Hot Docs: Mr CO2: Life after Kyoto now available in Media Services

He has expanded through the very air we breathe. He's galvanized
activists around the globe to fight him, and stymied the world's
political leaders. Meet Mr. CO2: carbon dioxide, the primary cause of
climate change. This documentary may use whimsical animation to
personify carbon dioxide emissions, but its message is dead-serious:
if we fail to cut the rate of CO2 spewing into the atmosphere, we face
a bleak future. MR. CO2 opens in Copenhagen, where the world's
political leaders gather in December 2009 to try and hammer out a new
carbon treaty to replace the Kyoto Accord. Joining them are activists
and climate scientists, on-hand to press for action. They include
Rajendra K. Pachauri, Chair of the International Panel on Climate
Change, and Bill McKibben, founder of a movement aimed at lowering
atmospheric carbon, who says at the conference, "we are past the red
line, the real debate is between human beings on the one hand, and
physics and chemistry on the other."
