I am writing to tell you about the powerful new environmental
film by NRDC Trustee Leonardo DiCaprio.
The new film, "The 11th Hour," documents the environmental
crises we face and the solutions we must begin to implement.
Please take a look at the trailer here:
Featuring reformer Mikhail Gorbachev, physicist Stephen Hawking
and Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai and fifty other
intriguing thinkers, "The 11th Hour" documents the grave
problems facing the planet's life systems. Global warming,
deforestation, mass species extinction and depletion of the
oceans' habitats are all addressed.
I'm sure you'll agree, however, that the most powerful element
of "The 11th Hour" is not a portrait of a planet in crisis, but
an offering of hope and solutions. The film ends with a call for
restorative action through reshaping human activity.
"The 11th Hour" opened on August 17 in New York and Los Angeles. On
August 24th it opened in other cities, and in the following weeks
across the country. It would be great if you could go see it and
bring a friend. You can go to http://www.11thhouraction.com
