Himself (Sierra Club):
The world's climate scientists tell us that the highest safe level of emissions would be around 350 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere. We are already at 400. They tell us that the sort of savest we could hope to do without having perilous implications - as far as drought, famine, human conflict major, species extinction - would be about 2°C increase in temperature. We're rapidly approaching that, and with all the CO2 that's already in the atmosphere we're easily going exceed that. So, ...

Be prepared to get blown away by the SHOCKING truth that world leaders, charities and even the BIGGEST environmental organizations don't have the courage or willpower to address.

Whether you believe in climate change or not, this movie will appeal to everyone who enjoys learning about powerful institutions being dishonest and misleading to the public in order to protect profits. And after watching this movie it becomes clear that those 'promoting' the climate change train of thought are not BEING HONEST about the true causes and sources of green house gasses! Another great thing about this movie is the clever animation cuts that offer the viewers not only a great experience but also chance to end up feeling much more knowledgeable with some new seriously interesting facts! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. HIGHLY RELEVANT.
