Changing the climate change story: Discovery Channel’s FINAL HOUR
Climate change isn't just a problem requiring solutions, it's a seismic re-framing of our world that calls into question the core cultural assumptions which define the post-industrial age and civilization. To solve it involves nothing less than a transformative vision, a new story, another paradigm-shift for which storytelling can and must be the first line of offense. Where story goes the world is sure to follow. The Discovery Channel show, FINAL HOUR, to be seen by an audience of 1.4 billion people in 170 countries, is providing that vision.
