Exploring the world of so-called experts who make claims contrary to scientific findings. Their efforts have spread confusion and delayed action over cigarettes and toxic chemicals. Now they're concentrating on denying the man-made causes of climate change.

Director Robert Kenner traces the birth of the doubt industry to the 1950s, when tobacco companies began fighting the perception that cigarettes are harmful. Their efforts were largely successful for years. Now, climate-change denial is modelling its efforts on those of the tobacco companies.

Although legitimate scientists warn that we can't afford to delay action against fighting global warming, key climate skeptics say otherwise. Kenner uncovers their credentials and motivations and shows how they navigate the media, think tanks, and government circles.

  • 1 star "better stop breathing and save the earth from your CO2 crimes! They will stop at nothing until they form their world government."
  • 5 stars "What a shocking eye-opener. We are all collectively screwed"
  • 1 star "This is typical George Orwell doublespeak. Claim that's its everyone else lying and being deceitful not the people ushering in the new world order tyranny. There is many, many legitimate mainstream scientists that question man made global warming. And to top it of the pushers of this have been proven to change the data to suit there ends. LOOK IT UP. The best part of this is that they are the ones who use the same people to prove their lie that they are claiming the "deniers" use. This is just another propaganda piece to bring in their carbon tax. UN agenda 21's first commandment ( look up the Georgia guide stones) is the reduce population down to under 500,000,000 million. You've got to"
