“The judge identified nine aspects of An Inconvenient Truth, nine core errors, where Al Gore either misstated the IPCC or prejudicially exaggerated what they found.” John Day is the lawyer for a British parent who sued the British Department
of Education when they tried to distribute An Inconvenient Truth to schools.

Peter FosterNational Post editor Peter Foster delved into the developing story of James Cameron's new historical role-environmental alarmist. Foster highlighted directors Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney's roles in the documentaries Mine Your Own Business and Not Evil Just Wrong, which debunked bad science and staunchly supported economic development.

Foster noted that McElhinney has been one of the most vocal opponents of Cameron's eco-message. McElhinney's speech at CPAC confronted director for his hypocritical and anti-capitalist views, and was rewarded with a standing ovation 8,000 people strong.
Below you can see an excerpt of Foster's article:

Perhaps Avatar’s most outspoken critic is Ann McElhinney. At the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington two weeks ago, Ms. McElhinney noted — to Tea Party cheers — that Avatar might be both beautiful and compelling, but it was also an “anti-American, anti-capitalist, anti-mining rant.”

...

The redoubtable Ms. McElhinney is one half of a still-married filmmaking team, along with Phelim McAleer. This Irish duo knows whereof they speak when it comes to mining and environmental issues. They have made two excellent films: Mine Your Own Business, on the campaign by big, well-funded NGOs to prevent mining development whatever the cost in jobs and development prospects for poor countries; and Not Evil Just Wrong, about Al Gore’s brand of climate change hysteria.

Mr. McAleer has achieved YouTube fame by fearlessly asking inconvenient questions of the Green Elite, including Mr. Gore. He was interviewed from the Copenhagen Climate Change conference dressed as a polar bear and under missile attack from outraged True Believers!

Avatar’s polarizing effect was moved up another notch this week — strengthening Ms. McElhinney’s case — when a bunch of Usual Suspect NGOs and native groups took a full-page ad in the Hollywood magazine Variety (see it below) to praise the film and hijack its already eco-hysterical meaning. The ad’s heading is “James Cameron & Avatar… You have our vote!” Below is an aerial shot of the Alberta oilsands and the less-than-imaginative legend “Canada’s Avatar Sands.”

A million thanks to Ms. McElhinney from Alberta
Ann is a breath of, not just fresh air, but life-giving oxygen in the current suffocating environment of AlGoraphobia. I am hated across Canada, because I am Albertan. Because we keep the economic ticker of this snotty national commune going by selling oil to the U.S., which Man Bear Pig says is "Immoral". And so we are villified. See how you like it, Mr. Obama and Ms. Pelosi, when we start selling your oil to China.

On a positive not, though, I believe that Avatar's snub by the Academy Awards was the "Disco Sucks" moment for AlGoraphobia. It's Sierra Club 8th-Grader message was dissed by the Hollywood elite. It's the first popular kick in the crotch for Slime At Rage.

Another thanks from Alberta
I've always followed the blog on 'not evil just wrong', and I'd like to start off with a word of thanks !

I am also an alberta, and I've had to endure nazi like propaganda from groups like green peace and sierra club, dictating to the populace how the 'tar sands' is destructive beyond comprehension. Years ago, a fried who worked there, took us on a tour of the area (Syncrude I believe), and that thought of 'destruction' never crossed my mind, in fact, I was amazed at the technological achievement of the whole area.

Knowing what Avatar stood for, I will not watch it, period. I would rather watch grass grow or paint dry than watch that piece of trash James Cameron calls a movie. I am glad that Hurt Locker won best picture !!

BTW, I am ashamed that Cameron is canadian born, we do not need his kind here, and I am shameful to even hear that he is a canadian.

If McElhinney/McAleer ever get a chance, read : Environmental Mafia : The Enemy is Us by Richard O'Leary. The author tackles the same issue as McElhinney/McAleer, where the hippies incessant lies about the environment has cost jobs and livlihood.

Keep up the good work !!!!
