Michael Moore-Backed Doc Tackles Green Energy’s ‘False Promises’

That’s the provocative question explored in the documentary Planet of the Humans, which is backed and promoted by filmmaker Michael Moore and directed by one of his longtime collaborators.,,, Director Jeff Gibbs takes on electric cars, solar panels, windmills, biomass, biofuel, leading environmentalist groups like the Sierra Club, and even figures from Al Gore and Van Jones, who served as Barack Obama’s special adviser for green jobs, to 350.org leader Bill McKibben, a leading environmentalist and advocate for grassroots climate change movements.,,, But when he started pulling on the thread,,,, >click to read< 19:32

One Response to Michael Moore-Backed Doc Tackles Green Energy’s ‘False Promises’

    Finally some honesty is beginning to emerge! Yes, we need to acknowledge our obsessive-compulsive energy binge. And yes, we need to get out from under the polluting and politically destructive worldwide domination of the oil companies; but turning over alternative energy decisions to the corporate shysters that more or less created the dilemma to begin with, is not the answer!

    There are available non-polluting energy options to our world leading fossil fuel consumption that need to be embraced—but are not. Attention, and therefore funding, for viable energy alternatives and changing cultural consumption norms is siphoned off through corporate marketing ploys of BS ineffective feel-good placebos, such as, I’m-doing-my-eco-duty-to save-the-planet electric cars with “smart charging stations”, and the “renewable and clean” wind farms (on vital ocean habitat) that will supply the juice for your easy-to-plug -in, and very hip, Prius and your oh so sexy and naughty 400hp Lexus Hybrid SUV weekend cruiser!

    So, thank you Michael Moore and Jeff Gibbs for having the guts to ferret out the truth about some of these “clean energy” corporate/government boondoggles. Perhaps soon we can get moving on some ideas that will actually help!
