Exposes why nothing much is being done about global warming and its toxic effects, and just which fossil fuel capitalists are profiting from that. Along with the power of propaganda in their bid to control the related national conversation.

It's no longer an inconvenient truth. It is a question of our survival being put at risk by a few wealthy people who are determined to get even wealthier.

The film's structural flaws appear to stem from the lack of access to oil industry titans and the other usual suspects. (To be fair, the filmmakers tried.)

Collated for momentum, the film's many interviews, wide-ranging archival footage and montage of modern ecological disasters form a blunt but carefully positioned instrument.

Craig Rosebraugh is clearly out to take no prisoners in his timely documentary tracking the politics, inconvenient truths and alternative "realities" of the endless global warming debate.

In Rosebraugh's uncompromising hands, it plays out like a strident screed for those already burning with righteous indignation.

A grab bag of environmentally related talking points that never quite congeals into an argument, let alone a prescription.

Condensed and to the point, the film gets its message out and includes a three-step guide on how to get involved.

[It] shines a harsh light on the lengths the energy industry continues to go to in order to head off climate-related legislation-and assure the public there's nothing wrong with continuing to rely on fossil fuels.

If "An Inconvenient Truth" had been made by Michael Moore, it'd look and sound like this.

Next time NY won't be so lucky. A really big storm might kill thousands and leave us under water for months. This film shows us what forces are operating to make that more likely and what must be done to overcome them--starting with the Kochs.

A serious, hard-hitting doc that eviscerates the know-nothings who claim that global warming, if it exists at all, has little to do with the activities of big corporations.
