Synopsis
This comprehensive exploration of the environmental movement examines the grassroots and global activism that have spanned fifty years, going from a focus on conservation to today's concern over climate change. The film's five acts cover these people and stories: David Brower and the Sierra Club's battle to halt dams in the Grand Canyon; Lois Gibbs and Love Canal residents' struggle against 20,000 tons of toxic chemicals; Paul Watson and Greenpeace's campaigns to save whales and baby harp seals; Chico Mendes and Brazilian rubber-tappers' fight to save the Amazon rainforest; and Bill McKibben and the 25-year effort to address the impossible issue - climate change.
