Years of Living Dangerously (2014)

The film Years of Living Dangerously puts a human face on the climate change debate, and on the impacts of climate change. It is the first episode in a series and is available for viewing here. The official site is here.

Hollywood celebrities and respected journalists span the globe to explore the issues of climate change and cover intimate stories of human triumph and tragedy. 

In this first episode, we’re taken across the world to get various climate-related answers from experts, as well as residents who have been reduced to praying for rain in Texas and examining forests in Indonesia that sit on peat, a substance that could release ample carbon into the air in the event of a forest fire.

Some of Hollywood’s brightest stars, like Don Cheadle and Harrison Ford, go on their own expeditions measuring methane with NASA scientists and trying to understand why some accept manmade climate change and others say droughts and extreme weather are no more than acts of God. Meanwhile, journalist Thomas L. Friedman explores a drought that influenced conflict in three Middle Eastern countries.
