Unsettling transformations are sweeping across the planet, and clue by clue, investigators around the world are assembling a new picture of Earth, discovering ways that seemingly disparate events are connected. Crumbling houses in New Orleans are linked to voracious creatures from southern China. Vanishing forests in Yellowstone are linked to the disappearance of wolves.

A documentary that doesn't cause comatose states
20 April 2005 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I just saw the first 2 parts of this show, and it's the least boring doc I've ever seen. It has important info everyone in the world should know about, and everyone should do their part to help with the problems this show points out are going on in the world. I never thought I'd say it, but this documentary doesn't suck. Really though, I think time will show George Bush is responsible for all of these disasters anyway, but the show has no mention of him. I'd recommend showing this in schools all across America and English-speaking countries- but if the DVDs have other languages, that would help too.

And also, it has Edward Norton (who played the violent schizophrenic guy in Fight Club) hosting !
