Editorial Reviews

Since 1971, the City of New York has had laws restricting curbside engine idling. One man, determined to reduce air pollution in his neighborhood and combat global climate change, confronted the city's lax enforcement efforts. This film chronicles the challenges and triumphs of his campaign.

This documentary is a must see for anyone who cares about the environment and their health. I don't want to spoil the pleasure of seeing this by talking about the content. Suffice it to say that it will amaze you. It is very informative and told with humor.

I screened this film in my freshman rhetoric courses and it provided excellent material for discussions about eco-activism, as well as how arguments are made in documentary films. The students were able to think critically about their own behavior and engage in thoughtful debate. Highly recommend to educators of teens, young adults, and beyond.

So many of us sit by idly (no pun intended) and complain about issues without ever trying to do anything about them. This movie shows how one person can make an enormous difference. I found it truly inspiring and would love to see it used in classrooms to spur students towards activism. If you are passionate enough about any issue, you CAN be an agent of change!

Everyday, a line of SUV's sit idling outside of my high school waiting for the school day to end. Everyday, parents run their cars for 20 to 30 minutes while waiting for their children to file out of the school. They never give a thought to the fact that their kids walk through poison to get into their comfortable cars or that the heater or air conditioner they are running is simply recycling the exhaust from the car in front of it. More people need to see this video and spread the word that this simple idea will help us all live cleaner and healthier lives!

George is creative, and dynamic, and explains the issue of unnecessary idling. For cities with budget difficulties, think of how much money could be raised just by issuing tickets! It would quickly change behavior, and we wouldn't do it as a society anymore. It just requires a little change in daily behavior. See [...] for more!

Many of us living in big cities like New York too often take for granted the air we breathe, unconcerned about the dangerous assault on that air from the constant fumes of cars, trucks, and buses. With courage and tenacity, George Pakenham has taken on a one-man crusade against that assault, and presented it all in a way that is clear, convincing and entertaining. If you enjoy breathing clean air, this film is worth watching.

In this unique and inspiring film, we are reminded and shown that one person CAN make a difference! How refreshing when it's so easy to "let the other guy do it." To think that one articulate, determined man was willing to put his idea into positive action requiring so much patience, time and effort is a joy to behold. This film deserves a huge audience. I hope those who buy it will share, share, share and spread this important message on the dangers of idling. Bravo to George Pakenham!
