A change.org petition and a conspiracy theory Wordpress blog.
And yet you chide rational people for a supposed lack of empirical peer-reviewed evidence.
People who are willing to bet the future of the planet on a “gut feeling” and ill-defined suspicion should not have ever become as prominent as they are. Perhaps it is another manifestation of the desperate need of modern extremists to be “oppressed” by something or someone.
Since I suspect the self-proclaimed experts on this thread will pooh-Pooh any journal articles or other professional publications I care to supply as being “biased”, “corrupt”, or otherwise unsuitable, I’ll just offer this from the BHP website:
BHP accepts the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment of climate change science, which has found that warming of the climate is unequivocal, the human influence is clear and physical impacts are unavoidable.
At some point every conspiracy theory runs up againt the difficulties of motive and practicality.
The motive for the alleged fabrication of the “carbon fairy myth” is elusive at best. You must ask yourself why a company with much to face in the transition to a carbon-neutral economy feels compelled to publicly support the reasoning behind it. Similar statements may be found on the websites of virtually every important mining company globally.
The practicality of fabricating this myth is similarly difficult to explain. The single most credible argument that NASA did indeed land on the moon is that no one involved in the production of the fake - none of thousands - has ever leaked or blown the whistle. The idea that an even larger workforce is dedicated to enriching Al Gore by manipulating the world economy is even more preposterous.
The risk is not worth taking.
