In the third episode of his new TV series, Jesse Ventura is following the money trail, out to expose the most frightening, inconvenient Conspiracy Theory yet: That Global Warming may be a scam.

The movement claims the planet is heading to disaster because factories and cars are heating up the atmosphere with carbon dioxide. The green industry feeds off our fears and urges us to spend billions on products that purport to be good for the environment.

This week, Jesse and his investigators are traveling around the world to expose the power-brokers who pull the strings and rake in fortunes. The Conspiracy Theory team aims to get to the bottom of claims that global warming is a powerful plot meant to extort, tax and control all of us…



Katherine Goldstein questions the motives of the British Peer who has become the highest profile climate change denier, in the Huffington Post:

While tens of thousands of NGO’s, environmental activists, government officials and journalists have descended on the climate talks in Copenhagen, a small but vocal number of energy industry lobbyists and climate change deniers are staging events to put forward their point of view.

At one such event held by Americans For Prosperity, a right-wing group with funding ties to Exxon-Mobil and oil interests. [disinfo ed.’s note: we know this sentence doesn’t make sense.]

At their event in Copenhagen, a group of clean energy activists disrupted their meeting. In attendance was Lord Christopher Monckton, one of the most visible and outspoken voices against climate change science, who proceeded to call the protesters “Hitler Youth.”

The observation that natural climate variability exists is not a new one. Early in September 2009, at a gathering of experts on global climate change, one of the world’s most respected and experienced climate modelers: Mojib Latif, made some observations on climate, media and human nature.

The message seemed clear: natural variations in the long term warming, might be misinterpreted by the media, out of ignorance, or malice.

Climate deniers were quick to take Latif’s remarks, and begin doing exactly that.
