For most of the 70-odd-odd David Attenborough on television. The questions about life and death have been framed. In terms of predators versus prey. It is only relatively recently that the documentary film began to overcome the dangers of the climate crisis that faced us all.
Sir David Attenborough recently released a lifetime film on the planet. We looked back at his life, observing world wildlife and humanitarian impact on nature.
The life of animals and plants may be closer to us besides we want to admit:
But extraordinary films like this need to move us to act instead of crying if we have hopes of saving them. The 75-minute film brings an audience in the course of the planet’s threshold discovery, we must not exceed, not only for the stability of our planet but for the future of humanity. It offers a solution that we can and must be applied now. If we protect the earth’s life support system.
At David Attenborough last year: a lifetime on our planet, veteran broadcasters presented “witness statements” on the decline in the environment documented during his life, attracting political and personal levers to force the audience to act. Now, in his latest film for Netflix, Attenborough only focuses on facts.

The boundaries that violate unusual output are large enough to display a little Attenborough and even animals. Conversely, the focus is on science from the decline in our planet. Establishing in details that have not changed the extent to which. The degradation of the earth – and the consequences of the disaster than anything except drastic action.
Attenborough handed over the floor to Johan Rockström:
The Light Director of the Potsdam Institute for climate impact research. To explain the “most important scientific discovery of our time”. In 2009, Rockström identified nine natural processes where all life on earth depends. And boundaries in each of which cannot be surpassed without harming humanity.
“The Planetary Limitation Framework” functions as a film structure. With the support of Voiceover Attenborough and the Global Assembly of experts. Rockström specifies the impact of anthropogenic change in nine processes. And where we stand concerning “irreversible critical points” for each. In a minimum of four – climate change, biodiversity. It changes land and nitrogen systems. And phosphorus imbalances we have operated in high-risk zones.
Dramatic graphics show the earth in fire or crushes such as glass. And the progress of an unparalleled human army. Trying to emphasize urgency. More interesting is the emotional testimony of scientists. Who has been abandoned to document? The decline too long? Breaking boundaries are the necessary bridges between scientific understanding. And mainstream about a problem. That is too framed in terms of plastic straws.
This is more ambitious in its purpose to educate than the average natural documentary.
Not only determines the scope of the crisis but drilling into detail. Time run 75 minutes solid, pacing fast, and – for those who have been transferred. By the fact as many wildlife snippets – can’t be dated. When the conversation turns into a solution. The viewers will be left shaken on a challenge scale. But sure the need to act.
To encourage everyone’s participation, it still disappoints that in the proposed pathway to stability. The exact weight is given for individual consumption (healthy eating, reducing waste). Because it is an aggressive political action (every decade). But the overall impression and a durable are urgent.
Rockström emphasizes the disaster trajectory has reversed before. Panic over the ozone layer, which disappeared in the 1980s, spurred a joint political action that caused recovery. “It was fantastic to testify: scientists raised the alarm and the world acted,” said Attenborough. This film sounds like an alarm as before. The question is, will we hear it?
