This is a Documentary by Jeff Gibbs and Michael Moore, available for free on YouTube (at least for a while). The movie spends a lot of it's time debunking Green Energy claims: showing how they aren't green at all: neither carbon neutral, renewable, nor sustainable... they're just scams to enrich big business and big government. Gosh, the informed have been saying that since the 1970's, when even the far left is waking up to reality, well, that's something. Of course it's by Marxists and for Marxist -- so their agenda is that the problem is any civilization and humanity (and overpopulation) and the whole planet is doomed... with the open ended point that we likely need central authorities that can cull/control us, for our own good. But if you ignore that premise, it's one of the least dirty-trick ridden of Moore's films, and it has a fair amount of useful information, so it is hated by the far left. Never thought I'd say that about a Michael Moore film.


It was an easy 80 minutes to watch, and most of it wasn't laden with disinformation or half truths. It just points out things like the evil Koch brothers are actually make a lot off of Solar Power (so blaming Koch and going solar is a bit ironic). And other inconvenient truths about EV's, Solar, Wind, but especially biomass.

Of course those who've studied know that their entire lifecycle costs are far more than they're being sold as, and they never deliver on their promises, and they can't replace Fossil Fuels and instead need Fossil Fuel plants to back them up (but the left always fails to add those costs into their equations). And while you can grow more trees or whatever to burn as fuel -- that takes time and space too. These truths, as all truths, are too much for the far-left -- so they hated the film, calling it and Moore dirty names.

It got a 67/78 reviewer/viewer score on Rotten Tomatoes. Basically, many of the snowflakes are angry because their pet cause is being trashes as the sanctimonious delusions that they are. So I liked the film. It's not particular good as a documentary... but it's not particularly bad. And the least dishonest of the Moore films to date -- though like all of them, he never gets around to offering good hard data on the balances and tradeoffs -- just a lot of anecdotes to show that it isn't what it's sold as. But for me, that truth makes it worth the price of admission.
