Melting sea ice, glacier loss and rising sea levels. Severe droughts and wildfires. Increasingly severe tornadoes, hurricanes, and flooding. Record heat waves. Climate change is no longer a prediction for the future, but a startling reality of today. Yet, as evidence of our changing climate mounts and the scientific consensus proves human causation, there continues to be little political action to thwart the warming of our planet. "Greedy Lying Bastards" investigates the reason behind stalled efforts to tackle climate change despite consensus in the scientific community that it is not only a reality but also a growing problem placing us on the brink of disaster. The film details the people and organizations casting doubt on climate science and claims that greenhouse gases are not affected by human behavior. From the Koch Brothers to ExxonMobil, to oil industry front groups, to prominent politicians and Justices, this provocative exposé unravels the layers of deceit threatening ... Written by

I feel terrible giving this documentary such a low score but it is honestly the way I feel. I was hoping this would be the passionate, insightful and well made film that would ignite people to action. But, alas 'Greedy Lying Bastards' is not. The talking heads have little passion. The film opens with the predictable extreme weather montage. Why does every climate change movie do that? The splashy graphics are repetitive and really reveal very little. All in all it is boring. Not that a social issue documentary has to entertain like Hollywood movies, but has to do something creative to stir people. Sorry to write such a negative review but I am frustrated.
