It takes only 1 minute and 38 seconds for a YouTube video titled "Greenpeace leader admits Arctic ice exaggeration" to prove the dubiousness of global warming alarmists' credibility and the reprehensibility of their tactics.
The clip, from the BBC's "HARDtalk," shows reporter Stephen Sackur mentioning that the massive Greenland ice sheet has survived much warmer periods in the past. That forces Gerd Leipold, retiring head of Greenpeace, to admit that his organization's claim that the Arctic will be ice-free by 2030 is mistaken -- and that Greenpeace twists the truth to further its eco-wacko agenda.
And when Mr. Leipold defends Greenpeace releasing alarming but inaccurate information as "emotionalizing issues" to bend public opinion, Mr. Sackur replies, "You call it emotionalizing. Others would call it scare tactics."
Later in the interview, though not part of the YouTube clip, Leipold calls for suppressing global economic growth to avert human-caused climate disaster. That confirms his real agenda: social engineering, not scientific truth.
Kudos to the BBC and Sackur for bringing low one of the high priests of the disingenuous orthodoxy that dishonestly blames mankind for warming. If more media outlets showed the same skepticism and backbone, the entire priesthood to which Leipold belongs would be defrocked.
