Al Gore is in the movie! His activism on climate change made him filthy rich. That says it all. Funny how he didn’t make the preview.
From another reader who walked out after an hour – the theme was capitalism doesn’t work. No surprise there!
Another reader claimed an IWU professor required a class to attend and write a three page paper on the movie.

The website claims the film will offer SOLUTIONS to global decline.
One review claims this movie is “A must see for decision makers”.
The globe is not in decline because people find solutions to problems.
The old pessimists made very poor forecasts. Famine did not kill millions of people. The air in developed countries got cleaner, not dirtier. The world produced more food, not less. The prices of oil and other commodities did not soar persistently. The pessimists missed how technological improvement would enable the world to grow more food, use fewer finite resources per unit of production, and improve environmental quality all at the same time. Those technological improvements didn’t just happen, but were the result of people finding better ways to do things.
Yes there are still problems to solve, there always will be. Where are problems made worse? Where are problems solved?
Look at governments. Decision makers either allow problem solving by its population or prevent it. Citizens are leaving Illinois in droves because of the people who will love this movie.
If anybody goes, please recap if for me!
