[edit] Information

Everywhere you turn there is confusion about the current state of our planet; with talk of rainforest destruction, global warming, extinction of species, rising sea levels and drought. In this series Sir David Attenborough brings his matter-of-fact clarity to the subject, investigating the latest scientific research to explain the situation in simple terms for the first time.

Over the course of three programmes, his quest takes him on a truly global trail, from Kenya to Ecuador, from the Phillipines and the Maldives to Easter Island, and from South Africa to California.

[edit] Is There a Crisis?

Together with leading experts, Sir David Attenborough examines the latest scientific evidence in order to discover if the planet's ecosystems are really in crisis. If so, he asks how it could have come about, and what is so different now that prevents certain species from adapting to survive, as they did in the past?

[edit] Why Is There a Crisis?

Sir Attenborough presents some stark facts. He states that humans are now triggering a mass extinction on a similar scale to that which wiped out the dinosaurs -- but at an unprecedented rate. He investigates the five main activities of mankind that are the most likely contributory factors: Habitat loss, Introduced species, Pollution, Over-harvesting, Islandisation.

[edit] The Future of Life

The future of life on earth depends on our ability to take action. Many individuals are doing what they can, but real success can only come if there's a change in our societies and our economics and in our politics. I've been lucky in my lifetime to see some of the greatest spectacles that the natural world has to offer. Surely we have a responsibility to leave for future generations a planet that is healthy, inhabitable by all species.
