Climate Change: Al Gore's Penguin Army


Spoofs of Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth are finding their way to many sites on the web and some of them are really quite enjoyable. You Tube features one of the best examples, called "Al Gore's Penguin Army" posted by toutsmith

You have to see it to believe it! See it at You Tube.

That wasn't exactly put together by a random user, that's a PR piece created by the DCI Group (a lobbying firm out of Washington D.C. that gets funding from ExxonMobil).

As a chemical engineer who actually knows the science, and has done many of the calculations myself, it's time to get to work on solving the problem.

You are such a poser. The fact that you linked to this back on June 9 proves you are a paid shill.

Hmmm. As it turns out, it seems likely that the penguin army video was paid for by Exxon. Gee, it's not like *they'd* have a vested interest in discrediting Gore, or anything.

You guys are getting desperate when you have to make phony "grassroots" videos:

Funny -- but it DOES appear to be part of a PR campaign by the oil companies through a Washington lobbying firm:
Where did that video spoofing Gore's film come from? (Post-Gazette).

Not really funny at all. The sad part is that this cartoon was made by a advertising/lobby firm of Exxon, masquerading as some regular joe in a feable attempt to marginalize the global warming movement.

Lighten up, guys. No matter who made it, it's a funny little piece...

We're lost if we can't have a sense of humor. And, JJ, "Your Mom is Hot!"

Aside from other criticisms, this video’s (mis)use of the Linux “Tux the Penguin” mascot falls somewhere between rudeness and open copyright infringement.

I even made a video (without corporate support) saying so: “Al Gore’s Penguin Army” Video Misuses Linux Mascot.
