Storyline

For the past two decades researchers, activists, scientists, and progressive politicians have struggled to rouse the public and the federal government to take action on global warming. Concurrently, naysayers, industry funded think-tanks and lobbyists have worked tirelessly to challenge, convolute and dismiss the issue as hysterical. Everything's Cool tells the harrowing story of what it takes to talk about global warming -- the art of duking it out with collective denial, the struggle to communicate the urgency of the crisis to an indifferent public and a laggard United States government. We follow a cadre of messengers who are passionate, exasperated, driven by fear, hope and a deep appreciation for the ever shrinking window of time we have to stop global warming. THE STORY AS IT IS EVOLVING We take to the road with veteran global warming messenger and author Ross Gelbspan, as he launches "Boling Point" -- his "last" and "final" book on the issue. We are behind the scenes at the ... Written by Helfand, Judith

Interesting as information, bad as a movie
13 December 2007 | by Dan DascalescuSee all my reviews

Everything's Cool presented interesting facts about the politics behind the global warming - scientists who have been silenced by the US government, climate change reports edited to look much less threatening, whistle-blowers who resigned from government position.

As a movie, Everything's Cool fails in numerous aspects. One that particularly annoyed me was the completely off-topic focus on Dr. Heidi Cullen's adaptation to the TV show world - who cares about that? The plot left an overall impression of a scatterbrained director, distractingly jumping from one issue (a global warming campaign truck) to another (Dr. Cullen's training for the camera) to another (a bunch of Utah guys making biodiesel in a garage) to another (whistle-blowers), without much transition.

An another reviewer mentioned, the movie was unnecessarily long. Dr Cullen aside, biodiesel is just one of the plethora of solutions for reducing emission, hence somewhat beyond the scope of the movie.
