With the help of over fifty of the world's most prominent thinkers and activists, including reformer Mikhail Gorbachev, physicist Stephen Hawking, and Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai, “The 11th Hour” documents the grave problems facing the planet's life systems. Global warming, deforestation, mass species extinction, and depletion of the oceans' habitats are all addressed.

However, the most powerful element of “The 11th Hour” is not a portrait of a planet in crisis, but an offering of hope and solutions. The film ends with a call for restorative action through reshaping human activity.

“The 11th Hour” is opening on August 17th in New York and Los Angeles. On the 24th it opens in other cities, and in the following weeks across the country. It would be great if you could go see it and bring a friend. You can go to www.11thhouraction.com [1] to get more information on the movie and when it will play near you.

We need the message of this movie to hit as far and wide as possible.The hope is us. Let's begin. Thank You, Leonardo DiCaprio LeonardoDiCaprio@11thhouraction.com [2]

Talking Points the 11th Hour Website:

1) This is a human issue about the extinction of our species and our inability to continue to live on this planet without massive change. The earth has massive regenerative power, but humans will not survive. We must adapt appropriately to our biosphere.
2) The time for action is NOW. This generation is the one that must make change, as we have very little time left. Most of solutions are available now. We as citizens, leaders, and consumers have the opportunity to help integrate these solutions into governmental policy and every day living.
3) Energy is the key to solving our environmental crisis. Energy from renewable sources such as solar and wind need to be massively integrated into our life. Modern life needs to be redesigned.
4) Go see the movie, and bring 5 friends. Opens August 17th in Los Angeles and New York, with a wider national release on August 24th.
