This is a bit of a departure from my past two posts, but I just saw this film and wanted to share the experience…
Ever wondered what makes the planet tick? Ever wonder whether humanity is really having an effect on the planet and how it works? Do you have children or grand children? Want to see some amazing photography and hear some thoughtful commentary on these subjects? Got a spare 90 minute?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, treat yourself to a breathtaking, if at times depressing experience and watch the film “Home (the movie)“.
This video starts by describing the origins of life and then goes on to show how we have changed things so dramatically over the past 50 years that life may never be the same. Don’t give up before the end of the movie, because it ends on a much more positive note. The movie is freely available on YouTube and is appropriate for people of all ages. It is appropriate for schools, community groups, businesses, families or friends.
Watch the movie! Think about your life! Change the world!

We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate.
The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.
For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.
HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.
