What parents need to know
Parents need to know that the documentary is touted as a kind of anti-An Inconvenient Truth, although both films acknowledge the threat of global warming and climate crisis and both try to find solutions. Host Bjorn Lomborg, who is the author of "The Skeptical Environmentalist," debunks the scare tactics used by Al Gore's movie, and tries to find cheaper and more effective ways to go forward; unfortunately, his methods have made many enemies, and he spends a good deal of time defending himself. The movie features some strong imagery (scenes of destruction, dying polar bears). Kids of middle-school age and up that are concerned with the environment should be OK watching this.
