I watched his film Planet of Humans.Its as one sided as a Netflix documentary. Its from the perspective that we need to control the human population or kill off a huge chunk of it to survive and everything is just a band-aide to make us feel good while filling the pockets of evil capitalists. The film does not take into account the advancements made in the manufacturing of solar panels and wind turbines or the advancements made in their energy production.Or even the advancements made in the lifespan of those things. For example they showed a foot sized field of solar panels and said this powers just ten homes because they operate at 8% efficiency even though solar panels today have operate at 15 to 20%. It doesn't talk about advancements made in batteries. I don't think they ever showed how many homes one of those wind turbines can power verses it's lifespan, cost of maintenance.They did show a bunch of trees being chopped down so that one of these wind turbines can be installed. The film doesn't tell you how much electricity it takes to charge an electric car and how much fossil fuel it takes to burn at the electricity plant to charge an electric car or exactly how much fossil fuel it takes to make the batteries verses how much fossil fuel a normal car burns. This film would be perfect to show in China due to its anti-capitalist and pro-population message.

He got right that biomass fuels do way more harm than good.If you consider chopping down living fresh trees to burn in biomass plant on a daily basis to be bad instead of just using coal,trash or some other already dead stuff to burn into a electricity plant.

I am no man made global warming fairy tale believer but I do realize Michael Moore's films are extremely biased.

I found that panels made me more mindful of reducing unnecessary power consumption.
