Hope in a Changing Climate.

“Hope in a Changing Climate” is a 29min. film directed by scientist and ecologist John D. Liu. John demonstrates in this film that it is possible to rehabilitate large-scale damaged ecosystems in areas where they have been lost. This approach has been dramatically proven on the Loess Plateau in China. This highland area from 640,000 square km lays in North Central China. It is the birthplace of the Han Chinese, headwaters of The Yellow River and home to a new environmental and economic paradigm: A degraded ecosystem of more than 35,000 square km of land now teems with life and supports the sustainable economic, social and agricultural activities of its people.
