Digital graveyard

Project Genie is a crudely full-frontal anthropogenic climate change website aimed at schools, parents and particularly children.

However, although the website is still hosted, it seems to be defunct with no obvious evidence of recent activity. Maybe it has been left as some kind of digital snare for the unwary, but the last press release was July 7th 2010 and the last update I can find related to the site is a Facebook entry for September 17th 2010.

I have no idea why the site seems to have been abandoned like a digital Mary Celeste, but it started me thinking about the demise of climate change generally. The latest activity associated with Project Genie seems to have occurred a couple of weeks before the appalling 10:10 video which had to be withdrawn in such a hurry when the dimwits behind it were prodded into a kind of secondhand moral survival mode. Whether the two events are connected I have no idea, but it set me wondering if some kind of turning point is occurring, albeit slowly.

The alarmist "science" of CO2 induced climate change has pretty much run its course. It's washed up and reputable scientists with their eyes on the ball don't bother to defend it. How it will pan out I've no idea, but the propaganda has been so pervasive that some people will believe it for the rest of their lives.

This is one of the pitiful consequences of intensive propaganda. People become conditioned into unquestioning belief and some may become very strongly and even permanently conditioned - particularly children.

Funding ran out? Kids found out about Santa Claus?

What is important is to get the large and plump bung of public funding to create the site. What happens after that is irrelevant, unless there is a nice ongoing income stream to 'maintain' it

JH - it may be publicly funded, but I'm not sure. There is a DEFRA link of some kind.

Chuckles - I agree - see above.

IPJ - thanks for the info. It certainly has the feel of a site with professional graphics.
