BRIGHT GREEN LIES dismantles the illusion of green technology in a bold and shocking exposé, revealing the lies and fantastical thinking behind the notion that solar, wind, electric cars, or green consumerism will save the planet. Almost every major environmental organization is pushing for so-called renewable energy. Claims are being made about "green" technologies that are frankly untrue. Words like "clean", "free", "safe", and "sustainable" are often thrown around. But solar panels and wind turbines don't grow on trees. The mass production of these technologies requires increased mining, industrial manufacturing, habitat destruction, massive greenhouse gas emissions, and the creation of toxic waste. So-called renewable energy does not even deliver on its most basic promise of reducing fossil fuel consumption. On a global scale, the energy is stacked on top of what is already being used..

Anti Renewables, anti capitalists and the solution is less industrialization
Their views on the deceit that is most renewables options (solar, wind and biomas) is accurate regarding their manufacturing, their carbon foot prints, their consumption of the earths minerals and resources. The point they make is that we are using too much electricity and food generation and consumerism are to blame. On hydro, they are frankly wrong. There are no no-impact electrical energy options.Then it gets into the real point of the documentary. A lot less industrialization, a lot less use of the soil for food, a lot less consumerism. Not a single references to some of the wild facts they state. Basically an Extinction Rebellion type argument.Where it really falls down is in the lack of "real" solutions presented. How to feed the current number of people on earth, no solutions provided. We know that if we massively moved to a plant based diet then the planet would be worse that it is now for example. How to heat homes without electricity, no solutions provided. Employment or should I say unemployment, well lets not go there. Power generation from nuclear, they don't even discuss that option.
Short sighted, overly negative
This was laughably nonsense at points, especially when they said "we've done without electricity for 100s of thousands of years so why do we need it now". Try saying that when you've hurt yourself and youre at the hospital and there's no power for the life support machine! The point of renewables is that while they're not perfect they're better than fossil fuels and once they are in mainstream use their processes and technologies will be refined and improved to make them steadily more sustainable and efficient. Everything ever invented starts in a crude form and gets slowly more refined if people adopt it and renewables are no different! The only real thing worth listening to in this film in my opinion was the notion of ridiculously high levels of consumption which is the fundamental unsustainable aspect of our world and which is driving our problems. I found these documentary makers, although passionate, had an overly negative and defeatist mindset and muddled a number of issues together into one when they needed to beak down and analyse them separately.
Bright Green Lies are being replaced with ecocentric half truths
For anyone that is not aware of what it takes to produce solar panels and wind turbines this movie is definitely going to be an eye opener. A lot of people will have a hard time listening to the ecocentric argument made here, the first 10 minutes are probably the hardest. But this is to be expected since "radical environmentalists" are among the least understood of all contemporary opposition movements. But as Dr. Seuss wrote: "I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues..."The problem once again is that the environmentalists being interviewed do not pose any workable solutions. All of them are anti-establishment some even revolutionists, these convictions make people hard to take serious. There is also a lot of one-sided portrayal of the facts and framing is the modus operandi. A good documentary should provide the viewer with complete and unbiased information, this documentary does not do so.
