Use Of Visual Media As A Propaganda Tool

Both visual media You Tube and Television are regularly being utilised by Greenpeace and other environmental interest groups to hype their climate change propaganda, as can be seen from these two example links:

This one showing Santa being rescued from a melting North Pole by the Rainbow Warrior:

This one showing a Polar Bear watching it’s world melt away that ran as a TV commercial:

There is no subtlety to them, they are designed to invoke an emotional reaction of fear and concern thus making the watcher become more willing to part with their hard earned currency.

According to the late Michael Crichton (author of the Global Warming novel “State of Fear” and AGW sceptic)

Environmental organizations are fomenting false fears in order to promote agendas and raise money.

Also according to Richard S.
Lindzen, (Ph.D. Professor of Meteorology, MIT)

“There is a clear attempt to establish truth not by scientific methods but by perpetual repetition.”
