Prequel to the Great Global Warming Swindle

A very interesting bit of climate skepticism on Television. Hard to believe, I know, given that there is so little of it but this is from 1990 and so even more amazing. Greenhouse Conspiracy, video in 6 parts:

Part 1-

Part 2-

Part 3-

Part 4-

part 5-

Part 6-

Via Bishop Hill who calls it a "sort of an early version of the Great Global Warming Swindle" and also-

I was struck firstly by how shifty-eyed Tom Wigley and John Mitchell come across, particularly when Wigley is asked about funding at around 46 mins. If you don't want to invest the time in the full video, this is the excerpt to watch.

Then there is the clear statement by the late Reginald Newell that he had his funding cut because of he had published a paper that undermined the greenhouse theory.

Postmodern science is for the believers, not skeptics.

(emphasis mine)

The Great Global Warming Swindle is here.
