Goofs

The claim that "in May 2016, Portugal operated four days straight on renewable energy alone" is false. It may be true that Portugal operated four days on *electricity* from so-called renewable sources. But electricity consumption is only a fraction - about one-fifth - of total *energy* consumption.

Quotes

Mr. Narendra Modi (PM of India): [at COP21] Democratic India must grow rapidly to meet the aspirations of 1.25 billion people 300 million of whom are without access to energy. Energy is a basic human need. There should be no place for unilateral steps that become economic barriers for others. So, we still need conventional energy, fossil fuel. And anything else will be morally wrong.

Honestly more of an 8/10, but there's a one-star attack on this movie
13 August 2017 | by momchilmmSee all my reviews

As of this writing, more than 40% of the ratings are one-star. I do not know what the explanation is (although we could easily have some guesses) but I do not believe this is fair. This is why I'm writing my first IMDb review ever.

I do believe it is important for people to see this movie, and some of the scenes and the information had me gaping. It is definitely not boring. Maybe the only problem is that it is a bit too Gore-centric. From my point of view this was fine, as he is a compelling and moving speaker. However, I know that there are people who would not take a single word from him as truth, and so the message will never get through... But then again nobody knows how to get the message through with those people.
