The film, screened at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and is scheduled to air on HBO in June, features known environmentalists Bill McKibben and Michael Mann. Scenes include a vast range of global spots from China’s smog ridden environment to impoverished communities in Ecuador and Zambia using solar power to Pacific Islanders afloat in a canoe-flotilla to protest against a coal tanker. Fox’s 2010 film, Gasland was nominated for an Oscar. It highlighted the dangers of hydrofracking to the environment and was, for many a groundbreaking wake-up call.
