Michael Moore: False Promises of Green Energy

Michael Moore is an Academy Award winning filmmaker. Wikipedia notes:

He is best known for his work on globalization and capitalism. Moore has been labeled a left-wing documentary filmmaker, and a left-wing political activist. However, he rejects the label “political activist”.

His current film project has been an eye-opener. He said he wanted to know why things weren’t getting better. But when he started pulling on the thread, he and Moore said they were shocked to find how inextricably entangled alternative energy is with coal and natural gas, since they say everything from wind turbines to electric car charging stations are tethered to the grid.

The film’s director, Jeff Gibbs, said:

“It turned out the wakeup call was about our own side,” Gibbs said in a phone interview. “It was kind of crushing to discover that the things I believed in weren’t real, first of all, and then to discover not only are the solar panels and wind turbines not going to save us … but (also) that there is this whole dark side of the corporate money … It dawned on me that these technologies were just another profit center.”
