A 'MUST' watch documentary for 'TODAY,' not tomorrow!!! (by ludobrockway-948-826622)
An incredible factual documentary, delving into the destruction that human beings are having on our precious planet.The documentary is incredibly insightful! The creators have gone to great extent to backup their scientific facts. This is a stunning documentary that will change the way you view your life and our fragile planet. Like the documentary Black Fish that had a great effect and change on the way the public perceive animals in captive for human entertainment, Racing Extinction shines the same light but on the world over and the effect mankind is having on it...... THE WORLD MUST SEE <more>
THIS FILM 'TODAY'!Congratulation to the Racing Extinction team and thank you. We need more people like you on this stunning world of ours!
This should be mandatory. Everybody obliged to watch this. (by deloudelouvain)
This should be a mandatory documentary in schools or on television. Everybody should be obliged to watch Racing Extinction. Not tomorrow but today. Even though I think it is already too late. Not that we could not change everything if everybody would act and think rationally. But that's the problem of our planet. Most people are driven by greed, possession, having everything as fast as possible, mass consumption etc... Nobody seems to care what the future will be for their children. I have none, and will never have any, but I'm still concerned about what we are doing to our planet. We <more>
humans are the parasite of the Earth. It could be reversed but I honestly have not much hope. Anyways, watch this, it's sometimes beautiful, sometimes very hard, but it's the truth. I cried like almost a third of the documentary, but it was worth watching it. I can only recommend this highly!
The documentary is excellent. The mentioned the main reason for global warming, however it feels like it is just a mention. It is good in a way. People who pay attention to every word in this documentary, will feel the need to watch more, to get more knowledge. I consider this to be a excellent starting point for someone who is disconnected. Most humans don't make the connection because of the media propaganda. I really like that it doesn't have a lot of graphic content. if you want graphic content and you are ready you can watch Earthlings. The best ideas from this movie is the ways <more>
they implement to change the world. There are 2 approaches that changed my hopes when i do activism. I will not spoil the movie for you. i am just going to say the video technique used in the restaurant and then in New York and then the guy who changes a whole town in Mexico business structure for a sustainable new way to earn a living.
An excellent overview of the situation which all inhabitants of the earth are facing. While I didn't much care for the "Save the Whales" mentality which bookends this documentary, I do recognize that this is a point to which the general public can relate. The core of the issue is found in the middle third of this film: acidification. To summarize; what good is saving whales, dolphins, tuna, or seahorses now if all sea life will be extinct in the 23rd century? Kelp and jellyfish excluded. That is the issue of ocean acidification which excess CO² exacerbates, so watch that <more>
portion of this documentary twice. Then perhaps watch a Ted Talk or read a book on this specific subject. I would recommend the talks given by Dr. Alex Cannara; Acidification, Climate & Energy found at youtu dot be/rzoW_cVg2hE.If you don't catch this idea in the film, I'll spell it out here. Plankton Pteropods do three things; 1 they absorb CO² and sequester it in their tiny shells which fall to the bottom of the ocean should they not get eaten. 2 Pteropods are sometimes eaten and form the base of the oceanic food chain. Nearly half the human population lives near the ocean and is part of that food chain. 3 As these bit of plankton take in CO² for nourishment, they also give off oxygen. In fact, slightly more than half of all oxygen on Earth is resupplied in this fashion.Currently Pteropods are already under duress as a species and numbers have begun to dwindle. Extinction in the 23rd century for nearly all invertebrates & vertebrates is looming - and human activities are 99% of the problem. As I wrote above, watch the middle third of this documentary closely. We have a few decades to avoid this extinction scenario. Let's act wisely.
A must watch documentary for everyone! (by Abhinav7331)
Racing Extiction, as the title clearly suggest, is about human activities that started at some point ad have made possible for species thriving for centuries to disappear in just a couple of years.This film is an eye opening for everyone who is living on this planet.The crew were not only involved in documenting some serious vile human activities, but they were also involved in more important role like educating people about the consequences of their actions.Majority of us blame automobiles for the increasing pollution these days, but this film takes you to places where you might question the <more>
food we eat: Milk, Cheese, etc.. As shown in the movie, the way we have started consuming dairy products has led to increased demand for them, and in turn, has led to more cows, buffalo which in turn gives out methane, a gas more potent than Carbon Dioxide. Carbon Dioxide can cause serious damage to sea life.It is sad and overwhelming at some points. But very inspirational. This documentary should be shown in every school and college.If you haven't seen this film yet, watch it. It will be worth your time and money.
Excellent documentary with some insane reviews (by bobbsswiggy)
This documentary is very captivating and very informative. It reaches beyond the general idea of doing what you can and shows you what others do and have been doing for a number of years to help towards animal conservation. It's message is clear, and the cinematography is absolutely breath taking. It's eye-opening, unnerving, and beautifully shot, and should be seen in order to appreciate the extent of this problem. There are reviews here which bash at the directors, etc for "flying around in their planes and cars, polluting the earth even more", and some insane claims that <more>
it's just promoting Elon Musk and his companies. For anyone who watched until the end, it clearly states "The filmmakers and SavingSpecies are restoring 10 acres of rainforest in coastal Ecuador in order to offset the carbon footprint of the film, protecting biodiversity, and increase species' chances of survival", and Tesla are shown for approximately 7 minutes, with a very short input by Elon himself. Watch this documentary, it's worth every second.
Clear, Fairly-paced, to the point n stunning visuals make this an awesome treat. (by muvi-fan-73)
Racing extinction is a documentary about how, human interference have directly or indirectly eliminated most of the species in recent years. It describes at this pace we will be eliminating 50% of the known species by 2050.The documentary presents us with options how we can deal with this. It shows how mindset of people can be influenced for good and right. It gives us the message of lighting a candle instead cursing the darkness. At the end it is shown how pictures or a film can prove out beneficial in making the role of human to realize their responsibility.Change is always resisted. People <more>
don't like change. We may be fault at many things, but it's never too late to correct ourselves and in this case, it is high time!
for all the cast; you are one of few respectful unique documentary movie makers. I knew the world it going straight to that dead zone; but I never know it is going with this speed even this acceleration.but after all I realized that the earth mother nature she is not going to die. she will survive. she already survived for millions of years.she will live, we won't. so I used this as a message subject. the message I sent to almost everyone I know to watch this important movie.About the movie itself; here is what I think is the tiny bad thing is I felt like you and I mean who handled the <more>
documentation itself wanted to show too many things in very sort time from my prospective. This movie I think it can be in sequels of at least 5 parts. Of course you delivered the message so perfectly. but it wasn't a full one.
