Excitement is rising as people around the world are gearing up to host their own premieres of Not Evil Just Wrong on Oct. 18 -- and with good reason.
The thought of a "cap and trade" system to reduce carbon dioxide emissions passing the Senate is making many people nervous, perhaps none more so than those who live in Ohio. They are worried about the drastic consequences that will come from such a misguided bill.
The documentary exposes the devastating effect of the legislation, which will send jobs overseas to places such as India and China. The movie also shows how extreme environmentalism will hurt hard-working Americans, the very people who are the heart and soul of Ohio.
Tom Stacy of Save Western Ohio said his organization has a cross-section of political beliefs, but there is a consensus that the cap-and-trade bill "will do absolutely nothing to help cool the planet."
Stacy has teamed with a local organization that was part of the Sept. 12 movement against big government and reserved a venue in Bellefontaine to show Not Evil Just Wrong. They are running advertisements promoting the film in local papers and radio stations. He believes at least 300 to 400 people will attend the premiere.
Marion Bower of Fremont and her organization, American Patriots against Government Excess, have rented Clyde High School which seats 800. Bower believes they will fill the venue. "Every single time someone orders a ticket, be it through e-mail or by phone, they all say, 'What can I do to help? I want to help,'" she said.
Bower plans on taking the proceeds from the $5 tickets and donating half of it back to the local high school's government and American history departments.
Jim Flaugher and his group, the North Central Ohio Tea Party Association, are excited to be hosting an event. They have rented a theater at North Central State College in Shelby to seat about 170 people. Flaugher believes that "without a doubt" all the tickets will sell.
People like Stacy, Bower and Flaugher and their respective organizations are just the tip of the iceberg that represents something deeper within many Ohioans and people around the world. Not Evil Just Wrong is premiering in 20 other countries besides the United States.
The Not Evil team will be awarding an all-expenses-paid trip to Ireland to the premiere hosts with the largest attendance, and a $500 prize will go to those with the most creative themes at their premieres.The Not Evil team thanks Ohio heroes such as Stacy, Bower and Flaugher, and we hope you will join us Oct. 18 at 8 p.m. EST as we attempt to break a world record for a simultaneous movie premier, all while setting the record straight once and for all about the true cost of global warming hysteria.
