Michael Moore has released a new documentary on climate change. It will be available to watch on YouTube for free for the next 30 days.

The documentary pointedly arrives the day before the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, April 22nd. Its focus is not just the devastating effects of climate change — it also offers a critical view of the ways in which, per a press release, “the environmental movement has lost the battle through well-meaning but disastrous choices, including the belief that solar panels and windmills would save us, and by giving in to the corporate interests of Wall Street.”

Planet of the Humans was initially slated for a wider release later this year, but Moore and Gibbs decided to release it now, in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, in the hopes of getting people to reflect on “the role humans and their behavior have played in our fragile ecosystem.”

So let’s discuss.
