The Great Warming

Has anyone seen the film, The Great Warming? It was released in the Fall of 2006, but it didn't make it to our area. Click the pic of Keanu Reeves and Alanis Morissette to see the trailer.

It looks like a good film, but I haven't heard much about it. On the movie's website they link to a review in the New York Times. The website is nicely done.

If you hit the blue button you can calculate your impact on the globe.

The reviews say the movie provides hope. This is from the NY Times:

Without undermining the urgency of the situation, the film radiates optimism that the human race can seriously explore its role in keeping Earth a habitable planet, and has already begun to do so.

As long as the political leaders who hold the power to implement a larger plan of action remain in “climate denial” (in the words of Stephen Schneider, a biologist from Stanford University), “The Great Warming,” along with “An Inconvenient Truth,” the other widely released documentary to address climate change this year, should be required viewing by all. Future generations’ lives, and maybe even ours, depend on it.
