Too Hot NOT To Handle

Over the past century consumption of carbon dioxide-emitting fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas) has risen to staggering levels, especially in the United States, where five percent of the world’s population is responsible for 25 percent of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions. Too Hot NOT to Handle offers a wealth of chilling evidence that the greenhouse effect is intensifying and the Earth is warming faster than at any other time in human history. A primer on global warming, Too Hot NOT to Handle features contributions from leading scientists in the field. In addition to in-depth discussions on such subjects as the greenhouse effect, hurricanes, snowpack, hybrid vehicles, and alternative power sources, this HBO film shows how businesses, local governments, and citizens are taking positive actions to reduce global warming emissions.
