Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Great Warming makes it abundantly clear that passivity is not an option."
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"Michael Taylor and Karen Coshof's slickly made documentary serves as a tidy primer on climate change, making up in breadth what it lacks in exhortation."
‑ Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times
"Does a solid job of dealing with the problem but with enough originality that it's not an exact duplication of the Gore film."
‑ William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"A sober, smart and blunt environmental-catastrophe-to-come documentary."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"... The Great Warming, along with An Inconvenient Truth, the other widely released documentary to address climate change this year, should be required viewing by all."
‑ Laura Kern, New York Times
"An impressive parade of scientists, meteorologists and grassroots activists assert that humanity is capable of adapting to a changing climate, building sustainable communities without sacrificing modern-day comforts and even reversing some of the damage."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A kinder, gentler global warming docu."
