The film references Michael Moore’s film Planet of The Humans, which claims that renewable energy isn't the answer to climate change. We don’t point out all the problems with the film, so if you watch it, we recommend checking the facts via independent sources.

Global CO2 emissions have risen dramatically:

Scientists expect a 3 degree temperature increase will happen even if countries meet their commitments under the Paris climate agreement.

The world is failing to meet Paris Climate Agreement targets.

When trees are burnt, they release a lot of CO2. The idea is to absorb it with new trees, but studies show that this would take around 40-100 years.

200 scientists wrote to the EU, warning that wood creates more emissions than coal, because it’s less efficient to process. Biofuel is not the answer to climate change.

Renewable energy sources emit up to 50g of C02 per kWh, over their lifetime, compared to around 1000g for coal and 475 for natural gas.

Fossil fuel air pollution causes around 3.6 million deaths per year (the IMF estimates that this would have been cut in half with carbon taxes).

An IMF study found that if prices had been corrected in 2015, the world would be very different. Summary and link to study:

Economists agree that if temperatures rise by 3 degrees, it will plunge the world’s economy into a deep depression, or worse.

75% also said that a carbon tax was the most efficient way to tackle climate change.
