"The Great Global Warming Swindle" is a British documentary that claims the science of anthropogenic global warming is flawed. The creators of the documentary illustrate the "weakness of the case for man-made global warming, and the quantity and quality of the evidence which flatly contradicts it."

Produced by Martin Durkin, the documentary premiered on British television in March 2007 and its premise that anthropogenic global warming is the "biggest scam of modern times" generated both praise and criticism by the media and scientific community.

According to an article in The Washington Times written just before the documentary's release, Martin Durkin "is at odds with scientific opinion as outlined in a United Nations report in February, which blames mankind for global warming." However, the article also reports that "Channel 4 says that the program features 'an impressive roll-call of experts,' including nine professors, who are experts in climatology, oceanography, meteorology, biogeography, and paleoclimatology."

Here are five key points made in "The Great Global Warming Swindle":

1. Any illusion of a scientific consensus on anthropogenic global warming is due to "a multibillion-dollar worldwide industry: created by fanatically anti-industrial environmentalists; supported by scientists peddling scare stories to chase funding; and propped up by complicit politicians and the media."

2. In relation to the earth's temperature records. "In the last decade, there has been no clear warming trend … In the last century, much of the warming occurred prior to 1940, when human emissions of CO2 were relatively small compared to today."

3. Global warming theory is based on the idea that an increase in greenhouse gases is causing the Earth's temperature to increase. According to "The Great Global Warming Swindle," "There is no evidence that CO2 has ever ‘driven’ the climate in the past, nor is there any compelling evidence that it is doing so now."

4. Human activity is not the cause of global warming. An increase in temperature is the result of "changes in radiation from the sun."

5. According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, "The Great Global Warming Swindle" purports that global warming "has become a story of huge political significance; environmental activists using scare tactics to further their cause; scientists adding credence to secure billions of dollars in research money; politicians after headlines and a media happy to play along. No one dares speak against it for risk of being unpopular, losing funds, and jeopardizing careers."
