The film, Planet of the Humans by socialist Michael Moore, has been taken down by YouTube. All the film does is question the religion of renewable energies, and one would have thought that this would be permitted under even a minimum level of free speech, but no, the film upset the present environmental status quo. That is how bad things are.
“Michael Moore and Jeff Gibbs’s latest documentary film, Planet of the Humans, has been removed from YouTube, where it had been streaming for free. It was taken down following a copyright claim over four seconds of footage contained in the film. Prior to its removal, the video had accumulated more than 8 million views. Produced by Moore and written, directed and produced by Gibbs, Planet of the Humans made the contentious argument that green energy sources, such as wind power and solar power, are ultimately unsustainable. Gibbs provided a statement to Deadline after the film was taken down from YouTube. “This attempt to take down our film and prevent the public from seeing it is a blatant act of censorship by political critics of Planet of the Humans,” he wrote.” It is a misuse of copyright law to shutdown a film that has opened a serious conversation about how parts of the environmental movement have gotten into bed with Wall Street and so-called ‘green capitalists.’” “There is absolutely no copyright violation in my film. This is just another attempt by the film’s opponents to subvert the right to free speech.” “We are working with YouTube to resolve this issue,” Gibbs continued, “and have the film back up as soon as possible.”
