Damn but that was really good: Planet of the Humans

| No Comments

Well done and a fantastic poke in the eye with a sharp stick to the hypocritical "Environmental" organizations who take their money anywhere they can find it. We are talking the biggies here: Sierra Club, 350, Nature Conservancy, Al Gore, etc... Renewable energy is a scam - been saying that for years - but this film really documents it.

Send the link for this to your environmentalist friends - this is well presented and factual. Presents a very clear vision of what is being done and what needs to be done. Be sure to watch through the end credit roll - some interesting facts.

My only gripe is that they do not offer a way clear of this. No mention of the new nuclear technologies. In fact, they visit a rare-earth mine (materials for generators, solar panels, electronics and cell phones) and talk about the Thorium "waste". You can burn Thorium in a nuclear reactor and the designs are perfectly safe - walk-away safe. You could lose all power and cooling and the LFTR (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor) would Just. Shut. Down.

Thorium also avoids the problem with Uranium where some of the isotopes are dangerously radioactive for 10,000+ years. With Thorium reactors, you need to sequester the waste for only 200-400 years. Also, Thorium reactors can utilize the spent fuel from the older reactor designs and is an excellent way to get rid of the wastes from them. We had Thorium reactors operating sucessfully in the 1960's but since Thorium can not go Ka-Boom, the nuclear industry did not want to invest in two seperate mining and refining supply chains - one for bombs and one for power. They chose instead to go with Uranium and Plutonium for both bombs and very expensive reactors for power.

Anyway, go here and watch: Michael Moore Presents: Planet of the Humans | Full Documentary | Directed by Jeff Gibbs
