15th Annual United Nations Association Film Festival Features World Premiere of "Greedy Lying Bastards"

Documentary Premiere on Friday, October 19 at the Aquarius Theater

San Mateo, Calif. (I-Newswire) October 18, 2012 - Presidential candidate Mitt Romney may find it easy to mock President Obama about climate change, but filmmaker Craig Rosebraugh, along with executive producer Daryl Hannah, reveal that the subject is nothing to joke about.

With wildfires in the west and "brown-outs" in the east, climate change is no longer a prediction for the future, but a startling reality of today. Farmers continue to lose crops to the worst drought since the Dust Bowl and unusual weather patterns continue to startle us. The U.S. Pentagon believes it to be a matter of national and international security. Yet, as the evidence of our changing climate mounts and the scientific consensus proves a human causation, there continues to be no political action to thwart the warming of our planet.

"Greedy Lying Bastards" documents the impact of an industry that has continually put profits before people, waged a campaign of lies designed to thwart measures to combat climate change, used its clout to minimize infringing regulations and undermined the political process in the U.S. and abroad.

The film investigates the reason behind stalled efforts to tackle climate change, despite a consensus in the scientific community that it is placing the planet on the brink of disaster. "Greedy Lying Bastards" details how the Koch Brothers, along with ExxonMobil, spent over $60 million to dispel claims of global warming, bankrolling the Romney campaign with an estimated $400 million in funding.

The documentary won the 2012 EcoFilm Award at the Boston Film Festival and the 2012 Best Feature Documentary Award at the Burbank Film Festival.
