Overview

Driven by speculation that planet Earth's average temperature could rise as much as six degrees Celsius by the year 2100, the filmmakers at National Geographic speculate about the effects that each new degree would have on both mankind and the world we live in. By highlighting the effects of global warming on such areas as the Amazonian rainforests and the ice fields of Greenland, experts offer chilling insight into the possibility that man's constant quest for energy could ultimately bring about our downfall. After separating the facts from controversial speculation, the time comes to explore the means by which man could use technology and other methods to try and prevent the planet from overheating.

This is one of the best dvd sources on climate change information I have found. It is current, supported by some of the most qualified experts of our day, and I have referred to it often both for my own understanding and as an aid to help others undertand how our climate system works and what we all need to do to protect it. I have given several copies as gifts and highly recommend Mark Lynas' book, "Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet," as important supporting material. This is the dvd to have right now!

The video has a little too much "Hollywood" built in but there are enough scenes that seem very plausible. This follows the book somewhat and at times gives a real feel of the chapters descriptions of incremental temperature rise. We used this in class to get some discussion going about climate change and it did a good job of initiating a gambit of opinions about the validitaty of warming.I continue to be dumbfounded in regards to the amount of distrust we have for one another.
