Planet of the Humans : Let’s just have a think…

Just Have a Think

May 5, 2020

On the 50th Anniversary of the first ever Earth Day, Jeff Gibbs and Michael Moore released a documentary film free on You Tube. The film is called Planet of the Humans, and it proved quite popular. This week we review the movie and consider its implications for climate activism. Read Bill McKibben’s full response to the original film in Rolling Stone here : https://www.rollingstone.com/politics…

Extra information received 11th May 2020 from Mike Bailey, one of the trustees of Solar Fest http://www.SolarFest.org “For accuracy, Roy Butler was slightly off in the date he suggested to you. Based on the music being performed, this was shot in 2006, not 2005. In 2006, and every year, power was banked to the grid for weeks prior to the festival, with the surplus contributed to the farm. For the ten years SolarFest was at Forget Me Not Farm, we ran a surplus covering all of our usage on a net meter basis. By 2008 the festival was run entirely on solar, including a permanent array with battery backup. Also we shifted to LEDs for the light show to reduce consumption and no longer relied on the grid.”

ADDENDUM: I said in the video “Forbes conceded …” I have now learnt from another climate communicator, Adam Siegel, that this statement is a misleading representation of the motivation of the report’s author. The cited/shown article was from one of Forbes online contributors called Silvio Marcacci. Silvio is a clean-energy communicator. His piece was spot on but it was not written in an attempt to ‘represent’ Forbes and I should not have used the phrase ‘Forbes conceded’. Apologies to Silvio for this misrepresentation.
