cap11th.jpgI’ve been following the development of a new documentary by Leonardo DiCaprio for what seems like a few years now. Currently titled 11th Hour, the film will provide balance to Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth by analyzing the state of the global environment — including imaginative and practical solutions for restoring the planet’s ecosystems. So, as well as painting a grim picture, it will also give hope, inspiration, and direction. Nice.

According to Hollywood Today, the doc is currently in production and scheduled for release sometime this year. Besides narrating, DiCaprio is also supposedly writing and producing. In a press release from 2005 annoucing the project, the people behind Global Warning and Water Planet, short films that can be seen on DiCaprio’s eco-site, are also assisting on this project. Interestingly, the entire project is being sponsored by Doyle Brunson, “renowned poker player and long time environmentalist.” Back in 2005, Brunson had this to say about the project, “I know we’ll be able to raise a lot of awareness for an issue that plagues our world and could have devastating consequences down the road if nothing is done.”

Would it have been Leo and not Gore receiving the Oscar had this film come out before Inconvenient Truth?
We’ll provide more info as the hour approaches….

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
