Two of McAleer and McElhinney past films have been dubbed anti-environmental by critics.

The film “Mine Your Own Business,” according to Wikipedia, “is a 2006 documentary… about the Rosia Montana mining project in Romania… The film presents foreign environmentalists as alien agents opposed to progress, while residents are depicted as eagerly awaiting the new opportunity.”

The film “Not Evil, Just Wrong,” according to Wikipedia, “is a 2009 documentary film that challenges Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ by suggesting that the evidence of global warming is inconclusive and that the impact global-warming legislation will have on industry is much more harmful to humans than beneficial. The film argues that the science behind climate change science is not settled. ‘Not Evil, Just Wrong’ focuses on the British High Court ruling which found nine errors in Al Gore’s documentary.”
