Die Akte Klima - Umweltverbrechen und Vertreibung im Namen des Klimaschutzes
Climate change is considered to be the biggest risk to nature and mankind. The battle against it is the dominant topic of our times. The environmental organisations have elevated it to the number one priority, and the international community of nations is hoping to halt climate change by spending 100 billion dollars per year. But what is happening to this money? Do the projects actually protect people and nature? In «Climate Crimes» the film makers investigate climate protection and discover some distressing facts: away from global conferences and fine words, destructive mega projects are masqueraded as climate protection. Farmers who no longer produce any food, but instead grow gigantic monocultures with maize, great apes in Indonesia, whose basic of existence, the rain forest, is being destroyed by palm oil plantations ... A film that runs contrary to the zeitgeist of climate protection.
