Well done documentary but, apparently did not have much of an impact. Since its release we have had the BP disaster in the Gulf Coast, and a tremendous increase in fracking of oil and gas wells across the country contributing to the pollution of much of our ground water supply(and yes, earthquakes). Let's not forget the ongoing mountaintop removal operations in Appalacia. They wont stop till they've extracted every ounce of coal they can get out of that poor region of the country. Oh yea... There is that chemical spill last week that poisoned the water supply of 300,000 people in 9 counties of West -by-God Virginia. This also relatating to the coal extraction industry. It seems that every week I hear of another railroad tank car exploding while hauling oil from the Alberta Tar Sands across our country. Look for one coming through a town near you! That brings us to that infamous monster bearing down on us known as The Keystone Pipeline. Sorry, but I have every reason to believe that it will be approved. This film was done seven years ago and a lot has happened since then.....none of it good! This is but a short list of the environmental disasters that plague our planet. Dicaprio needs to do an updated film. Perhaps one that is a little more KICK A_ _!. Thanks for listening. Fukushima fish fry anyone?

The 11th Hour is one of the most important and informative documentaries of our day. Humanity must take the threat of our global environmental crises seriously. The clock is ticking. One of the points that this program states is that we must raise our level of consciousness about the inter-connectivity of all life on our planet since all life as we know it is in the balance. We can't count on governments or politicians. We need every person on earth to understand the issues and to care about them. We all have to do what we can to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. There are many things we can do as individual's. We can all use stainless steel water bottles. We can recycle, reuse and reduce our waste. We can eat less or no meat. We can compost. And those are just a few of many things we, as individuals, can do.

I wish every school and university globally would show this documentary. Humans are very clever creatures and if we want to work towards healing the planet, we have the technology and resources in order to make positive and significant changes for a better future. The first step for change is in knowing what the problems are. Humanity must awaken. The time is now.

It was interesting to me as a biologist, but it bored my high school students to tears. Too many talking heads, not enough footage of actual environmental events.

Very informative. A good addition to my documentary collection. Good technologies are being created and developed but as usual, politics and the money mentality keep getting in the way.
As much as I like this documentary, I feel that it falls short of getting to the real root of the problem, which imo was mentioned briefly, but seemingly avoided mostly.

This is an insightful documentary and joy to watch. It reflects mans ever increasing demands on our environment and the impact we are having on our world (or as one commentator put it "Our Biosphere"). The quest for new alternative forms of energy and how we could begin to right the wrongs of the past could have been given a more detailed examination. Nonetheless a wonderful a watch and something I recommend to 1st year students looking for an introduction to the energy usage.
