Hot off its world premiere at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, EVERYTHING’S COOL offers a witty and hopeful exploration of journalists and activists struggling to raise awareness about global warming before it’s too late. We follow these crusaders—from a government whistleblower to a Weather Channel reporter to a biodiesel experimentalist—as they take on powerful lobbying forces and public apathy.
