It was exactly three months ago that I got a chance to meet Louie Psihoyos, the Academy-award winning producer of the movie The Cove. As luck would have it, I happened to be at a movie festival where he was present for the viewing of his latest movie – Racing Extinction.
Racing Extinction, which may become the most watched documentary in history on December 2, shines a bright light on the mass animal extinction and the global climate change that is taking place at an unprecedented speed. Aside from the amazing state-of-the-art equipment that makes the cinematography quiet a sight to behold, the movie leaves you with a need for action on climate change.
Many people believe that there is very little that they can do when it comes to climate change, and some choose to ignore the topic completely. However, even a little act can go a long way. The #startwith1thing campaign, which encourages one to make small changes in their lives, whether it be in changing the diet, making the house more sustainable, or using more environmentally friendly modes of transportation.
If you are still skeptical, be sure to watch the world debut of Racing Extinction on the Discovery channel on December 2, 2015 at 9pm et/pt. We only have one Earth and the best way to help it is first to take a closer look at and understand what is happening to our planet.
