Plot Summary
Widely known as "the skeptical environmentalist," Danish scientist and gadfly Bjorn Lomborg has been vilified for his views on climate change. In this documentary, a companion to his book of the same name, Lomborg expounds on his opinion that the earth is not facing an imminent environmental catastrophe, contrary to the prevailing opinion of the scientific community. The filmmakers follow him as he travels the planet sharing his views in a series of interviews and lectures.

  • It is at its best when examining alternative sources of energy and how their development has consistently been thwarted by the energy industry. show more

  • While Lomborg is an engaging though sometimes smug subject, director Ondi Timoner allows a coterie of scientists to spend too much time puncturing Gore than propping up Lomborg - who comes off as charismatic and engaged but, ultimately, merely a contrarian. show more

    This man is an environmentalist too. He just has different views that are much more logical. And for the people who wrote reviews I\'ve seen in here criticizing it, get an education.
