Not Evil Just Wrong — New Film to Take on Al Gore

The new documentary Not Evil Just Wrong challenges so-called "global warming hysteria." The Irish filmmakers behind the project believe the effort to save the planet only hurts the poor, and they hope the film will discredit "alarmists" like Al Gore.

The film presents some alleged inconvenient truths that counter Al Gore. In the trailer, the Nobel Peace Prize winner is presented as a dark fearmongerer demanding that people drastically change the way they live, or that factories close and take away millions of jobs. Those in the documentary emotionally explain that such efforts destroy industry and ultimately cost people's lives.

Do you think this documentary could change your view of global warming?

To add to that corn comment, the government has in the past bought tons of crops from farmers and left it in warehouses to rot simply because they didn't want the farms to go under but there was too much food for the economy. So you can't blame ethanol on the price of food considering we have a history of sending food away to rot, changing it to ethanol makes a lot more sense then leaving it in a warehouse.

"Why did inflation go through the roof? The price of food went up because we are turning food (corn) into ethanol. Fuel prices have gone up because we have incredibly poor energy policy partly hampered by environmental regulations." Ok, I will give you that the production of ethanol drove up the price of food. I am not a fan of ethanol production in the first place because it takes 3 times the amount of energy to produce ethanol than the amount of energy from ethanol. Not very efficient or practical. However, finding new energy technology is essential to have any kind of sustainable future, so it is a necessary evil. I would agree that we have a poor energy policy, but for the exact opposite reasons that you are listing. We are completely reliant on oil, and if we were to drill in every place that we have it in the US, like you suggest, the supply would not last for very long because we just don't have very much. I can't give you figures, but we have a very small percentage of the world's oil and after we use all that up, where will we be? Some people say that peak oil is in the 1970s, meaning that the slope of oil abundance has become negative, aka, we are running out. Probably not within our lifetimes, but soon enough that we should start thinking about using other energy sources. I guess if you don't care what happens to your grandchildren or great grandchildren, then it's not a concern.

Yeah, it's so wrong to want to save the environment, we should help the economy! It's not like we have to worry about a point of no return. Our kids don't need breathable air, that's what air masks are for. And so what if they can't play in the rain because it will be so acidic it'll harm them. Or if most of the trees in the ecosystems because they weren't meant to survive in the new changing temperatures. All that matters is the economy. Of course... we survived a depression before and we could do it again without sweeping under the rug the fact that we're killing ourselves. That cancer is growing exponentially and almost anything now will give you cancer. Or what about the fact that we produce so much trash that we use our ocean as a dumpster and are somehow shocked when some of it washes up on the shore. The fact is, yes the economy sucks but it will change. It will take time, but it will change. The environment has an endpoint where you can't go back. And no matter who you are, rich or poor, so far this is only place we have to live. So if we destroy it by neglecting it again... well, everyone's gonna die. And yeah, it won't be us but do we really want to look at our kids and be like "Sorry, we destroyed the world so you're gonna be sick, your kids are gonna be sick, and we destroyed it so well there's no going back." Sorry, I'd rather be poor and struggle then once again neglect our planet. This planet is home to more than us selfish humans, why do all the animals have to die because we have to consume so much and live so selfishly?

Jude...I don't know if they still do it but for a while they had a "Bean Girl". Some poor girl that would walk around from table to table with a huge bucket of baked beans.

I'm down with any steakhouse chain called "Cattlemen's."

Chatondeneige, where do you live? The Cattlemens chain is I think 6 or 7 locations in California. Is it the same one you're talking about? I live in California, not Phoenix :) I went to Phoenix in July though!

All this food talk is making me hungry. I have food in the crock pot, but my dinner guests won't be here for two hours. ... Maybe I can snack between now and then?
