This excellent film addresses the devastation of overpopulation and uncontrolled growth on a finite planet.  This issue is certainly at the core of dealing with climate change.  Certainly world overpopulation plays a critical role in water shortages, world hunger, species extinction, as well as in climate change.  The film is not rated, but has nothing objectionable for any of our audience

"This could be the most important film ever made!"
     --Paul Erlich, Author of The Population Bomb
 
"The cult of endless growth has kept us from seeing clearly the choices in front of us."
     --Bill McKibben
