'The 11th Hour' (2007) is created, produced & narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, it focuses on the state of our natural environment & the impact humans have had on our failing planet. Contributors include politicians, scientists & environmental activists. Topics addressed in the film include global warming, deforestation, mass species extinction & the reduction in the ocean habitats.
The film concludes with potential solutions to the problems that planet Earth is faced with. It allows us to think about our activity & question what is really important in our ever-changing world.
It’s a very important documentary that I feel everyone must see, to see how our activities are having an effect on the precious, beautiful planet Earth. It hard to watch the clips that are shown throughout the film without angry & upset about what we have truly done the environment. But climate is something that is happening & is the most important point of concern for the whole planet. Humans caused it, but humans can change it.
"Global warming is not only the number one environmental challenge we face today, but one of the most important issues facing all of humanity. We all have to do our part to raise awareness about global warming and the problems we as a people face in promoting a sustainable environmental future for our planet" - Leonardo DiCaprio
