This is what i have found in researching global warming and the environmental movement.
A good disinformation agent presents a large amount of facts with a small amount of disinformation "Bites"that biases the endpoint to his views.
If all he presented was disinformation people would seen only the disinformation and could check the information and find fault with it.
But few check all the information for facts and overlook the small bites of disinformation'
This changes the picture when taken as a whole and makes the disinformation look like fact.
If i told you that all dogs were red no one would believe me.
But if i told you that dogs were all colors some would believe me.
others would know that all colors include blue and there are no blue dogs.
This is disinformation.
Disinformation agents are not trying to convince everyone just a few.
The next thing the disinformation agent may say is that dogs are all colors but blue.
OK how you know there are no green dogs.
But a few people are not going to catch this and will believe.
This is the basis of disinformation not telling pure falsehoods.
just "bites" of misinformation.
Over time they then feed a number of these "bites" in with a lot of good information.
And over time these "bites" of disinformation add up every-time someone talks about the subject different people in the conversations will add in
the "bites" they remember. Few will talk about the "facts" everyone knows.
Just the "bites" of disinformation
Repeat disinformation long enough and more will believe it must be "facts".
Call people that don't believe the "bites" denier's and some will ignore these people even if all they present is provable "facts".
With global warming CO2 is only used to fill in for the global warmer udder dislike for anything they believe is pollution.
They believe that if they can stop anyone from say burning coal/oil because it puts out CO2 that all other pollution from coal/oil will be stopped.
This is why they claim there is no way to make power from coal/oil by sequestering the CO2.
This would stop CO2 from coal from causing global warming but not give them what they want the total end to the use of coal/oil.
Why did they pick CO2 as a element to use.
Because every fuel they don't like long before global warming puts out CO2(except nuclear power)
And every source of power they always liked long before global warming does not put out CO2.
Watch they will claim they are not against nuclear power but in the background they will do all they can to block nuclear power plants
Its funny how CO2 is so convenient for what they want.
The same thing applies to the anti gun people.
How may anti gun congress people have been caught being elites and having guns.
U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein was accused of hypocrisy when it became public information that despite her stringent anti-gun record, the Senator
maintained a Concealed Weapons permit and actively carried a .38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver for her personal safety.
these same senators put out the fake stories on GUNS sold in border states and mexico.
Sen. Feinstein also repeated the claim that 90 percent of guns seized in the Mexican drug war are from America. This claim has become a staple
of media coverage, but it's deeply misleading.
