Cool It

This climate change lecture-cum-documentary focuses almost entirely on the work of Danish economist Bjorn Lomborg, who wrote the 2001 book The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the Real State of the World. Lomborg admits that global warming is happening but kinda thinks it isn't all that big a deal. The film is seen as a moderate response Al Gore's rabble-rousing An Inconvenient Truth--which is perfect if you like your activism wishy-washy and uninspiring. Although it presents a number of simple "solutions" to our environmental woes, Lomborg is an economist rather than a scientist and seems more interested in not spending money than anything else. Still, Lomborg is charismatic and has a few good points. So come on, people, get out there and ... don't bother doing a whole lot. 89 minutes PG.
