Hypocrite! Climate change evangelist Leonardo DiCaprio with his private jet!

Green billionaires are pouring money into discreet campaigns to persuade Hollywood writers to catastrophise the climate in future film and television scripts.

One of their main vehicles is Good Energy, which tells writers that showing anger, depression, grief or other emotion in relation to the climate crisis, “can only make characters more relatable”.

Good Energy is funded by numerous billionaire foundations including Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Sierra Club and the Climate Emergency Fund.

Good Energy aims to weave climate alarm into all types of film-making, “especially” if the films are not directly about climate.

It’s Mission Statement reads as follows:

“We support TV and film creators in telling wildly entertaining stories that honestly reflect the world we live in now—a world that’s in a climate crisis. We aim to make it as easy as possible to portray the climate crisis on-screen in entertaining and artful ways, in any storyline, across every genre.”

The problem is, we are not currently living – or ever likely to live – during a time of a ‘climate crisis’. Therefore, Good Energy is clearly not honestly reflecting “the world we live in.” They are simply trying to make money by promoting fear in the community – and film and TV producers and many IQ-challenged actors are supporting their lies.

Most credible scientists now agree that climate change is perfectly normal and nothing to be fearful of – just sensibly managed. A growing number are also pointing out the FACT that carbon dioxide (CO2) is actually good for the planet and is helping it to ‘green’ as can be seen in the image below.

Even the co-founder of the extreme-left Greenpeace environmental group, Patrick Moore, now Chairman and Chief Scientist of Ecosense Environmental says the climate change messaging isn’t based in fact.

“The whole thing is a total scam. There is actually no scientific evidence that CO2 is responsible for climate change,” he said.

Despite all that, with the support of Bloomberg, Good Energy recently publishedA Playbook for Screenwriting in the Age of Climate Change. It claims the Playbook is “now the industry’s go-to guide to incorporating climate into any storyline or genre”.

As with almost all green campaigning groups, Good Energy would not exist without the support of billionaire funding.

These operations seek a supra-national collectivist Net Zero solution to a claimed climate emergency. Good Energy acknowledges it would not exist without this funding.

A spokesperson for Good Energy said recently, “As collaborators and champions, each has provided a unique contribution for which we are endlessly grateful”.

Announcing the launch of the ‘Playbook’, Bloomberg Philanthropies, the tax-efficient ‘charity’ channel for distributing the wealth of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, noted that “accurate and relatable storytelling about climate impacts and solutions can grow public support and motivate decision makers”.

Billionaire foundations are grooming populations around the world by funding a variety of press, political and academic operations.

Most significant non-profit bodies seeking to stop the use of hydrocarbons are funded from these sources.

Good Energy has some relevant advice for writers to normalise climate friendly actions:

“Let’s reimagine what it looks like for a character to eat a plant-rich diet, attend a protest or upcycle vintage clothes. And if your story requires a yacht, why not make it solar powered?”

That last idea might appeal to super-yacht lover Leonardo DiCaprio, but private planes, the preferred method of transportation for many high-end Hollywood stars, might be a problem.

Hypocrisy a problem with all this? Not according to the Playbook, which quotes climate activist Bill McKibben that “hypocrisy is the price of admission in this battle”.

For plebs, gammons, fly-overs and deplorables, this of course translates as “you do what you are told and radically change your lives – we don’t give a flying flamingo”.

Needless to say, a mere climate crisis is not enough for über-woke luvvies. It is not separate from other critical social issues like racism, sexism, economic injustice and war.

The Playbook notes that “indigenous people are the first climate scientists, and indigenous people are leading us through this climate crisis”. Climate can be a “generative lens with which to view any subject or character”, the Playbook helpfully notes.

Good Energy was started in 2019 and its influence and services seem to be growing within the U.S. west coast film industry. Rolling Stone recently profiled the operation in an article titled ‘How Hollywood is Crafting A New Climate Change Narrative’.

One of Good Energy’s “standout” projects last year was a collaboration with Scott Z Burns on the series Extrapolations for Apple TV+.

This was said to be the first mainstream show centred entirely around climate. In eight interconnected stories over 33 years, it set out to explore how the planet’s changing climate will affect family, work, faith and apparently our very survival as a species. 😉

Rolling Stone reports that Good Energy is “dedicated” to ensuring that within three years, 50% of contemporary television and film will acknowledge their fanciful belief that we are facing Armageddon as a result of climate change.

Hopefully, sensible people will see through this nonsense and not watch the garbage they produce!
