BBC Documentary:  Earth Under Water

Published on Jan 15, 2013

A disaster waiting to happen in Earth Under Water ….
Imagine sea levels rising to over 70 metres… Eminent climatologists think another Great Flood is inevitable if current CO2 emissions continue. Based on research by NASA astro-biologist and paleontologist Professor Peter Ward and a group of respected American climatologists.

Earth Under Water is an eye-opening documentary uses scientific evidence past and present, archive footage, location photography and CGI to explore the terrifying consequences should the atmosphere’s CO2 levels treble over the next 100 to 300 years, as predicted.  

Step by step, it paints a chilling picture of the world as the sea levels rise from between one and 70 metres, unravelling the science behind this cataclysm, revealing when it could strike and what its impact would be on humanity.

The film also questions experts and politicians about what measures can be taken now to stop the current rise of CO2 emissions, and explores how extreme engineering will buy us time. But the message of this film is stark, spelling out in graphic detail the Earth’s apocalyptic future that we have been avoiding.

      THE END IS NIGH….doomers and gloomers !

      according to teachings the “world ended with water ..NOA ARK et al)
      also next time it is with “fire” ….

      I am begining to question the “interlect” of the “academics”….
      People who are “self taught” TV-internet et al deserve more respect than the
      academia-institutionalised-doctrination dished out by “certification” …
      We seem to have lost the “plot” … “lost our marbles” crudely put !

      It is so “un-real” what we read today and so “distorted” in logic/common-sense.

      the above a good example.

      sorry if I offend any interlectuals butI learn more from their disagreements than their endorsements.

      We have been warned of the threat. Our great grandchildren will pay the price for our inaction. Georgetown and Guyana’s coastal region will be no more.
