559: A Cute Hoor

Bernie, if you're going to play, play to win.

KMO welcomes the Angry Animator, Dermot O'Connor, and Bob Brown, technologist and permaculturalist back to the C-Realm to follow up on KMO's recent conversation with Justin Ritchie about the documentary film, Planet of the Humans. Both Bob and Dermot agree that criticisms of the film have focused on trivial details and ignored the point that windmills and solar panels cannot power industrial civilization at our current level of consumption.

The conversation with Justin Ritchie from C-Realm Podcast 557 concludes in this episode of the C-Realm Vault. The first part of the conversation was pretty tightly focused on a discussion of the movie Planet of the Humans. Here in the Vault, the scope is significantly expanded. KMO gets animated.

557: Planet of the Extraenvironmentalists

KMO welcomes Dr. Justin Ritchie, co-creator of the Extraenvironmentalist Podcast, back to the C-Realm to discuss the controversy around the documentary, Planet of the Humans. The film calls out mainstream environmentalist organizations like the Sierra Club and environmentalist celebrities like Bill McKibben for endorsing feel-good measures which aim at preserving the industrial lifestyle but which are inadequate for sustaining the bioshpere. Critics of the film respond that the criticisms it levels are all based on information that is long out of date.
