      Jonathan W Inspirational, hopeful and educational. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Unfortunately, this movie is just the latest in a string of feel-good, greenwashing propaganda films. Just follow the money from HBO's coffers straight up to its parent multinational AT&T's $181 billion in revenue last year. Do you really think one of the largest corporations in world history is offering a serious solution to the Earth's current ecological crisis? They are the ones that caused the crisis! But they're hoping viewers naivety will continue and they're laughing all the way to the bank, hoping that this movie will help placate the masses. The hard truth is that so-called "green energy" - wind, solar, biofuel (which is a euphemism for burning forests) cannot even put a dent in Western society's rampant growth and ecological footprint. Our whole system of economics is anchored in endless growth on a finite planet. Building a few wind turbines and putting solar panels on your McMansion will not help. Fossil fuel extraction is projected to rise dramatically the next decade; not go down like this film would have you believe. The party will be over soon - either start building your ark or, if you're brave, read Ozzie Zehner's "Green Illusions" or watch Jeff Gibb's "Planet of the Humans" for sobering, honest accounts of how we can learn to reject consumerism, materialism, and capitalism - and embrace conservation - in order to save the planet - and us. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member As a documentary, its informative and interesting. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Awesome - watching it again for the second time today. I am learning so much about the world's energy needs and the fight for clean renewable resources to slow down climate change and all of its horrible consequences... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Stoop Dogg The world seems to be in rabid decline climatically and it can get very depressing. This movie is an antidote to that. It gave me hope that we could get out of the mess we’ve created for ourselves! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/29/19 Full Review Audience Member Propaganda. Makes statements claiming solar is not subsidized by every other customer, when it is simply true. Unless you have a 24/7 base load renewable generator, you aren't replacing like with like, you rely on the very system everyone else pays for so you can have light at night when you are home, while expecting to be paid for "generation" you create while not at home. The woman claiming to be concerned about the "free market" as a green tea party member was the cherry on top, libertarians were infiltrated and subverted by exactly these types, there is no "free market" when subsidies create a rigged system. The sob stories about the jobs lost miss the point, these were fake jobs paid for by imposing a burden on every other tax payer and power consumer.
