Storyline

Melting sea ice, glacier loss and rising sea levels. Severe droughts and wildfires. Increasingly severe tornadoes, hurricanes, and flooding. Record heat waves. Climate change is no longer a prediction for the future, but a startling reality of today. Yet, as evidence of our changing climate mounts and the scientific consensus proves human causation, there continues to be little political action to thwart the warming of our planet. "Greedy Lying Bastards" investigates the reason behind stalled efforts to tackle climate change despite consensus in the scientific community that it is not only a reality but also a growing problem placing us on the brink of disaster. The film details the people and organizations casting doubt on climate science and claims that greenhouse gases are not affected by human behavior. From the Koch Brothers to ExxonMobil, to oil industry front groups, to prominent politicians and Justices, this provocative exposé unravels the layers of deceit threatening ...

Take The Power Back
5 February 2014 | by valis1949See all my reviews

GREEDY LYING BASTARDS (dir. Craig Scott Rosebraugh) The first section of the documentary examines the 'real time' effects of global warming, and then shows how the efforts to suppress the scientific links between cancer and cigarette smoking by the tobacco lobbyists in the early 1960's are eerily similar to the current campaign to squelch the facts about human induced climate change.

The film then shows that there is overwhelming consensus within the scientific community that global warming is inextricably tied to the burning of fossil fuels, i.e. coal, gas, and oil. The 'anti-global warming' voice is shown to be a motley collection of public relations flacks (many without any background in science) funded by rich and powerful titans within the energy industry. After watching the film, it is impossible to give any credence whatsoever to the controversy of whether or not global warming exists, and clearly this is one more undeniable example of Big Business's 'War on Science'.

Fun Fact- The Koch Brothers have given over $67,042,064 to groups denying climate change science since 1997.
