Everything's Cool DVD
Everything's Cool, billed as a "real-life disaster movie" is a film about Americans' growing awareness of global warming in the wake of Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth and Hurricane Katrina. It's also an incredible time capsule for our mass awakening to climate change as an issue that will shape our lives, with parallels to other political issues and the way they are framed by industry representatives and an easily-manipulated media.
The film follows a groups of "global warming messengers" through three years -- 2003 through the beginning of 2007 -- and looks at how the country came to realize what scientists had long recognized -- that global warming is happening and that something needs to be done about it.
Where an Inconvenient Truth focused on the science of global climate change, Everything's Cool looks at the political debate around the issue -- how a small group of energy-industry-funded think tanks created a debate when scientific consensus existed, and how the media's desire to present both sides of a story can move political dialogue way off course.
Everything's Cool, an official selection of the Sundance Film Festival, is available on DVD.
