Michael Moore grows up



Michael Moore finally grew up. He now realizes Captain Planet was just a front man for green energy boondoggles paid for by taxpayers.

The Associated Press reported, "What if alternative energy isn’t all it’s cracked up to be? 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. It premiered last week at his Traverse City Film Festival.

"The film, which does not yet have distribution, is a low-budget but piercing examination of what the filmmakers say are the false promises of the environmental movement and why we’re still “addicted” to fossil fuels.

"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."

The Sierra Club, as readers may recall, "received over $26 million from natural-gas giant Chesapeake Energy Corp. between 2007 and 2010 to help the group’s campaign against coal-fired power plants."

Moore told the AP, "We all want to feel good about something like the electric car, but in the back of your head somewhere you’ve thought, Yeah, but where is the electricity coming from? And it’s like, I don’t want to think about that, I’m glad we have electric cars."

He also told the AP, "I like so many people in the film and I’m one of those people who wanted to believe all of these years that that was the right path."

Gibbs made the film. He produced Moore’s Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11 films.

Gibbs told the AP, "It turned out the wake up call was about our own side.

"It was kind of crushing to discover that the things I believed in weren’t real, first of all, and then to discover not only are the solar panels and wind turbines not going to save us … but (also) that there is this whole dark side of the corporate money … It dawned on me that these technologies were just another profit center."

Duh.

  1. Want to go all electric?

    Then go all in on nuclear. They can be very safe, hello, US Navy has done this on small scale safely for a long, long time.

    Heck, we even have a vast mountain to store the waste.

    But, this is and has never been about saving the planet.

    Well, for some, it is, by allowing world economies to fall and subjecting millions upon millions in a fate that would mean a hard, short life.

  2. solar panels are fine for charging batteries in an RV or small cabin.

    but if you want to weld something it's time to fire up a good generator.

    truth be told, the green nude eel is gilligans island. which is fine on a studio back lot tropical island. not in the real world.

    2. Yea who have little faith. My entire life was spent in the energy industry. You loud mouths always gotta bi××h slap somebody. The ones who make tons of mistakes and try, are the ones who succeed and die paupers, because of the crooks and liars find a way to meter it. The dude who straps a meter on the SUNS ass, will be the guy that...whoops or woman, who impresses me. Let's get to work and figure. We are the United F##kin States of America By GOD. Let's figure it all out. We got to quit beating the sh#t ought each other, or we will never get there. Snap to it Jack and Jill. I think I can.

  3. I realize the Elites would have no problem, but wondered how my furnace would work in the winter months. Maybe we would be issued a 15-watt room heater.

  5. When Gore was embarrassed by someone at an Aspen seminar asking for proof of his con, he responded "Would you deny me the chance to make a living?" There was no reply.
    Moore may realize he can't make a living doing this anymore or if he continues to try he is only making his cultural enemies rich.

    1. Remember Gore went back to school for theology in grad school before going into law. At least he recycled the idea of selling indulgences.

    2. At least Moore woke, to a small extent. I'm sure there are many other things on which he needs to have an epiphany. We'll have to wait and see if he really does grow up.

  6. Moore consoles himself by polishing off 231 whoppers and drank a coke with a plastic straw.

    1. Watch out for those alternate straws. Excessive virtue signalling could poke an eye out: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/07/08/reusable-straws-safety-warning-issued-coroner-woman-dies-metal/

    2. How do you clean those reusable straws? All you can do is flush them. Another potential bacteria nightmare

  8. This is pretty amazing but Moore was the only Leftist who saw the Trump wave coming and warned his tribe about it. That was amazing too, since these are people that thrive on lies, fantasies and platitudes
