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
This is the best film about environmentalism that I've ever seen. The issues are clearly presented. The archival footage is amazing. The narrators are world class. And the whole struggle to save our environment is captured beautifully. The film engages and provokes thinking. The director has done a superb job, in keeping with his world-class reputation.
It's unfair to compare this to Al Gore's film, which was also excellent but much narrower in scope.
This film is really epic in covering the subject.
I am sure that the point of view will provoke negative and even defensive responses from those who oppose it's point of view. That's to be expected.
But pay no heed to that and see this important film.
