CPAC interview with Phelim McAleer, Ann McIlhenny

posted at 10:30 am on February 13, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

I first met Phelim McAleer and Ann McIlhenny two years ago at CPAC when they introduced their seminal documentary Not Evil Just Wrong, a hard look at the environmental movement and the damage it does through bad science and political chicanery.  They’re easily the most fun interview guests to book at events like CPAC and AFP’s Right Online series (coming to Minneapolis in June!), because neither holds much back and both have such a passion for their work.  In fact, they have such passion for their work that shortly after completing this interview, they got challenged by an enviro activist in the corridor next to the Townhall booth, and the debate created such a ruckus — which you’ll see briefly later in another interview I was doing right after this one — that hotel security showed up and demanded an end to the ad hoc debate.

No ruckus here, but as always, I had a lot of fun with Phelim and Ann.  We’ve featured a couple of the “Hypocrite” short films here at Hot Air, most recently regarding Robert Redford.  If you have a nomination for an envirocrite to make the, er, hug list, be sure to go to the  Not Evil Just Wrong website and submit your suggestion.

I have a bit of a problem just calling it wrong. The outcome so far has included millions of additional malarial deaths. If the anti-carbon based energy groups get their way it will involve millions of more deaths. That is evil in my book. It would be like calling Hitler, Stalin & Mao were wrong but not evil.

That was a terrific line about the dairrhea ribbon. Every other human malady especially if it relates to sexuality is discussed and pardoned without self-conscious need of shame.
Some of the enviro-whackoish positions are certainly evil when it comes to overpopulation, abortion, and euthanasia.

Still nothing on HotAir regarding YAF purging Ron Paul from its advisory board?

Shame shame

Cool. Thanks for introducing/keeping me updated. Really a fan of both.

Hey Ed, you should have interviewed this guy while you were there. A good solid view of the Muslim Brotherhood in America from a GOP Muslim Honcho. Watch these “republicans” spike Alan Wests cannons.

You are so right. It would be great to talk about why what they did was such a great move.
