Environmentalists bicker as planet of the humans burns

By Derek Dunn, InsideOttawaValley, May 2, 2020 Over on the left side of our planet of the humans a debate as massive as it is misguided has erupted. Everyone from music legend Neil Young and Green Party of Canada MP Elizabeth May to green celebrity Al Gore and environmental activist Bill McKibben denounce the Michael Moore-backed documentary Planet of the Humans. The film pilfers Gore and McKibben for cashing-in on the green movement so it’s no surprise they give it two thumbs down.

The problem with the YouTube-available documentary released for free April 20, Earth Day, is twofold: too much time on tearing down clean energy and, related, too little on addressing the central difficulties humanity faces – namely overconsumption and overpopulation.
