James Cameron Backs Out of Climate Change Debate After Bizarre Requests

Posted: August 25th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
James Cameron Backs Out of Climate Change Debate After Bizarre RequestsSubmit Comment
In March, "Avatar" director James Cameron challenged global warming skeptics to a public debate, stating: "I want to call those deniers out into the street at high noon and shoot it out with those boneheads."

He challenged Andrew Breitbart, Climate Depot's Marc Morano and filmmaker Ann McElhinney of "Not Evil Just Wrong." All three agreed to the debate, which was scheduled to take place at the conclusion of the AREDAY conference in Aspen on August 22nd.

To arm himself with knowledge, Cameron said he would bring two scientists and the 90-minute debate would be streamed live on the internet for everyone to watch. He was also hoping that the event would attract lots of media coverage. He even wanted FoxNews there.

But as soon as everything was organized, Cameron began changing the rules. First, he wanted to change his team. Then he wanted the format to be changed from a debate to a roundtable discussion. Then he wanted to ban the opposing side's cameras. Then he wanted to completely get rid of all cameras, stating that audio should only be recorded.

Breitbart, Morano and McElhinney agreed to all the unexpected changes, but Cameron kept going. He next said that he wanted all media to be banned and to make the roundtable open only to those attending the conference. He then decided against streaming the discussion on the internet and then concluded with a rule that no recording of any kind would be allowed.

The three men once again agreed. And finally, on the day before the event, Cameron withdrew, claiming that he no longer wanted to take part. According to Cameron's spokesman, the director did not want to participate because "Morano is not at James Cameron's level to debate. Cameron should be debating someone who is similar to his stature in our society."

Despite canceling the debate, Cameron still went to the conference where he called climate skeptics "swine."

f*cked himself there didnt he? Sounds chicken to me. I mean they agreed to all his demands which was essentially backing down a notch everytime. I think he was doing that on purpose expecting them to back down but they called his bluff and he was left with his pants down. As Woody says in Zombie Land "Its time to nut up or shut up"

Why not just use a meager $million of his money, pay for all three of them have lethal accidents - and there, it's all set the easy way.

They're really not a match for him in any way.

are you f*cking kidding me?

who does he think he is?ive been saying you're a pretty cool dude for a while now and you pull this sh*t?

there is no rank in today's society ? and when it comes down to things like climate control you sure as hell can began to say you know more because your the creator of avatar.

im sure there are college freshman who could add more to the debate then james cameron.but they are not on the same level of inlightenment as the might james cameron.

Of course he had to back out. He was too busy jerking off to the idea of "Avatar" making another couple million bucks this weekend. What a piece of sh*t. How is this *sshole the supreme authority on global warming now? How about we leave the debates to the f*cking scientists, d*ckhole? I wonder what cause he'll stand behind next weekend for a few hours? Autism awareness? Breast cancer? No, no - those will take too long also. He's very busy adding "new footage" to his gay-jungle-smurf-cat movie so he can re-release it again 3 more time before Christmas.

So basically Cameron started researching his side of the debate and didn't like what he found, and knew that he would get utterly destroyed in a debate about Global Warming.

Its simple, Cameron knows global warming is just a hoax....he knew he would get burned by those guys.

The fact the he withdrew like a chicken is simply another small proof that the media is f*cking with us.
The-BRAD writes:
on August 25th, 2010 at 12:22:11 PM

he backed out because he realized Global Warming is a sham.

f*ck him and his better than everyone f*cking else attitude

"call them out into the street at high noon & shoot it out"... then he went on to say "wait.. what do you mean global warming isn't real? BUT IT HAS TO BE!!! It's the ENTIRE plot for Avatar 2!!!! That's it! that's all I have!! I know, I'll just tell everyone I have to wait for the technology to be invented for my next movie. huh? oh, I already did that? son of a..."

That's it rich uninformed prick, make another term then demand it changed to save face.

I think he's been butt f*cking his Titanic trophies too hard and too deep that its scooped out essential brain matter for processing rational thinking.

If this story is half true, it further demonstrates he's an egotistical p*ssy-f*ck. Let's set up all these conditions hoping the other side will back down first. In the old days you would have been hanged for not coming to a showdown for which you called.

Go back to your hole and make your Avaf*cks 2 and 3.

Marc Morano is an imbecile. Cameron probably wanted to have a serious debate. Morano is pretty much incapable of using or respecting scientific data, so its kind of a moot point. I can see why Cameron did what he did. It was just going to be a worthless, sensationalist debacle no matter how articulate Cameron was.

I love how he makes some okay movie (Avatar) - Please, spare me, it's the most overrated movie. Wow, he spent 47 years on the special effects. Well, the story was nothing special. So he makes this okay movie and thinks he knows more than everyone when it comes to the environment. Shut up. You're a director. No one cares about what you have to say here.
jeffw1978 writes:

Shay quit being f*cking gay. Realize this for what it is Cameron being a p*ssy that knows nothing about the environment. He is a director not a climatologist.

In his list of demands he should've held the debate on that 100 sq mile chunk of ice that fell off Greenland a couple of weeks ago.

p*ssy sh*t for backing out though. Though, like Rabid said, it woulda just been sensationalized sh*te.
