Climate catastrophe? Normal solar activity? The end of civilization as we know it?

Cool It is based on the book of the same name and lectures by Bjorn Lomborg, the controversial author of The Skeptical Environmentalist. Acclaimed award-winning filmmaker Ondi Timoner travels the world with Lomborg exploring the real facts and true science of global warming and its impact.

Lomborg is the founder of the economic think tank, Copenhagen Consensus, which brings together the world's leading economists to prioritize major global problems—among them malaria, the lack of potable water and HIV/AIDS—based upon a cost/benefit analysis of available solutions. Amidst the strong and polarized opinions within the global warming debate, Cool It follows Lomborg on his mission to bring the smartest solutions to our energy needs, carbon emissions and other major problems in the world.

  • 5 stars "Made me think. This film illustrates that by stating alternatives to the current trend towards solving environmental issues, one can become demonized and a scapegoat; ironically by those same well-meaning, focused people. Informative, but scary."
