Violent EarthUnknown - 2010
Like any celestial body, the Earth was born in violence. But our lowly human perspective creates the impression that our planet is stable, that our atmosphere will always nurture and protect us. How naive are such expectations? This program gives viewers a harrowing look at our "pale blue dot" as it experiences more destructive natural disasters with each passing year. From visits to areas affected by the 2004 southeast Asian tsunami to investigations of the massive fault threatening Istanbul, the film gets to the bottom of some key questions, such as: Is life on Earth getting more dangerous? And, what can we do to prevent future calamities?
