Storyline

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

A Commendable Effort
21 June 2014 | by jfrost-fixmypcSee all my reviews

Famous personalities including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford and Michael C. Hall catch the general public's eye and lead them to a discussion of a very important topic. Real life examples of the effects of climate change help to make connections to a technically complex scientific model of the future worldwide environment. Although no single weather event can be blamed unambiguously on global warming, it is shown how the likelihood of extreme events in general will probably increase in frequency as worldwide temperatures rise. Climate change deniers and skeptics are treated with respect and shown the experimental evidence that they disagree with. Thanks to all involved in the making of the series.
