Streaming Video: One Degree Matters

I went looking for distributors of films that will be screened in the upcoming Environmental Film Festival and discovered One Degree Matters is available in its entirety on Vimeo.

Here's the Film Festival's blurb on it:

ONE DEGREE MATTERS (Denmark, 2009, 57 min.)

This documentary follows social and business leaders as they travel to Greenland and experience for themselves the dramatic effects of the melting of the ice cap and come to understand the planetary effects of climate change and the impacts these will have on society and the economy. The film brings to the screen the latest science from the Arctic and shows why a further rise in global temperature of one degree matters for the future of humankind. Directed by Eskil Hardt. Produced by the European Environmental Agency.
