Tune in for "Earth on Edge," a television special which airs tonight at 8:00 pm. "EoE" explores what's happening to the Earth's capacity to support nature and human civilization. Consider: 50% of the world's wetlands lost in one century / 50% of the world's forest cleared / 70% of the world's major marine fisheries depleted / Nearly 60% of coral reefs declining. Producer Bill Moyers' stories describe what we've done to Earth and what we can still do to turn things around, if we act quickly. It is a powerful film with a compelling message.
