Our planet is worth preserving
2 November 2016 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Forget egos, forget who's who. That's not what this is about.

The message of this documentary film is to save our planet. Each country, each continent. Our home.

You are taken on a worldwide tour of diverse ecological systems. You are shown how people are already struggling due to the destruction and greed of man. You will see how our consumerism contributes to this disaster in the waiting.

Watch the evidence and see the consequences of global warming for yourself. This is powerful and sobering viewing. It has made me realize how I personally can take positive action to help prevent the destruction of our planet.

Collectively, we can make a difference. Wherever you live in the world, you can decide to have a role to play. Our elected leaders will act if enough of the people they govern make this issue a top priority.

Give one hour and a half of your time, then make your own mind up.
