Hurricane Sandy. Wildfires in the West. "Brown-Outs" in the East. Farmers losing crops to the worst drought since the Dust Bowl. Climate change is no longer a prediction for the future, but a startling reality of today. Yet, as evidence of our changing climate mounts and the scientific consensus proves human causation, there continues to be no political action to thwart the warming of our planet.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
"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."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"If ever a documentary needed Michael Moore's ability to debunk the rich and powerful in his inimitable sardonic style, it's here."
‑ Jeremy Aspinall, Radio Times
"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."
‑ Katherine McLaughlin, ViewLondon
"... 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..."
‑ Elias Savada, Film Threat
"A blistering attack on politicians, propagandists, dissemblers and other climate-change deniers."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"What's next, "Big Oil Is Full of Meanies"?"
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"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."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"This film is an awful warning and awful fun at one and the same time."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"...tragically falters whenever director Craig Scott Rosebraugh inserts himself into the proceedings and allows his personal ax grinding to overtake journalistic impartiality."
‑ Jamie S. Rich, Oregonian
"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."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"The film makes its case well. The problem, though, is it seems a bit late."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"If you like being hectored, preached at and told you're wrong, then this is the film for you."
‑ Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
"A fiery doc that undermines itself with pub-bore polemics."
‑ Patrick Peters, Empire Magazine
"The title says it all."
‑ T'Cha Dunlevy, Montreal Gazette
