Global Warming: Doomsday Called Off is a CBC Newsworld video presentation.
Here's what they said about it, back in 2005 when it was presented:
DOOMSDAY CALLED OFF
Sunday November 27, 2005 at 7pm ET on CBC Newsworld
In this eye-opening documentary viewers will discover how the most respected researchers from all over the world explode the doom and gloom of global warming.
Humans stand accused of having set off a global climate catastrophe by increasing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
The prophecy of doom is clear and media pass on the message uncritically.
Now serious criticism has arisen from a number of heavyweight independent scientists. They argue that most of the climatic change we have seen is due to natural variations.
They also state that if CO 2 is to play a role at all -it will be minuscule and not catastrophic!
This story presents a series of unbiased scientists as our witnesses.
We will hear their eloquent criticism of the IPCC conclusions illustrated by coverage of their research work.

How this slipped past the CBC screening process, I can't imagine. It certainly doesn't follow the official script for global warming alarmism.
Some of the points I take from the video:
1. Rio vs. Today: The first climate conference was in Rio in 1991. It concluded that man was responsible for global warming; Today we realize that most of the warming that Rio accused man of in causing in fact occurred as the result of natural processes; only the warming of the last 30 years is currently attributed to man.
2. Climate is incredibly complex; climate simulators must necessarily also be incredibly complex, however, since climate is imperfectly understood, the resulting climate models cannot be demonstrably accurate; none agrees with the others; yet it is these models that are being used to attempt to shape the policies and behaviours of sovereign nations.
3. It appears that Earth's climate has self-correcting mechanisms built into it that work to preserve a rough equilibrium. For example, in a speech Bill Clinton voiced scientists warnings that archipelegos like the Maldives will disappear under rising sea levels. However, the sea levels of the Maldives may in fact have been receding. More importantly, if the earth continues to warm, this will result in increased water evaporation. This should result in more water being deposited at the poles as snow, thus preventing catastrophic sea level changes.
4. Satellites and balloons are two diverse ways of actually measuring temperature. These two diverse methods both give the same results: they indicate that the mass of the atmosphere is warming at a slow, undramatic rate unlike what is found in the climate models. This actual observational data is not greeted well by most in scientific community - it doesn't fit their picture of the world.
