World Premiere of Naomi Klein's 'This Changes Everything'

Climate

This weekend is the world premiere of the documentary This Changes Everything. The film is directed by Naomi Klein's husband, journalist and filmmaker Avi Lewis (The Take) and it's produced in conjunction with Klein's best-selling book of the same name. It will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 13 and will be available in theaters in the U.S. and on iTunes on Oct. 20.

Narrated by Klein, the film argues that climate change is the greatest threat humanity has ever faced, but it also "offers us the opportunity to address and correct the inhumane systems that have created it."

"Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change," says the film's website.

In the movie, Klein says, "So here's the big question: What if global warming isn't only a crisis? What if it's the best chance we're ever going to get to build a better world? Change or be changed."

The coronavirus is certainly scary, but despite the constant reporting on total cases and a climbing death toll, the reality is that the vast majority of people who come down with COVID-19 survive it. Just as the number of cases grows, so does another number: those who have recovered.

In mid-March, the number of patients in the U.S. who had officially recovered from the virus was close to zero. That number is now in the tens of thousands and is climbing every day. But recovering from COVID-19 is more complicated than simply feeling better. Recovery involves biology, epidemiology and a little bit of bureaucracy too.

The future for the world's oceans often looks grim. Fisheries are set to collapse by 2048, according to one study, and 8 million tons of plastic pollute the ocean every year, causing considerable damage to delicate marine ecosystems. Yet a new study in Nature offers an alternative, and more optimistic view on the ocean's future: it asserts that the entire marine environment could be substantially rebuilt by 2050, if humanity is able to step up to the challenge.

Bread has been a source of basic nutrition for centuries, the holy trinity being wheat, maize and rice. It has also been the reason for a lot of innovation in science and technology, from millstones to microbiological investigations into a family of single-cell fungi called Saccharomyces.
