Sadly typical of all media that they will enthusiastically air something that is deliberately controversial or provocative, just to boost ratings! "Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story".

Actually, it think it is oxymoronic for the ABC to bestow the appellation "documentary" to a stitch-up job. An example of the program's misleading presentation is provided at http:// details/2007/07/13/1183833724424.html .

The program claimed that changes in solar activity were the reason why the climate was changing. However, the "evidence" it provided was a graph comparing temperatures to sunspot activity, which happened to end at 1980. Given that sunspot activity has declined since 1980 while many of the hottest years on record have occurred since that date, it is obvious that it is not the cause of the climate change we are experiencing, a point that the program conveniently ignores.

That the ABC enthusiastically promoted the program says something about what is going on at the ABC.

This is being shown on ABC TV at 8.30pm tonight (both 1 and 2 at the same time, oddly). Replayed Saturday night on ABC 2

There is a panel discussion after the movie, with discussion moving to the ABC website thereafter.

Should be rather interesting viewing.
