broadcasting corporation), so that it can be shown in every Croatian
home and educate Croatian citizens about dangerous challenges of global warming," Croatian President said after the premiere in the CineStar centre in Zagreb.
Describing the message of the film as strong Mesic said that "everybody can contribute to the prevention of the further warming of the Planet". Mesic also announced that he was going to propose the replacement of electric bulbs in his Office by energy saving lightbulbs.
