STATES CHRONICLE – Is the climate change around the world actually a climate change hustle? Is it something the media or some political candidates have invented to attract more audiences and partisans? Or is it a real issue skeptics are making worse? Climate Hustle, a documentary about – as the title points out, climate change, is showing people of the mixed science plus entertainment era, the opinions of both camps around this now delicate subject.
I personally do not believe the climate changes unfolding savagely throughout the world to be climate change hustle or bogus. But what am I basing my opinions on?
Mario Vargas Llosa has called this era, the era of entertainment. And they say that this 30 something year old generation is the generation of documentaries. The generation that makes “informed” decisions based on the facts presented under the form of documentaries. No wonder the term mockumentary has also been thrown around lately. Misleading information often feeds the short span attention minds of the generation that has traded values for speed.
So enter Climate Hustle.
On one side we have Sarah Palin a firm disbeliever of the environmental changes and a political media bate and on the other side, there’s Bill Nye, the Science Guy, and ex Boieng mechanical engineer defending the climate change movement.
It´s fair to say the climate is constantly changing whether we want it or not or whether we´re influencing it. Change is at the base of our very own human nature. However, being the generation of speed, we might also rush the planet into destruction. Because what about the rapid ice cap meltdown, the active rising sea levels, the floods, the tsunamis, the more frequent and stronger earthquakes crashing entire cities all over the world?
Are 97% of the scientists out there adding to the negative perception of mainstream science by really just repeating what they’ve heard? It’s a claim made in the presentation of the Climate Hustle climate change documentary that we recommend seeing for the purpose of inspiration. Inspiration to go do your own research, find out on your own if the international committees set up to address these climate changes have underlying reasons or the issue desperately and truly requires immediate action.
What do you think? Are we rushing ourselves into the grave and dragging the planet with us or is climate change actually a climate change hustle?
