Greenpeace says that big oil companies and American billionaire industrialists are spending tens of millions of dollars funding groups that deny man-made climate change.
Over recent years, worldwide scientific agreement on man-made climate change has moved from 90 to 95 per cent, while at the same time most Britons and Americans and half of all Australians do not believe in man-made climate change.
If you can understand climate change, then simply name six CO2 based temperature feedback loops, for example oceans warm thus releasing dissolved CO2.
The result of oil company and industrialists’ control of public opinion has been the sacking of governments and ridicule of individuals, who try to limit man-made climate change.
Greenland’s ice cap melt has increased from 137 billion tonnes a year in 2003, to 286 billion tonnes melt in 2009.
In Antarctica the ice mass loss increased from 104 billion tonnes per year in 2006 to 246 billion tonnes per year in 2009.
Al Gore says that if Greenland ice continues to melt, it will stop the gulf stream, and that will cause Europe to go into an ice age.
