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

Rosebraugh's arguments are sound and his heart is in the right place, but his execution is self-defeating.

If ever a documentary needed Michael Moore's ability to debunk the rich and powerful in his inimitable sardonic style, it's here.

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.)

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

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

Boston Globe
March 7, 2013
A grab bag of environmentally related talking points that never quite congeals into an argument, let alone a prescription.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
Todd Jorgenson
March 29, 2013
The well-intentioned film includes plenty of statistics and makes its stance clear, but the familiarity of the subject matter decreases its impact.

Empire Magazine

A fiery doc that undermines itself with pub-bore polemics.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.

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

The title says it all.

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

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

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.

Not the most eloquent "outrage doc."

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

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.
