Hollywood accused of climate denial!? STUDY: ‘Only 32 of the Top Movies in the Last Decade Say Climate Change Exists’

IndieWire: Only 9.6 percent of 250 films analyzed passed a Bechdel Test created for climate change. Last month, non-profit group Good Energy launched what it called a Bechdel Test for Climate Change, a simple set of criteria designed to determine if it was clear climate change was present in a film. The real Allison Bechdel even endorsed it.

As part of the “Climate Reality Check,” just three movies nominated for Oscars this year passed the test’s two simple rules: “Climate change exists” and “a character knows it.” Now a more extensive study published by Good Energy and Colby College’s Buck Lab for Climate and Environment has analyzed 250 of the top grossing movies between 2013 and 2022 under the same criteria.

Global warming has been with us for a while now, but only 12.8 percent — 32 of the 250 films studied in that time span — even passed the first criteria saying that climate change exists. Only 24 films, or 9.6 percent, passed both criteria of the test.

Poll: American ‘elites’ support rationing energy, meat to combat climate change By CANDACE HATHAWAY American “elites” say they would support the rationing of energy and meat to “fight climate change,” according to a recently released poll by the Committee to Unleash Prosperity. The January study, “Them vs. U.S.: The Two Americas and How the Nation’s Elite Is Out of Touch with Average Americans,” is based on two […]

National Geographic: The enormity of the global climate crisis is so vast that individual actions may seem meaningless…But critics argue that focusing on your carbon footprint is at best time consuming and at worst meaningless. Instead, the “climate shadow” has emerged as a more holistic alternative. …

“Everywhere you go, it goes too, tallying not just your air conditioning use and the gas mileage of your car, but also how you vote, how many children you choose to have, where you work, how you invest your money, how much you talk about climate change, and whether your words amplify urgency, apathy, or denial.” …

First coined by Portland, Oregon-based writer Emma Pattee, the climate shadow aims to paint a picture of the full sum of one’s choices—and the impact they have on the planet…The objective is not to create a climate shadow scorecard. Rather, Pattee describes it as “sharing my own spiritual and moral reckoning.”

The larger the shadow—the greater an individual’s impact on doing good for the planet. While your carbon footprint may shrink if you place solar panels on your roof, for example, your climate shadow would, in contrast, grow when talking with your neighbors about your choices.

Critics of carbon footprint calculators argue, for example, that they have been coopted by oil companies to shift blame and attention away from them and on to everyday consumers. “A carbon footprint is a quantitative metric measure of righteousness,” explains Katharine Hayhoe, chief scientist for The Nature Conservancy and a professor at Texas Tech University. “And people use it to feel good about themselves, which we all want to do when we feel fearful, scared, worried, and concerned. But then they turn it into a measure to judge other people.”

Watch: Canadian Environment minister GRILLED on high-carbon travel by himself & ambassador for climate change

Watch "Environment minister GRILLED on high-carbon travel by himself and ambassador for climate change?" on YouTube – — Marc Morano (@ClimateDepot) January 4, 2024

Watch: Morano on Fox & Friends presents the top 4 ‘climate hypocrites’ of 2023 – And the winner is…

Fox News Channel – Fox and Friends – Broadcast December 30, 2023

Rachel Campos-Duffy: Mirror mirror on the wall. Which climate activist was the most hypocritical of them all. Marc Morano, we love him,  he has all the names and he joins us next…So who tops the list of biggest climate Hypocrites this year? Well our next guest can name a few. Climate Depot publisher Marc Morano joins us now in a very snazzy red suit.

Marc Morano: I’m ready to celebrate.  I take award ceremonies very seriously.

Rachel Campos-Duffy: I love it. So who tops this Oscar?

Marc Morano: Climate Hypocrite #4: We start with King Charles. … King Charles, formerly Prince Charles, is issuing climate tipping points and here’s the thing Rachel he has servants reportedly iron his shoelaces, and he travels with a portable toilet. So I think he’s probably the last person on planet Earth who should be lecturing us. 

Climate Hypocrite #3: The UN cop 28 the Climate Summit itself. It had the largest carbon footprint in the history of climate summits. .. As CNN was telling us we needed ‘carbon passports’ to travel — us the unwashed masses –the UN climate was also planning on restricting our meat eating as John Kerry announced he wanted to go after agriculture. But at the UN climate summit,  they were serving wagyu beef, Philly cheese steaks, they had lavish restaurants serving meat. There were no insects on the menu and there was no Bill Gates lab-grown meat either.

Climate Hypocrite #2: Next on the list is before we get to the final winner here is none other than Bill Gates himself. Bill Gates has literally had the world’s largest carbon footprint for years. Gates has a $43 million Oceanfront home and he’s got a $30,000 a month electricity bill again. 

Climate Hypocrite #1: The winner is John Kerry, and John Kerry gets this award easily for the end of 2023. We have to give the number one climate hypocrite award to John Kerry because he stood before Congress at a hearing and was grilled by a Congressman where he repeatedly said ‘I don’t own a private jet,  I’ve never owned a private jet.’ And it wasn’t until about 45 minutes later that a congressman grilled him and said wait a minute, your wife owned private jets for decades and then finally sold them when the negative media came out, and John Kerry was forced to say, ‘Yes my wife owns one. Yes, I’ve flown in HER private jets.’

Morano: An actual positive award to Abigail Disney, the Disney heiress. We’ve got to give her props. She has come out and stopped flying private jets. She is one of the wealthiest heiresses in the world, heir to the Disney fortune. She now wants to ban private jets for the 1% wealthiest people in the world and I say she’s got it right. We need to support Abigail Disney the Disney heiress, because any of these climate rules they come up with should apply to the John Kerrys and the Bill Gates, and King Charles types first. Let’s experiment on them with travel bans, restrictions on meat eating, insect-eating, And only then should we consider these restrictions for the rest of us. Let’s support what the Disney heiress is doing. .. 

Rachel Campos-Duffy: Marc,  I love how you always bring this to our attention. Wishing you a Happy New Year and thanks for joining us with your awesome list.
