Greenman3610’s Videos for Beginners

Greenman3610 (Peter Sinclair) is now doing a series of videos that are meant to debunk the disinformation and lies put out by Climaticide denialists. The information is designed to help out folks who don’t know what to say when a denialist friend says that global warming is nonsense because “This is the most snow we’ve had around here in years.”

These videos are also a good way for beginners to learn some basic global warming concepts. The videos are short, well made and scientifically accurate. I will update this page with new videos as they come out.

Learn more about Ennhanced Geothermal Energy, which is beeing supported by Google.

ACTIVISM

From the We campaign: an ad for the 2008 Olympic games

The best ad so far from Al Gore’s We campaign

Latest ad from the We Campaign. This is the ad that ABC refused to run during the 20-20 televsion show, despite (or because of) the fact that they run many, many ads from oil and coal companies.

Protests against coal shipments from the port of Newcastle in Australia

Very funny, but somewhat vulgar, (so consider yourself warned) Greenpeace video about light bulbs and energy conservation.

From the 350.org campaign

POLICY

Video of Al Gore’s Challenge to America speech about getting off fossil-fuels in 10 years, given at Constitution Hall on July 17, 2008.

Thomas Friedman clearly shows that John McCain’s energy policy is Climaticide.

Dr. Hansen offers two suggestions to the next American president.

IDEOLOGY AND POLITICS

Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) puts Senator James Inhofe (R-Exxon) in his place when he tries to limit Al Gore’s testimony to Congress. (Inhofe only likes short simple answers.)

Sarah Palin favors huntings wolves from aircraft. Check out what that looks like.

The League of Conservation Voters spells out John McCain’s hypocrisy on clean sustainable energy.

MUSIC

U2 and Green Day: The Saints are Coming My favorite politico-environmental video.

Give Oil Wars a Chance/Yes We Can: Words and music and video by Rick McClean

Marvin Gaye Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology Song)

Responses

  1. Just FYI, ‘Black Moon’ and ‘Paradise’ were taken down when WMG went on a mass removal of their songs on YouTube

    • Thanks. I’ll take down the links. (Why these record companies insist on turning down free publicity is beyond me.)
