What separates Charles Ferguson’s “Time to Choose” from the many other documentaries about climate change is that, after dutifully presenting many of the usual horrifying climate statistics, it lays out a series of possible solutions, already available, to the crisis. (Oddly, hydraulic fracturing is never discussed.)

In interviews, entrepreneurs, scientists, and innovators from around the world proclaim a near-future in which commercially advantageous renewable energy installations would drastically reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. Here’s hoping. Grade: B+ (Unrated.)
