This video from the USA is called The Koch Brothers & Their Amazing Climate Change Denial Machine.
Another video about the USA which used to be on the Internet, used to say about itself:
The Denial Machine
In the past few years, a hurricane has engulfed the debate about global warming. This scientific issue has become a rhetorical firestorm with science pitted against spin and inflammatory words on both sides. This documentary shows how fossil fuel corporations have kept the global warming debate alive long after most scientists believed that global warming was real and had potentially catastrophic consequences. It shows that companies such as Exxon Mobil are working with top public relations firms and using many of the same tactics and personnel as those employed by Phillip Morris and RJ Reynolds to dispute the cigarette-cancer link in the 1990s. Exxon Mobil sought out those willing to question the science behind climate change, providing funding for some of them, their organizations and their studies.
US American author Michael Crichton has died in Los Angeles.
He was best known for the dinosaur fantasies of Jurassic Park, later made into movies by Steven Spielberg.
He was rather controversial.
From Democratic Underground in the USA, especially its list of Top Ten Conservative Idiots for 2006:
7. Michael Crichton massive ego
Michael Crichton received a fair amount of criticism for his 2004 novel State of Fear, which denies the existence of global warming and turns environmentalists into terrorists. (John Stossel loved it.)
But one critic got a little more than he bargained for. In March 2006, Michael Crowley wrote a cover story for the New Republic which took on Crichton’s dismissal of the opinions of the vast majority of climate scientists. Apparently Crichton wasn’t too happy about Crowley’s piece, so he gave him a small cameo in his most recent novel, Next.
Democratic Underground continues here with quoting a child pornography fantasy by Crichton from that book about Crowley.
