Reviews & Awards
Looks at scientific research — particularly the pioneering work of Dr. Charles Keeling begun over 50 years ago — that demonstrates how human activities, notably our increased burning of fossil fuels, are helping create a blanket of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that traps gases and vapors, leading to the 'greenhouse effect' and global warming. Our 'sister' planet Venus is cited as an example, in which natural events created 'runaway' global warming, making life unsustainable. This documentary is sure to spark discussion."

"Highly recommended. A very interesting film, from the perspective of scientists and environmentalists. There is a strong motivation by the end of the film to begin reducing
the use of fossil fuels, which is the main contributor to the problem."
