As the U.S. presidential campaign heats up, so do the issues surrounding global warming. This FRONTLINE film explores the politics behind global warming, from the three previous U.S. presidential administrations to the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
This documentary also examines the well-financed energy industry campaign that challenged the broad scientific consensus on the human causes of climate change in an effort to stall federal regulation.
