Chris Hedges, author and activist, believes that most people have no grasp of the fragility of Earth’s environment and an inability to comprehend full-scale collapse even when it is right in front of them. His experience as a foreign correspondent living abroad has given him insight into totalitarian systems and how they silence opposition. Through all his years of travailing the world, Hedges has seen firsthand the devastating effects of environmental decline on humanity’s health, culture, and way of life.
Fortunately, Hedges has taken all these experiences and channeled them into a documentary titled ‘Collapse’. The film dives deep into the issues surrounding climate change, resource depletion, overpopulation, poverty, famine and other global crises. It provides an eye-opening look at how our current behaviors will inevitably shape our future.
Through interviews with well-known experts in the fields of science, economics and politics — including Noam Chomsky — this documentary paints a stark picture of what could happen if we don’t take action to reverse course. It also explores potential solutions from food security to renewable energy sources.
As we grapple with one disaster after another due to environmental issues like climate change, it’s more important than ever to open our eyes and acknowledge what lies ahead for us if we don’t take steps now to protect our planet. That’s why everyone should watch ‘Collapse’—to understand better why there is a need for urgent action before it’s too late. The documentary may be uncomfortable viewing but it’s essential if we are going to make positive changes in order to prevent further destruction of Earth’s life support system.
