After a missed opportunity to show this film in broad distribution while the 2015 Paris climate conference was in full swing and climate interest high, it seems the film “Climate Hustle” might actually get a showing, if for only one night. For months we’ve been told “coming soon”, with a Fall 2015 release and it seems the wait just kept getting longer and longer. I have not been able to see the film, so I can’t comment on whether it’s good or bad. All I can say is that it’s way past overdue. Here’s the latest PR:
CFACT Inks Deal with SpectiCast to Bring Skeptical “Climate Hustle” Film to Theaters Nationwide May 2, for a One-Night Event
(March 21, 2016) CFACT and CDR Communications, in partnership with Event Cinema provider SpectiCast, are pleased to announce the release of “Climate Hustle,” a one-night engagement in theaters nationwide on May 2, 2016 that debunks the myths and hype about man-made global warming in an informative and entertaining style. The film will be shown in over 500 theaters in an estimated 200 markets nationwide. Additional details, including a very special bonus event featuring a newsworthy name, will be released very soon.
On the heels of Earth Day (April 22nd) and the opening of the signing of the Paris Agreement on climate change at the United Nations, the “Climate Hustle” May 2 event examines the question of whether there is a genuine scientific consensus about alleged man-made global warming. With more than 30 scientists and experts featured, the film reveals the history of climate scares, examines the science on both sides of the debate and digs into the politics and media hype surrounding the issue. It has been called “brutal and extremely funny” by National Review and “dynamite” by Breitbart News.
“Climate Hustle” is hosted by award-winning investigative journalist Marc Morano. A former communications director for the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, Morano is publisher of CFACT’s ClimateDepot.com, one of the world’s top sources for scientific information skeptical of climate alarm.
“‘Climate Hustle’ is an extremely timely film, especially given the relevant political discussion surrounding global warming,” said Mark Rupp, Co-founder and President of SpectiCast Entertainment. “We feel it is important to share all viewpoints on the climate change issue and ‘Climate Hustle’ provides a perspective not generally shared with the public at large in an informative and engaging way.”
David Rothbard, Executive Producer of the film and President of CFACT, said “The issue of global warming is certainly a ‘hot’ topic and what better way to educate the public than through a film that presents a much-needed perspective based on hard science with a humorous tone.” Added Chris Rogers, Director of “Climate Hustle” and President of CDR Communications, “In the midst of this year’s election, it is of the utmost importance that voters hear both sides of this much-hyped issue, in order to make more educated decisions about climate and energy policies that will affect generations to come.”
“Climate Hustle” will be shown as a one-night event on May 2, 2016 in 500 theaters nationwide. For locations and tickets (available soon) and more information visit www.ClimateHustle.com.
