Storyline

It is the largest movement the world has ever seen, it may also be the most important - in terms of what's at stake. Yet it's not east being green. Environmentalists have been reviled as much as revered, for being killjoys and Cassandras. Every battle begins as a lost cause and even the victories have to be fought for again and again. Still, environmentalism is one of the great social innovations of the twentieth century, and one of the keys to the twenty-first. It has arisen at a key juncture in history, when humans have come to rival nature as a power determining the fate of the earth. Written by Anonymous

A religious drama
11 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

I was looking forward to watching this. There is always the chance that a balanced view might be offered and discussed with maturity. No such luck.

All that is now left to do is to thank the rich people that made this religious drama. They are now back at their palaces, of course. Or flying around the world in their private jets.

Green acolytes will love this latest issue of their Watchtower. Just like the rest of us, the far larger majority, will not. It's a survival issue. For this "film" is an assault, camouflaged as an accusation, disguised as concern. And normal folk have been systematically brutalized before by the enlightened. We know in our bones that we are no more than prey to them.

In sum, it's just another propaganda piece. When it won't bore you, it will freak you out with its absurd extremes.
