"People are going to die," pipes a child's voice at the beginning of "Cool It," Ondi Timoner's cacophonous portrait of the Danish economist Bjorn Lomborg, whose 2001 book, "The Skeptical Environmentalist," earned him the ire of the green movement and an accusation of scientific dishonesty. That accusation didn't stick, but Mr. Lomborg's reputation as a global-warming denier has been tougher to shake off.

The film, based on Mr. Lomborg's book of the same name, should be highly avoided by those seeking to not be ripped off. Don't waste your time with it, therefore. You won't learn anything about Climate Change. If they need more taxes they should just ask "for more taxes" and be honest about it. Putting a feel good label on it like the "CARBON TAX" just makes WE THE PEOPLE feel stupid and like we are being tricked,,, yet again. FACT: We had 14 mini ice ages in the last 5 years, so what happens after an "ICE AGE" could the answer be, "IT GETS WARMER" ??? I've only one real problem with this steaming pile being offered here. Its in documentaries while it obviously belongs in the science Fiction/Fantasy genre.
