The Fraser Institute: Help Set a World Record by Hosting a Screening of Not Evil Just Wrong, the Documentary Movie Global Warming Alarmists Don't Want You to See

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2009) - Canadians can help set a new world record for attendance at a movie premiere on October 18 by hosting their own screenings of a new documentary film, Not Evil Just Wrong, that examines the hype and fear-mongering of the environmental movement over global warming.

"The well-financed environmental groups hyping global warming don't want people to see this movie because we clearly expose the overblown rhetoric and false claims behind their environmental doomsday predictions," says Phelim McAleer, co-producer and director of Not Evil Just Wrong.

People who want to host a screening of the documentary and take part in this world-record attempt can obtain copies of the film on DVD and a screening kit at Free public screenings of the documentary are also being sponsored by the Fraser Institute in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, and Ottawa.

Irish filmmaker McAleer along with Ann McElhinney, his co-producer, director, and wife, also made Mine Your Own Business, a documentary that tackled the dark side of environmentalism and its campaign to halt mining development in third world countries.

Since completing Not Evil Just Wrong, the couple has received death threats while environmental groups have urged boycotts of the movie and mainstream Hollywood has ignored the film.

"The mainstream film industry has bought the vision of environmental apocalypse promoted by David Suzuki and Al Gore, so we're using the Internet and encouraging free-thinking people to see the movie wherever they can and to share it with friends," McAleer said.

"The environmental extremists don't want a debate; they don't want a reasoned discussion about climate change. Instead, they put all their efforts into trying to shut down anyone who disagrees with their agenda," McElhinney adds.

Not Evil Just Wrong points out how Canadians' middle-class lifestyles and dreams for their children will be destroyed if the government buys into the hysteria and imposes job-killing regulations on an economy already mired in recession. The film exposes the deceptions about global warming that scientists, politicians, educators, and the media have been force-feeding the public for years, including fear-mongering about floods and dying polar bears. The documentary shows how environmentalists are pushing the same kind of anti-human propaganda that triggered a ban on DDT and condemned millions of children to death by malaria, a story recounted in the documentary. Not Evil Just Wrong asks: Is carbon dioxide the new DDT and are we taking the same risks with our future?

Join us on Sunday, October 18 for the world-record-setting premiere of Not Evil Just Wrong. Help change history as millions of people worldwide watch the film as part of the world's largest simultaneous film premiere party.
