Comment: This is a good ex-library copy with a few of the usual library markings on the cover insert. The disc is near flawless and like new on the bottom. Aside from the few library markings, the cover insert is clean overall and contains only minor imperfections. The case is brand new. The cover is a slightly different version from what is shown in the main product photo. See attached image to view this particular copy.

Editorial Reviews

Out of Balance is an exposé of the largest, most powerful company in the world. Recent Nobel Prize co-recipient Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth was a call to arms concerning the consequences of impending global warming. Out of Balance goes one step further: While acknowledging the need for drastic change, director Tom Jackson clearly points the finger at ExxonMobil for using its immense power to block efforts to wean us from our addiction to oil. In its quest for even greater power and wealth, ExxonMobil, rather than help define and defeat the problem of global warming, has used the media to misinform the public, blatantly ignoring the health of our planet and its inhabitants. A group of scientists, business executives and environmentalists are determined to battle and overcome this greedy Goliath (including commentary from RK Pachauri, Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or IPCC, a co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore). Out of Balance lends hope by giving solutions which will not only save the ecosystem, but ensure future generations have a livable planet.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

By Preston C. Enright on April 12, 2008
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The past decade has seen an exciting increase in the accessibility people have to professional filmmaking technology, and director Tom Jackson's "Out Of Balance" illustrates how that technology is providing vital perspectives that the corporate media tend to marginalize. The film is nothing glitzy, but a solid presentation of the ways in which ExxonMobil attempts to corrupt the national discussion of environmental concerns and energy policy. With massive resources to buy advertisements, to subsidize think tanks, and to hire an army of PR agents and lobbyists, ExxonMobil can reach deep into the hearts and minds of countless people. But the best spin efforts sooner or later run up against the realities that "Out of Balance" reveals through interviews with people like Ross Gelbspan Boiling Point and Bill McKibben Fight Global Warming Now: The Handbook for Taking Action in Your Community. One could even put aside concerns over climate change, and simply look at the destruction caused by the drilling and spilling of oil Oil On Ice (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge) to want a change in the way we fuel the economy and our lifestyles Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future.

"Out of Balance" covers some of the alternative energy paths we could take, and the director ends up purchasing a van that he fuels with used cooking grease.

This is an excellent presentation of the global warming/climate change problem. The film then turns on Exxon and the Valdez Spill and Exxon's resistance to facing the climate problem. The film also reveals how difficult it is to get government action on the climate problem. I only wish that chapters had been formatted into the film to make it easier to review and to present to others. Without chapters one has to fast-forward and reverse to review parts of the film.
