“The judge identified nine aspects of An Inconvenient Truth, nine core errors, where Al Gore either misstated the IPCC or prejudicially exaggerated what they found.” John Day is the lawyer for a British parent who sued the British Department

Lies Of The Environmental Elite
Written by By Phelim McAleer

The lies just keep coming from the environmental movement. And they just keep getting ignored by the mainstream media.

Last week I attended the "solar-powered" New York premiere of "The Age Of Stupid," a documentary that claims that the human race will be extinct by 2055 because of manmade Global Warming. The documentary was also quite clear that "apart from burning down a forest, flying is the worst thing one could do to cause climate change."

Given that flying is so dangerous and our destruction so imminent, I decided to ask the filmmakers and their celebrity supporters if they had flown there. But after a few uncomfortable answers and several attempts to avoid the question, the filmmakers decided to use their security muscle to manhandle me off the Green carpet. It seems no inconvenient truths were allowed at this movie premiere.

But the cover-up did not start with their refusal to answer awkward questions on the Green carpet. The whole premiere was a sham and a lie. It was supposed to be a low-carbon, solar powered event and so it appeared when the cameras were there in the evening.

However, visiting the scene a few hours earlier, I uncovered the dirty little secret of "The Age Of Stupid" premiere. They were using diesel-powered trucks to put the tent and equipment in place. But before the media arrived, the trucks were removed and the solar panels left in place to imply that a major event could be organized without using fossil fuels.

This is a lie. It is not a harmless lie. The makers of the documentary and the Enviro-establishment want a ban on the use of fossil fuels within 10 years. They say renewables will be enough to power our homes, workplaces and schools. Even worse, they claim renewables will be sufficient to power much-needed development in Asia and Africa.

But the people who are making this claim cannot even power a film premiere without using fossil fuels. Their deception is breathtaking, but their double standards are appalling and verging on criminal.

Those who are trying to force "sustainability" on the people of Africa and the poor of the developing world cannot even have a simple planned event without breaking their own rules and lying about it.

For the environmental elite who organized the New York premiere of "The Age Of Stupid," sustainability is a pose -- a marketing device -- but not something that should interfere with their way of life. But for the poor of the developing world and developed world, "sustainability" is a guarantee that they and their children will live short and poverty stricken lives.

New BRANCH CARBONIAN CULT label for the AGW Scam
Dear NotEvilJustWrong Leaders:

As a matter of truth-in-labeling and of "Knowing the Enemy," please take time to word-search the recommended new "BRANCH CARBONIAN CULT" name for this pseudo-religious AGW scam -- whose self-evident cultic characteristics include

1. Leadership by a self-glorifying, manipulative New Age Prophet -- in this case, former Vice-President Al Gore, though he is rapidly being supplanted by President Barack Obama.

2. Assertion of an apocalyptic threat to all mankind.

3. An absolutist definition of both the threat and the proposed solution(s).

4. Promise of a salvation from this pending apocalypse.

5. Devotion to an inspired text which (arguendo) embodies all the answers -- in this case, Prophet Gore's pseudo-scientific book "Earth in the Balance" and his more recent "An Inconvenient Truth" documentary.

6. A specific list of "truths" (see the Ten Commandments listed below) which must be embraced and proselytized by all Cult members.

7. An absolute intolerance of any deviation from any of these truths by any Cult member.

8. A strident intolerance of any outside criticism of the Cult's definition of the problem or of its proposed solutions.

9. A "Heaven-on-Earth" vision of the results of the mission's success and/or a "Hell-on-Earth" result if the cultic mission should fail.

10. An inordinate fear (and an outright rejection of the possibility) of being proven wrong in either the apocalyptic vision or the proposed salvation

Since every such Prophet-led, scare-mongering, pseudo-religious conspiracy needs a properly descriptive name, and since this one's primary concerns over alleged depletion of the so-called "ozone layer" over Antarctica have shifted to a panic over CO2, instead, a fitting name for this cultic gaggle might be the "Branch Carbonian Cult" --

o "Branch" because it is a radical offshoot from the main body of science-based environmentalism;

o "Carbonian" because of its professed fear of carbon dioxide as a primary cause of AGW; and

o "Cult" because of its self-evident structure and practices -- which are in full accord with most elements of the typical religious cult, Branch Davidian or Jim Jonesian or otherwise.

Naturally, anything you can do to use this new label or post the AmericanThinker.com article which explains its validity in great detail -- http://www.americanthinker.com/jim_guirard/ -- will keep the ball rolling to make this condemnatory label a permanent part of the political and environmental affairs lexiclon.

Franny Armstrong Interview on Sydney radio
I heard Franny Armstrong's shrill rants on Sydney radio in August this year. It was beyond disturbing that she really believes what she's saying and that people are listening to her. She called for the immediate grounding of 90% of flights, stated 300 million people are dying because of climate change and other outrageous statements to numerous to mention. When the interviewer made reference to Al Gore and herself flying around the world etc, she said it was necessary to get the message to the world to save us all from a terrible and looming end. I wonder if she eats raw veggies by candlelight? I wonder if she has cold showers - she certainly needs one. She's a psycho but a dangerous one.
