Barry's Response - A little fun, even with a serious subject, never hurt anyone. Here's another.
A Note on Propaganda
Some blame this whole global warming propaganda
thing on Wikipedia. The open wiki ("what I know is...") format, in its original inception, allowed anybody with an internet connection to post content, under the guise that they knew something valuable about the subject. It would be then retained and expanded on. Now there is so much volunteer content that the editors at Wikipedia can pick and choose (through moderation and consensus) the content and publish better quality than before.
This open format, in the past, has allowed various opinions to collect on controversial subjects. Global warming included. It appears that people offering knowledge of this sort now need to be a part of some exclusive club to have their content displayed online these days. And that has of people complaining.
Personally I don't think it ever was Wikipedia's mandate to be anybody's soapbox, rather, it exists as a free online research and reference tool, with credible information for anybody who knows how to find it. It presents scientific and historical data about GlobalWarming as objectively as possible and the staff put in a great deal of effort to keep it that way.
They try their best to keep meaningless propaganda (this drawing above could be an example) in its place (i.e., not associated with credible information). It's not perfect, but they're working on it.Search
