Oil-Funded Al Jazeera to Air Anti-Fossil Fuel Global Warming Film

Even the revelation that almost a million square miles of new ice in the Arctic hasn't stopped global warming - and anti-capitalists - from producing another global warming documentary, Do The Math, that's set to air on the oil-funded Al-Jazeera network.

Left-wing journalist Bill McKibben and are uniting to launch the first salvo in their war against the fossil fuel industry.   They say their science and facts are solid, but they're dead wrong.

How?  Well, for starters, global temperatures have stagnated for the past sixteen years. The Arctic Ice Sheet, which was supposed to be ice-free by 2013, has grown by 920,000 square miles last year. The Northwest Passage, whose lack of ice has been used as a talking point by the left, has been frozen solid this year.

In all, Earth amassed 19,000 Manhattans worth of sea ice in 2013 alone. Additionally, concerning wild weather, the United States experienced the quietest tornado season in sixty years.  As a result, the UN's report on climate has been pushed back a month.

In the trailer for the film Do The Math, McKibben says, "if it's wrong to wreck the climate, it's wrong to profit from that wreckage." It even goes so far as to call Exxon, Chevron, BP, Shell and ConocoPhillips "a rogue force."

Well, given how Al-Jazeera is primarily fund by oil money - which is fossil fuel money - isn't this, the seat of hypocrisy? Of course - and McKibben has even criticized Al Gore for selling Current TV to Al-Jazeera.

Nevertheless, as with Gasland, which went after the natural gas industry, expect the same flaccid predictions that we're all doomed if we continue to fill our cars with gas.

As the trailer warns: "What's at stake now is civilization itself."

Global warming is a hoax.  In 1975, Newsweek published an article called Our Cooling World, which predicted global cooling and massive food shortages.  In more recent times, the prediction was changed to "global warming," and now the catch-all "climate disruption."

Trying to control nature is an expensive proposition - and a losing one.
