. . . “The documentary world, rife with impassioned advocacy, may now be poised for some genuine debate … ‘COOL IT’, Ms. Timoner said, was intended not so much to correct ‘An Inconvenient Truth’, which raises the specter of devastation caused by climate change, as to – temper its message with an appeal for practical solutions.” – NEW YORK TMES
