Our Planet: Our Business.

Our Planet: Our Business.

The Our Planet series
launched on Netflix in April 2019. In just the first month, it was watched in over 25 million homes
around the world, and is already Netflix’s most successful
documentary series ever produced. It was the first series of its kind to carry an important
conservation message at its heart. It set out to showcase the wonder
and variety of life on Earth and reveal why this biodiversity is so important
to the health of the planet. The Our Planet team are carrying
this message beyond the series. Right now, we are in the midst
of the Earth’s sixth mass extinction. One every bit as profound
and far-reaching as that which wiped out the dinosaurs. This is a story
that everyone needs to know. Fundamentally, Biodiversity is the key
to the future of humanity. Most people understand
that a changing climate is a threat to our future survival. But few know
that the loss of our biodiversity is just as grave a threat. There will be no jobs on a dead planet. For too long, we have overseen the destruction of the wild animals
and wild spaces on our planet, and we are now beginning
to feel their loss. But we must not give up hope, for there is a path, and it’s a clear one. We can create a much better world, but it won’t happen by default,
it won’t happen automatically. This film will reveal
just why our biodiversity is so important, and the role business can play
in saving our planet. The business sector has no option
but to be a force for change. Earth, as far as we know, is unique in its capacity for life. Millions of species, billions of individuals, each with their own characteristics. Leading their own lives. But lives that are
connected intimately to the lives of others around them. This is the Earth’s
great biodiversity. It is a wonder to behold. And yet, so easy to take for granted. Our planet
has not always been like this. Before life, Earth was a wasteland. Its climate was chaotic
and wildly unstable. Its atmosphere,
a turbulent mix of noxious gases, and its oceans and lands poisoned. It was the evolution of life
that changed all that. Life has undoubtedly served to create
more and more comfortable conditions for life itself on this planet, creating the soils on the planet,
a stable atmosphere and better conditions
for successor species. The more diverse and complex
life on Earth became, the more it was able to capitalise on the growing opportunities
that arose, the more productive
the living world grew. There’s been this remarkable development
through to an amazing diversity, millions of different species, all of which are dependent in some way
upon each other. And now our planet is alive. It operates just like a living,
breathing organism. Its habitats, made up
of countless different species, work like its organs. Each with a different role to play
in keeping the planet healthy. Our planet’s poles act
like an air conditioning system, reflecting sunlight
away from the planet to keep it cool. The sea ice works like a soil, harbouring algae, which underpin the hugely productive
food chains in the cold oceans. Freshwater systems transport
life-giving water and nutrients throughout the landscape, criss-crossing its surface
like the arteries and veins in a body. Immense forests straddling the globe, and trillions of microscopic floating
plants in the surface of our oceans maintain the atmosphere
by locking away carbon and releasing oxygen. Coastal mangroves and coral reefs
act like breakwaters, protecting the lands behind
from the eroding waves and creating the perfect nurseries
for juvenile fish. And jungles pile plant upon plant to capture as much
of the sun’s energy as possible. The water and oxygen
produced in this process reach far beyond the forests. For any one of these biomes to work, the plants, animals, fungi
and microbes within them must all play their part. Only as an ensemble
can the living world work its magic. Biodiversity equals stability. And no species on Earth
has benefited more from this fact than us humans. It’s no accident that we have risen
to dominate the planet in the last twelve thousand years, a geological age
we call the Holocene. Now can you imagine,
the average mean temperature on Earth fluctuates during this whole period,
since the last Ice Age until today, plus/minus one degree Celsius. Plus/minus one degree Celsius! I call it the Garden of Eden
for humanity. The Holocene was the most stable
period of time that we know of, a period of calm that gave birth
to our modern civilisation. It’s this stability
that gives us all the seasons. We started to realise, Hey look,
it seems like it starts raining every year at the same time in May
on the Savannah. And it rains roughly twenty-one,
twenty-two times until it ends in October
for the dry season. And it does so every year. The Monsoon just harmoniously
comes back and leaves, comes back and leaves. In the Temperate Zone, you see the temperatures exceed
fifteen degrees Celsius, just at that point in spring and then it goes on, and then suddenly
at the solstice in October, the temperatures go down. And this has given us
our cropping seasons. Our ninety-day plus season
from planting to harvest. We know now that it was
the invention of agriculture which took us on the journey towards modern civilisation
as we know it. Blessed with this moment in time, we developed with incredible speed. We set down roots, our populations began to rise. Discovering fossil fuels,
we mechanised our societies. By 1955, we’re 3 billion
co-citizens on Earth. We have so far not had any impacts
at the planetary scale, we’re still the small world
on a big planet. But that is the moment. Ten years after the Second World War,
there is technology, there is reasonable peace,
there is trust. That’s when we entered
the Great Acceleration. The Great Acceleration, which continues to this day, has been a period
of unprecedented change. We have achieved
a great many things during this time. Technology,
driving advances throughout the globe. Our world becoming connected
as never before. And, above all else, business has boomed. No other period of time has seen
such productivity and growth. As many people became richer,
GDPs rose, diets changed. We ate more meat. Farming techniques intensified and fishing fleets got bigger
and more efficient to match our demand. Life expectancy and quality of life
for many around the world improved dramatically. In the last fifty years, the number of people on Earth
has more than doubled, each new citizen a new customer keen to experience the benefits
of the Great Acceleration. Just over the past fifty years, we have embarked on an exponential rise of unsustainable
exploitation of resources, unsustainable pressures on the planet, which has now reached such magnitude that science concludes that we have become
our own geological epoch. Welcome to the Anthropocene. The Age of Humans. We are now the dominant
force of change on the planet. Three quarters of the land surface and two thirds of the ocean are impacted by our activities. Our poles are losing their ice. In the summer, there is forty percent less Arctic
sea ice cover than there was in 1980. Many of the world’s great rivers
and lakes are drying up. Lake Chad, fifty years ago, it was twenty-five
thousand kilometres square of water. And now, ninety percent of the water has just evaporated. Around the lake, you have more
than forty million people living. Everyone wants access
to the shrinking resources. Almost half of our planet’s forests
have been felled for their timber, and to make space
for ourselves and our livestock. About sixty percent
of global deforestation of the tropical forests of the planet is to produce beef. About thirty percent is to produce crops, mostly soy in Latin America and then in southeast Asia: palm oil. Mangroves, full of colour and life, are being cleared to make way
for shrimp farms and beach resorts. And at sea, our extensive overfishing is leading
to the collapse of key fish stocks. We have already lost ninety percent
of large oceanic predators, like tuna, sharks and swordfish. The cod stocks crashed back home
in Newfoundland where I was from and, you know, thousands of people
thrown out of work, boats beached, canneries emptied. And what was interesting is that
you can build up an economy and culture for hundreds of years,
and it can be wiped out overnight unless we protect our environment,
protect our ecosystems. And that was the real wake-up call. And I think that’s where
I began to understand that there will be no jobs
on a dead planet. We have replaced the wild
with the domestic. We and the animals we raise to eat make up ninety-six percent of the weight
of mammals on Earth. Just four percent is made up of wildlife. Half of the fertile land on the planet
is now farm land. Our takeover of the natural world
has been so successful, that in the last fifty years, populations of wild animals have declined on average by sixty percent. This global loss of nature is already making the planet
less stable. We are today, the first generation
to know for certain that we’re putting
the whole planet at risk. Imagine, the maximum
temperature variability over the whole Holocene
is plus/minus one degree Celsius. We are above that already today. As the planet warms, weather systems
are becoming less predictable. Deadly storms, fires and floods are all becoming more frequent
and more severe. Over ninety percent
of people on the planet breathe dangerously polluted air. I have just become a grandfather. I have a one-year-old grandson. He is in Mumbai right now,
as we speak, and I worry, like all grandparents do, about the pollution in Mumbai. I wake up every morning wondering,
“Is something damaging his lungs?” which is going to spur action
and innovation. It’s about staying alive. It’s only as we have started
to lose things that we have begun to realise
the true value of nature. As Earth’s biodiversity drops, things we have taken for granted
start to disappear. Clean air and water, the food we eat, the soil it grows in. A benign climate, productive seas. A healthy world provides us
and our businesses with all of these for free. But if we were to place
a value on them, the services
that biodiversity provides for us are estimated to be worth
twice as much as the entire globe’s GDP. The destruction of our natural world is already costing us
trillions of dollars every year. Suddenly,
the costs of the Age of Humans are outweighing the benefits. We are at risk
of entering a danger zone where we could trigger irreversible
and self-amplifying change which could push the whole planet
ultimately away from the desired equilibrium. We are at risk
of destabilising the whole plant. If we continue with Business As Usual, scientists predict that a baby born today
could barely be in her twenties by the time the soils
of the frozen north thaw, releasing their locked methane, and any chance
of controlling the climate is lost. She could be in her thirties when the last of the coral reefs collapse as a result of ocean acidification
and warming. By the time she is sixty, overuse of fertilizers and pesticides
could have killed off soil microorganisms
and pollinating insects. There would be no more fertile soil. The weather becomes
increasingly unpredictable, leading to a global food crisis. Supply chains in multiple sectors
may have broken down. As she reaches her eighties, our planet could be four degrees warmer. She may have lived through
the extinction of countless species. Large parts of the Earth
may be uninhabitable. And global peace, an impossibility. The cost of dealing with this future,
if even possible, is estimated to be over five hundred
and fifty trillion dollars. Almost double the entire wealth
in the world today. Our current trajectory leads to a catastrophic future. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The Anthropocene has both
a negative and a positive side. Thanks to the fact that we are now
so clever and so dominant, we can use our own intelligence
and our technologies to become
positive Anthropocene engineers, Anthropocene stewards. So it’s up to us. We are in the driving seat, determining the future
for the whole planet. We have to understand the moment as a fundamental fork in the road
in human history, in which we must make
an active and thoughtful choice. While our past has been written, our future is yet to be determined and is in our hands. This is not about saving our planet, this is about saving ourselves. We are the chief beneficiaries
of our biodiverse, stable home. Our civilisation won’t work
without it. To change this situation will require
action on an industrial scale, and at an unparalleled speed. We have just ten years
to drastically alter our path before it will be too late to avoid
catastrophic changes to our planet. It’s about understanding
that this is critical. We have to increase
our forest cover. We have to restore degraded soils. We have to clean up
our rivers and our oceans. We just have to. It’s not about, “Wouldn’t it be nice.” No. It is an absolute imperative. We need revolutionary speed,
we need a green revolution, and it needs to happen at the scale
and at the speed of the digital, internet
and mobile revolution. And what drove the speed and scale
of these revolutions? Business. The same force that powered
the last period of global change can also power the next. If we can reimagine
Business As Usual, and make it fit for our planet, a finite world
that works best the wilder it is, we will be in with a chance. Every company needs
to turn the lens on itself and ask how are we designed
and how does the way we’re designed shape what we can and can’t do,
who we can and can’t be in the world. The broad strategy
for this new Business As Usual is clear. We just have to make sure
that everything we do, we can do forever. This means all of us must ensure
our investments and supply chains strive to achieve
five universal goals. We must transition from fossil fuels. Successful businesses will embrace
the clean technologies that now exist to replace them. Are we going to run out
of wind and sunshine in Texas before we run out of fossil fuels? I’m betting on wind and solar. First and foremost, I’m a businessman and the original decision
was a business decision. How can we have cost certainty
over the long term and mitigate price volatility? Wind and solar won out. Renewable energy already accounts
for one third of global power. The faster we can complete
the transition, the better our long-term gains. The living world is faltering, partly because we’re taking up
too much space. Sustainable businesses will help us
reduce our impact on land as much as possible. Logging and managing forests
selectively. Employing new technologies
to produce as much as possible from as little as possible. Growing crops
on already deforested land. All of this will help to reduce
the amount of space we take up. When my father took over
this property fifteen years ago, he cut the forest. I planted the first trees. We planted the first citrics,
the first bananas. I started to introduce life
back into the ecosystem. We don’t need to cut down more forest. We have enough land on this planet
for production for everybody. And it is business
that will invent brand new sectors to bring about
the most unexpected solutions. We’re trying to build a world where,
in ten years or fifteen years from now, the majority of the meat
and the majority of the eggs produced on this planet, didn’t require an animal,
didn’t require all this land, didn’t require all this water, and we can enjoy it just the same. New ideas and land management strategies will help us protect our biodiversity
and feed more people with less land. The health of the ocean is critical
to the way our planet operates. Future businesses will respect it as a resource
that belongs to all of us, only taking
what it can naturally replace. When you set aside
one third of the reef, you are opening up
two thirds of the reef for fishing, but one third is being protected that will actually sustain the population of the marine life that you’re fishing in the open two-thirds area. We want to do our share of
providing food for the rest of the world, but we have to do it
in a sustainable manner. Technological advancements
will help businesses prove the sustainability
of their supply chains, giving consumers more power to choose
sustainably sourced products. We live on a finite world. Yet we don’t act like it. Next-generation businesses
will design their product lines to fit within circular economies. We need to create industries
that don’t use things up, but use them again and again and again. Waste from one process
becomes food for the next. There’s no such thing as waste, actually. Waste is just a resource
in the wrong place. That’s even true for carbon dioxide.
It’s true for plastics. It’s true for everything we think
we’re throwing away – there is no away. So we need to create economies
with infrastructure that enable that circular design. All businesses will seek out
their place within the cycle. I have seen an amazing number
of companies really innovating
at the top of their game, looking at their products
and solutions and saying, “OK, instead of taking virgin resources, can we look at waste materials? Can we turn trash into treasure? Can we innovate
and offer sharing business models in which we reward consumers
for being more eco-friendly, or we enable communities
to make money from their trash?” This is a revolution
that’s happening, and I’m very excited to see it. Even the most complex,
global business communities will work to eliminate waste. We asked all of our suppliers to tell us exactly which material
was in their packaging. And we said, “By the end of 2019, we want to take no material
into our business that’s not recyclable. Can you manage that?” If we do set a standard, most of our suppliers
will want to come with us. We can do that. As a responsible business,
why wouldn’t we? The most damaging element
of today’s society is its quest for perpetual growth. We’ve got an economic system
that depends upon growing forever. How does that reconcile itself with a thriving planet? Growth for growth’s sake
will have to lose its attraction. We cannot think of economic success
if we’re deteriorating the environment, and I think that has to be
in the essence of each person that wants to lead a country,
to lead a company. The new sustainable economy
will readdress this. We need to create economies that allow us to thrive, whether or not they grow. But something can thrive
without getting bigger. It’s just thrumming, alive,
creating, regenerating, doing well, and it looks great to us
and we feel the energy in that. Our reinvented model
for Business As Usual will ultimately begin
to mimic nature. Adapting to thrive
within the finite world about it. Indeed, there is no alternative. We have come here to let you know
that change is coming, whether you like it or not. Save our planet! Save our planet! And the signs are that the next generation
of customers, employees and CEOs already knows this. This is our last chance to act,
before the world as we know it collapses. I think there’s a huge change in the way
millennials think about business. If you ask any other generation,
“What is the purpose of business?” they will say, “What colour is the sky? The purpose of business
is to make money.” If you ask millennials that question, forty-seven percent said some version
of the purpose of business is to improve society
and protect the environment. This is a fundamental sea-change in the way an entire generation
thinks about business. It’s going to mean that if you want
to attract the top talent and retain them, if you want to win over
millennial customers and attract
the thirty trillion dollars of capital that’s currently
being given to millennials by the baby boomer generation, you’re going to have to have a narrative around how your products
are sustainable and healthy. You’re going to have to have
an impact story as well. Sustainability is now
the only business plan, which means sustainability
is now a business imperative. So the vital thing
the business community needs to do is come together to encourage politicians
to set the global frameworks that will accelerate progress
to a sustainable world. If we have political leaders
investing in renewable technologies, investing in sustainable technologies promoting products
that are both good for the populace, that people will love
and that will prevent this climate crisis, then we’ll get there even faster. We humans
are the greatest problem solvers the world has ever known. We will solve this problem too. I committed, on behalf of my two hundred
and twenty-five thousand colleagues, that by the year 2040, the entire Mahindra Group of companies
would be carbon neutral. For both palm oil and soy, we have sustainable sources
for one hundred percent of what we sell within the UK and in Central Europe, and about forty percent
in our Asia business. So we have a commitment
to get to one hundred percent in total. Our generation, we want to abolish
the use of fossil fuels, and that gives me a lot of hope,
because it is possible. Companies that embrace
the transition can prosper, and even gain an advantage. I think in the future,
when we look back, there will be two types of companies – companies that got it
and companies that didn’t. I know which segment
I’d like to belong to. I’m hoping we’ll be out in front, cleaning up on a lot
of the opportunities before other people recognise
this simple truth. The only viable future is one in which business innovates to demand less of our world. In that future, the wild will recover. And as it does so, bring back the stability
and productivity that we rely on. Since commercial whaling was banned
just over thirty years ago, some species have recovered
from all-time global lows to numbers not seen
in hundreds of years. Some areas of ocean protected from fishing have seen fish biomass increase by over
four hundred percent in just a few years. Wherever we leave space, forests, wetlands, grasslands
and mangroves will regenerate. Now we have shown that
it’s possible to reverse deforestation. We’ve done that in the last decades. We reached twenty percent of our coverage
with forests, and we managed to increase that
to fifty percent, currently. As they grow back, the wild plants will lock away
carbon again, helping us fight
against a changing climate. The animal pollinators
and seed dispersers will return. The sea ice could start
to build at the poles once more. The weather we rely on
for our supply chains could fall back into regular rhythms. Our planet can rewild. And as it does so, become more diverse and more stable. Which is exactly
what we humans need to thrive. We can restore the balance of nature, fix the relationship
between our planet and our business, and change the way we live on our planet for the better, forever. Nature once determined
how we survive. Now we determine how nature survives.

    There is 1 more, probably the most important thing we can do to save our planet in this process. To fucking die by the billions !

  • Joseph Figliuolo says:

    Biologists understand ecosystems. Many economists pretend not to. Biodiversity is vital. Variation is essential to allow outliers to adapt to new conditions. Evolution.

  • "There will be no jobs on a dead planet (1:38)
    What the fuck? Who said life is about jobs? It's the most retarded thing I've heard in such a documentary

  • Leonardo Ortega says:

    WWF has been linked to violence against tribal peoples in diverse areas of the world. There are serious issues with WWF. WE MUST PROTECT NATURE ON PLANET EARTH BUT TRIBAL COMMUNITIES ARE THE GUARDIANS OF BIODIVERSITY, NOT SOME ROYALTY FROM EUROPE.

  • If 60%of all land is used for the meat industry then cutting out meat will be an enormous benefit..not sure about meat & eggs being produced without animals? And business corporations especially aren't taking this seriously..how come fracking has been allowed ? Why has the Brazilian Government given the green light for more deforestation in the past couple of weeks…..we can't leave it government or business ..we the people need to step up and make radical moves to force change…we don't have time for all the frilly suggestions made in this documentary…


    I personally shake my head in sadness at those that have given this extremely informative fil a thumbs down!! I simply cannot wrap my head around this… How can some be so ignorant to what IS happening NOW!! So truly sad!!

  • It is money that has to go, we need a complete economic overhaul, as long as there is a quick buck to be made pillaging the planet it will not stop, corporations and business have all the blood on their hands

  • It should be compulsory for all aspiring politicians to watch this.

    Religion is a problem, when the person you are debating with does not want to believe because a failing planet suggests there is not a God.

  • I am ashamed to admit that I was in denial for so long.This documentary must be seen by as many people as possible,including business leaders and politicians

  • This is STRONG !!!! I'm soo glad I watched it and willing to make a change even if it might be small actions such as trying a lower waste lifestyle , consuming less meat , recycle and so on …

  • Take 10 years off for everything about that baby girl born today. I can't see us hitting a 2C rise by 2035, but all these numbers are based on not hitting 2C until 2050-2060.

  • We are going to fail at saving the earth.. I don't want this to be true but you all better plan for the worst for this planet. The overwhelming majority of humans are dumb as hell! Dumb as hell! You people of greater intelligence watching this video are few and far between. I so sorry to break it to you but the bible is ridiculous, I mean what is a dumber word? How stupid is the bible and yet it is the highest authority in the majority of American homes. The people that do the most damage to the planet for the love of money know very well the power of theology and making money, they have the majority of the voting population hypnotized into believing that a bearded man in the sky is going to eventually solve ALL of our problems therefore not to worry about the warming of the planet, Jesus will fix it. So good luck with saving the planet!

  • What will the 5g tehnologie do with the habbitat en raise more energie(heat) and need more reshourses for new machines and gadgets? We need more and more energie for a digital world, but we are forgetting the real world.

  • Hate to break it to you but it isn't "our" planet or "our" biodiversity. No god gave humans "dominion" over nature though clearly we cherish this omnicidal illusion. The attitude is a prime indicator of hubris, truly "our" most conspicuous characteristic. It gives the false impression that we are in control of nature, reassures us that we can "own" things, that we have a right to endlessly consume and dispose of "our resources" without consequence.
    Sustainable business is an oxymoron. Still based on the same illusions of ownership. HIstory repeating itself as farce.
    Not to despair! In 10,000,000 or 100,000,000 years, a blink in cosmological terms, ecological balance will return to the earth and you will never know we were here.

  • Devonne Marcove says:

    I just called the Environmental Department at the UNITED NATIONS. I was told Balsanero is REFUSING their help to put out the fires. The rep told me that the Brazilian people need to know without the Amazon, Brazil and THE WORLD will experience severe drought. The Brazilian people need to know they will not be able to ranch or farm without water. They need to remove him from office and save our planet. Please share my message. Thankyou. 🙏🙏🙏

  • I've shared this with some family members and friends. I'm hoping this message will strike a chord in their souls to take action NOW.

  • Should I laugh or should I cry:"Now it is us who determine how nature survives?" Do we really still believe this? That we can determine this???Unless we are humbled enough first of all and know that we can be wiped out from the surface of this beautiful planet for good much quicker than we think it might happen ,we would loose our last chance for true transformation…Yes,"true transformation" not such a "green business plan" presented here as a solution….Corporate-funded WWF is a betrayal….Business what caused this enviromental collapse cannot and will not be the solution to helal it….Yes,"heal it" not "fix it"….Unless we percieve the difference between the two we will remain hopeless….What caused a problem cannot solve that problem….Lets understand this first….And please lets understand this quick because it May be too late….While all the other species are "rewilding" how and why should we stay in our very green labs to continue our very green business for our greener consumerist lives….Either we rewild with all or we are in serious trouble….

  • I feel SO sad and depressed for all the magnificent life being lost thanks to us humans. I hope a virus or a meteorite wipes half the human population to balance things out a little…

    Our planet is one of the best documentary for every life in this planet. I watched 3 times. It changed my mind to save our planet to be better. Thank you so much. I'm Thai, Bangkok Thailand South east asia.

  • Mother earth will take care of its own….we should stop our reckless activities or business for the sake of monetary benefits…each individual should live with very less material needs…

    Following these all problems will solved 80 percent within next 10 yrs….

  • "Waste is just a resource in the wrong place". What a great quote. We must build a cyclical economy and stop our pursuit of pointless growth. I can't wait to play my part in the built environment once I graduate:)

  • Dislike.
    There is no "greenhouse gas effect" , it is proven and backbone of climate change is BROKEN!
    Who did that tremendous feat? Émile Clapeyron in 1834. How?
    PV=nRT…try on Earth atmosphere! The result is exacly 15°C !!!
    And without greenhouse gas, unbelievable !
    Just function on temperature and the pressure!
    No water vapour or carbon dioxide, just pressure&gravity!

  • Trust our future to business? That's the solution? Sounds reasonable, after all, companies have a great record of putting people's interest before profit.

  • …Business. Business is our best solution to climate change? Good job humans 👍🏾 Like there needs to be something “in it for us” to save the Earth… just great job guys

  • 24:15 "renewable energy already accounts for one third of global power"
    That's a bit of an overstatement – at least 15% of that is Hydro, and what happens when the rivers and lakes dry up? That will be gone.
    Solar, wind (the stuff that people think of when you says renewables) is at merely 5-6% of total production output. Let's not get carried away…

  • Very effective documentary with outstanding script, narrative and photography. I do believe that overexploitation of some biological and other natural resources, including new incursions into as yet natural ecosystems, need to be addressed. Some forms of pollution are indeed a threat. However there are some things that need to be noted. Whilst it is true that that people are often longer lives, the population increases are mainly in third world countries. Advanced countries almost invariable have very low or even negative population growths.

    Sustainable and more efficient use of resources are of course commendable. Circular economies are a good idea. The documentary suggests that for the last few thousand years, the climate has been stable and that now CO2 is leading to a runaway thermal crisis. But is this really the case ? If so, what led to the following positions?


  • the fact that it needs to be explained (outside of a classroom) why we need biodiversity (a large range of lifeforms) is the sign of an insane society

  • 16:48 worries about the pollution in Mumbai, India (in India, 4 in 10 are exposed to 5 times the safe limit of particulate matter according to the financial times) and hopes the horrendous air will spurr on creative-juices to solve the air quality problem (as long as it's profitable, of course) while people are wondering where their next meal is coming from.
    Business at its finest.

  • So many nice words and great comments, yet I do not see ideas and plans for action. It's not to scold, but what about we use the energy and the number of peoples who watch and understand these videos and post here ideas and solutions?

  • This documentary was good until it showed Greta ThumbItch. Now I know this is a Liberal political video that really has nothing to do with the environment. Nice way to ruin it. When videos like this show their true Libtard colors they make me take out my stored 1973 Plymouth Duster out of storage and drive that gas guzzler for a month as my main transpration. I'll drive to go by a nice greasy hamburger with a styrofoam drink. And then throw out the styrofoam drink out the window as I burn out down the highway going 100 on a 60! EEEeeeeehhhaaaa!

  • This video is way too optimistic. It makes it sound like an easy guarantee that this will happen. It will not happen as they are describing. Where I work, no one gives a shit about the environment. Recycling is ignored, hazardous chemicals are poured down the sink, and fossil fuel use is unavoidable. The trend of human society is to want more and more and more. People and animals may be dying, but the majority of comfortable people do not care. Unless people are personally threatened, they will not change.

  • all of the teenagers and young people should watch this. I've been thinking how to make young people care about the environmental disasters, so I tried to start a little discussion on me and some of young people I know little conversation in the evening with our coffee. most of them keep changing the topic to the political problem in my country, every time I insist them to keep talking about our changing climate, they'll say "not everyone focus in everything, some people only update about music, some people only update about movies and even some people just update about their own loves"
    yeah, they were right but this problem is too important to be unfocused because it is our responsibility as human to stabilize the ecosystem of this earth, our home.
    I always disscus about this massive problem with them who care, but I don't wanna be the person who just talk about it, I wanna do something for it. I know I have right to use my voice but I'm pretty sure people wouldn't hear me, probably adult people will think like "ha, who are you, kid? what do you know? you don't know anything"
    now all I can do is making some new programs for greening my school, just at my school and we made it. we (all of the student of my school) reduce the use of plastic bags, clean our school every friday, trash bank, re-use the plastic bottle for the garden. oh yeah me with my nature lovers organisation made gardens at two corners, the gardens aren't really big but it looks beautiful with full of green even now every class at my school has their own garden outside their classes. just that's all I can do until I have degree to be heard by adult people then I can do more, with my team because I can't do it alone.
