I wanted to make everyone aware of a new documentary film releasing TODAY called "COOL IT." The film is directed by two-time Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize winner Ondi Timoner and is based on a book by economist Bjorn Lomborg. The film addresses what Lomborg believes to be the unjustified hysteria surrounding global warming and allocation of $250 Billion annually towards climate change, in contrast with other concerns such as malnutrition, clean drinking water, HIV/Aids, poverty, and hunger that are severely underfunded, and ultimately proposing a re-appropriation of funds to meet the needs of developing countries. "COOL IT" challenges viewers to look beyond global climate change and embrace the principles of protecting and sustaining all of God’s creation … to focus on saving the planet AND its people.
I had the chance to catch up with Ralph Winter, executive producer of COOL IT. Ralph has been producing movies all his life, and has Executive Produced films such as the X-Men Series, Fantastic Four, Planet of the Apes, Mighty Joe Young and many others.
Ralph believes "COOL IT" presents a definite "call to action" to Christians. The movie is being released by Roadside Attractions in conjunction with 1019 Entertainment in select markets starting TODAY.
