Earth Emergency

PLAY


Narrated by American actor Richard Gere and featuring leading climate scientists, Earth Emergency examines four of the major warming feedback loops threatening our planet: Forests, Permafrost, Albedo and Atmosphere.

Narrated by Richard Gere and including contributions from student climate change activist, Greta Thunberg, His Holiness, the Dalai Lama and distinguished scientists and environmentalists, this gorgeous film adds the missing piece of the climate puzzle and offers urgent hope. While everyone has heard of global warming, few understand how environmental feedback loops amplify the warming even further, something which is not being taken into account by policy makers.

With captivating illustrations, stunning footage and interviews with leading climate scientists as well as support from Greta Thunberg and Jane Fonda among others, this revealing film examines how human activity is setting off dangerous warming loops that are pushing the climate to a point of no return - and what we need to do to stop them!
