    Tiger King, mentioned by Pragmatic a couple of posts ago is quite incredible.

    An extrovert gun toting queer mullet wearing maniac, and his shaven headed toothless tattooed ex con moron beefcake husband run a big cat farm in florida, which has come to the attention of an equally bizarre woman obsessed with rescuing animals, yet herself runs a money making large cat farm and who is rumoured to have fed her absent millionaire husband to her tigers.

    they have become sworn enemies as they each try to sabotage the others kingdom.

    its a journey into the dark depths of american ugliness, nastiness, eccentricity and lunacy and features a cast of the most insane and obsessed bunch of retards imaginable, the owners of the farms, their colleagues, the polyamorous cults they have developed, the employee who had her arm torn off by a tiger and the paying public who pay insane amounts of money to visit these sick establishments.

    its walmart people in all their sick glory.

    its on netflix and its a real treat.

    Tanya Tagaq and Nanook of the North 720p Webrip h264-MVGroup Nanook of the North, a 1922 silent film made by American film-maker Robert J Flaherty, chronicled the traditional ways of the Canadian Inuit just as they were disappearing for ever. It follows the lives of Nanook and his ‘family’ living in some of the harshest landscapes on earth. This version features an entirely new soundtrack by Canadian Inuk throat-singer, Tanya Tagaq, recorded in association with The Banff Centre, Canada. Part of the Radio 3 Northern Lights season.A little Canadian culture, read elsewhere that this was actually the first documentary filmed. Its not amazing, but interesting. Sorry, links aren't working for me, but pirate bay has it.

    Shadow World reveals the shocking realities of the global arms trade - a business that counts its profits in billions and its losses in human lives (1/2).

    I placed this link here few days ago at the post where somebody claimed how the London banking cannot do what the Hun Sen tries to do. Unfortunately, my post hasn't endured long, off-topic

    It's nice to see how low the curtsy of Iron Lady can go in front of the Saudi King, just to get the contracts for BAE, Tony Bliar will follow the dealing much more efficiently.

    Planet of the Humans review – contrarian eco-doc from the Michael Moore stable

    Jeff Gibbs’ film, produced by Michael Moore, takes a pop at green, liberal A-listers such as Al Gore – but doesn’t dare criticise Greta Thunberg

    Peter Bradshaw

    Recently, petrolhead pundit Jeremy Clarkson was thought to have disgraced himself by pointing out that the hi-tech sea yacht used by Greta Thunberg for her transatlantic crossing, for all its solar panels and underwater turbines, had an old-fashioned diesel engine aboard for emergencies. I thought about Clarkson’s jibe while watching this refreshingly contrarian eco-documentary from environmentalist Jeff Gibbs, which has been uploaded for free online viewing by its executive producer, Michael Moore.

    Gibbs has a cheeky habit of going backstage at music festivals that solemnly declare themselves to be using 100% renewable energy, only to find that the fancy array of solar panels behind the tent is enough to power a single bass guitar. The rest of the energy is provided by just plugging into the shameful old electricity grid, provided by fossil fuels. He sees it as symptomatic of the mainstream environmental movement, running on delusional piety.

    All the green, liberal A-listers – Bill McKibben, Al Gore, Van Jones, Robert F Kennedy Jr – are attacked in this film as a pompous and complacent high-priest caste of the environmental movement, who are shilling for a fossil fuel industry that has sneakily taken them over. (Although it should be said that, for all his radical bravado, Gibbs does not dare criticise Thunberg.)

    Big Oil and its corporate and banking representatives have, according to this film, found a way to rebrand themselves as green or greenish, to use the green movement for their own ends, and to get their mitts on the huge subsidies that taxpayers around the world are handing over to anyone claiming to be developing renewable energy resources, which turn out to be the same old fossil-fuel entities in different packaging.

    Solar panels and wind turbines? These provide no energy when there is no sun or wind and degrade after only a few decades, says Gibbs. And in any case they need a lot of fossil fuels in their manufacture: silicon, cobalt, silver, graphite, rare earths – and of course coal. The same goes for manufacturing storage batteries. Factories claiming to have gone “beyond coal” again and again turn out to be relying on natural gas. Corporate behemoths such as Apple make spurious claims for their energy usage. But how about the ultra-fashionable new “renewable” energy source: biomass or wood-chips? This is basically a colossal logging industry that requires a lot of fossil fuel energy to harvest and transport the material. As Gibbs’ interviewees point out, you might just as well as burn the fossil fuels in the first place. And it is laying waste rainforests and areas of natural beauty.

    This, says Gibbs, is the queasy merger of environmentalism and capitalism – and he makes a refreshingly sceptical case. But he takes it further, suggesting that unfettered capitalism and its insanity of eternal growth on a finite planet is also what is leading us to the cliff edge. True enough, although his comments on overpopulation have an unintentionally ironic chime, in the middle of the Covid-19 outbreak.

    Most chillingly of all, Gibbs at one stage of the film appears to suggest that there is no cure for any of this, that, just as humans are mortal, so the species itself is staring its own mortality in the face. But he appears to back away from that view by the end, saying merely that things need to change. But what things and how?

    It’s not at all clear. I found myself thinking of Robert Stone’s controversial 2013 documentary Pandora’s Promise, which made a revisionist case for nuclear power: a clean energy source that (allegedly) has cleaned up its act on safety and really can provide for our wholesale energy needs without contributing to climate change, in a way that “renewables” can’t.

    Gibbs doesn’t mention nuclear and – a little lamely, perhaps – has no clear lesson or moral, other than the need to take a fiercely critical look at the environmental establishment. Well, it’s always valuable to re-examine a sacred cow.

    Michael Moore Drops New Documentary on Climate Change ‘Planet of the Humans’
    Film marks directorial debut for long-time Moore collaborator Jeff Gibbs

    Michael Moore has released a new documentary on climate change from director Jeff Gibbs, Planet of the Humans; it will be available to watch on YouTube for free for the next 30 days. Moore served as an executive producer on the film, which first screened at the Traverse City Film Festival last August.

    The documentary pointedly arrives the day before the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, April 22nd. Its focus is not just the devastating effects of climate change — it also offers a critical view of the ways in which, per a press release, “the environmental movement has lost the battle through well-meaning but disastrous choices, including the belief that solar panels and windmills would save us, and by giving in to the corporate interests of Wall Street.”

    Planet of the Humans was initially slated for a wider release later this year, but Moore and Gibbs said they decided to release it now, in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, in the hopes of getting people to reflect on “the role humans and their behavior have played in our fragile ecosystem.” To coincide with the film’s release, Moore shared a new episode of his Rumble podcast, featuring Gibbs and the film’s producer Ozzie Zehner. Moore and Gibbs will also host two livestreamed Q&A sessions Tuesday, April 21st, one at 8 p.m. ET and another at 8 p.m. PT, on YouTube and Facebook Live.

    “We have ignored the warnings and instead all sorts of so-called leaders have steered us away from the real solutions that might save us,” Moore said in a statement. “This movie takes no prisoners and exposes the truth about how we have been led astray in the fight to save the planet, to the point where if we don’t reverse course right now, events like the current pandemic will become numerous, devastating and insurmountable. The feel-good experience of this movie is that we actually have the smarts and the will to not let this happen — but only if we immediately launch a new environmental uprising.”

    Planet of the Humans marks Gibbs’ directorial debut, although he’s a long-time collaborator of Moore’s, having co-produced Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11. Moore’s last directorial effort was 2018’s Fahrenheit 11/9, which examined the rise of President Donald Trump.

    Well I watched it...every bit of it. My conclusion, humanity is delusional. Good luck.

    If you have any empathy for the natural world, the ending with the orangutans will fuck you up. I know that's what it was designed to do and it worked.

    The answer will doubtless be more straightforward than trying to work out what on earth that sentence means.

    Got this from KAT and watched the first one yesterday.

    One of the scariest things about it was the incompetence of the bite mark 'expert'.

    All this in a country with the death penalty...
