The new movie produced by Marc Morano, “Climate Hustle” was in theaters on May 2 all over the country. The movie shows the skeptics side of the argument about CO2 and global warming, aka Climate Change. Many notable skeptics are in the cast.
The target audience, as I see it, was for the relatively low information people that get their global warming news from the main stream media. If you are into this topic daily or often, most of it will be review. I think Morano did a very good job in assembling the topics and the players. So I recommend it. If there was something I would like to see expanded was the part where warmer predictions were examined. About 10 predictions were discussed briefly. I would like to have seen more emphasis.
As part of the film and as an “extra” was a panel that discussed current issues especially those of the current attempt to criminalize discussion of skeptic views. Bill Nye is feature in it and comes off looking pretty small minded. The panel moderator was Brett Bozell and the panel consisted of Sarah Palin, David Legates and Marc Morano. David Legates stood out.
Looking at Morano’s blog, “Climate Depot”, the attendance was good, nation-wide. I went over to Delaware and my estimate was that about 50 people were in the theater.
This was a one night showing and I am not sure what the plans are for this movie. It may see a general release or perhaps be available in places like Netflix.
