Well told, even handed scientific exploration
3 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

Fateful Balance is a low budget but a well told even handed exploration of the question of whether climate change was man-made and if so whether or not one could separate man-made change from natural variability in climate change.

It is interesting to see now, because it was made at a time when science was leaning towards, but not yet able to say it was proved, global warming.

This 1 hour video handles the background science and facts underlying potential climate change nicely, a low budget, cogent precursor to AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, a decade and a half before its time.
