How much irreversible change to our atmosphere has already occurred? Can we control the devastating effects that the burning fossil fuels will cause? If there is not an immediate global initiative to save the planet, what will the future hold?

In the last half of the 20th century, scientists began understanding that industrialization and the effects of explosive population growth were affecting the fundamental structure and composition of earth's atmosphere. Man's ever-increasing thirst for energy, quenched by the burning of fossil fuels, has dramatically increased greenhouse gases in the lower atmosphere. We are now experiencing the first impact of these accumulating gases: A general warming of the planet. This 2-disc set examines and explains this phenomenon, and looks into the future where other, more deadly impacts are predicted to follow. In the first decade of the 21st century, we find ourselves at the precipice of a dangerous, rising storm.

Shot in High-Definition this series is presented and narrated by Bradley Whitford.
