I strongly advise you to watch this film. It is a brutal indictment of the environmental movement as organizations run by cynics taking advantage of useful idiots and financed by corporate billions. It illustrates, with painstaking accuracy, the false promise of “green energy,” – wind, solar, biomass.
It is also an advertisement for the Voluntary Human Extinction movement. Quotes from speakers starting at about 46 minutes in:
There are too many human beings using too much, too fast.
As a global community we really have got to start dealing with the issue of population.
Population growth continues to be, not the elephant, but the herd of elephants in the room. We have to have our abilities to consume reined in, because we’re not good at reigning them in if there are seemingly unrestrained resources.
Just who is going to do the reining in? And how?
The filmmaker has a valid point – there are real problems that need to be addressed, and the environmental movement is just a “feel-good” effort that is in fact counterproductive. There is little to no incentive to actually address the problems, because no one wants to live like the Amish except the Amish, and I’m not certain about them.
But I did notice that the only comment made about nuclear energy was an aside jab at General Electric, which he notes makes both nuclear power plants and wind turbines.
Seriously, watch it. It’s worth your time. Meanwhile, I have to see my psychologist about my endorsement of a Michael Moore-backed documentary.
UPDATE: 5/26/20 – “Planet of the Humans” has been yanked. One of the short sequences in the film was used without the permission of the creator of it, and he filed a Copyright takedown claim. Michael Moore is getting hammered by the Left for being RIGHT WING.
