electric power generating plantThis three-part documentary series is a deeply researched investigation of what scientists, corporations, politicians and the public have known about climate change for decades and the many missed opportunities to mitigate the problem. Spanning a half century and drawing on interviews with world leaders, oil industry scientists, whistle-blowers, lobbyists and executives, as well as newly uncovered internal documents, the films explore how industry was researching climate change as early as the 1970s, how it attempted to cast doubt on the science and how it exerted influence over public perception and policy.
