An outstanding film will be playing Monday night in theaters across the country, but in most places for one night only. It’s called “Climate Hustle,” and it’s about just that: how the federal government, a corrupt media and government-funded scientists, with the added help of Hollywood, have made global warming into a new religion, called “climate change,” which attempts to convince us that man’s use of carbon-based products is leading us to the brink of extinction. Or as they call it, “settled science.” President Obama said last year at a commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy, “I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country.”
Those familiar with our work at Accuracy in Media know that we have long been skeptics of the prevailing view that man is largely responsible for causing the earth’s temperature to rise, and that we can work with other nations, including China and India, and the United Nations, to slow down the supposed warming of the planet.
On April 14th I attended the premiere of the new movie, “Climate Hustle,” on Capitol Hill. It is playing on Monday, May 2, at many theaters across the country. We have posted Paul Driessen’s outstanding review of the film as a guest column on our site. The film uses humor, mockery, and most impressively, interviews with numerous climate scientists who used to believe in anthropogenic (i.e., caused by humans) global warming, but have now become openly skeptical. While the left and the media try to convince us that the only scientists who dissent on this issue are those receiving money from the energy industry, the fact is that it is much more lucrative to take government grants to create computer models that make the case for the global warming alarmists.
I urge you to click on this link to find out where you can see the movie in your area. I am friends with the host and narrator of this great new documentary, Marc Morano, and have worked with him on other shows in the past. He runs the website, Climate Depot, which is an excellent, ongoing source of information on this incredibly important subject.
