Hide & Seek: Media Keep Burying Mike Moore’s Planet of the Humans & Bloggers Keep Digging It Up

Mike Moore’s Planet of the Humans has incensed renewable energy rent seekers, climate cultists and the mainstream media, alike. Its narrative – that subsidised renewable energy is just a playground for crony capitalists and the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time – doesn’t sit well with the tribe who would have us believe we’re all on the brink of an ‘inevitable transition’ to running on nothing but sunshine and breezes.

However, if you haven’t already taken the opportunity to see it, trying to do so is like a perpetual game of hide and seek.

STT first covered it here: Blood & Gore: Mike Moore’s ‘Planet of The Humans’ Unmasks The Power & Money Behind Renewables Scam

The film had its debut on YouTube about six weeks ago, and while available on that platform clocked up over 8 million views.

Thereafter – As JoNova details below – those with skin in the game made sure that YouTube pulled Moore’s film. Following which it briefly had a run on Vimeo, until the ‘money’ moved and forced that site to pull the film, as well.

Not to be outdone by a cynical and censorious cabal of rent seeking interest groups, Mike Moore uploaded Planet of the Humans to another site, Bitchute; where it’s available (for now). Click on the image above and you can follow through to Bitchute and catch it there.

Our editorial team has been working overtime fixing links in the numerous posts we’ve published covering Mike Moore’s movie. And we intend to keep doing so, notwithstanding that we suspect Facebook has been messing with our homepage, simply because we had the temerity to keep providing access to the film.

Youtube censorship gone wild removing Michael Moore’s documentary

Michael Moore’s Planet of the Humans racked up 8 million views in a month, then when they extended the free views for another month, YouTube finally found a reason to shut it down.

Apparently 4 seconds of video isn’t “fair use” in a documentary any more, and thus for copyright reasons, the video got pulled. If Youtube took down every 4 second violation of copyright there’d be no Youtube. Which may be about to happen anyway, when the young hip revolutionary teens realize the conglomate power is heavily censoring their access to “news” in order to fool them into obedience for corporate profit.

It’s so predictable. A month ago, Myron Ebell, CEI, said “Quick. Watch it before it’s banned”.

Everytime Youtube does this it makes it easier for a competitor to take their top spot. Bring it on.

Moore put it on Vimeo, but searching there finds nothing too. Has Vimeo been “got to”?

Doesn’t matter, because Moore’s now moved to Bitchute. https://www.bitchute.com/video/KQnVEMOOYuJd/

Long live Bitchute.

The documentary was banned by the film distributors right from the start, but when people started tweeting “now that it’s banned, I want to see it” they reversed their decision. But there are many ways to ignore something without actually banning it. So a big Thank You to Youtube for being so cack-handed. This will make both the documentary and Bitchute more popular.

For Michael Moore, this must be an eye opening transition as he falls from Green-Left Grace to become just another of the unspoken untermensch. For him, it might be the first time he really wakes up to the weapons grade corporate power that may have thought he was fighting previously. A Red Pill day. At this point he either does something grovelling to claw back to his former position (but they won’t trust him), or this move pushes him far into skeptic-land. Many a great skeptic is borne from the claws of Censorship.

It may also open some eyes among other namecalling lefty editors, like those on Deadline who still use the petty “deniers” label.

‘Planet Of The Humans’ EP Michael Moore & Director Jeff Gibbs Blast “Blatant Censorship”

The documentary, especially coming from the unassailably left-wing Moore and Gibbs and not right-wing climate-change deniers, was bound to provoke a strong reaction. Among the environmental champions leading the charge against Planet of the Humans has been Josh Fox, the Oscar-nominated director of Gasland. Fox led an earlier campaign on Twitter to get the docu “retracted by its creators and distributors,” calling the film “shockingly misleading and absurd.”

The effort by Fox triggered its own backlash, with the writers organization PEN America labeling it attempted censorship. In his statement to Deadline, Gibbs once against decried any attempt to keep the film from reaching the public.

Here is Gibbs’ full statement to Deadline:

This attempt to take down our film and prevent the public from seeing it is a blatant act of censorship by political critics of Planet of the Humans. It is a misuse of copyright law to shutdown a film that has opened a serious conversation about how parts of the environmental movement have gotten into bed with Wall Street and so-called “green capitalists.” There is absolutely no copyright violation in my film. This is just another attempt by the film’s opponents to subvert the right to free speech.

Opponents of Planet of the Humans, who do not like its critique of the failures of the environmental movement, have worked for weeks to have the film taken down and to block us from appearing on TV and on livestream. Their efforts to subvert free speech have failed, with nearly eight and a half million people already viewing the film on YouTube. These Trumpian tactics are shameful, and their aim to stifle free speech and prevent people from grappling with the uncomfortable truths exposed in this film is deeply disturbing.

PEN America, which was founded in 1922 and fights for the free speech of artists in the U.S. and around the world, came out strongly and denounced the initial attempt to censor this film, and we hope all champions of free expression condemn this act of censorship. We are working with YouTube to resolve this issue and have the film back up as soon as possible.”

My thought on Planet of the Humans: It’s like someone read all the major skeptic blogs in the world on renewables and turned them into a documentary. Shame though he still sees humans and fossil fuels as a plague on the planet. One step at a time.

Welcome to the Deplorables club Michael Moore.

Myron Ebell, Competitive Enterprise Institute describes the film:

Much of the analysis is taken from a 2012 book, Green Illusions: The Dirty Secrets of Clean Energy and the Future of Environmentalism by Ozzie Zehner, who was a co-producer of the film and gives a key interview in it.

A better title for the film would be, The Luddite Left Eats the Climate Industrial Complex. Every type of green energy is exposed as phony, useless, and inextricably dependent on fossil fuel production and large-scale hardrock mining. The targets include wind power, solar power, ethanol, biomass, battery storage, electric vehicles, and seaweed. After revealing the manifold shortcomings in each type of renewable energy, Gibbs, who narrates the film, remarks, “It was enough to make my head explode. I was getting the uneasy feeling that green energy was not going to save us.”

The film also goes after the leading green energy promoters and profiteers. Bill McKibben of 350.org is the leading target, but Al Gore, Michael Brune and the Sierra Club, Michael Bloomberg, Goldman Sachs, Elon Musk and Tesla, Arnold Scwarzenegger, the Nature Conservancy, Vinod Khosla, the Union of Concerned Scientists, Van Jones, Richard Blood, and Jeremy Grantham are also featured. And—of course—the Kochs.

    Your initial statement is excellent!

    I translated and reblogged it on https://www.eike-klima-energie.eu/
    Michael Moores Film – mehrfach blockiert, doch noch immer wieder zu sehen
    Thank you

    You either have free speech, or you don’t!

    • Jacqueline Rovensky says:

      I agree, unfortunately what is happening is there is ‘free speech’ , but not for people who have a different understanding and thoughts with respect to energy production.
      What people who have different educated thoughts and considerations on this matter have to say is considered heresy and has to be stamped out.
      It seems Dictatorship is being promoted above Freedom of thought and the right to express it and is considered unacceptable to those who put their own financial and ideological interests above the welfare of the worlds people and its environment.

      • Crispin bpm says:

        There is hope Jacqueline, especially with young free thinking minds like Naomi Seibt. However, YouTube could prove to be the weakest link in the chain. I’m hearing a lot of negativity about the platform. I hope they have second thoughts. I like using it. I learned how to unblock a toilet the other day! And the method worked, to my amazement.

        Let’s hope they don’t flush themselves down the pan!

  3. Whenever linking to a 3rd party site with video subject to removal save yourself fixing links by creating only one page for it, link all new stories you create to that page on your site for readers to see the video, then when it changes you only have one page to update. It is one extra step for the reader as they then bounce once rather than go direct to the video host but is worth it and as a secondary benefit to you reinforces your product.

    Here is an example of how I did it.


    I even left reference to the sites that took it down which makes it look bad for them though that’s like sneezing at Godzilla and yet in these days of world wide hysteria that would be thought of as being able to take him down. In that note one might consider the research of David Crowe at https://theinfectiousmyth.com/book/CoronavirusPanic.pdf and compare sales pitches between virus hunting and fake clean energy as both consume too much of our energy.
