Greedy Lying Bastards

Greedy Lying Bastards is a documentary by Craig Rosebraugh looking at global warming, its causes and consequences, and the enormous oil industry funding of the climate change deniers. The film contends that the fossil fuel corporations, and the Koch Brothers in particular, are spending tens of millions of dollars to make sure that there is no government policy that affects their profits, even if the long-term health of the planet is at stake. It is a sobering look at the state of money in politics, though if you are an environmentalist or a political news junkie, most of what Rosebraugh is showing is not really shocking, just disgusting.
