Planet of the Humans

I stumbled on this a while ago. Just today I heard it mentioned in a podcast so I revisited it. I've never automatically dismissed movies with some Michael Moore influence. I always find them entertaining, even if I don't agree with them (his movie "Bowling for Columbine" was a farcical in its logic). This movie is directed by Jeff Gibbs. For me it's interesting. I have one paper published on solar thermal and have done site selection for wind power. So, I know the math fairly well. I've never drank the coolaid on the anti-carbon movement, nor have I bought in to the multiple related movements pushed by the left. With my engineering work it comes up regularly. The insights in this movie regarding "biomass" and the solar PV industry are really interesting. A little spoiler...While the director is pushing the narrative that there are too many humans I am left thinking that there is too much middle-class .....And, that's already being dealt with by the elite. They don't seem to worry much about overpopulation of peasants, other than the sterilizing agents reportedly found in common vaccines shipped to the third world (there's a story you probably haven't heard). Anyway...I suggest checking this out with a glass of nice Zin. Cheers!

    The clearest admission yet that their solution to climate change requires, primarily, a reduction of the Human population on Earth. Their ultimate aim is one Planet, no Humans.

    How silly of me, thinking biomass as food scraps, dead plants, human waste products somehow made into fuel, ah, but that's not what it is.
    Like everything else the left does, it's destruction.

    Want renewable? I am confident after some research that Oil IS renewable and I am willing to bet that we can do a better job of cleaning the entire process up even more than we have so far.

    I am certain that unless we already have better energy producing products yet to be shared with the world, oil will be the go to method of powering everything that will rebuild our civilization after the Sun's Micronova, the crescendo of a whole lot of catastrophes we face at the end of this 12K year cycle . . . soon to be upon us.

    Keep your ears pealed and listen for Magnetic field strength, (weaknesses) reports.
    Our N/S poles no longer reside in the polar regions and continue to head toward each other, weakening by the day. We surmise that field strength is roughly 30% weak; meaning we only have 70% protecting us from cosmic radiation, and not to mention, ozone depletion and disruptions from coronal, sunspot and filamental eruptions;; which cause or make worse, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and really turbulent weather.

    Sorry to be the barer of such exciting news, as if we didn't have enough to worry about.

      Oil and nuclear are my vote. I know of areas where wind power will do better than break even. But, nobody seems to really want it - only saying they do. I've always wanted to engineer and build an off-the-grid small community. It would take money, though. Stefen Molyneux said it best, "Ecological stewardship requires surplus dollars."
