) on the rather predictable lack of concern and condemnation of US enviro-activist groups about the 1010global.org group's horrible 'detonate non-global warming believers' video.
Nothing to see here, move along.
But our friends at Greenpeace could not resist turning it into an opportunity to regurgitate a long-time accusation about allegedly corrupt funding:
Of the environmental organizations contacted by TheDC, only Greenpeace offered its take on the ad.
“As an organization committed to
non-violence, I think you can imagine how Greenpeace views this material. At this time, the only people promoting the material are climate skeptics and think tanks funded by corporations known for lobbying against climate change legislation,” said Greenpeace spokeswoman Jane Kochersperger.
There's one little problem. This funding accusation has every appearance of being unsupportable and there are myriad problems with the people surrounding the origins of the accusation, including Obama Science Czar John Holdren and NOAA administrator Jane Lubchenco, as I detailed in my latest American Thinker
article, "The Curious History of 'Global Climate Disruption' " (link
In a way, Holdren's efforts over a decade ago are in a straight line to that awful video - don't defend the science, just make sure nobody trusts skeptics by ANY means possible.
In this case, the Greenpeace spokesperson once again deflects the narrative back to their propaganda about scheming skeptics, and you know this will soon be regurgitated by left-wing bloggers in viral form. Thus, the fundamental premise of the video is promoted after all - anybody with opposing viewpoints must be viewed with suspicion.
