debate with Paris Hilton. Not sure if you could handle Sarah Palin.

James, as a director, you have few peers; but as a proponent of a fairy tale like CAGW, you are TERRIBLY out of your depth.

He Reminds me of Sir Robin
Brave James Cameron ran away... bravely ran away away...
When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled.
Yes, brave James Cameron turned about, and valiantly, he chickened out.
Bravely taking to his feet, he beat a very brave retreat. A brave retreat by brave James Cameron.

Avatar Schavater - all the hype ad money could buy
I didn't even bother going to see Avatar. The guy is a snob who thinks that great special effects make a great movie. They don't. I'd congratulate the CGI team for a job well done and then laugh in the face of this overrated generator of propaganda films. Roland Emmerich has good special effects in his films as well . . .

I agree with one thing though. Cameron should be debating with people of his stature. I'd say Sesame Street, but that would be indoctrinating the children. Go debate the guy with an "end is near" sign on a street corner and leave science to real scientists, not your little politically connected mafia gang of con artists pretending to be scientists. Political intimidation doesn't mean consensus.

So, Cameron, will you be bringin' a wiffleball bat to th' gun fight?

Jct: It always astounds me to see people chicken out and run away then talk like they didn't have a streak of yellow down their backs. If you want to bye bye the trash, you have flash flash the cash. Someone should ask him to put his money where his mouth is, make him back down from a bet. I made the billionaire dragons on CBC's Dragons' Den back down from a $500 bet and laughed that no matter how much bankroll they had, they had to back down to John The Engineer and laughed at them. Of course, that's not what the viewers got to see.

The Director Mr. Cameron; has apparently become delusional under the mere stress of successs!

Just because he is SUCKcessfull at MOVIE making and Story crafting, (A.K.A. SPINNING), does NOT, vault his self aggrandized, bloviating immanance to any other STATUS of


He is about as Qualified to espouse CLIMATIC Facts as He is to Pilot a Craft to SATURN!

Perhaps he should SUCK UP to AL GORE and sell Carbon Credits on EARTH, where C02 is exhailed and consumed by Plantlife to make: 0 2!

Stick a CORK in IT and GO to see Hugo Chavez!

Debate Bloomberg's Climage Change stooge
Because Cameron chickened out of the debate I would like to arrange a debate with Mayor Bloomberg"s chief stooge for climate change - ERIC POOLEY. www.ericpooley.com/

I have sent him a message challenging him to debate Ann McElhinney - lets see if he is man enough to accept the challenge.
