How to Boil a Frog is an eco-comedy that gives an overview of the Big Mess We're In - environment, energy, economic - and lays out a set of personal solutions that will make your life better and save civilization as a by-product. HTBAF chronicles Jon Cooksey's personal, three-year adventure as a filmmaker, activist and, above all, a father driven to make sure his daughter would have a future beyond living on a raft with the last polar bear. HTBAF mixes humor, facts and a sprinkling of experts (in tiny doses) to show how climate change is just one symptom of an even messier problem: overshoot. "Overshoot means too many people using up too little planet," says Cooksey, "so in the end, we either need fewer people, more planets, or we're going to have use less stuff. Or all three. I dib Mars." With its Everyman approach in the style of "Supersize Me", interviews with scientists, journalists and energy experts across North America, HTBAF takes the kind of information that makes most people...

I spent the last 5 years trying to convince people to read Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. But after watching Jon's Comedy Documentary, How To Boil a Frog, I'm on a new mission! Finally a documentary about Global Warming that gives us answers and hope, instead of a feeling of "UTTER DOOM". Lets face it - We all understand that we are destroying the planet. HTBAF shows us how we can save the human race by doing 5 things. And as far as Atlas Shrugged goes, well honestly... Is there really any hope for Government? lol! Speaking of HOPE....(Rhymes with POPE).. What a fun challenge it will be to get the Catholic Church on board the HTBAF Train!
Make Friends, Make Fun, Make Trouble! Perfect!
This Documentary is a MUST SEE for everyone interested in saving the Human Race!
