Do we really only have 7 years left to fix climate change before we hit an ecological apocalypse? If so, why are we downplaying the biggest problem?

The earth is telling us we must change or we will also die.”

— Dr Sailesh Rao, Star of Countdown to Year Zero

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, October 7, 2019 / — As climate strikers take to the streets and the Amazon burns, COUNTDOWN TO YEAR ZERO poses the most important question. What if one simple lifestyle change could actually reverse climate change? If so, why does the media and society at large consistently downplay and even scoff at this solution? This documentary addresses that specific issue and offers a concrete solution. Hint: it involves taking personal responsibility along with demanding government and corporate accountability.

Countdown to Year Zero will have its theatrical debut at the Chelsea Film Festival on Sunday, October 20th at 1pm at AMC LOEWS at 312 West 34th street, NYC.

Wise, Rowdy Girl Sanctuary's Renee King-Sonnen, social media influencers Earthling Ed and James Aspey and TEDx speaker Genesis Butler – and featuring the visionary systems analyst Dr. Sailesh Rao – this is the most important story of our lifetimes!
