After their brief presentation at the weekly Chamber of Commerce luncheon the Juneau Empire printed an article reviewing the event. In the article, Oceana's Jeff Short described the presentation as an "oversimplified attempt to ... demonize environmentalists...." The reporter wrote that "Short ... encouraged an open debate."
Mr. Short, by his very words, was not encouraging an open debate. Short should hold his complaints until the multinational corporation he works for, Oceana, stops doing the very thing he finds so distasteful. On the Oceana home page, every mention of business is done in a way to "demonize" progress that would bring jobs to people in need and to characterize fisheries, manufacturing plants, and oil companies, to name a few, as "refusing" to give in to environmentalists' demands and as "political" forces to be "battled."
Short also told the Empire that the filmmakers "attempt to paint environmentalists as misguided, wrong-headed do-gooders that never get the science right and leads us into economic debacles over and over again is just a really misleading representation of the facts."
One of the key points made by McElhinney and McAleer over and over during their visit was that the organizations claiming to have settled the science on global warming are, in fact, continually being disproven by other scientists. The statistical sacred cows publicized by radical environmentalists' big money have indeed been wrong over and over again.
NASA and the UN's International Panel on Climate Change have both provided incorrect graphs and data to wealthy celebrities like Al Gore and liberal media institutions, and when they are proven wrong they bury that fact or refuse to discuss or admit it, allowing well-meaning policymakers, families, and regular folks like the people of Southeast Alaska to go on believing that what they had been told was fact is simply not true.
