Movie Reviews

A silver lining
Jeffery Mingo | Homewood, IL USA | 12/10/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Too much stuff on global warming makes me sad. It doesn't make me want to work for change; it gives me the impression that there is nothing that could be done to reverse things. I love when environmental discussion give suggestions and not just doomsaying. This is that type of work.

This documentary goes into using algae and others things to reduce greenhouse gases. It also shows that humans can do things to get rid of land dumps and toxic waste. No one hates science classes more than me, so I'm glad non-techies could understand this discussion. I heard that there is now an AP Environmental Science class in high schools. Perhaps teachers could show this documentary on the first day of that class.

This work is diverse in terms of geography: it gave good news about New York City and not just the deserts in Arizona. However, the interviewees were not diverse. There were two women and no people of color interviewed. My guess is that environmental action would be improved if more diverse groups were involved in it."
