Green! The New Black: Are Renewables, Renewables?

Removed from climate change and renewables debate is the only thing that might save us: getting a grip on our out-of-control human presence and consumption. Why is this not the issue? Because that would be bad for profits, bad for business.

Are Renewables, Renewables?

Have we environmentalists fell for illusions, 'green illusions,' that are anything but green because we’re scared that this is the end—and we’ve pinned all our hopes on biomass, wind turbines, and electric cars? No amount of batteries is going to save us!

Green! The New Black: Video's 

                                                             The Uncertainty Has Settled (Full film)

After eight years of traveling through conflict and poverty zones, Marijn Poels - a progressive filmmaker/journalist - decides to take some time off. In the Austrian mountains no less. It confronts him unexpectedly with the roots of agriculture and its modern-day perspective. Globalization and climate politics are causing radical changes such as farmers becoming energy suppliers. But the green ideology raises questions. The scientific topic of climate change has now become a matter of world politics incontrovertibly. Poels faces a personal conflict. Are we doing the right thing?

                                             Why renewables can’t save the planet | Michael Shellenberger 

Environmentalists have long promoted renewable energy sources like solar panels and wind farms to save the climate. But what about when those technologies destroy the environment? In this provocative talk, Time Magazine 'Hero of the Environment' and energy expert, Michael Shellenberger explains why solar and wind farms require so much land for mining and energy production, and an alternative path to saving both the climate and the natural environment. Michael Shellenberger is a Time Magazine Hero of the Environment and President of Environmental Progress, a research and policy organization. A lifelong environmentalist, Michael changed his mind about nuclear energy and has helped save enough atomic reactors to prevent an increase in carbon emissions equivalent to adding more than 10 million cars to the road. He lives in Berkeley, California.

                                     Michael Moore Presents: Planet of the Humans | Teaser | Directed by Jeff Gibbs

Michael Moore presents Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that amid a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It's too little, too late.

       Michael Moore film Planet of the Humans removed from YouTube

British environmental photographer’s copyright claim prompts website to remove film that has been condemned by climate scientists. Michael Moore’s film Planet of the Humans has been removed from YouTube. YouTube has taken down the controversial Michael Moore-produced documentary Planet of the Humans in response to a copyright infringement claim by a British environmental photographer.
The movie, which has been condemned as inaccurate and misleading by climate scientists and activists, allegedly includes a clip used without the permission of the owner Toby Smith, who does not approve of the context in which his material is being used. In response, the filmmakers denied violating fair usage rules and accused their critics of politically motivated censorship.

I'm especially interested in new Hydrogen techniques. I'm convinced that - in the near future - Hydrogen will surpass the development of solar or wind as alternative energy source. Safety concerns will find a solution and Hydrogen will be applied massively in all forms of transportation.
