Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Planet of the Humans (2019), a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day – that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road – selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It’s too little, too late. Removed from the debate is the only thing that MIGHT save us: getting a grip on our out-of-control human presence and consumption. Why is this not THE issue? Because that would be bad for profits, bad for business. Have we environmentalists fallen for illusions, “green” illusions, that are anything but green, because we’re scared that this is the end-and we’ve pinned all our hopes on biomass, wind turbines, and electric cars? No amount of batteries are going to save us, warns director Jeff Gibbs (lifelong environmentalist and co-producer of Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) and Bowling for Columbine (2002)). This urgent, must-see movie, a full-frontal assault on our sacred cows, is guaranteed to generate anger, debate, and, hopefully, a willingness to see our survival in a new way-before it’s too late.
Plot: Forget all you have heard about how “Renewable Energy” is our salvation. It is all a myth that is very lucrative for some. Feel-good stuff like electric cars, etc. Such vehicles are actually powered by coal, natural gas… or dead salmon in the Northwest.

Investigative look and exposé of many on the green energy band wagon
“Planet of the Humans” is an eye-opening documentary film about the alternative energy “industry.” As public interest has grown for environmental protection, a major area of concern has been about global warming caused by greenhouse gases. One way to curb these emissions is to reduce consumption and reliance on fossil fuels. So, we need to find alternative energy sources.

Electric cars cut the emissions from fossil fuel burning. Wind and solar power can replace coal, oil and gas plants to produce electricity. Biomass gets a nod in some quarters because it doesn’t emit the same gasses. The public’s interest and clamoring for environmental protection has been taken up in many sectors, government and private. But how much of the private attention is genuine interest in the environment and our public welfare? How much is the corporate sector willing to invest to preserve our environment, regardless of economic costs or benefits? And how much is the apparent “greening” of industry really helping the environment?

Those and other questions are what Jeff Gibbs and Michael Moore set out to answer in this film. Gibbs had a reason to start looking, which he explains in the film opening. And this turns out to be an exposé of a green energy band wagon that doesn’t deliver what it promises, and may even be more costly to the environment in the long run. Instead of helping the environment, many big businesses and the wealthy people that run or own them are creating a smokescreen. Some businesses and politicians profess to be going green, so the media and environmental groups tout them as good guys. But, most are just fronts that capture the eye but don’t replace or reduce fossil energy use. And many of the enviro groups close to our hearts champion the very sources which just happen to also grease their coffers.

Perhaps most revealing of all is the real cost of the alternative energy sources – in money, yes, but more so in their impact on the environment. Biomass is one alternative that I could never understand. Burning of trees to generate electricity works, but is horribly inefficient and destroys whole forests that are crucial to our environment. Each tree at 10 years of growth absorbs 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year and produces enough oxygen in the atmosphere to support two human beings. So, why would we burn trees for energy when they are necessary for the planet’s health and it takes many years to replace them? And biomass produces its own emissions, including soot and odors. The film looks at this issue head on.

Electric vehicles are good and obviously reduce fossil fuel use. But the film points out that most of the energy used to recharge those vehicles is produced by fossil fuel plants. So, the emissions are transferred from the cars to the big plants. The real benefit will come when the power source that feeds electric cars no longer comes from fossil fuels.

At the end 2006, I retired from a large public utility. Our main energy source was hydroelectric power. Like any conscientious public utility, we looked to support other alternative energy sources as well. So, we bought the output of a private wind farm project in the 1990s. I climbed a 212-foot tower and looked at the inside of a wind turbine. We had to build a separate substation to take the power from those turbines to integrate them into our transmission system.

Wind energy sounds like it would make sense. But it only operates at about 40% efficiency. Then there’s the environmental foot print that these turbines make. Each wind turbine unit weighs 180 tons and requires a 15-20-foot-deep concrete foundation. That’s 60 truckloads of 750 cubic yards each. And, all the steel and plastic that goes into making the housing, tower and blades uses large amounts of energy. The wind turbines last just 20 to 25 years and when they are done, they are dynamited. The steel can be recycled but the fiberglass blades and other debris winds up in landfills.

Solar energy likewise has its drawbacks. The panels wear out. They take a lot of space to generate small increments of energy. And they use a lot of energy in their manufacture in the first place. This film shows abandoned solar and wind power sites. They resemble desert or industrial wastelands. That’s an apparent byproduct of the then defunct alternative energy source, and who will clean up and restore those sites?

Moore and Gibbs did a good job with this documentary, and a real service, I think. This film does a good task of investigative reporting along the lines of the long-time CBS program, “60 Minutes.” I can’t understand why anyone (well, except for the billionaires and politicians that the film exposes) would be down on this film. People who care about our planet and our well-being should appreciate it. Those who belong to environmental action groups should be wary of the green-baiting by big corporations and politicians. And, we should all beware of green energy projects that only placate public concerns but turn out to be smokescreens that don’t help the environment in the end.

I think there’s great potential yet for renewable energy sources. We should continue to look for new ways to harness them. Ways that don’t leave a big environmental footprint.

Timely and Hard-Hitting Documentary
We’ve been had. This film shows the lies and the fantastical thinking behind the notion that solar, wind, and especially, “biomass” are “clean” energy. It’s a bitter pill for a lot of people to swallow.

This film gores, no pun intended, many sacred cows, including the most outspoken (and wealthy) environmental activists. Guess who their best friends are? Several well-known organizations are taken down.

I always knew that people back in the 70s were right: We have to use less…we have to live more in harmony with nature…we have to conserve. We have to have fewer children. We live on a planet with finite resources. We cannot continue boundless growth.

My one quibble with the film is that it does not discuss nuclear energy.
