This sounds a little scary . . .Usually when humans mess with nature they create a disaster.

It says it cannot be viewed outside Canada, what a shame for those in the US.

We need to save our planet by eating less meat and go green.

This isn't anything new. Man has constantly played God with the earth and the living creatures thereon he feels justified in wantonly killing. Man HAS to kill, so he kills as much of the planet as he can, as many animals as he can, and as many people as he can. Man is a blight to the planet he lives on; a killer of life.

I watched this show, first thought this is a solution for the people on the planet who are not willing to make any changes in their own lives along with government for back up. It looked like it could work but we may have to sacrifice one part of the planet to keep the greed flowing on other parts worth saving. The thought that oh we need to practice somewhere before a full scale attempt takes place. You can get CBC doc by going to

Unfortunately, with all the fence-sitting over the whole climate issue, a scenario like this looks ever more likely.

We are already experimenting with warming our climate.
So we get to find out how else we can screw up, O Joy!

Great show, great comments - unfortunately there are not enough of us who truly care - let's not give up but continue to fight!

I haven't had time to watch this, glad I can see it online. The idea is this going to be anything like "Better Living Through Chemistry"? 'Cause we all know how THAT turned out! Well, I suppose we could hasten our own demise and at least save the planet from ourselves this way. I agree with Edward Craig...O joy!
