Exxon Disinformation is still doing damage………………… the Channel 4 programme “The Great Global Warming Swindle” not only trotted out some very old discredited arguments but also figures like Fred Singer who have long been part of the Exxon-sponsored climate denial and disinformation machine. But the programme convinced many – or at least weakened their sense of certainty about the global warming threat. There are many difficult political battles left to be won to get the radical action we need and this will make them harder………..they could take longer to win and we are in a race against time……………

Looks like Channel 4 are up to their old, shock and awe tricks again with another programme, this time in the guise of Dispatches, trying to discredit carbon off-setting and green energy tariff schemes…. I’ve found the following summary of the programme. Will be interesting to see which ‘experts’ they have consulted and whether they’ll be more scientific and balanced in their treatment of the subject this time.

Channel 4 News Science Correspondent Tom Clarke dissects the many 'solutions' to global warming being marketed to consumers, from tree planting and carbon offsetting to green energy tariffs.

Great Green Smokescreen



Days after Live Earth partied for the planet, Dispatches reveals how attempts to buy our way out of climate crisis may not be delivering. Channel 4 News' Science Correspondent Tom Clarke dissects the many 'solutions' to global warming - from carbon off-setting to green energy tariffs.

Jetting off on holidays and mini-breaks - we're increasingly turning to off-setting to alleviate our environmental guilt. It's a boom industry, with dozens of new companies springing up each year to offset everything from weddings to babies' nappies.

The UK's biggest players have a collective turn-over in excess of £2m. And now big business is in on the act with Barclays, HSBC and Sky off-setting themselves and Dell and BP selling offsets to their customers.

But are offsets really the answer in the fight against global warming? Clarke investigates a number of projects - from tree-planting in the UK to pig manure in Mexico - all of which are supposed to cancel out our carbon footprint. But do these projects stand up to scrutiny?

So what else should consumers consider? Green energy tariffs look appealing, but research commissioned for Dispatches shows they often don't make a watt of difference.

Carbon labelling is being talked up a storm, but scientists tell Dispatches that labelling may not be a credible reality for some time to come.

One way of making a difference, Clark discovers, might be to take direct personal action to lower our own carbon emissions. But given the small amount of savings each of us can make as individuals, is that any more than a token gesture?
