When it comes to climate change, why do we do so little when we know so much?
Through a relentless investigation to find the answer, Disruption takes an unflinching look at the devastating consequences of our inaction.
The exploration lays bare the terrifying science, the shattered political process, the unrelenting industry special interests and the civic stasis that have brought us to this social, moral and ecological crossroads.The film also takes us behind-the-scenes of the efforts to organize the largest climate rally in the history of the planet during the UN world climate summit.
This is the story of our unique moment in history. We are living through an age of tipping points and rapid social and planetary change.
We're the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, and the last generation that can do something about it. The film enlarges the issue beyond climate impacts and makes a compelling call for bold action that is strong enough to tip the balance to build a clean energy future.

If you want to effect climate change, clearly all you need is a lot of people carrying signs. The environmental activists tell the world (probably correctly) that theirs is now the largest "movement" in the history of mankind. But they never bother with a report on how effective they are (absent recessions - apparently the only real deterrent to human GHG emissions - the quantities of the three primary GHGs continue to hit new records every year). This point is not addressed in the film, but the conclusion is clear: either climate activism is having no effect, or whatever effect it is having is simply being wiped out by an increasing number of people using fossil fuels (by population growth alone, or by emergent quality of life in "emerging economies").
Anyway, this film just provides a record of this particular event in 2014 and the hopes and aspirations of the people who think that the lack of US action on mitigation of climate change will be re-shaped in part by protest. It's not about climate science.
