Watch a Decade of Docs on Climate Change & Environmental Threats

Watch a Decade of Documentaries on Climate Change & Other Environmental Threats

In The Power of Big Oil, a three-part documentary series that begins April 19 on PBS, FRONTLINE examines the fossil fuel industry’s history of casting doubt and delaying action on climate change, tracing decades of missed opportunities and ongoing attempts to hold Big Oil to account.

The documentary series comes on the heels of a new report by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) saying that rapid action is needed in order to reduce planet-warming emissions of greenhouse gases and limit climate disaster, and outlining possible ways in which the world can take action to cut such emissions in half by 2030.

“We are at a crossroads,” IPCC chair Hoesung Lee said in an announcement about the report. “The decisions we make now can secure a livable future. We have the tools and know-how required to limit warming.”

FRONTLINE has been covering climate change and other environmental threats for years and across platforms. Ahead of the premiere of The Power of Big Oil, revisit more than a decade’s worth of reporting.

With a new IPCC report out and a new FRONTLINE series premiering, revisit 10 years of documentaries and reporting on climate change and environmental threats.
