'Cool It," a documentary about a mild-mannered Dane proposing solutions to global warming, carries a message likely to provoke, agitate and even infuriate. The message? The world is not going to end.
Bjorn Lomborg, who (like Al Gore) is not a climatologist but a gadfly with training in political science, says global warming is an important problem and praises Gore for drawing attention to the issue with "An Incovenient Truth." But "Cool It" -- complete with its own slide show and witty graphics -- amounts to a devastating rebuttal to Gore-ism.
If someone ever demands you watch Gore's film, agree! -- on condition that your friend watch this optimistic, wised-up answer.
