In the subtitles of an interview with Mikhail Gorbachev, the former USSR premier is translated as saying that because we have strained nature to the breaking point, "we must, the generations living now, must take a principal decision that we will act differently because the ecological crisis is global." Taking "a principal decision" is an odd turn of phrase, at best, in this context. Almost certainly, Gorbachev said "we must take a principled decision." See more »

Quotes

Wes Jackson: It's not just global warming. It's not just fossil-fuel dependency. It's not just soil erosion It's not just chemical contamination of our land and water. It's not just the population problem. And it's not just all of those. - The deterioration of the environment of our planet is an outward mirror of an inner condition. - Like inside, like outside. And that's a part of the Great Work.

Film superbly does its job as a social responsibility educator.
14 September 2007 | by (Davis, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

With the world economy expanding as it is bringing pollution along with it, combined with the lack of socially responsible leadership specifically in the forms of education and regulation, The 11th Hour superbly outlines the current status of our Earth's health, the movement to revive it, and a basis for the education that is needed to make necessary changes for a healthier planet. Much file footage is shown throughout the film that is sometimes not specifically discussed but does provide good visuals for the narration and speakers, which is the basis of the entire film. Although the production is a bit ADD (ie a screen cut every 1/2 to 1 second at times), the distress call for the environment and future of our world is clear. A 10/10 is deserved for this film for social responsibility and standing up against non-leadership while providing feasible options to reduce global climate change from the ground up.
