Video: Cast of fly fishers tackles climate change

Fly fishers talk about climate change in the movie
Fly fishers talk about climate change in the movie "CO2ld Waters."

ENVIRONMENT -- The new "CO2ld Waters" documentary will debut in the 2015 Fly Fishing Film Tour (January-February) as fly fishers such as Yvon Chouinard call on anglers to pay attention to the signals their sport is sending about climate change.  

Some quotes:

(Fishing) is not a sport, it's  a real passion.

Sportsmen and anglers, that's what we have going for us: we pay attention more than other people do.

Temperatures are rising; droughts are more severe.

If you've got a politician who's running for office who thinks he's smarter than 98 percent of the world's climate scientists  they're crooks or they're dumb asses.

This is the defining social and environmental issue of my generation and of generations to come.

Check out the trailer, and you'll get the drift:
