Is this the final generation of Ebells?

Humanity could very well be in hell, where hell is defined as truth realized too late -- E. O. Wilson
ABC news broadcast the two hour special
Earth2100: Is this the Final Century of Our Civilization?.
The note from the producer says:
The scenarios in Earth 2100 are not a prediction of what will happen but rather a warning about what might happen. They are based on the work of some of the world's top scientists and experts, as well as peer-reviewed articles from publications around the world. These notes are just a glimpse of the wide and diverse sources used to develop this program.

It is important to add that not all of the scientists we interviewed would agree with each specific scenario we present, or with our exact time frame. For example, some experts think that the more catastrophic events we depict would be unlikely to happen before the middle of the 22nd century, while others, like Jared Diamond, think that they could happen much sooner.

Though there is some disagreement about the specifics, there is widespread agreement among the 50-plus experts we spoke to in the course of our 18 months working on this show that if we do not change course in the near future, the collapse of our civilization is a real possibility.
It is towards this collapse that Myron Ebell works night and day to drive us. He does it by lying and suppressing the facts while being paid by fossil fuel companies run by people who do not care if we all die.

The CEI's latest video offering is pretty stupid. It's always Al Gore, isn't it? The text ends with:
There is no global warming crisis.
The earth hasn't warmed for a decade.
But politicians are using this so-called crisis as an excuse to raise taxes, choke our economy and control our lives.
Don't let them push us into a new "1984".

I have no idea what that thing they've badly edited onto her white T-shirt is. I thought it was a penguin. The original had some kind of Mac symbol:

The Clinton one had an Obama symbol:

That's enough of that. It's not a game. This pissing about you do has miserable consequences. You ought to know that.
