On March 15 at Florida State University, JMI held its fourth “Madison Movie Night,” monthly screenings of films or documentaries promoting the message of liberty.The film for this month was a documentary entitled Not Evil, Just Wrong.  It exposed several climate change mistruths that environmental activists use to lobby for greater government control over our lives.  It gave a voice to several prominent scientists who understand that much of the “proof” used in Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth is severely skewed or just flat-out wrong.  It also provided insight into the lives of ordinary families that have been negatively impacted by misguided environmental legislation.Following the film, JMI’s Development Director Francisco Gonzalez led a discussion with the audience about many topics included in and related to the film.  Audience members chimed in with their own bits of wisdom regarding issues such as nuclear power, carbon emissions, and global cooling. Thanks to everyone who came out for the viewing–JMI is very interested in any feedback that attendees may have about the event and encourage you to share your thoughts in the comment section below.  We also welcome comments from others who have seen the film and would like to offer their opinions.
