Michael Moore Presents: Planet of the Humans

Michael Moore presents Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares
to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the
battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following
leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green
movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the
wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst
of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s
answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It's too little, too
late.

Removed from the debate is the only thing that MIGHT save us: getting
a grip on our out-of-control human presence and consumption. Why is
this not THE issue? Because that would be bad for profits, bad for
business. Have we environmentalists fallen for illusions, “green”
illusions, that are anything but green, because we’re scared that this
is the end—and we’ve pinned all our hopes on biomass, wind turbines,
and electric cars?

No amount of batteries are going to save us, warns director Jeff Gibbs
(lifelong environmentalist and co-producer of “Fahrenheit 9/11” and
“Bowling for Columbine"). This urgent, must-see movie, a full-frontal
assault on our sacred cows, is guaranteed to generate anger, debate,
and, hopefully, a willingness to see our survival in a new way—before
it’s too late.

- In our obscurity - in all this vastness - there is no hint that
help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to
us.

trying to save.

- No other planet in the solar system is a suitable home for human
beings; it's this world or nothing. That's a very powerful
perception.

- We are in danger of destroying ourselves by our greed and
stupidity. We cannot remain looking inwards at ourselves on a small
and increasingly polluted and overcrowded planet.

The Means by Which COVID-19 Could Cause
Extinction of All Life on Earth
by Guy R McPherson

Abstract
Loss of habitat for human animals on Earth is rapidly approaching.
Shortly after habitat for humans is gone, our species will go extinct.
The likely route by which near-term human extinction will occur
is presented here, taking into account abrupt, irreversible climate
change, the ongoing Mass Extinction Event, and the consequences of
COVID-19.
