What is it?

In two days time, millions of people all over the world are expected to unite as one global community in the World Wildlife Fund’s effort to inspire people to take action on climate change.

WWF is asking everyone to take part in Earth Hour on March 29th between 8-9pm by switching off all lights.

Scepticism

However, despite so many people coming together for a seemingly worthy cause, there are still some sceptics that question whether fighting global warming is really necessary or if global warming even exists at all.

Panagiotis Chatzistamoulis from Greece is a regular contributer to a Facebook group, Global Warming Is Junk Science, and feels the same way he did about Americans who supported the war against Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction.

“They were conned. They thought they were doing the right thing.”

JunkScience.com is a website that claims to provide, “The Real ‘Inconvenient Truth’ ” in response to Al Gore’s documentary which highlighted the issue of global warming to the world.

The website suggests that there are “basic misconceptions” of the Earth and goes on to explain the ‘facts’.
