I’m thinking of hiring the same security firm Mark “I’m No Fan Of Guns Unless They’re Used To Protect Me” Zuckerberg. Just like he, I’ll be a big star and in need to protection to keep the adoring throngs at bay.
For the delicious news is that I will become a bona fide Movie Star tonight. At 7 PM (in every time zone). In a theatre near you. Ladies and gentlemen, or reasonable facsimiles thereof, I bring you…
Scorching temperatures. Melting ice caps. Killer hurricanes and tornadoes. Disappearing polar bears. The end of civilization as we know it! Are emissions from our cars, factories, and farms causing catastrophic climate change? Is there a genuine scientific consensus? Or is man-made “global warming” an overheated environmental con job being used to push for increased government regulations and a new “Green” energy agenda?…
CLIMATE HUSTLE, hosted by award-winning investigative journalist Marc Morano, reveals the history of climate scares including global cooling; debunks outrageous claims about temperatures, extreme weather, and the so-called “consensus;” exposes the increasingly shrill calls to “act immediately before it’s too late,” and in perhaps the film’s most important section, profiles key scientists who used to believe in climate alarm but have since converted to skepticism.
Bill Nye Warns Film is ‘Not in Our National Interest’ There may be no better reason to see it than that.
Thomas Richard at Examiner.com has seen the movie and says “Climate Hustle is a smart, energetic global warming documentary.” “…eloquent and viciously clever.”
The film includes a canyon full of frightening climate change statements from the world’s biggest media tycoons, supersized politicians, and vaunted personalities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo. From rising seas to extreme weather events to melting ice sheets to famine and disease, an all-too-familiar bombardment of alarming newscasts gets compressed into a few minutes. You’ve heard the debate is over, the science is settled, and the time to act is now. But are all those things really true? Are you being hustled?
Which reminds me: don’t miss this podcast, which has a news clip from 1971 in which an official from the National Science Foundation said mankind was causing global cooling.
Our friend Paul Driessen said (via email; I don’t have a link):
I saw Climate Hustle April 14, at its U.S. premiere on Capitol Hill in Washington. The film is informative and entertaining, pointed and humorous. As meteorologist Anthony Watts says, it is wickedly effective in its using slapstick humor and the words and deeds of climate alarmists to make you laugh at them.
Marita Noon also saw the movie: “On Climate, We’re Manipulated By Sleight Of Hand.”
Repeatedly throughout the past couple of decades, we’ve been pummeled with dire predictions and told “time is short.” In 1989, the UN predicted “Global warming would destroy entire nations by 2000.” In 2007, we were told: “Scientists believe we have less than ten years to bring emissions under control to prevent a catastrophe.” In 2008, Britain’s Prince Charles said we only had 100 months left to solve the problem. Gore, in 2009, said: “We have to do it this year.” Yet, as the film demonstrates, scientists don’t want to talk about their failed predictions…
Meanwhile, scientists who don’t agree with the “leaders” are accused, by the likes of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., of “treason.” He wants them “in jail.”
Yes, as Climate Hustle makes clear, there are dissenting scientists—but they are marginalized, even called “kooks.” If they speak out, they are insulted, ignored, ridiculed, ostracized, called heretics, hurt professionally, and even terminated for divergent views. This is not the scientific method.
Well, kooks we may be, but we’re at least well dressed. I hope viewers like as much as I do the tie I wore in the film. There is a clear dichotomy of preference for that tie. Many sad people can’t see its beauty.
Yes, I’d rather talk about men’s fashion than global cooling. I mean global warming. That we can’t get actual scientists to realize thirty years of busted forecasts means their theory is wrong is too depressing to contemplate, and if I never ever say another word on this stupid subject it will be too soon (a cliche, but an appropriate one).
I haven’t seen the movie yet, and won’t tonight, either, unfortunately, because I’m in San Francisco, and San Francisco is too enlightened to allow a showing. I’ll rely on you, dear reader, to watch for me. Report back here of your awe and wonder.
Incidentally, I’m in San Francisco. If there are any earthquakes, you’ll know why. If anybody out there wants a talk, seminar, or whatnot, this is the time to ask. Use the Contact Page.
Update Turns out I am going. I’ll be at the Pleasant Hill Century 16 tonight (just north of Walnut Creek). I was invited by a generous reader, who also promises burgers and beers at the Fuddruckers which is apparently near the theater.
Update Movie was a great success. About 200 people in the audience in Pleasant Hill, which I find remarkable. The popcorn flowed; bonhomie overflowed. Spontaneous applause at the end. Lot of folks stuck around to chat afterwards. Even better, I got to meet three regular readers! I didn’t ask permission to name them, so I can’t (they may not want to admit it). But heartfelt thanks to them for making the trek. It was deeply appreciated.
