Global Propaganda. Climate change science has been proven a tool of radical left wing politics. For 50 years climate scientists have been making a living selling fake data to gullable public. All of the claims fall flat. Pollution, over fishing and wilderness management are problems, mostly in the third world. If you are pushing climate change you are advocating the loss of human rights and freedoms, not the other way around. Al Gore has only increased his carbon foot print. Think about that.
