When it comes to the environment and climate change, it feels like we’re constantly being lectured, by journalists, politicians and activists.
We’re told that our way of life is unsustainable, that we only have a few years to act, and that we’re facing an existential crisis, not just as a country, as a species and a planet.
We’re told that if we don’t follow the exact prescription handed down to us by, quite frankly hysterical activists, that it is because we are either too stupid to understand the problem or too evil to deal with it.
We’re told that the science is settled and any dissident thinking is the equivalency of Holocaust Denial.
This investigative documentary series explores the polices, the activists, the organizations, the governments, the international institutions and the global climate lobby to try to understand whether they are actually working for the good of the planet, or whether they are motivated by something else altogether.
