What is it doing to us as thoughtful human beings as we face the overwhelming challenges of:
-Peaking fossil fuel flow rates?
-Critically degraded ecosystems?
-A changing climate?
-An exploding global population?
-Teetering global economies?
-An unstable political climate?
And what is it doing to the rest of the life on this planet?
What a Way to Go looks at the current global situation and asks the most important questions of all:
-How did we get here?
-Why do we keep destroying the planet?
-What do we truly want?
-Can we find a vision that will empower us to do what is necessary to survive, and even thrive, in the coming decades?
"What a Way to Go is the advanced course for those who are intellectually and emotionally prepared to examine critically our way of life - the viewer takes away ideas, even subversive ones.", -A comparison with The 11th Hour by Keith Thomas at the Nature and Society Forum
