    Misguided Michael Moore Film Spotlighted

    Climate experts call for 'dangerous' Michael Moore film to be taken down; Planet of the Humans, which takes aim at the green movement, is ‘full of misinformation’, says one online library

    Oliver Milman, 28 April 2020 (UK Guardian)

    A new Michael Moore-produced documentary that takes aim at the supposed hypocrisy of the green movement is “dangerous, misleading and destructive” and should be removed from public viewing, according to an assortment of climate scientists and environmental campaigners….[The film, Planet of the Humans,] argues that electric cars and solar energy are unreliable and rely upon fossil fuels to function. It also attacks figures including Al Gore for bolstering corporations that push flawed technologies over real solutions to the climate crisis…[A letter by various scientists and activists, attacks it] for making false claims about renewable energy. Planet of the Humans “trades in debunked fossil fuel industry talking points” that question the affordability and reliability of solar and wind energy, the letter states, pointing out that these alternatives are now cheaper to run than fossil fuels such as coal…

    …[Climate scientist Michael Mann] said the film includes “various distortions, half-truths and lies”…The film’s makers did not respond…[The technologies used for wind and solar energy have] improved markedly in recent years, while the costs have plummeted. While electric cars often require fossil fuel-generated energy to produce them and provide the electricity to fuel them, research has shown they still emit less greenhouse gas and air pollutants over their lifetime than a standard petrol or diesel car…Generating all power from renewables will take significant upgrades of grid infrastructure and storage but several researchers have declared the goal feasible…Scientists say the world must reach net zero emissions by 2050…” click here for more
