Storyline

For the past two decades researchers, activists, scientists, and progressive politicians have struggled to rouse the public and the federal government to take action on global warming. Concurrently, naysayers, industry funded think-tanks and lobbyists have worked tirelessly to challenge, convolute and dismiss the issue as hysterical. Everything's Cool tells the harrowing story of what it takes to talk about global warming -- the art of duking it out with collective denial, the struggle to communicate the urgency of the crisis to an indifferent public and a laggard United States government. We follow a cadre of messengers who are passionate, exasperated, driven by fear, hope and a deep appreciation for the ever shrinking window of time we have to stop global warming. THE STORY AS IT IS EVOLVING We take to the road with veteran global warming messenger and author Ross Gelbspan, as he launches "Boling Point" -- his "last" and "final" book on the issue. We are behind the scenes at the ... Written by Helfand, Judith

Provides an understanding of the Politics of Global Warming
18 March 2007 | by (Austin, TX, United States) – See all my reviews

Everything's Cool was screened this week at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX. Whereas Inconvenient Truth is a film about the science of global climate change, Everything's Cool is really a study of the artificial political debate about the issue of global climate change. The film provides a compelling historical review of the 20 years of debate around this issue through the eyes of a number of key political activists who have been on the front lines. The film was made over the last several years as a new political consensus (shaped by Hurricane Katrina and Al Gore's film) finally seemed to be forming.

The most interesting aspect of the film is the examination of how a small group of think tanks - funded by the oil and coal industries - have created a political debate about global climate change even though the scientific consensus has been quite clear for some time. The film shows how ideology can be used as a tool to warp science and how the media can easily be manipulated into presenting "both" sides of a scientific debate. There are many parallels between the story told in this film and the other political discourses such as the "debate" between evolution vs. Intelligent Design.

Everything's Cool is humorous and entertaining film, but perhaps a bit too long. The film would benefit from some additional editing to create a more concise and crisper presentation of the issue. The film could easily be adopted for use in Political Science classes.
