Doomed, that's what we are, and we did it to ourselves, nothing will ever change that.
I'm actually quite flabbergasted that I'm the first one to review this documentary. I'm writing this in 2020 and so nobody found it necessary to talk or review this important documentary made in 2015. Important to me, even though I already knew about almost everything explained in Humanity From Space, because it remains an eye-opener, very well documented with facts and most of all numbers. It's like a documentary about one of my favorite websites, worldometers, where you see the numbers and statistics of all kind of stuff increasing at a staggering speed, like the world population, the fossil fuels used, the water we use or the food we eat, and all kind of other interesting and disturbing facts. The documentary is very well shot, nice images of our beloved planet, the whole evolution of our humanity explained in simple, understandable words. You don't have to be a scientist to see we're driving a very fast car at maximum speed towards a wall, and our brakes are not working, and the wall isn't moving, and we're not planning on taking our foot from that gas pedal. I'm fifty-one, childless, so what will happen in a near future isn't really my problem but I'm sure I will still witness some catastrophic events. Humanity is bound to self destruct itself, no matter what new revolutionary methods of surviving we discover. At one point our planet will be oversaturated, whether we like it or not. Nothing will change that, as humans just don't have the discipline to give up their new technologies, whether it is their transportations, electronical gadgets, or any other comfort we are used to now. We're just too selfish for that, and probably too dumb to fully understand. Inventors like Edison, Tesla, Drake and others, discoverers of new futuristic technologies, made our lives easier, but in a near future they will have caused our extinction, and I'm sure they were not thinking what consequences those inventions and discoveries would entail. This documentary should be a mandatory watch to everyone, but the truth is we just don't have the time anymore to think about important things like that, let alone do something about it, we have to be available at all times, producing and consuming is our only preoccupation, watching this documentary isn't, speaking or reviewing it even lesser apparently.
