“Greedy Lying Bastards” Exposes Big Oil’s Dirty Secret

“Greedy Lying Bastards” Exposes Big Oil’s Dirty Secret

Over the past month, the Occupy Wall Street protests have brought the reality of corporate dishonesty to the forefront of the American consciousness.

In what seems like perfect harmony with the current sentiments of the Occupiers, filmmaker and political activist Craig Rosebraugh has announced the 2012 release date of his unapologetic documentary, “Greedy Lying Bastards.”

The film follows Rosebraugh as he documents the impact of a fossil fuel industry that puts profits before people, wages a campaign of lies to thwart measures to combat climate change, uses its clout to minimize infringing regulations and sustain unnecessary federal subsidies that are crushing the economy.

By interweaving the stories of the victims of the Gulf oil spill and the global climate crisis, the film lays bare the industry’s deliberate pattern of irresponsibility. More than a year after the tragic Deepwater Horizon explosion, documentary shows how Gulf Coast residents continue to suffer. Settlements promised by BP are proving largely insufficient and thousands of claims remain outstanding.

“This film is an investigation into an industry that is simply out of control,” Rosebraugh contends. “The fossil fuel industry has shown that it will stop at nothing to maximize profits for shareholders, whether it’s cutting corners on safety, employing highly paid lobbyists to impact the political process, giving huge amounts to climate change deniers to ensure that no legislation is passed that would impact the bottom line, or complicity in the murder of individuals who speak up against environmental degradation.”

Everything hidden is being revealed. The highest form of morality is to use new information to maintain, enhance inner peace, and regain coherence with the world. THRIVE is an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what's REALLY going on. It follows money upstream - uncovering global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives. Weaving breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, THRIVE offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future.

Agree strongly, any time a new technology is introduced it threatens big oil's many lucrative interests? (Those corrupt politicians who are absolutely above any law begin to sweat big time) Thus, this new cool technology is soon suppressed and the patent filed away forever. Happens every time man, that is why we remain dependent to this foreign oil jazz and will until we virtually run out this highly pollutant stuff.

As for those advances that would eventually wean us off this unsustainable and temporary oil stuff, would come to Nott...

In conclusion, if our world operated in the same fashion as that binary world "{machine language} we would have already reached a form of Utopia decades ago without any help from anything or one above...
