Film Makers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer spoke at the annual State Policy Network in Portland, Maine.

Over 350 people packed a lunchtime talk by McAleer and McElhinney where they also saw excerpts from Mine Your Own Business.

Blogger Dreckless was there:

Mine Your Own Business

While attending a conference here in Maine, we screened a movie entitled Mine Your Own Business. Directed by Irish filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney, it looks at the dark side of environmentalism by traveling to some of the world’s most economically challenged areas and talking to some of the world’s poorest people about how western environmentalists are campaigning to keep them in poverty because they think their way of life is quaint.

Without question, it is the hardest-hitting, most effective expose of the hypocrisy, arrogance, condescension, and selfishness of the environmental movement I have ever viewed.

Some of the footage they obtained of liberals from the World Wildlife Fund and like-minded organizations is shocking in what it reveals about the liberal mind.

The directors shared with us the challenges they faced in so effectively exposing the environmentalists – including a number of death threats which were so serious that the police became involved.

Mine Your Own Business asks the hard questions of the environmental movement and exposes it for what it is.

I obtained a DVD of the movie and strongly recommend you do, too. Everyone should see this film.
