Dr. Walther passed this on to me....
Three days before the start of the international conference on biodiversity in Japan (Convention on Biological Diversity,18-29 October 2010), freeeye.tv in collaboration with the biologist Dr Bruno Walther launches the video project www.crisisoflife.net
This educational non-profit video project, accompanied by texts and weblinks, hopes to inform about the ‘crisis of life’ itself.
The negative impacts of the biodiversity crisis on our quality of life will only increase unless the sustainable management of the planet’s living resources becomes a global concern and leads to changes in policies and management on local, national and international levels.
Because this topic is still not receiving sufficient attention by the media, Dr Walther (Taiwan Endemic Species Research Institute) and video journalist Klaus Bardenhagen have interviewed several experts on biodiversity over the past two years, in which they talk about the threat to and the value of biodiversity, as well as possible solutions to the biodiversity crisis.
The consequences of continuing business-as-usual could be devastating, with species extinctions and ecosystem collapses on a global scale. To avoid such calamities, we need a new kind of global governance which maintains biodiversity and ecosystems as a global commons cared for by all of humanity.
