The money trail

Somehow the tables have turned. For all the smears of big money funding the “deniers”, the numbers reveal that the sceptics are actually the true grassroots campaigners, while Greenpeace defends Wall St. How times have changed.

Sceptics are fighting a billion dollar industry aligned with a trillion dollar trading scheme. Big Oil’s supposed evil influence has been vastly outdone by Big Government, and even those taxpayer billions are trumped by Big-Banking.

The big-money side of this debate has fostered a myth that sceptics write what they write because they are funded by oil profits. They say, follow the money? So I did and it’s chilling. Greens and environmentalists need to be aware each time they smear with an ad hominem attack they are unwittingly helping giant finance houses.

Tale of Two Headlines

On Fox.com’s website today, we get a plea for war on Iran asap:

IRAN MUST BE STOPPED

This insane propaganda claims:

Ahmadinejad has told the world all about his ultimate intentions. He seeks the destruction of Israel and of the United States. His country is building the instrumentalities by which he could achieve his goals, while the world sits back and watches.

Hmmmm….. Ahmadinejad has told the world they are building a power plant.  They are in full compliance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (which Israel is not) and allow UN IAEA inspections of their nuclear facilities (Israel does not).  I’m not saying he’s a great guy–just stating the facts.

Here’s another interesting headline about a different perspective:

RUSSIAN MILITARY CHIEF WARNS U.S. AGAINST STRIKING IRAN

Here’s an excerpt:

Russia’s top military warned the US on Wednesday against using force against Iran over its controversial nuclear ambitions, saying the consequences would be “dreadful”.

“The consequences, I believe, would be dreadful for Iran, as well as Russia, the entire Asia—Pacific community,” said Gen. Nikolai Makarov, chief of Russia’s General Staff.

So, basically we have warmongers crying for war over here in the U.S., while Russia warns “Back off–that’s OUR OIL”.

Who wants war with Russia?  Anyone?  ….Anyone?
