"Journey to Planet Earth - Plan B: Mobilizing to Save Civilization"

"Plan B: Mobilizing To Save Civilization" is based on the book by
environmental visionary Lester Brown.  The 90 minute program delivers a
clear and unflinching message - either confront the realities of climate

political states.

featured in the program. Matt Damon is the host and narrator.
