Standing Room Only For New Climate Documentary

A Climate Conversation gets standing ovations at its sold-out screening

Several hundred Front Rangers packed Rockleys Event Center in Lakewood on Thursday night to watch a sneak preview of A Climate Conversation, the new documentary from fifth-generation Coloradan geophysicist Walter Johnson and Denver-based filmmaker Colton Moyer.

Attendees enjoyed a social hour before the screening and a panel conversation featuring all the scientists and subject matter experts who appeared in the film. The film and the panel received standing ovations, and it was clear that people were hungry for an approach to climate change that avoids rhetoric in favor of the scientific method.

A Climate Conversation is the brainchild of Johnson, who self-funded the film with money from his retirement account. “Something told me I just had to make a film. No one reads books about climate change, but people need to know the real facts,” said Johnson at the event. Johnson got support from The Heartland Institute, a national non-profit research organization whose mission is to discover, develop and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems.

The promoters of the firm made it clear that the film was not targeted at either extreme of the climate debate, but instead seeks to promote a consensus based on shared values of

environmentalism and humanitarian compassion. It was clear from the size and enthusiasm of the crowd that this type of approach is long overdue.

A Climate Conversation will make its worldwide debut on Newsmax on Sunday, October 15th at 7 p.m. MST.

I decided in 2008 that it was time to start figuring what global warming was all about. At the time Mann et al's "hockey stick" had gotten widespread coverage. It didn't take long to realize that it didn't stand up to scrutiny and worse, that the scientific method was falling by the wayside. Science is not served by consensus - the better scientists are skeptical folk, the best are skeptical of their own work. On the other hand, the skepticism can flow out of control - the acrimony over continental drift was resolved with plate tectonics, the resistance to the near heretical claim that peptic ulcers were caused by the bacterium H. pylori, and others show a side of science that h…


I am looking forward to this film being released! Nick
