Description

"Until now, most of the discussion about global warming has been about its destructive impact on the climate, about melting sea ice, about the potential for massive crop failure, and about the millions of refugees who will have to flee from rising sea levels. And, while these things are terrifying in their own right, no one, except for a small group of people in the scientific community, has been recently talking much about the E-word: Extinction. Well it's time we started talking about extinction, because if we continue on the path we' re on, if we continue pumping fossil fuels into the atmosphere, it won't just mean the end to the Arctic sea ice, or the end miles of shoreland. It could mean the end of most large complex life forms on Earth. That would include us. The possibility that global warming could lead to a mass extinction, like our planet has seen five times in the deep geologic past, is the subject of the new documentary: Last Hours."
