Documentary
Documentary maker Charles Ferguson has a reputation for adding fresh perspective to widely reported national crises—the Iraq War (No End in Sight), the 2008 financial collapse (Inside Job)—and this movie about climate change offers a comparatively hopeful assessment of the situation. It begins with a spasm of doomsaying, titles reminding us that the melting of Greenland's ice sheet would destroy major coastal cities, but for the most part Ferguson wants to spread the good news about the meteoric commercial rise of wind and solar energy, and the slim possibility of turning the world economy around before it's too late. As part of this campaign, he mounts a full-bore attack on the coal, oil, and gas industries, detailing not only their contribution to global warming but also the toxic side effects of mining and drilling operations worldwide. Ferguson portrays the climate struggle as a winnable war, but also a titanic one, pitting a small, greedy plutocracy against the rest of the world’s citizens.
