Climate change is one of today's most hotly debated topics, not only in America but around the world. This series features firsthand accounts from people who have been affected by the occurrence, with a team of correspondents from the entertainment and news industries traveling around the world to report on effects of global warming and what people are doing to find solutions for it. Among the stories told are Oscar-winner Matt Damon's reporting on the health impact of heat waves around the globe, Golden Globe-winner Michael C. Hall's traveling to Bangladesh to get a vision of the future, and Emmy-winning journalist Lesley Stahl's heading to Greenland to examine the fate of the Arctic. Actors Don Cheadle, Harrison Ford and Jessica Alba are among the other entertainment icons who contribute reports to the hourlong episodes. The roster of executive producers includes James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Written by Jwelch5742

I want to thank all the super-rich people that made this series
24 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

We are often told that rich people are evil. This documentary proves otherwise. The rich people in the series have a heart of gold.

Indeed. These super-rich people briefly left their mansions and glorious life styles to tell us that we really, really don't want to have their mansions and glorious life styles. The fate of the world is at stake. They flew around the world in private jets (the film crews flew coach, we hope) telling us to "cool it".

You see, there are still parts on this blue planet where it is common for a 20-year-old mother to have seen two or three of her children die from diseases that are entirely preventable. Something as simple as access to electricity would do it (i.e. cheap energy with which to boil water). However, these super-rich people are telling her she cannot have an electric generator because, they say, 95% of scientists hypothesize it "could" harm the planet. And, shrug, the death of her children is the price to pay to save the planet from doom.

According to the World Health Organization, I quote, "more 6 million children under the age of five died in 2012. More than half of these early child deaths are due to conditions that could be prevented or treated with access to simple, affordable interventions".

The bottom line of the documentary? The children of the poor need to continue dying so that the children of the super-rich inherit a better world. And if it turns out that the fate of the world is not at stake, well, the children that have died are the children of the poor.
