Remember that "Big News" CFACT promised? Well, they've delivered! They've announced a new documentary film project titled "Climate Hustle."

Not content to tap their usual funders for money to produce a documentary with the tagline "The global warming shakedown," Morano and friends are crowdsourcing this project. They've started with $12,241 of their $50,000 goal, apparently learning the lesson of their last failed video project which sought $130,000 and only raised $56,769. However, they are hoping to raise an additional $200,000 for marketing, distribution and screenings.

Soliciting donations from individuals for a project about how climate change is a "hustle" "scam" and "shakedown?" Pretty ironic for a group aimed at protecting corporate interests.

Don'tcha think?

CFACT, Alanis Morissette would like a word with you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    all are better words than "change," because change is what the Cons don't get.
    The "seeing is believing" crowd cannot conceive of and certainly not believe anything they can't see. Change is not to be seen; ditto for transformation. The results of change can be seen, but not the process involved.
    Some people just don't get process. It may have something to do with the sense of time, which some people definitely don't have. If we don't notice this lack, it's probably because it is so wide-spread that we've developed all sorts of institutions to compensate.
    Consider, for example, that our great western religions all have a calendar component and a mechanism for keeping track of the hours of the day. Nowadays, instead of the factory whistle, computers and cell phones keep people on time. Before that it was TV programs and the radio.
    Time is of the essence, if a community wants to achieve social goals -- people have got to be working together at the same time. We can schedule projects for the night people, but randomly assigning people to shifts has proved not to be very effective. People who have no sense of time have to be kept on track by supervisory personnel.
