Powered flight is one of the greatest of all human achievements, and international cooperation has created an extraordinary global system of easy, safe travel that brings benefits to billions. But flight today may be more dangerous than we think, not to our lives as passengers, but to the Earth itself.
“Sky Gods," a new documentary produced by Sarah Robertson and Bernice Notenboom tells the story of one devoted frequent flier’s search for the facts behind this new fear of flight, and what we can do to save both our planet and our wings.
It follows climate journalist Bernice Notenboom around the globe looking for answers and solutions. At each destination we hear from key protagonists: airlines, airports, biofuel developers, carbon agents, air traffic controllers, social psychologists, government policymakers, and us the passengers. This is a story of actions, collaboration, solutions, and pioneering in the race to decide the biggest travel story of our time. Sky Gods tells the story of choice and change - how to fly into the future.
