[node:summary]Environment video that strikes at the heart of human self-destruction.

This video starts out with nice music and beautiful scenes of the variety of Mother Earth. Halfway through, the harsh truth emerges: Smokestacks spewing gray clouds appear in place of blue sky; blood-soaked animal carcasses illustrate poaching; landscaped decimated by wildfires sport scorched stalks where lush trees once stood. The scenes become more and more heartbreaking, the song "We Live in a Beautiful World" provides the backdrop and highlights the contrast as the video concludes, "Is this worth saving? It's up to you."
