Examining the links between evolution, consciousness, and our future on this planet
Faced with a crisis of unprecedented proportion and scale, one might naturally wonder how exactly we got to this point. Doing so however raises the question "is the same species that engineered climate change capable of reversing it?"
The new documentary The 12th Hour is the first to tackle the existential threat of climate change from the perspective of evolutionary biology. Featuring a variety of experts across various scientific disciplines, the film asks hard questions about humanity's shared history and how that informs where we could be headed as both a species and a planet. Shedding new light on the reasons why this problem seems so uniquely intractable, The 12th Hour posits that the answer may very well be hardwired into us.
