|Lies Of The Environmental Elite|

The lies just keep coming from the environmental movement. And they just keep getting ignored by the mainstream media.
Last week I attended the "solar-powered" New York premiere of "The Age Of Stupid," a documentary that claims that the human race will be extinct by 2055 because of manmade Global Warming. The documentary was also quite clear that "apart from burning down a forest, flying is the worst thing one could do to cause climate change."
Given that flying is so dangerous and our destruction so imminent, I decided to ask the filmmakers and their celebrity supporters if they had flown there. But after a few uncomfortable answers and several attempts to avoid the question, the filmmakers decided to use their security muscle to manhandle me off the Green carpet. It seems no inconvenient truths were allowed at this movie premiere.
But the cover-up did not start with their refusal to answer awkward questions on the Green carpet. The whole premiere was a sham and a lie. It was supposed to be a low-carbon, solar powered event and so it appeared when the cameras were there in the evening.
However, visiting the scene a few hours earlier, I uncovered the dirty little secret of "The Age Of Stupid" premiere. They were using diesel-powered trucks to put the tent and equipment in place. But before the media arrived, the trucks were removed and the solar panels left in place to imply that a major event could be organized without using fossil fuels.
This is a lie. It is not a harmless lie. The makers of the documentary and the Enviro-establishment want a ban on the use of fossil fuels within 10 years. They say renewables will be enough to power our homes, workplaces and schools. Even worse, they claim renewables will be sufficient to power much-needed development in Asia and Africa.
But the people who are making this claim cannot even power a film premiere without using fossil fuels. Their deception is breathtaking, but their double standards are appalling and verging on criminal.
Those who are trying to force "sustainability" on the people of Africa and the poor of the developing world cannot even have a simple planned event without breaking their own rules and lying about it.
For the environmental elite who organized the New York premiere of "The Age Of Stupid," sustainability is a pose -- a marketing device -- but not something that should interfere with their way of life. But for the poor of the developing world and developed world, "sustainability" is a guarantee that they and their children will live short and poverty stricken lives.
