Last Hours

A full showing below of the new climate change documentary short Last Hours, narrated by Thom Hartmann and directed by Leila Conners.  Widely praised by a range of climate change activists mentioned at the end, the documentary is summed as showing "how much we have to learn from our planet's history concerning the potent threat of trapped methane."  More about the film here.

Greenpeace International Executive Director Kumi Naidoo calls Last Hours "a captivating, extremely compelling appeal meant to awaken politicians and business leaders to take climate change action and stop runaway, catastrophic climate change.  Few films have managed to capture the sense of urgency as well as Last Hours.  In the context of science telling us that emissions need to peak by 2015 and then come down, and with politicians doing little to reflect this urgency, this is a much needed asset for the climate movement.”
