New film: The Boy Who Cried Warming

From the producer:

I wanted to reach out and inform you that the film was recently completed and virtually launched on our website, August 24th, 2012.

Every Global Warming prediction, has proven to be science fiction. Uncover the truth as we expose the shepherds of Climate Change in this new controversial

documentary. Introducing first time filmmakers Pete Garcia II (director), Jesse Jones (writer), Deyvis Martinez (dp), Will Rich (sound) in their debut feature length

film. Independently funded, this indie documentary in not associated with any corporate sponsorship or funding whatsoever. No hidden agendas, just the COLD

truth. Support our grassroots campaign through word of mouth.Help spread the word!

The documentary is released just in time for the Venice Film Festival, where it will neither be seen nor even mentioned, all in the interest of safety. Once viewed, word would quickly spread of the film’s unholy nature and the filmmakers would instantly be hunted down by the legions of the hip and cool, driven barking mad by truth.

William McClenney

I persist in misunderstanding why it is that seemingly so few seem capable of realizing that we very well could be close to the end of the present extreme interglacial. Sure, the PDO went negative, on time, about 2008, the AMDO either has, or soon will, so at best we are in for another 30 or so years of NH cooling. With the sun going all quiet on us. At a half-precession old, plus a few centuries, extreme interglacial……
We know that most all of the most recent interglacials either had the obvious and normal thermal peak at or near its deglacial beginning (think Holocene Climate Optimum, sawtooth shape ad nauseum etc.), And we know that MIS-5e ended with two strong thermal excursions right at its very end. MIS-7 having 3 distinct such peaks, MIS-9 one or two, MIS-11 at least two over this long-lived one, and MIS-19 having 3 distinct thermal pulses right at its end.
I simply fail to see how the 2007 IPCC AR4 worst-case scenario of 0.59 meters of sea level rise by 2100 could even unreasonably be considered anomalous against the most recent natural end extreme interglacial sea level “noise” of a minimum of +6 meters, maximum of +52 meters (10 to nearly 100 times the worst AGW prognostication).
I would really be interested to know just how many here would be scared out of their wits by a UN consensus that a manmade signal, coming in at best 10% of the end extreme interglacial noise, constitutes an anomaly.
Enlighten me. Please.
At the end of this very Homo sapiens day, if you are worried about the efficacy of CO2 as a GHG, you had better hope and pray that its powers as a GHG are absolutely correct. If there is even the remotest possibility that the Holocene might be winding up to wind down into the next glacial, would the “wise one” strip the climate security blanket from the late Holocene atmosphere?
Really? Are you quite sure? Feel free to elucidate…….

It’s a nice film, I like it. It just shouldn’t remain alone. If they claim all predictions were fiction, they should bring evidence for it. Polar bears are not enough.

I got the link from the Bishop’s site and watched it all. I don’t know or care if it is a form of confirmation bias or any of the other denigrating, life experience robbing behavior definitions (concern troll being my least favorite – thanks to that we can’t even be legitimately and publicly concerned for each other), this is a nicely done video.

You know, copies of this would make great early Christmas presents for friends and family. Just a thought. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Interesting. Of course, polar bears are stars again. By the way, if someone tells you that the polar bears look thin, here’s the reason. They are on hunger strike. The pis*ed off polar bears have created their own website here:
http://www.pissedoffpolarbears.com/
By the hunger strike, the polar bear Americans are trying to force the New York Times to fire Andrew Revkin who is too much of a denier for the pis*ed off polar bears. 😉

I seem to remember that the wolf did turn up, how many were eaten?

I’m always sceptical when I read any claim that begins “Every………”
That’s a statement of fact, and I predict it’ll get shot down & so needlessly destroy the remaining credibility.

Mjk

So “every prediction has proven to be science fiction.” Talk about an overstatement. It discredits the film immediately. Off to check out latest stats on this year’s record low in the arctic……

‘Every Global Warming prediction, has proven to be science fiction.’
Ignoring the unfortunate comma, this is a silly statement! Why must ‘our’ side stoop to thoughtless exaggeration? Change ‘Every’ to ‘Almost all’ and the spiel would have real credibility.

I place this film on a par with “The Great Global Warming Swindle” and “The Cloud Mystery”. It’s very convincing and effective.

Stephen Wilde

The wolf eventually ate the flock because of the earlier lies by the shepherd boy.
The moral being that false alarms are dangerous both for the alarmist and those to whom he tries to spread alarm because the latter group no longer know what is true and what is false.

I don’t think it’s about whether the wolf turns up or not, it’s about the fact one shouldn’t lie about it.
My memory of the story might be wrong but I think only the boy got eaten because no one believed him when he cried wolf for real. Foolish thing, to lie for gain. If it ever happens for real, in whichever direction (warming or cooling), no one will be listening to “climate scientists”.

I watched it – very disappointed. It waffled on and on with stuff we’ve seen before over and over.
they didn’t show the lack of warming over the past 15 years.
they resolved all their charts to 2005!
they skipped over climategate 1 and ignored climategate 2.
sorry guys – no contribution, thanks for trying.
Unfortunately you do do more harm than good.
BTW who wrote all the music?

I’d love to watch this film if it wasn’t apparently and frustratingly locked up behind some kind of impassable secure cookie paywall(?), or something.
The only way I am going to be able to watch it is if I download it and watch it LATER on my laptop in my own good time. The paywall(?) seems to frustrate that for users like me. Which is a pity, because, I if I watched it that way, my three older children would watch it with me before bedtime.
Thanks for pointing to the film anyway.
What a pity the producers seems to have scored an “own goal” here, by making it virtually impossible for people like me and my family to watch.
For goodness’ sake, why wouldn’t they WANT people to watch it and thus make it easy for them to watch and to tell their friends about it?
If I can’t watch it, then I’m not likely to recommend it to any of my friends – am I?

The wolf the boy first saw was a summer wolf , full of food and ample sustinence, he did not need to feed….. the one that finally arrived was a much thinner, whiter version. And took many many lives.

How do I contact the producers to ask permission to run this on our local cable access channel and produce copies to give out for free or to put on climateDVD.com?
Thanks

Just the alarmist.
The moral of the tale is, if you spread alarmism, don’t expect people to believe you if you find a real crisis exists. Modify the story a little, and the boy (climate scientist) at the end cries “Tiger, Tiger.” (global cooling) and no one believes him.

The prediction originally was polar amplification. When this clearly wasn’t happening in the Antarctic, but was apparently in the Arctic, the prediction morphed into Arctic amplification.
Thus the prediction was ‘science fiction’. All the rest is post hockery.
In order to qualify as science you must make the prediction, before the event occurs.

_________________________
You and me both.
I sometimes wonder if the whole CAGW/ Agenda 21/Sustainability/de-industrialization crap is all about reducing the majority of humans to the 18th century level so we haven’t got a snowballs change in Hades of migrating south as the glaciers advance and no decent weapons to fight with even if we do. I can not believe the Movers and Shakers in this world are oblivious to the fact we are nearing the end of the Holocene. Sort of puts a different light on the African and South American Land Grab doesn’t it?
The End of the Freedom to Travel in the USA

…By now, most Americans have heard of sustainable development but are largely unaware of Agenda 21.
In a nutshell, the plan calls for governments to take control of all land use and not leave any of the decision making in the hands of private property owners. It is assumed that people are not good stewards of their land and the government will do a better job if they are in control. Individual rights in general are to give way to the needs of communities as determined by the governing body. Moreover, people should be rounded up off the land and packed into human settlements, or islands of human habitation, close to employment centers and transportation. Another program, called the Wildlands Project spells out how most of the land is to be set aside for non-humans….
Although counties say that they support agricultural uses, eating locally produced food, farmer’s markets, etc, in fact there are so many regulations restricting water and land use (there are scenic corridors, inland rural corridors, baylands corridors, area plans, specific plans, redevelopment plans, huge fees, fines) that farmers are losing their lands altogether. County roads are not being paved. The push is for people to get off of the land, become more dependent, come into the cities. To get out of the suburbs and into the cities. Out of their private homes and into condos. Out of their private cars and onto their bikes.
…What’s the connection with bike groups? National groups such as Complete Streets, Thunderhead Alliance, and others, have training programs teaching their members how to pressure for redevelopment, and training candidates for office. It’s not just about bike lanes, it’s about remaking cities and rural areas to the ‘sustainable model’. High density urban development without parking for cars is the goal. This means that whole towns need to be demolished and rebuilt in the image of sustainable development. Bike groups are being used as the ‘shock troops’ for this plan.
http://www.democratsagainstunagenda21.com/index.html

In one of her videos on Agenda 21, Rosa Koire, mentions the “pulverizing of roads,” a joint US/china project for a sterilization vaccine and using Global Warming as the scare tactic for implementing Agenda 21. (well worth seeing) Rosa worked for the California Department of Transportation in land takings (Eminent domain)
Then consider TSA – Elderly Women Strip Searched At JFK and Individuals on The No Fly List Are Not Issued Boarding Passes This is not just for flying either TSA Is Searching Your Car, Subway, Ferry, Bus, AND Plane

..TSA Administrator John Pistole told Congress last week that the TSA conducts 8,000 unannounced security screenings every year. These screenings, conducted with local law enforcement agencies as well as immigration, can be as simple as checking out cargo at a busy seaport. But more and more, they seem to involve giving airport-style pat-downs and screenings of unsuspecting passengers at bus terminals, ferries, and even subways….

I wonder how long it will be before we will need “passports” just to leave town?

will watch it when the tennis is over – LOL.
meanwhile, a study published in the Journal of Climate, seems to go against the usual CAGW-associating propaganda, whether or not their findings are proven to be valid:
30 Aug: Australian: Matthew Denholm: Antarctic ice sheds light on big dry
EASTERN Australia is experiencing its driest period since the Middle Ages, according to a study that overturns the nation’s understanding of average rainfall.
Scientists at the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Co-operative Research Centre have used ice cores, drilled into the east Antarctic ice, to provide a record of the climate during the past 1000 years…
The resulting confidence in the correlation between low salt-ice concentrations in east Antarctica and rainfall in eastern Australia allowed the scientists to calculate a rainfall record stretching back to the year 1000. This data suggests rainfall in eastern Australia since 1920 is below the average of the past 1000 years.
The last similarly dry period was from AD1000 to 1260, in particular between 1160 and 1260, the year Kublai Khan became ruler of the Mongol Empire.
“In the context of the last 1000 years, it (eastern Australia) is a lot drier than normal,” Dr Vance told The Australian. “But we can see that there has been another dry period as well (ending in 1260).”…
“It is a leap — it is a proxy record, in that it tells us something about what really happened,” she said. “It is not an exact record like an instrumental record, but it is a significant finding. This (salts in Antarctic ice) is significantly related to rainfall in Australia.”
It was not possible to draw any definitive conclusions as to what caused the big dry that ended in 1260, or the present extended dominance of El Nino.
“We are pretty sure reduced rainfall is the result of increased or more frequent El Ninos during both periods, compared to the last 1000 years,” Dr Vance said. “The cause of those El Ninos is up for grabs.” While rising temperatures may be driving the present period of El Nino dominance, less was known about the period from 1160 to 1260…
Published in the Journal of Climate, the study is the work of the Hobart-based ACE CRC, Australian Antarctic Division and Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies.
http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/health-science/antarctic-ice-sheds-light-on-big-dry/story-e6frg8y6-1226461149921
From ABC – not a single word (in a very short piece) about AD1000 to 1260 or AD 1160 to 1260, in fact more an attempt to isolate the recent hundred years as something unprecedented:
30 Aug: ABC: Antarctic ice confirms we’ve had a dry spell – for a century

Really, try reading a few hundred of the climate change papers published each year. Some are physics, some are biology, some are paleo. Take your choice or read a mixture. They are written by scientists from around the world and they all are “wrong.” (?). I assume that both the data and the analysis are wrong (?) The first climate science prediction that comes to mind is that “warming will be fastest in the arctic” which is supported by data that the “arctic sea ice is melting.” Oh, it seems that I read somewhere that there has been a great recovery of the sea ice following the 2007 record melt. Is that what this movie is about, the sea ice recovery? I’m getting ready for work and don’t have time to watch it right now but may have a view this evening.

@ William McClenney
Yes, our climate has clearly shown that it is capable of extremes far beyond anything envisaged in IPCC reports. Am I somehow supposed to be reassured by the fact that sea levels have previously been between 6m and 52m higher than at present?

TomVonk

A film straplined ‘Every Global Warming prediction has proven to be science fiction’ is released in the week that the Arctice Ice extent hits a new low, already 0.8 million sq km below the prediction made by WUWT for the annual minimum.
Strawman.
I must have missed the Global Warming prediction of the Arctic (or Antarctic for that matter) sea ice extent in 2012.
Care to give a link?
On the other hand I quite distinctly remember predictions of an ice free Arctic Ocean every year after 2000, 2010, 2020 …
I do not remember predictions of an ice free Arctic Ocean starting in 1990, 1995 etc but would not be surprised if there are some too.
It makes me smile to see how all those CAGW believers carefully avoid to speak about Antarctic sea ice. Always 🙂
The prediction that ice will be melting is quite trivial, known for a long time (actually since Milankovitch) and needs no CAGW.
It has been melting for a long time, you know ? Exactly since the last Ice Age achieved its minimum.
Just get used to it – if the interglacial doesn’t brutally and unexpectedly end soon (what can’t be excluded) the ice will go on melting for a long time!
That’s what it always did during interglacials and this one is not an exception.
Eventually it may very well happen that Arctics will become one day completely ice free and if this interglacial is like an average interglacial, it will surely happen.
So what?

TomVonk

The first climate science prediction that comes to mind is that “warming will be fastest in the arctic” which is supported by data that the “arctic sea ice is melting.”
Well if this is the first “prediction” then you have a lot to learn.
The first prediction that should have come to mind was that “the Milankovich cycle predicts warming” and not surprisingly it is supported by the data about ice and for a MUCH longer time than only the 20th century.
And indeed in the warming phase of Milankovitch cycle, it is the high latitudes that change most. This si actually rather trivial, known since a long time and has been happening for millions of years regardless of “man made” CO2.
The first prediction and probably sofar the only one that has been substantiated, is that the temperatures should increase by about 0.3°C/decade (some predicted much bigger numbers).
And here the data don’t really suport that.
Biology makes certainly no predictions unless the one that it can predict a thing and its opposite simultaneously.
The place is missing to list all the stupidities that biology has “predicted” – a short research of this site will produce dozens of really amusing examples (the average size of some australian bird will increase in Paper 1 but it wil decrease in Paper 2. etc)
Here is the recipe how anybody can write a paper about biology and global warming.
1) Begin to say in introduction how horribly worrying is global warming
2) Choose a random parameter to measure (color of eggs, size of feet, height of bushes). The only important thing is that it changes. If it doesn’t change enough, choose something else.
3) Apply any kind of statistics on this. As you are ignorant in professional statistics like 99% of biologists, a least square regression will generally do.
4) Say that the trend you found is due to global warming.
5) To go sure repeat that this is worrying. The best among you will add that it is actually worse than we previously thought. Suggest that further research is necessary.
6) Submit and make sure that the reviewers are CAGW believers.
Publication and enthousiastic comments on Real Climate&Tamino’s guaranteed.

I just watched it and I think it’s a good effort but the clownish graphics and constant new age music playing in the background were a little too much for me. It’s almost like the director got bored with the material and decided to go crazy with Final Cut Pro. Nothing new here. And what’s with the creepy CG opening sequence where a team from the “United Nations Space Exploration” agency is viewing Earth from a space vehicle? Is that supposed to be a vision of our dystopian future if Obama wins a second term?
Anyway, I still consider The Great Global Warming Swindle to be the gold standard for skeptic themed films on the AGW topic. No other film even comes close except maybe The Greenhouse Conspiracy which in 1990 was a fairly groundbreaking documentary.

What data?
Almost every paper supporting cAGW first assumes that the conclusion is true and then goes from there. The most common method is to base a paper on models. Of course, models are just the assumptions of the programmers and hence are not data.
The real data? Well, no warming this century, TOA radiation above what the models predict, historic examples of warming equal to or greater than present, etc., etc. Yeah, that’s the real data.

Gail C says: “I can not believe the Movers and Shakers in this world are oblivious to the fact we are nearing the end of the Holocene.”
I believe the movers and shakers are movers and shakers because they have spent their lives studying how to accumulate wealth and power and, to varying degrees, apply it to suit one’s purpose. With all things viewed through that lens, truth is not an objective. Instead, “facts” (true or not) are viewed as a means to further that end. Climate change has myriad opportunities in this light making it an ideal means to that end, providing, however, that it can be blamed on man and corrected by implementing costly rules and regulations. Thus the majority of the movers and shakers are not just on board, but enthusiastically on board.

Stunning – It was absolutely superb, the graphics are fantastic, the information is very well presented.
