Finally, see “Climate Hustle” in Australia — Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney.

Don’t miss this if you can get there :- )  (And don’t forget to sign that Petition to get Australia out of the Paris Agreement too).

Climate Hustle, Documentary, Logo.

U.S.-based CFACT, along with its Australian partners, is hosting a showing of its new groundbreaking documentary, Climate Hustle, and you’re invited! Following each event, join film director CFACT Executive Director, Craig Rucker and film host and publisher of ClimateDepot.com Marc Morano, for a question and answer session. Get the behind the scenes scoop on both the film and the US’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.

This could be the antidote to the Al Gore effect. As Tim Blair says “Get out of Melbourne while you still can — the notorious serial chiller is coming. Let’s see if Al can break Melbourne’s 2015 July chill record.”

Information about Climate Hustle. | Information about CFACT.

FILM DESCRIPTION:
Scorching temperatures. Melting ice caps. Killer hurricanes and tornadoes. Disappearing polar bears. The end of civilization as we know it!

Are emissions from our cars, factories, and farms causing catastrophic climate change? Is there a genuine scientific consensus? Or is man-made “global warming” an overheated environmental myth being used to push for drastic government control and a radical “Green” energy agenda? This film, hosted by award-winning journalist Marc Morano of CFACT’s ClimateDepot.com, features interviews and comments from no fewer than 30 renowned and well-regarded scientists and experts.

These include a number of individuals who were former global warming believers or came from the political Left but were compelled to speak out after reexamining the evidence or watching the debate about global warming degenerate into absurd political demagoguery. These are people like: Dr. Judith Curry, former chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology; Ivy League geologist Dr. Robert Giegengack of the University of Pennsylvania; Former Greenpeace co-founder and ecologist Patrick Moore; UN IPCC lead author and economist Dr. Richard Tol of the Netherlands; and the late Dr. Bob Carter of James Cook University.

Viewers of Climate Hustle will get an informative and entertaining look at the media hype stoking the climate fires, along with the science refuting the outlandish claims of activists and alarmists who want to blame every strange weather event – and bizarre societal evil – on man-made global warming.

Reviews are stellar!

Weather Channel founder John Coleman:

“We climate change skeptics have long needed a film to counter An Inconvenient Truth. This may be it. I was honored to be asked to record the introduction of the movie for its May 2nd debut at 400 theaters, so I was provided a preview of the entire film. It is not made for scientists and political activists. It is designed to reach the general public including teenagers. It is my hope that in the years to come it will be shown just before or after Al Gore’s sci-fi epic in every school. I the meantime I will buy tickets and attend the showing at the nearest theater to my new home in Las Vegas. I hope it draws a crowd and holds and pleases the audience.”

Anthony Watts, Watts Up With That:

“The film’s strength is it’s wickedly effective use of slapstick humor, and making use of the words and deeds of alarmists to make you laugh at them. Climate Hustle is a brilliant use of their own ammunition against them… Monday May 2nd will be an historic night, since there’s never been a skeptic film like this before.  So if you haven’t already, invite a friend who thinks the world is going to hell in a hand-basket due to climate change to sit back and take in the reality with some popcorn. Get a large bucket, you’ll need it.”

Thomas Richard, Examiner.com:

“While the former VP Gore lectured us on what will happen in a warming world, Morano uses his genial personality and effective talking points to underscore the debate was never over. The perfect antidote to An Inconvenient Truth’s hectoring host, Morano not only challenges the viewer with pesky facts, but he also engages us with historical precedents….The effervescent narrator gently guides you through a millennia of scientific misdeeds, consensus science, and green zealotry. Morano talks to over a dozen climatologists, a bevy of scientists, meteorologists, a couple of Nobel winners, all the while interspersing archival footage that will shock and infuriate you.

    Why did it take 14 months to get to Australia?

      Can we get Their ABC to show this?

      Yes, odd that all the vested interests with billions of dollars could not put an Australian tour together and it was left to US think tanks to raise funds to come here…

        So the momentum it gained upon release of a runaway shopping trolley did not entice any investors?

        Or are you saying it was made cheaply and as a result is not much chop?

          I’m saying that if Big Oil, Big Gov and Big Bankers were funding skeptics it would have been made in 2007 and done a world tour.

          And Marc Morano would have won a Nobel Prize.

      I believe it may be of more interest to the general public. Anyone up to date with the raw data knows the real facts

      dang nabbit you beat me to it…………..what else can I say…………..ah yes there is a 38 year old company in state of green utopia that processes 15% (10,000 tons) of Australia’s plastic waste and turns it into pellets to make all sorts of things, well they have gone broke citing high power prices an increase from 80K to 180K a month in the past year.

      The owner was asked where does the plastic go now he replied “It will go to China to be processed and then sold back to us, which makes perfect sense because that’s who we sell all our coal to”

      It would be nice to think this movie will have an impact but lets not kid ourselves as we will be the only ones watching it.

    Delingpole’s latest contribution to science journalism affords some remarkable insight into where he and Mark get their pesky facts

    https://vvattsupwiththat.blogspot.com/2017/06/the-truth-that-sets-men-free-is-seldom.html

    [PS: Readers, that'll be the v-v-attsup site. - Jo]
    [PPS: Russell, don't keep your "remarkable insight" to yourself. Delingpole comes off very well in your post. I'm guessing that's not what you were aiming at, or are you a skeptic now? - Jo]

    I’m thinking that most of the people who most need to see the film won’t show up to watch it, much less want to hobnob with those terrible climate deniers afterward.

    Ignorance is an incurable disease it seems.

    Climate Hustle is screening at about the same time as Al Gore’s encore of IT. Is there anyone who might see both and compare credibility? And report back via Jo here?

    IPCC Third Assessment Report
    Chapter 14
    Section 14.2.2.2

    Last paragraph:

    “In sum, a strategy must recognize what is possible. In climate research and modelling, we should recognize that we are dealing with a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore that the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.”

    This information was not included in the Summary Report for Policymakers given to the press and public.

    If the climate is indeed a coupled non-linear chaotic system (who can doubt the IPCC) then there is no rational or scientific basis to make a definitive statement about a future state of the climate.

    At this point the coupled non-linear chaotic nature of the climate makes scientific observations academically interesting but individually they have no relevance in predicting the future state of the climate. The climate is a system which means the relationships among these observations are what is important not the observations themselves.

    All the public discourse regarding the future state of the climate has been based on the false premise that the current climate models are predicting the future state of the climate when in fact the models are merely projecting these states.

    Predictions are the purview of science. Model projections can only agree with predictions when the models duplicate the real world.

    To base public policy on an unknowable state of a system defies common sense. However, too much money and political power is at stake for the Central Planners to do otherwise.

    I would argue that the Climate Model True Believers are the ones taking an unscientific approach to the subject.

    In January 1961 President Eisenhower in his Farewell Address identified the situation in which we find ourselves today:

    “Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades.
    In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.
    Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.
    The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.
    It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system — ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.”

    Other relevant publications from Eric Hoffer are: “The True Believer” and “The Temper of Our Times”

    From “The Temper of Our Times”: “Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business and eventually degenerates into a racket.”
