A beautiful documentary with a warning
2 October 2016 | by davidbrettellSee all my reviews

A beautiful documentary explaining and demonstrating how the ice cores tell their message. If the politicians had one-hundredth of the grit, determination, integrity, humility and humanity demonstrated by these scientists then the planet would not be in the mess it is in now. We are privileged to be able to view Monsieur Lorius' life story. At the end he shares "Man is never so sublimely in his element than faced with adversity". Sadly, this is for men like him and his bullet-proof friends, and not I would dare to suggest does it compare to the uninformed masses of slack jawed, obese, Youtube watching, materialistic consumers that now comprise "developed" society. Possibly an epitaph to the human race.
