Global warming, food and water shortages, catastrophic storms, extinction of species, plant and animal habitat loss…. The list of environmental, social and economic catastrophes affecting our planet with greater frequency and severity goes on and on. If there was a simple root cause and a fundamental solution, wouldn’t you want to know?
Earth Overshoot Executive Director Terry Spahr and his 8 Billion Angelscrew do what most of the world has yet to do in this compelling new documentary: connect the dots among all of the “downstream” symptoms of our global environmental crises with their fundamental upstream cause- our unsustainable global population. 8 Billion Angels trades political correctness for an honest assessment that dispels the population taboos. Most importantly, the film provides real solutions while there’s still a chance to save our planet and our species by quickly and dramatically altering our population and consumption trajectories.
