Last Saturday, documentary filmmaker and activist Michael Moore uploaded a documentary called Planet of the Humans to his YouTube channel for public viewing. The one hour, forty minute environmental feature was written and directed by Jeff Gibbs, with Gibbs and Ozzie Zehner producing. Michael Moore was the executive producer. Moore interviewed Gibbs and Zehner on his April 22nd Rumble podcast - a very interesting episode to listen to while delivering the mail. :wink:

It's quite a profound documentary worth viewing.

The central thesis of the film is the claim that various people and organizations in the United States claiming to promote Green energy have actually been promoting biomass energy, largely meaning burning trees instead of fossil fuels, which is neither carbon neutral, renewable, nor sustainable. The film also claim that wind power and solar power don't fare much better than biomass once all their inputs from fossil fuels are taken into account. Jeff Gibbs has said that the film is designed to prompt discussion and debate beyond the narrow issue of climate change and look at the overall human impact on the environment, including issues such as the contemporary extinction crisis in which half of all wildlife has disappeared in the last 40 years, and whether green technology can solve these issues.

If you're going to post that it's best also to have the alternative view


Planet of the Humans deceives viewers about clean energy and climate activists.

I was expecting someone to post such a comment, which is why I didn't bother to do it myself. :wink:

I'm usually a fan of his but this seems poorly researched and half-assed.

There's probably a fair chance of a lot of people using their cars and not public transport when the lockdown ends, as the 2m rule won't be viable on public transport

I think there may also be a lot more people working from home and a lot more who'll be shopping from home which will probably offset it, along with the millions who unfortunately won't have a job at all.
