An Inconvenient Question: Did You Fly to the NYC Premiere of Climate Change Movie "Age of Stupid"?



MANILA (9/23/2009) - The much-awaited documentary "Age of Stupid" premiered globally in over 50 countries (including Antarctica) this week, sparking renewed calls for climate change action. The film, directed by British filmmaker and climate change activist Franny Armstrong ("If you're not fighting climate change or improving the world, you're wasting your life"), is set in the bleak scenery of 2055 where an archivist (played by Oscar nominee Pete Postlethwaite) is looking at 2008 archive footage that illustrate the signs and impacts of climate change.

The film's main premise is that climate change is happening now, often with alarming and disastrous effects, but humans are not doing more to stop it. The film has served as another rallying point for the climate change campaigns of many international environmental groups like Greenpeace, which is actively promoting the film worldwide.

MP: In the video above, journalist/filmaker Phelim McAleer asks celebrity attendees and film director Franny Armstrong an inconvenient question while covering the premiere of "The Age of Stupid": Did you fly to New York? Ms. Armstrong apparently can't or won't answer the question, and the journalist is ejected.

Elitism - no suprise here. Elites view the world as their playground and us common people cannot ruin it for them by flying. Gillian Anderson can fly and gallavant around the world but not you or me...

Hmmm, I'm an airline employee and I want to take a bow for helping wreck the environment...

It's all just a big strange cult whose goal is simply to control other people. There's nothing else to it.

From a technical standpoint, what the hell do they think Climate Change is going to do that would constitute destruction of the planet?

I just watched the making of for this movie, and it seems their biggest observational event was exploring an abandoned Katrina impacted area. But she said the answer to her own accusation: "would you want your children to live in that?" The answer is obvious: the reason 'that' would be crap to live in is because no one is living in 'that'. The people moved away to Texas never to return, so the human environment was left to nature, which just happens to be unlivable.

Katrina was not a disaster event. It was a migratory event. Nature can only destroy human environment when we let them. That holds equally well in terms of natural disasters and climate change.

Thanks for this post, I had not seen this since these Save the world types are a dime a dozen. Bravo to the journolist trying to expose this Climate Change fraud.

Enviros will abandon flying the day Republicans like Bush, Cheney, Gingrich, Limbaugh see combat in the military. Yes they are hypocrites but that abounds on the other side of the aisle.
