Are we allowed for a little while, Tony? Please?
I'm so glad there was a followup panel on that film. Seeing all those
'scientists' commenting in the 'documentary' (mockumentary?) I was
being persuaded to rethink. Shows the power of the medium. Tony Jones
was magic! Yes, perhaps as one of the panelists said, he should ask
tough questions of the Nicholas Stearns of the world as well, but he
exposed the track record of the guy who produced this one and several
of the 'experts' who are serial naysayers and under the pay of big
oil and big tobacco. The regular viewer in the UK wouldn't have had
the benefit of this extra information.
3 Cheers to Auntie and I take back my pre-judgement that I sent in
the letter saying this shouldn't be screened. It is must see ONLY
with the benefit of followup to balance the message.
BTW, one of the more perverse but entertaining aspects of the program
was the audience participation at the end. Talk about fringe
elements! I couldn't decide it they brought a bus from Nimbin or
gathered up some of the mentally challenged roaming the streets. It
was truly bizarre.
