We came across this documentary recently. France has done it again...bravo! (such as our French car seen in the photo to your right)

On June 5, 2009, this film was simultaneously released around the world in over 180 countries, in several different languages, and has been published for free on YouTube (in full length). The images display the extraordinary beauty of our planet as well as the widespread devastation we humans have managed to cause in a very short period of time (if we cannot create like the gods, surely we can destroy like gods! E. Becker, The Denial of Death, 1973: 85).

Both the images and the music create a deep sense of awe and humility.

The documentary makes a compelling argument: we have reached a point that is beyond pessimism. We must work in solidarity with a creative sense of urgency and in such a way that is intelligent and selfless.

Please, take the time to share with us your thoughts.
