Is climate change real? Watch and learn. And share.

I have yet to watch the premiere of this possibly crucial new 9-part Showtime series on climate change. But I did watch the trailer:

Let us face the tumultuous future with eyes and ears and hearts wide open. See this:

Let us ground our feet into Mother Earth Below and our crown chakras into the Blue Sky Above. Let us dare to become fully alive, here, now, during this crossroads moment that we who are living in bodies during the 21st century, A.D. chose, as an aspect of our  ongoing sacred path. 

Watch And Share: Years of Living Dangerously

Have you seen the press around Years of Living Dangerously yet? We’re amazed by what’s happening over at Showtime right now and we think you will be too. Not since Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth has this much time, talent and money been put into bringing the dramatic reality of climate change into the mainstream.

We’re at a tipping point in our historic effort to end the devastating effects of Conflict Palm Oil on people and the planet, and this kind of primetime, star-studded exposure on the issue has the potential to become a catalyst for major change. But that can only happen if enough people share this gripping program with everyone they know.

To achieve the huge changes we seek, we need to spread the word beyond the choir who already know climate change is the defining crisis of our time, and this new series provides us with a great tool to do just that.

During filming, I walked with Harrison Ford down the snack food aisle of a local grocery store explaining how Conflict Palm Oil is destroying Indonesia’s forests. It was a truly memorable moment in my work as a forest advocate.

Now, I’m thrilled to share this link with you where you can watch the premiere episode of ShowTime’s groundbreaking new series on climate change, Years of Living Dangerously, which features our conversation—for free—a week before it will air on cable TV next Sunday, April 13th. (You can also watch the full episode above.)

The forest team at Rainforest Action Network has been working closely with the show’s producers for many months and we are confident that it has the potential to be the most important, highest profile story on climate change in a generation. This hard-hitting 9-part series – vetted by a team of respected climate scientists—brings together some of the biggest names in Hollywood and investigative journalism to dramatically tell the biggest story of our time to a larger audience than ever before.

Check it out yourself, then make sure every person you know who is on the fence gets a chance to see this.

The first two episodes, called “The Last Stand, Part 1 and 2,” include the story of how Conflict Palm Oil is wreaking havoc on Indonesia’s lush rainforests while spewing immense amounts of carbon pollution into the atmosphere. And crucially, the story brings the issue home by showing how each of us are connected to this growing crisis and how the actions we take to change corporate behavior can make a real difference.

There could not be a more urgent time for as many people as possible to see this unflinching program and hear the compelling message it contains—help us get this message out to everyone by sharing this video with your friends and family.
