Pathetic Climate Change Propaganda
Ben & Jerry’s and Unilever are two corporations among many engaged in climate change propaganda; it isn’t enough to sell ice cream now that the ice cream is…oh my gosh… melting. Unless a corporation has a leftist customer base they have little or no financial incentive to engage in these types of campaigns, which can only serve to piss off the “climate denier”. Backing a “cause” is always a risky behavior for a money making operation. It makes you wonder when so many businesses feel the need to play Russion Roulette backing a highly controversal issue?
The Unilever propaganda video relies upon “The science is settled” mantra for its main argument. It’s as obvious as the thermostat on the wall or so the analogy goes. Of course, everyone knows that the climate is always changing and the science is never settled because there is no such thing as universal agreement on an idea as controversial as CO2, as a pollutant. Unilever has an entire subdomain set up for diseminating climate change propaganda, called bright Future.
And the saddest part is, you can tell they actually think they are being clever here…
Sorry if this climate change propaganda makes your forehead ache like you inhaled too many Slurpees.
At least you were warned.

Failed Climate Change Prophesies
You won’t hear these epic failed attempts to predict climate catastrophe in the news. (H/T to Newsobserveronline)
* In 1989, the United Nations predicted that “entire nations would be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels by the year 2000” as a result of “climate change.”
A senior environmental official at the United Nations, Noel Brown, says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels if global warming is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of “eco-refugees,” threatening political chaos, said Brown, director of the New York office of the UN Environment Program. He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect.
* In 2007, the chief of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Rajendra Kumar Pachauri, said, “If there’s no action before 2012, that’s too late. What we do in the next two to three years will determine our future. This is the defining moment.”
* On Jan. 19, 2009, James Hansen, ‘climate expert’ who was formerly head of NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies, firmly declared that President Obama “has only four years to save the Earth.”
* In 2014, satellite images showed that the Arctic ice cap was thicker than ever, and covered 1.7 million square kilometers more than two years previously, in spite of infamous alarmist Al Gore’s 2007 prediction it would be ice-free by that year.
While there is some evidence for environmental damage as a result of industrialization, it is clear that the hysteria over “climate change” has taken on a distinctly political tinge—and an anti-Western one at that.
Quotes From Noted Scientists
“Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history…When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.” – UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist.
“Creating an ideology pegged to carbon dioxide is a dangerous nonsense…The present alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control, a pretext for major businesses and political battle. It became an ideology, which is concerning.” – Environmental Scientist Professor Delgado Domingos of Portugal, the founder of the Numerical Weather Forecast group, has more than 150 published articles.
“Since I am no longer affiliated with any organization nor receiving any funding, I can speak quite frankly….As a scientist I remain skeptical.” – Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Joanne Simpson, the first woman in the world to receive a PhD in meteorology and formerly of NASA who has authored more than 190 studies and has been called “among the most preeminent scientists of the last 100 years.
“Climate change is pure political propaganda that has nothing to do with science,” and that in reality, the world’s “deserts are greening from rising CO2.”–One of the original founders of Greenpeace, Dr. Patrick Moore.
“I urge you when looking at a graph, check the scales! The uncertainty here is tenths of a degree,” he noted. “When someone points to this and says this is the warmest temperature on record, what are they talking about? It’s just nonsense. This is a very tiny change period. And they are arguing over hundredths of a degree when it is uncertain in tenths of a degree,” —Dr. Richard Lindzen, former Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences.
“Policies to reduce CO2 are “based on nonsense” and on “computer models that do not work. We are being led down a false path. Our breath is not that different from a power plant”.–Will Happer, Professor of Physics at Princeton University and former director of the US Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
