Do The Math, an inspiring documentary from renowned climate crusader Bill McKibben, follows the emerging global movement determined to change the terrifying math of the climate crisis. By highlighting people who are dedicating their lives to fighting the fossil fuel industry, Do The Math showcases an urgent call for action to protect our planet and end business-as-usual.
The stakes couldn’t be higher: currently, the fossil fuel industry has five times more coal, gas, and oil than is safe to burn — and they plan on burning it all. If they succeed in doing so, life as we know it will be drastically altered for generations to come as a result of catastrophic environmental degradation caused by global warming. That’s why it’s critical that we take immediate action against them now.
Do The Math spotlights those brave individuals who are ready to stand up against corporate polluters in many ways — whether it be through stopping the Keystone XL Pipeline or leading universities and institutions in divestment strategies. It is their passion and dedication which demonstrates that this is a David vs Goliath battle worth fighting for; just like how other great immoral institutions of the past century were overturned (e.g., Apartheid in South Africa).
We must join forces and do everything within our power to make sure that this crisis does not spiral out of control — or else our children and grandchildren will bear its consequences far into the future. Do The Math is a reminder of what we can achieve when we come together as one unified force for justice and progress — so if you haven’t seen it yet, please watch this film today!
