Despite some grim reports, keep moving & creating says this doc
29 January 2016 | by SJFlannSee all my reviews

What can you say about a documentary of the planet, by the planet (its peoples) and for the planet? How can we prevent life perishing from the Earth? Find personal time or even better, a community organized viewing, to take in Josh Fox's wide tour of our planetary address. It also includes a tour of emotions ranging from fear to the realization that we're not giving up. Why? Because, as said in this work, we have the inventions to move beyond burning fossil fuels and it's time to get them working full scale. Two stellar sections (among many) include dialogues with Tim DeChristopher; (while you and I are recycling, he's blockin' illegal oil and gas leases – yeah,) and Ella Chou, a Chinese environmentalist who places the term Moral Imagination right in front. Thank you, Ella Chou. The doc puts it out there;'Hi people, get un-afraid. Work together to protect the ecosystems of our brilliant, one- of-a-kind home called Earth.'
