Michael Moore: Disown Dangerously Misleading Climate Change Documentary

Target: Michael Moore, filmmaker and producer

Goal: Disown and withdraw documentary which makes false claims about green energy.

A new documentary which makes false claims about the honesty and value of green energy initiatives has been released by filmmaker Michael Moore, threatening the public’s ability to discern facts from lies in the effort to combat climate change. The movie contains information which is hopelessly out of date and consists of lies peddled by the fossil fuel industry over ten years ago.

Perhaps the most repugnant argument made in the film is the idea that overpopulated developing countries are to blame. The documentary’s director, Jeff Gibbs, contends that reducing the population will be more beneficial than clean energy, a position often used by white nationalists as a dog-whistle for genocide and anti-immigrant speech.

At a time when the global temperature is still rising dangerously and still not enough has been done to prevent a climate catastrophe, this documentary is the worst kind of irresponsible speech. The mistaken information and outright lies contained within it risk misleading the public just as clarity and unity are most needed. Sign the petition below to demand that Mr. Moore be held to account for this reckless film.


Dear Mr. Moore,

Over the last two decades, you’ve made a name for yourself as a fearless investigator of multiple injustices across the United States, inspiring many young activists to take up vitally important causes. However, your recent film, Planet of the Humans, is a shockingly irresponsible piece of work which contains a myriad of mistakes, inaccuracies, and lies. It will confuse and mislead members of the public just as we now have our last chance to fight climate change successfully.

I therefore demand that you disown this film and work to discourage its message.
