There can be no doubt that every single Australian libertarian should be opposed to Penny Wong’s ETS. All of us should be doing anything in our power to stop this monstrosity from this job-killing, economy-destroying big government tax from becoming law. If passed, it will set a new precedent in government meddling right down to the household level, pave the stage for greater power to unelected bureaucrats, and will achieve nothing for the environment. Even if believe in anthropogenic global warming, there is no way you can believe this is the best way to proceed.
With a Senate vote on Australia’s economic death-sentence only a month away, now is the time for action.
Fortunately, in a little under 3 weeks, a groundbreaking major film will premiere worldwide that tackles the human cost of global warming head on. On October 18 Not Evil Just Wrong will premiere all over the world. And this will be a game-changer.
Made by Greener Horizon Films, producers of the critically acclaimed “Mind Your Own Business” (which many of you may have seen on its Australian tour), this is the first major movie on the true cost of global warming hysteria.
The Australian Libertarian Society is an affiliate of Not Evil Just Wrong, and every sale of this film through this webpage will directly help the ALS.
Not Evil Just Wrong applies rigorous investigative journalism and cutting-edge cinematographic techniques to create a documentary that is not only a compilation of scientific data regarding ‘climate change’, but also includes personal stories that highlight the very real danger of climate-change hysteria presents. This is no dry, scientific analysis: it is a personal look at the human cost of radical environmentalism. From the millions who have died in Africa due to anti-DDT pushes, to the jobs and lives that will be destroyed if cap-and-tax is passed around the world, for the first time environmentalist will be held to account.
Having watched the film, I can say without any doubt that it is brilliantly produced, funny, moving and very, very powerful. And defiantly worth watching.
So far the reaction to this film has been overwhelmingly positive: Australia’s Jennifer Marohasy wrote that“Not Evil Just Wrong is politically incorrect, compelling and spans several continents including Africa while exploring its subject matter with harshness and humour.” The National Post (Canada) reported that this is “a devastating account of … Mr. Gore’s brand of self-interested and hypocritical alarmism”. The Irish Times said that “If the advance publicity is anything to go by, Not Evil Just Wrong will do for Al Gore what Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11 did for George W Bush.” BigHollywood.com says it “skewers global warming alarmists in the media and around the world”, and John Fund, writing in the Wall Street Journal , reviews how it “takes on the hysteria over global warming and warns that rushing to judgment in combating climate change would threaten the world’s poor”. The list goes on.
On the left, the reaction has been slightly different – the UK Telegraph reports of death-treats against the producers, and such delightful emails as “It is one of my fondest hopes that whatever remnants of human civilization exists at the end of this catastrophe is able to put people like you on trial for crimes against humanity and give you the same treatment Hitler’s henchmen got at Nurnberg a long drop at the end of a short rope.” Says it all really.
Because obviously Hollywood didn’t want to distribute this film, filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney have a unique and I think rather fun distribution plan. In a world first, people can order “premiere packs” which will come with a DVD, a movie poster so they can have a home cinema and a piece of red carpet so they can have their own special premiere (although they can’t press play until the right time!)
The world-wide premiere is to be held on October 18 at 8pm, and the producers are calling for screenings in Australia at either 8pm on the 18th Australian time, or alternatively simultaneously with the US premiere, which works out as being at 10am Monday the 19th AEST. To those who screen it on the Monday AEST, the opportunity exists participate afterwords in an online discussion webcast with a panel of experts straight from Washington DC afterwords, where viewers would be able to email/facebook/twitter questions to the panel for instant updates.
So! On October 18th, make history and be part of an international movement with a Guinness World Record attempt to have the largest ever simultaneous film premiere! 🙂
Remember: for ever DVD sold through this blog, a percentage of the profits will be given to the Australian Libertarian Society to promote freedom in Australia.
Already throughout the world families, non-profits, even unions are holding public screenings. So join in! You can watch it at home, or you can attend one of the numerous public screenings that will be held around Australia. Better yet – make up your own screening and invite your friends!
From the EU Parliament in Brussles, to small towns in rural America, all over the world this film will be HUGE! And I say this quite seriously – I would not be spending my time promoting this if I thought otherwise.
I am currently coordinating screenings and sales around Australia. If you are interested in hosting a public screening – even if it’s just a few people – or are interested in helping promote this film in Australia, please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meanwhile, go buy a DVD! 🙂
This is your chance to not only get a great DVD and be part of history, but directly support the ALS.
Here’s a trailer:
Also, you can watch a short clip from the film that includes comments by Patrick Moore, a co-founder of Greenpeace and also one that features rather horrifying tales of brainwashed children. Or you can watch the Directors of this film interview – or at least attempt to interview – some radical left environmentalist filmmakers.
Writing last week for Quadrant, the producers quite rightly stated that “History has proven that radical environmentalists cannot be believed. Australians need to reject their nonsense”. Let’s work together to make that happen!
