Environmental Film Festival: Greedy Lying Bastards
|Event||Environmental Film Festival: Greedy Lying Bastards|
|When||Monday, March 18, 2013 from 7:30pm to 10:00pm|
What happens when one industry has too much power? Politicians become pawns. Laws are created, prevented and sometimes broken. Regulations are bypassed. Information is controlled. Dissent is stifled. The climate changes, and people die.
This film presents a searing indictment of the influence, deceit, and corruption that defines the fossil-fuel industry. From the Gulf Coast to the tiny nation of Tuvalu, from Nigeria and Uganda to Peru and Alaska, this film documents the impact of an industry that has continually put profits before people, waged a campaign of lies designed to thwart measures on climate change, used its clout to minimize infringing regulations, and undermined the political process in the United States and abroad. Directed and produced by Craig Rosebraugh. Executive Producer: Darryl Hannah.
