David Attenborough’s “The Truth about Climate Change”

Yesterday I ran into David Attenborough’s DVD The Truth about Climate Change as produced by the BBC and the Open University. It contains two parts: Are We Changing Planet Earth? and Can We Save Planet Earth? This is an excellent introduction to the challenge of global climate change, pointing out the seriousness of the challenge, the urgency to act responsbly, and providing, mainly in the second part, a set of very concrete steps individuals and societies can take. The despair viewers may feel when confronted with climate change is, therefore, always turned into positive energy. I recommend this as a top introduction and will invite my students and as many as possible of my fellow Jesuits to watch it. One cannot remain unmoved when encountering the passion of David Attenborough!
