Combating global warming is probably the most important long-term challenge that we face today. "Good Intentions" is about an ordinary man who sets out to make a difference. However, this story does not intend to preach to anyone. Instead, it follows our protagonist's journey to do his part for the environment; presented (we hope) as an entertaining, intelligent and balanced political satire...with a touch of romance too. Something a little bit different, with a positive message...
