Everythings Cool
Tuesday, 18 March 10.30-12.30 Clapham Picturehouse
An entertaining behind-the-scenes look at the worlds big problem: global warming, and, what two opposing groups of messengers propose we do about it. Everythings Cool chronicles the struggles between a determined, but exhausted, group of environmentalists, journalists and climatologists and an army of industry sponsored hacks who have effectively paralysed the nation with their manufactured doubt. As much about messaging as it is about the messengers, as much about human nature as it is about humans' impact on nature, veteran filmmakers Daniel Gold and Judith Helfand explore what it will take to push the US into taking action on Global Warming.
