Lots of documentation, tellers of truth in the face of threats to their families and themselves, lots of " '____' is going to happen if we don't change.... " and how nothing they've pridicted has happened. Also highlights how the promoters of climate change live exactly the opposite of what they want the rest of us to do!

I especially liked the segment about 30 (30!) Different predictions that the warmers literally reversed on.
