It is the largest movement the world has ever seen, it may also be the most important - in terms of what's at stake. Yet it's not east being green. Environmentalists have been reviled as much as revered, for being killjoys and Cassandras. Every battle begins as a lost cause and even the victories have to be fought for again and again. Still, environmentalism is one of the great social innovations of the twentieth century, and one of the keys to the twenty-first. It has arisen at a key juncture in history, when humans have come to rival nature as a power determining the fate of the earth. Written by
A must-see film for every would-be environmentalist
I saw the latest version and was blown away. A series of stories about historical moments when it seemed like there was no way to overcome a particular environmental threat: national parks, Love Canal, Brazilian rain forest, whale killing. The movie pulls it all together and shows what it takes to win the battles, and ends with 350.org's struggle with climate change. Inspiring and essential knowledge for anyone thinking about becoming an actor in preventing ecological disaster. Broken up into five parts that tell the story of five people playing key roles at different points in the movement. It played to sold out, cheering audiences last night at the beginning of it's run in San Francisco.
