    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.

    What Craig Scott Rosebraugh's film lacks in originality, it makes up for in comprehensiveness.

    What’s fresh here is the tone – rude, blunt and bordering on shrill. This is a less in-your-face Michael Moore-style take on this subject.

    Craig Rosebraugh’s docu Greedy, Lying Bastards covers ground well-traveled by environmental exposes from “An Inconvenient Truth” to “The Island President.” Rosebraugh, however, focuses less on the issue of global warming itself and more on the deniers and their big-money backers.

    Collated for momentum, the film’s many interviews, wide-ranging archival footage and montage of modern ecological disasters form a blunt but carefully positioned instrument. And despite a bit of Michael Moore-style nonsense at the end the tightly edited narrative displays a reach (nine countries) and clarity of composition that hold the attention.

    Filled with devastating statistics documenting the devastating effects of climate change on the planet, the film takes particular aim at CEOs, or “greedy lying bastards,” of the oil and gas corporations which are contributing to the crisis.

    The lies of "Lying Greedy Bastards" exposed: even the world's leading authority, IPPC says you are of full of s**t! In March of 2012, theThe lies of "Lying Greedy Bastards" exposed: even the world's leading authority, IPPC says you are of full of s**t! In March of 2012, the IPCC released a special report (google search terms "IPCC SREX 2012") on extreme weather events and its relationship to added atmospheric CO2. The result: it isn't in the evidence (Google the University of Colorado at Boulder's "Roger Pielke, Jr" for his critical distillation that the IPCC got it right "SREX Pielke" will do).

    Furthermore, the Washington Post had to retract the claim that greed motivates the global warming "denialists," because the documented funds for it amount 1% to one-tenth of one percent of the global warming alarmists. Juliet Eilperin (a senior reporter with her husband working for Big Enviro-alarmists in DC a BIG conflict of interest), tried to report "facts" like "Greedy Lying Bastards" does, and the Wash Post was forced into running a correction because both Eilperin was wrong. In fact so wrong that she was soon relieved of her environmental news beat.

    Finally, last December, the IPCCs next (the Fifth Assessment) Report was leaked, showing that global temperatures have flatlined for the last fifteen years, all while man-made CO2 emissions increase at record rates. This means that IPPC models are all wrong: the 30 year warming rates are below the LOWEST predicted level, and nearest those that required maximum CO2 emissions abatement.

    Thus, the lies of "Lying Greedy Bastards" is in tatters before you as wrong, wrong, and wrong and therefore complete bad bulls**t.
