Who will be next?

The Environment: A True Story documentary project is this close to being 60% funded. Who wants to make the next pledge and get us past that mark?

It won’t get us into the homestretch. There’s still a ways to go, and just over 17 days in which to cover it. But if you want common sense and sound science on the issue of “man-made” climate change, won’t you be the next contributor and push us past 60%?

P.S. If you’ve already backed the project, thank you again, and please share it as widely as possible.

Interview with Danielle Smith on the consequences of getting it wrong on climate change

Danielle Smith with AM770 in Calgary interviewed me last Friday (I was in the lobby of the hotel during a break in the Heartland Institute Climate Change conference) on what happens if reputable opinion is intolerantly wrong on “man-made” climate change.

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.

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.

Wish I’d said that – March 24, 2017

“he [André Malraux] was fond of quoting Napoleon’s proclamation, ‘My life is quite a novel.'”

Algis Valiunas reviewing Olivier Todd’s Malraux: A Life in National Review July 4, 2005 – and I suppose a “pithy” quotation fails if it requires an extensive gloss, but I have to add my reaction on reading this line, namely that if you ever notice such a thing about your own life you need to consider urgently the question “Yes but by which author?”
