Not Evil Just Wrong

October 18, 2009 -- Mark your calendars for a new type of Tea Party to debut "Not Evil Just Wrong" in homes across the fruited plain!

In an email broadcast I received today from Americans for Prosperity:

Two courageous Irish film-makers, Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, have spent 3 years and over $1 million creating a power-packed, entertaining documentary called "Not Evil, Just Wrong" that details the real consequences of draconian global warming "solutions" – both here in the United States and across
the world.

Americans for Prosperity is partnering with Ann and Phelim on a massive grassroots effort to turn the tables on our opponents. On October 18, our coalition will hold the largest premiere of any documentary in American history.

Our goal is simple: on October 18 at 8:00 PM Eastern Time literally tens-of-thousands of grassroots Americans like you and me will hold viewings of their film - Not Evil, Just Wrong - in homes, at local community events, really anywhere where even 2 or 3 Americans can be educated on this crucial issue.

There's a whopper every 15 seconds in this trailer. More junk science.

It claims that Al Gore said sea levels will rise catastrophically, “in the very near future.” Not in his movie, not in his writings or speeches. Not true. That’s a simple misstatement of what Gore said, and Gore had the science right.

The trailer notes the usual claim made by Gore opponents that industry cannot exist if it is clean, that industry requires that we poison the planet. Our experience with Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899, the Clean Air Acts and the Clean Water Act is that cleaning the environment produces economic growth, not the other way around. A city choked in pollution dies. Los Angeles didn’t suffer when the air got cleaner. Pittsburgh’s clean air became a way to attract new industries to the city, before the steel industry there collapsed. Cleaning Lake Erie and the Ohio River didn’t hurt industry.

The trailer shows a kid playing in the surf on a beach. Of course, without the Clean Water Act and other attempts to keep the oceans clean, such play would be impossible. That we can play again on American beaches is a tribute to the environmental movement, and reason enough to grant credence to claims of smart people like Al Gore and the scientists whose work he promotes.
