I remember movie too, it keft a huge impression on that continues today.oh my god - i watched this eons ago, (at least 15 years) and over time i could never remember the name of it, but i think this is it, or at least part of it. it was very different drunk (as was i 15 years ago, usually drunk)You don't have to believe in global warming to understand what the Anthropocene era is about. It is a change where homo sapiens are almost an infestation of the earth, or an invasive species.
We pollute the oceans with huge islands of plastic and micro plastics that are now a part of the aquatic food chain. We strip mine and decimate forests for agriculture. We poach endangered animals almost to extinction.
I first understood the concept around 1982 when the film Koyaanisqatsi came out. It is Hopi for life out of balance. I don't recommend you watch all of it unless you are in the right mood of the slow pace of the beginning and like the mesmerizing music of Philip Glass. However this segment, part 6 of 9 parts, is fast moving and better illustrates the point. Be sure and use full screen mode.
things like this - cleaning the planet, i can get behind. but all the WE'RE DOOMED IF WE DON'T ACT NOW pushes people away cause it's been done far too many times.
What concerns me though, in environmental matters including climate change, is where is the tipping point?
According to the "experts" we have passed at least 7 tipping points. Every few years, when they don't get their way, they trot out another scaremongering story and warn us of impending doom if we don't do what they say.
