In the ten years since the release of Al Gore’s polemic, An Inconvenient Truth, much has changed when it comes to the climate. Now all but universally accepted within the scientific community, instead of trying to convince us of climate change’s veracity Time to Choose sets out to offer practical solutions to one of the world’s most perilous problems. With little time for despair, the film hypothesizes of a future in which realistic, commercially expedient and completely renewable energy alternatives can help to negate this environmental crisis.
Featuring inspiring interviews with environmental leaders including Jane Goodall, Nobel Prize winning physicist Steven Chu and food expert Michael Pollen, the film offers both the perfect primer for those uninitiated in the climate change debate as well as fresh perspective for more seasoned environmentalists. Time to Choose affirms that climate change not only presents us with one of the biggest scientific and technological challenges of our time but offers an ethical challenge too, regarding the notion that it's time we all make our choice.
Time to Choose
Academy Award Winning documentarian Charles Ferguson (No End in Sight, Inside Job) returns with an original and impassioned take on climate change in Time to Choose.
The magnificently composed film, shot over five continents, captures in equal parts the natural splendor and man-made devastation currently impacting our environment.
Narrated with equanimity by acclaimed actor Oscar Isaac, the film offers a comprehensive exploration of key climate issues, taking audiences from the deforestation of sprawling rainforests in Brazil, through the denuded peatland of Indonesia and the sodden oil fields of Nigeria, to the coal-sludge impoundments desecrating the tree-lined foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, all the while re-enforcing all we have to lose from the ravages of climate change.
