A fundraiser for Biodiversity for a Livable Climate

Symbiotic Earth: How Lynn Margulis rocked the boat and started a scientific revolution is a new documentary created by award-winning filmmaker John Feldman. It weaves a complex story about how the radical ideas of scientist Lynn Margulis are fostering a new approach to understanding life which encourages a symbiotic and cooperative lifestyle. It strikes at the very core of the mechanistic worldview that success comes only through competitive struggle.
