If ever a documentary needed Michael Moore's ability to debunk the rich and powerful in his inimitable sardonic style, it's here.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Peter Bradshaw
Guardian
September 26, 2013
It is a splenetic, satiric attack on the formidable PR forces, spurious thinktanks and talking heads being mobilised in the US to attack the idea of man-made global warming.

If you like being hectored, preached at and told you're wrong, then this is the film for you.

Craig Scott Rosebraugh delivers an informative if somewhat self-satisfied expose of climate change deniers, explaining exactly where they get their funding from and how they are determined to dupe the public despite the devastating consequences.

This film is an awful warning and awful fun at one and the same time.

A fiery doc that undermines itself with pub-bore polemics.

... thorough in its revelations, and thoroughly depressing on how the world has been thwarted in this important attempt to heal itself. The film is intent on putting on notice all the "guilty" parties that deny the dangers of climate change...

...tragically falters whenever director Craig Scott Rosebraugh inserts himself into the proceedings and allows his personal ax grinding to overtake journalistic impartiality.

The title says it all.

The well-intentioned film includes plenty of statistics and makes its stance clear, but the familiarity of the subject matter decreases its impact.

Salt Lake Tribune
March 22, 2013
An entertaining expose of the industry-paid deniers and how they continue to muddle the climate-change "debate."

As much as it hopes to incite outrage and to stir a complacent body politic into action, [it] never quite rises to the level of urgency the subject requires.

Not the most eloquent "outrage doc."
Avi Offer

Provocative, vital and enraging. It goes further than An Inconvenient Truth.

A blistering attack on politicians, propagandists, dissemblers and other climate-change deniers.

The film's effectiveness largely stems from the flat-out lameness of the opposition arguments, the lack of scientific credentials of those making them, and the self-interest of their corporate bosses.
Leah Churner
Austin Chronicle
March 8, 2013
Rosebraugh's arguments are sound and his heart is in the right place, but his execution is self-defeating.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Filmmaker Craig Scott Rosebraugh seems to take a kind of perverse glee in hauling out the worst offenders among what he calls the climate change deniers for public shaming.

What's next, "Big Oil Is Full of Meanies"?

The film makes its case well. The problem, though, is it seems a bit late.
