Filmmaker “shunned” by left-wing peers for questioning climate change policies

Last week I went to a film about climate change, because that’s my thing. And I brought my camera to talk with the filmmaker, because that’s what I do.

The film is called “The Uncertainty Has Settled”, and the screening was hosted by Friends of Science.

But this wasn’t your typical climate change documentary. It was made by an independent Dutch filmmaker who spent years documenting conflict and poverty in Africa.

Marijn Poels went back to Europe to reflect when he noticed something troubling happening in the west – and that troubling thing was energy policy.

It’s an incredible film about what happens when European farmers get more money for planting wind turbines and bio-fuels than for growing crops and livestock.

But what troubled Marijn more than the climate poverty and lack of local food is the lack of debate.

Marijn describes himself as a liberal, but the reaction he received from his left wing friends and colleagues was shocking.

You can find Marijn’s film, “The Uncertainty has Settled” on his Vimeo page, or at his website.

Climate change policies have unintended consequences. Sometimes it means farmers produce less food, and in Marijn’s case, it means you find out who your friends really are.

I am so reminded in Poels’ case of Plato’s famous “Allegory Of The Cave”… It is always stunning to realize you have been looking at “shadows”… And the more dimple-bum lefties experience that in their lifetimes, the better off society will be…

Better late than never in this case… When Poels said “there is another perspective” he was doomed… I suspect the scenario from now on will be that of one traditional leftie starting to take a hard look at what he has believed up to now; he’ll have to say goodby to some so-called former friends, and, he will emerge at the far end of this search, a much, much more enlightened man… And better yet, he will never be able to go back on what he has learned..
