Greedy_Lying_Bastards_Sandy_OneGreedy Lying Bastards investigates the climate change misinformation campaign waged by the oil industry and its funded think tanks. The film exposes how a small number of well-paid spokespeople have worked to confuse the public and lawmakers on the issue.

Both ExxonMobil and Koch Industries are identified in the film as two of the worst culprits funding the denial campaign. In addition to exposing the denial campaign, Greedy Lying Bastards tells the stories of those currently impacted by changing climate. These include residents of Kivalina, Alaska who are faced with relocation due to erosion of shorelines caused from rising temperatures and those in Tuvalu facing sea level rise. The film also covers the 2012 wildfires in Colorado, drought in Kansas and Hurricane Sandy.

 

“Provocative, frank and impossible to ignore. And that’s just the title. Craig Rosebraugh, a US filmmaker and political activist, has produced a feature-length documentary that demands to be seen.” – Leo Hickman

We call our House of Commons proceedings Punch and Judy: but the climate-change deniers on Fox News are Punch on steroids. It’s a chilling and depressing picture.” – The Guardian
