    CLIMATE CROCK CHALLENGED

    Climate Crock Anthony Watts Scrubs YouTube Video
    Kevin Grandia, July 27, 2009 (DeSmogBlog)

    “…A video called "Climate Crock of the Week" about head-in-the-sand global warming denier Anthony Watts was posted last week on YouTube by Peter Sinclair who has been running the "Climate Crock" series for quite sometime now.

    “The video was making the blogosphere rounds, getting a lot of comments on YouTube and on… DeSmogBlog as well as Huffington. And then "poof" this happened:

    “The video was removed after Watts complained under YouTube's Copyright Infringement guidelines. This has become known as a DMCA Takedown - with the DMCA being the US copyright law used to criminalize anyone infringing and/or circumventing copyrighted works.”


    All of Peter Sinclair's "Climate Crocks" have appeared as NewEnergyNews Saturday videos. This is the one that got Peter singled out for being a truth-teller. Check back Saturday for a short retrospective. (Video from greenman3610 and k21desmog via YouTube.

    “Before I posted Sinclair's youtube video, as I normally do with any YouTube video I post, I vetted it from a DMCA point of view and, quite frankly I don't know what part of the video Watts would have a problem with. There's nothing I saw in the video that appears to break any copyright as it relates to Watts…

    “Now maybe he took issue with the short (credited) clip at the beginning from Will Ferrell's Anchorman movie.... but I think this is more about a video that thoroughly shreds Watts and his argument that the world is wrong about climate change and he is right…”
