The Great Global Warning Scare of 1977
#1
Who here remembers watching in Britain or Australia the movie "ALTERNATIVE 3"?
Was it the most dangerous TV program ever?

Global Warming and Climate Change is a Hoax/Scam invented by the Rich to Stay Rich off of Frightened Tax Payers. JMHO

I had never heard of this. Of course, that is me with 99% of things. 

It probably says more about the general public than the people who took it off the air after one showing.

That is Okay.
I never heard of it either, not until I watched that video.
They say there is only one copy of the movie and the director has the original T thin k.

I recall hearing of "Alternative 3" many, many years ago, but I never saw it. I was always under the impression that it had been a failed pilot for a science fiction series.

My question is: how bad would someone think Earth was going to have to get that they would start colonies on a planet where we can't breath the air, and can't grow food in the dirt? How bad would they think Earth was going to get that they would view that as an appealing alternative?

Now THAT is a scary thought! in the billions of years there has been life on earth, Earth has never gotten that bad, and that makes thinking of Mars as a valid alternative a scary thought indeed!

Another thought, and this is straight out of "Total Recall" - if they could hoodwink some folks into a domed colony on Mars, those folks would be under their COMPLETE control. "You don't wanna do as we say? Fine. No more air for you!"

“The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people.”

-Aldous Huxley

This movie was Al Gore's Wet dream. My husband said if Gore seen this movie he would not stand and clap but he would stand and Jerk-Off smiling and laughing with Glee!
Earth was going to be unlivable because of melting ice caps and air pollution, all because of Humans!

Lots of BS in the films "industry".  I was just reading about director Sam Fuller yesterday.  He directed a film called "white dog" which was about a guy who takes on the task of "deprogramming" a dog that has been trained to attack black people (film is not "woke", it is from 1980 or so).  By all reports, it was a great film that examined a lot of ugly issues.

But what happened?  Well, the local NAACP got involved and protested the film's topic, and the film was shelved, never made it to the cinema.

Now, Sam Fuller was no beginner.  Maybe some of you have seen the war film "The Big Red One".  That was one of Fuller's films, a World War II classic.  Probably helped that the events in that film were those he lived as a rifleman in the 1st Infantry Division during that war, which he ended as Corporal Fuller.  Fuller was so pissed off with what they did with the "white dog" film that he became an expatriate in France, only returning when his health failed, and shortly thereafter he passed away.
