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.

September 26, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

... 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...

The title says it all.

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
NYC Movie Guru
March 9, 2013
Provocative, vital and enraging. It goes further than An Inconvenient Truth.

A blistering attack on politicians, propagandists, dissemblers and other climate-change deniers.
| Original Score: 3/4

Ronnie Scheib
Variety
March 8, 2013
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.

Washington Post

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.

Prairie Miller
WBAI Radio
March 8, 2013
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.
Nell Minow
Beliefnet
March 7, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
Top Critic
Jeannette Catsoulis
New York Times
March 7, 2013
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.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

Los Angeles Times

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.

Arizona Republic
March 7, 2013
In Rosebraugh's uncompromising hands, it plays out like a strident screed for those already burning with righteous indignation.

This forceful documentary deals with the hot button issue of climate change in powerfully compelling fashion.
Monica Castillo
Boston Phoenix
March 7, 2013
Condensed and to the point, the film gets its message out and includes a three-step guide on how to get involved.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
Rob Humanick
Slant Magazine
March 6, 2013
What Craig Scott Rosebraugh's film lacks in originality, it makes up for in comprehensiveness.
