Starring Pete Postlethwaite as a man living alone in the devastated world of 2055, watching archive footage from 2008 and asking why climate change wasn't stopped before it was too late.

A truly wonderful actor and a very sad loss to British film and television...

Change happens at the last minute, as it did in the fifties and sixties when factories were beaching out smoke..

We are a precipice-living species..

The Age of Man

Earth has entered a new geological era dubbed The Anthropocene. A panel of scientists have voted to recognise the term and the dawn of an era.

Anthropocene means the age of man and it's origin will be back dated to the 1950's, marking when mankind began to irrevocably damage the environment eg. the hydrogen bomb tests which produced vast amounts of radioactive matter immortalised in the world's geographical records.

Scientists refer to this period in the 1950's as The Great Acceleration.

Our footprint (stupid).

Problems always solved for present needs..future is never really put in agenda, as most think easy resolve when occur. By not thinking out of box with new exploration..stay within the present and the means..not future impacts or possibility which would impact the whole..entirety.

What we need's an epidemic
Something quick to make us sick.
Sooner we're all gone the better:
So old Earth may loose our fetter.
