Mockumentary?
11 January 2013 | by ddunn-2See all my reviews

While I am far from convinced of the long-term effectiveness of carbon trading to reduce CO2 emissions worldwide, we are at a point in time where all ideas need to be on the table. I take climate change very seriously and am much more concerned about that issue impacting my son, than I am concerned about terrorism, for example. This film goes to great lengths to ridicule carbon trading, without discussing the complexity of changing the direction of this planet, given the considerable forces that are dead set on maintaining the status quo. Mocking ideas is not a difficult thing to do. Offering solutions that can actually be implemented is another matter entirely.
