Cool It is a 2010 documentary film based on the book of the same name. It stars Danish author Bjørn Lomborg, who wrote the book. It premiered in September in Canada at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival by Maple Pictures and had a theatrical United States release with Roadside Attractions on November 12, 2010. The film was directed by Ondi Timoner.
The film focuses on Lomborg lecturing and brainstorming ideas to make the environmental movement less propagandistic and more realistic, which includes de-emphasizing efforts to stop global warming. Interviews include many scientists and activists both supporting and disputing Lomborg.
While many non-scientist critics welcomed the upbeat, positive nature of the film, most scientific critiques noted some scientific inconsistency and glossing over of facts, a summary of which can be found on the Yale Climate Media forum.
