Years of Living Dangerously

Climate change is one of today's most hotly debated topics, not only in America but around the world. This series features firsthand accounts from people who have been affected by the occurrence, with a team ofcorrespondents from the entertainment and news industries traveling around the world to report on effects of global warming and what people are doing to find solutions for it. Among the stories told are Oscar-winner Matt Damon's reporting on the health impact of heat waves around the globe, Golden Globe-winner Michael C. Hall's traveling to Bangladesh to get a vision of the future, and Emmy-winning journalist Lesley Stahl's heading to Greenland to examine the fate of the Arctic. Actors Don Cheadle, Harrison Ford and Jessica Alba are among the other entertainment icons who contribute reports to the hourlong episodes. The roster of executive producers includes James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The End of the Line

The End of the Line is a powerful film about one of the world's most disturbing problems - over-fishing. Advances in fishing technology mean whole species of wild fish are under threat and the most important stocks we eat are predicted to be in a state of collapse by 2050. The film points the finger at those most to blame, including celebrity chefs, and shows what we can do about it. This is not just a film, it is also a campaign - for sustainable consumption of fish, for marine protected areas to allow the sea to recover, and for a new ethic of responsible fishing.

Call of Life

From over fishing of our oceans and depleting fish stocks to dangerous low levels; from toxins, emissions and pollution entering and chocking the atmosphere and making the hole in the ozone layer bigger and causing more harmful sunrays to penetrate through then their should be; thus warming the oceans, melting the ice, and threatening animals environments; from rainforest being bulldozed down to create grazing land for cattle and commercial development thus destroying natural environmental structure and animals habitats, animal species going extinct, and more.

These problems are caused by humans and humans only; it's scary, it really is, and will only serve to get worse if the human race takes an apathetic attitude towards the planet it ultimately needs to survive; yours and my planet.

We are dependent on the earth's biodiversity for survival and without it were in big trouble.
