A must-see film for every would-be environmentalist
I saw the latest version and was blown away. A series of stories about historical moments when it seemed like there was no way to overcome a particular environmental threat: national parks, Love Canal, Brazilian rain forest, whale killing. The movie pulls it all together and shows what it takes to win the battles, and ends with 350.org's struggle with climate change.

Broken up into five parts that tell the story of five people playing key roles at different points in the movement. It played to sold out, cheering audiences last night at the beginning of it's run in San Francisco.
