This movie is an excellent introduction to the problem we now face. It offers some hope, but only a limited amount. The best we can hope for from the Paris accord will be a reduction in the RATE of INCREASE of CO2 in the atmosphere from what it is now to something like what it was about 20 years ago. What we really need is to roll back our impact on the global climate to what it was 200 years ago, when that impact was first becoming evident. And then also finding a way to reduce the impact of the CO2 we've already put in the atmosphere and which natural mechanisms won't remove for at least another thousand years. And yet we need to provide everyone on the planet with access to affordable energy, so they all can thrive as the developed world countries have. There is a way we can do this, but it would require building a wholly different sort of energy and transportation infrastructure. I've written about this in a book titled "Avoiding Our Extinction, A Practical Plan" (see <avoidingourextinction.com> and spoken about in a talk titled "Thinking Rationally About Population Issues" which can be seen online at <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CAUIHGIPDA>.

I really wanted to watch this movie but every time i pulled it up there was always an error. I know it's free but i get so irritated. I don't know if it's the movie or google. there are a couple others as well. i guess my frustration is showing. I'm sure it would have been enlightening, if i could have seen it.

All of the bad reviews that I've seen, were most likely conservatives. Your republican party does not belive in global warming because they are getting paid millions of dollars by oil companies. But we are getting better. I've seen more Republicans say that global warming is real every day. THIS IS A GLOBAL ISSUE
