Intro to Global warming, but a 300 level course
23 December 2011 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a excellent documentary about what is really happening. Lomborg is NOT saying global warming is fake. He is simply saying we are using our money and time for solutions that DOES NOT WORK. Solar panels are expensive toys, wind turbines are not reliable. and etc...

This movie tackles with something most of us avoid to talk, and it does it brilliantly. There are many different if not permanent solutions to the problem of Global warming, we just need to get to use them until a cheaper renewable energy is at hand.

Must watch movie for many of us, and if you do watch it keep an open mind about the solutions he suggest. If you disagree and think it's fallacious please do a little research on your own.
