Hope In A Changing Climate

If you ever needed to see that it is possible to rehabilitate our earth in even the most challenging situations then this is for you.

This documentary features stories from China, Rwanda and Ethiopia and shows how large areas of land that are in a state of complete environmental ruin can been regenerated.

In Rwanda the government recognised that the value of the land in it's natural state was more valuable that when it was exploited for it's natural resources.  One of the my favourite quotes from the documentary is: "Climate change is better withstood with trees.  You know humans no matter how intelligent we are, no matter how capable we are with all our technologies, we are helpless in the face of climate change. We have not yet properly understood the miracle preformed by trees".

Grab a cuppa, put your feet up for 30 minutes and check out Hope In A Changing Climate

Let me know what you think.
