The hysteria about global warming is "the world's greatest-ever scare campaign," Bob Carter wrote in Australia's Quadrant Online, and Not Evil Just Wrong can help undermine the fear-mongering and save Australians from destructive emissions regulations.
Carter's review cover key plot points in the documentary and snapshots of the most compelling and humorous moments. Here are excerpts of the review:
One of the greatest strengths of the film is the archival film footage that the producers have unearthed of some of the key players in the drama. For instance, it is fascinating to see Paul Erlich in grainy black and white asserting back in the 1970s that the world had "no chance of reaching the year 2000."
... In what has proved to be a sensational publicity coup for the film, footage of Stanford University's Stephen Schneider, filmed with his agreement, was withdrawn after legal threats from the University. ... Even those most trusting of academic authority must at this point surely be inclined to ask, "Just what has Professor Schneider got to hide?"
Carter ends with this admonition to Australians: "Watch this film, and use the knowledge that you will gain to lobby your senator to vote against the Australian emissions-trading bill."
