Planet of the Humans documentary, 2020

Post by jozsef »

Here is the documentary, just watched. Let me know what is your reaction, response to it.
In short: it's about sustainability, nature and humanity - an investigation about the so called 'green' and 'renewable' energies.

Hi Kristina, great.

I've followed up with a couple of interviews with the filmmakers as well, it's pretty intriguing.

Interestingly, it has caused some backlash, also from many in the 'green' movement, some already collect petition to ban it.
Apparently they categorized it and it's message as a lobby for oil industry, as an attack for 'renewable' energy.
I oppose that, I think they just investigated what are currently in place and they chose the 'sad and shocking style' to assist people to wake up from the sold dream of that if you buy electric car, only eating grass and not using plastic bag then you are somehow a hero already who is saving the planet as the truth is much worse than that.

Thanks Talamon,

Based on this documentary, I found it interesting to realise that in the current approach with so-called 'green' enegery, there is actually no solution to the destruction of the Earth's resources at the current rate of consumption. Green energy seems to be another 'make belief' illusion that will pop sooner or later.

This then brings the question right back to our responsibility as Humans: what changes are required within ourselves as individuals but also on the level of our local and collective society?

Within myself I have found that when I am at peace with myself as a person, then my drive for consumption will diminish.
