Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story makes a strong argument that you should deal with climate change before you’re attacked by bears and crocodiles.

It is very satisfying to see climate-change deniers getting their comeuppance.

Con: It’s a rather bloodthirsty rant, and it’s all message: no characters, no plot, no dialogue—nothing but message all the way down.
