Much of our population currently lives with hopeful delusions about climate change. These delusions, many of which are built in by evolution, hamper our ability to meaningfully address the problem. Our brains evolved to solve short-term challenges for our survival. Climate change is a long-term challenge to our survival. Can we bridge the gap between these modes of thinking?

The brutally honest 12th Hour includes insight from noted evolutionary biologists, climate scientists, cognitive researchers, and psychologists. Visionary thinkers like Peter Russell, Dr. Paul Piff, Dr. Kari Norgaard and dozens of the brightest minds in academia lay out an unflinching look at mankind: our past, our abilities, our shortcomings and what may be humankind's final destination.

If we have any hope of surviving the changes we’ve locked in to our climate, we need to be honest with ourselves and recognize our limitations. The 12th Hour lays out out biases so that we may overcome them.

Narrated by EMMY-nominated actor David Morse. Produced by Susan Kucera, the multi award winning director of Living in the Future's Past produced by Jeff Bridges.

** Streaming rights not available for Post Secondary Institutions. **
