Movie Info

Climate catastrophe? Normal solar activity? The end of civilization as we know it? Cool It is based upon the book of the same name and lectures by Bjorn Lomborg, the controversial author of The Skeptical Environmentalist. Acclaimed award-winning filmmaker Ondi Timoner travels the world with Lomborg exploring the real facts and true science of global warming and its impact. Lomborg is the founder of the economic think tank, Copenhagen Consensus, which brings together the world's leading economists to prioritize major global problems -- among them malaria, the lack of potable water and HIV/AIDS -- based upon a cost/benefit analysis of available solutions. Amidst the strong and polarized opinions within the global warming debate, Cool It follows Lomborg on his mission to bring the smartest solutions to our energy needs, carbon emissions and other major problems in the world. -- (C) Roadside Attractions

Jam-packed but never disorienting, Cool It will definitely get your head spinning.

Cool It resonates, and gives one pause not just to consider the merits of the global warming question, but to consider the merits of all that we've decided to do about it, impending doom notwithstanding.

Lomborg (with an assist from Timoner's straightforward, uncomplicated doc) is the voice of reason. Calm down, listen to what he has to offer, and then get to work. Apparently, it's not too late. Whew.

Blond, boyish and with an irrepressible faith in human adaptability, Mr. Lomborg is the anti-Gore.

It can be a little hard to digest so many ideas, especially in such rapid succession. The movie is never boring, but there may be some information overload for laymen in the audience.

It's been five years since Gore warned us that we only have 10 years to fix global warming -- hey, Al, my apartment is near the Hudson River. Wanna bet it's still above water in 2015?
