See Leonardo DiCaprio travel the world and talk to scientists and world leaders about the dramatic effects of climate change.
The film was revealed at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2016, and will officially debut today, on October 30, 2016 on the National Geographic Channel. The documentary was directed by filmmaker Fisher Stevens, and produced by Martin Scorsese.
At the Toronto International Film Festival, DiCaprio stated: "We wanted to create a film that gave people a sense of urgency, that made them understand what particular things are going to solve this problem. We bring up the issue of a carbon tax, for example, which I haven't seen in a lot of documentaries. Basically, sway a capitalist economy to try to invest in renewables, to bring less money and subsidies out of oil companies. These are the things that are really going to make a massive difference. It's gone beyond, as we talk about in the film, simple, individual actions. We need to use our vote ... We cannot afford to have political leaders out there that do not believe in modern science or the scientific method or empirical truths ... We cannot afford to waste time having people in power that choose to believe in the 2 percent of the scientific community that is basically bought off by lobbyists and oil companies. They are living in the stone ages. They are living in the dark ages. We need to live in the future."
