While COVID restrictions continue to make it difficult for CFACT students to host in-person events, CFACT’s Driessen Fellow at Catholic University in Washington DC, Joe Frederick, wasn’t going to let that stop him from making a difference at his school.
In order to counter the pseudoscience and misinformation surrounding climate change coming from the media and classrooms, Joe decided to host a virtual watch party of CFACT’s groundbreaking documentary, Climate Hustle, which originally aired in 2016 at theaters across the nation for a one-night showing.
While the sequel, Climate Hustle 2, premiered recently, Joe went with the first movie, which gives more of an introduction to the science. A showing of the sequel may be in the works soon.
“Everyone present really enjoyed the movie and found out new things that they did not previously know about the lies of big environment,” Joe said about the event, adding, “Climate Hustle is a great documentary about the truth about environmental issues that doesn’t take itself so seriously that it becomes boring. Something that surprised me was that the 97% consensus was actually a survey of only 97 scientists and only 95 responded, the blatant misrepresentation of statistics by the left is deeply concerning and it is all the more important that we do the work we do to expose them.”
In addition to debunking the so-called “consensus” over climate change, Climate Hustle also debunks climate alarmism at every level; from explaining how CO2 is not the sole “control knob” of the temperature, to showing the data behind extreme weather the Left doesn’t want you to know.
The movie showing is especially relevant given the recent blackouts taking place in Texas. Leftists are scrambling trying to place the blame on coal and gas-fired power plants for the outages, rather than the record cold that caused the large amount of wind turbines that Texas energy unfortunately depends on to fail.
Texas gets 10% of it’s power from wind turbines, and as the cold froze the turbines, the sudden lack of power was too much for the grid to handle. While there were some issues with getting some of the backup power going, much of that is because Texas was not expected to need these sources for another year or more, and they weren’t prepared.
Wind and solar can play a part in local power generation, but to mandate them at high levels in an industrialized economy is a recipe for disaster. After viewing Climate Hustle, these students are now armed with the facts and ready to dispel any climate and energy misinformation they encounter!
