The claim that "on August 7, 2016, 100% of Scotland's electricity came from wind power" is false. It is (reportedly) true that, on that (rather unusual) day, Scotland's windmills produced a wee bit more electricity than was consumed in Scotland. But electricity consumption is low during night hours and much higher than average during peak hours, and wind does not follow this pattern. Therefore a considerable part of the electricity consumed on that day had to come from other sources. See more »

Could have been better but still an important watch
Would have been better if it was more like the first one - like a straight up lecture full of evidence. The subject matter is very important, of course; however the editing of the film is sloppy and all over the place up until the final 20 minutes or so when then start showing how India more or less held the world hostage and got advanced solar technology patent rights out of it. In a funny twist of fate, after this movie was released India went back to going full Industrial and has beaten China when it comes to smog. Lol, this world is doomed.
