Sam’s comment was that the movie was somewhat restrained. It could have been more critical of the global alarmist movement than it was. All three of us agreed that a better title might have been Evil and Wrong . . .
The movie started out condemning Rachel Carson (author of Silent Spring) and all those who placed such great effort to eliminate the malaria carrying mosquito using DDT at the expense of millions of lives across the world. The movie told of the devastation in Uganda, where many children suffered and died needlessly.
The movie addressed the lame argument that carbon dioxide is a pollutant, when, in fact, it is a very basic element necessary to sustain life. The contention of radical environmentalists like Al Gore is that the very air humans breathe out is pollution. That is insanity. Humans are made out, by the environmentalists, to be the cause of all that is wrong in the world, when much of what is wrong is natural phenomena.
One interesting highlight for me was the founder of Greenpeace, Patrick Moore, who seemed to make sense and recognized the error of the ways of extremist environmentalism and its agenda today.
The movie was a pro-human documentary pointing out many of the flaws and inconsistencies of the radical environmentalism and its devastating affect on human beings and industry.
The coal business, even as it has done much to clean up real pollutants, is still being targeted by extremists and alarmists such as Al Gore because of carbon dioxide. Mr. Gore would like to see an end to the coal industry and a move to so-called alternative energies even at the cost of human suffering and economic loss. That is insanity.
One moving portion of the movie was the interjection of the thoughts of an average American woman, mother and wife, Tiffany, living in Indiana and benefiting from the Coal industry who tells the story of why the coal industry should be supported rather than destroyed. The movie even follows her to the home of Al Gore in Tennessee to deliver a letter outlining her thoughts and concerns. She had tried to make an appointment to visit with him personally, but without avail.
My friends Sam and T.D. enjoyed the movie and enjoyed the brisk fall air as we inhaled and exhaled air, which the environmentalists one day hope to cap . . . or is that decapitate?
