A satirical look at climate science under the Trump administration. This 3-minute film examines the fictitious Trump Coal Coalition and the associated theories of Dr. Theodore Droop, the alternate scientist who discovered thermal erectile dysfunction (TED). Rated best U.S. short film and runner-up internationally in the 2017 Climate Comedy Video Competition: “Inside the Greenhouse” (University of Colorado, Boulder).
Like other sustainability organizations that have been disrupted by the election of Donald Trump, Blue Planet United is departing from its usually serious (and hopeful) treatment of the human condition in order to enjoy a little levity. We remain fully committed to science and reason, while acknowledging the legitimate concerns of some Trump supporters. We wish only that President Trump would focus on those legitimate concerns and spend more time uniting, rather than dividing, the people of this fragile blue planet.
