Chasing Ice (Jeff Orlowski, 2012)
Towards the end of this movie, there is an interview with a former Shell employee who, upon being exposed to James Balog’s work, quit his job spin doctoring for Big Oil and went to work for the dark side. I do not know this for certain, but I am going to take an educated guess that that particular interview has been savaged by the so-called conservatives who attack the science of climate change on a regular basis. (The reason I say “so-called conservatives” is beyond the scope of this review, but to oversimplify, “orthodox religious” and “conservative” are mutually exclusive terms; it is impossible to base your arguments solely on reason when your thinking is driven by faith, which is by definition the antithesis of reason.) I am here to tell you that yes, it is possible.
