A remarkably revealing documentary on the rise of the RE movement and the failure of the dream. Support your prejudices and watch when you have a bit over an hour to spare. All the bad guys are here and they end up looking silly.
You may not need to watch it but do persuade your green friends and relations to do so, they probably admire Michael Moore on the basis of his politics.
Michael Moore presents Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America.
This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids.
No amount of batteries are going to save us, warns director Jeff Gibbs (lifelong environmentalist and co-producer of “Fahrenheit 9/11” and “Bowling for Columbine”).
This urgent, must-see movie, a full-frontal assault on our sacred cows, is guaranteed to generate anger, debate, and, hopefully, a willingness to see our survival in a new way—before it’s too late.
Note sure what the new way is, only up to 22 mins. OK half way through it gets to be about too many people and at 1.11 it gets the evil of capitalism. Someone explain the difference between crony capitalism and the markets operating under the rule of law with minimum state intervention at the beck and call of special interests.
Michael Shellenberger’s commentary. A handy summary if you are busy.
