The Environment: A True Story


It’s time to set the record straight on “man-made” climate change. And that’s what I’m going to do with my new documentary project looking at what we really know about the Earth’s climate, not just cherry-picking from the last ten years or a hundred, but looking back thousands, millions and hundreds of millions of years. It’s going to expose a lot of hype, bad science and unjustified shouting on the part of the alarmists and lay out what we really know.

The climate has always been variable. And yes, sometimes it changes in ways that can spell trouble. But hysteria, misinformation and name-calling won’t help us deal with anything that might be coming our way. Virtually everything the conventional wisdom maintains on climate, about what we know and about what’s probably happening, is demonstrably false and it’s time to cut through the scaremongering and tell the real story.

I’m really excited about this project. I’m convinced the time is right to push back against the exaggeration, alarmism and intellectual bullying. But to make it I need your help. We’re crowdfunding it, as we have our last four documentaries. So it will only happen if you and people like you contribute, large amounts or small, and crucially share it with friends, family and associates in person, on Facebook and Twitter, by email and any other way you can.

I’ve set a minimum goal of $50,000 because for that I can make a documentary on this vital topic. But I want to be completely frank that to make a truly polished film, to get the gear we need, to travel to important locations and to help sustain us in our work, we need to get well past that minimum, to a “stretch” goal of at least $100,000.

So if you’re ready for some sound information and straight talk on “man-made climate change”, click on the Kickstarter link to back the project, and share it as widely as you can.

Half way!

Amazing! We just reached the half-way point on our Kickstarter funding campaign for The Environment: A True Story. Thanks so much to everyone who backed it. Now let’s push on to 2/3, 3/4 and full funding because we’re not out of the woods yet (or into them, depending where we film) and with Kickstarter, it’s all or nothing.

I’m convinced the time is right for this documentary showing how the alarmists’ claims, and computer modeling, just aren’t compatible with actual evidence. All that we know about the past history of the Earth, and the present, doesn’t fit what they’re telling us they know about the future.

So thanks to everyone who has already backed the project, and please continue helping us spread the word. If you’re not yet a supporter, please make a pledge today and stand up against bad policy driven by bad science and shrill rhetoric, and in favour of civil discussion and common sense.

P.S. As I said from the outset, the $50,000 target is the minimum I need to make the film. Once we reach that number, and I’m confident we will, please continue sharing it until the April 16 deadline so we can afford the equipment, travel and graphics to make the best documentary possible.

Rebel interview on climate change

Following our Economic Education Association of Alberta conference “Meeting the Climate Change Challenge,” Holly Nicholas of Rebel Media interviewed me about the project. You can find the full story here.

Celebrating Earth Hour

Earth Hour comes at 8:30 this evening wherever you are. And it’s easy to make fun of this self-described “movement” as an emptily sanctimonious piece of “slacktivism” where we turn off a few lamps briefly and feel virtuous. But it is important to protect the environment from all sorts of things including the “light pollution” that means too many urban kids have never really seen the stars. We can have the comforts, conveniences and wonders of modern technology and production without cutting ourselves off from nature… if we use our hearts and our heads.

So during Earth Hour take a few minutes to reflect on where we’d be if we had no artificial light, or heat, not even fire that we had learned to control. But also reflect on where we’d be if we had no green spaces, no habitats, no wild companions on the planet. And then resolve to protect both the environment and the economy with intelligent compassion.

Including making a pledge to The Environment: A True Story if you haven’t already, and spreading the word if you have, so we can stop pouring money, time, effort and concern into bad policy driven by bad science, and devote them instead to the things that really need doing.
