Earth's Last Day

Millions of years ago "climate change" came virtually overnight for non-avian dinosaurs and wiped them out.  The same could happen for humans with their push-button nuclear weapons.  The dinosaurs, at least, didn't author their own destruction.

The possibility of a global wipe-out hangs over our heads like the sky -- it's always there.  We've had some close calls.  Tomorrow (9-26-1983) is the anniversary of Stanislav Petrov's decision that probably saved the world from nuclear annihilation.  How many people have even heard of him?

After thinking about this for a few minutes -- more than a few -- I decided to do a short movie that would show a way we could live with nukes.  I should say, most of us could live with nukes.  Keep in mind it's not the nukes that are the threat, but the people threatening to use them.  They're a family of sorts, a very small minority.

My movie is whimsical, short, silent, reflects a poor man's budget but my best creative effort.  I am willing to bet most of you will enjoy its visual aspects, if nothing else.  For men, at least, I would all but bet my life on that point.  Nevertheless, it is suitable for all audiences.  I invite you to give it a try.

George Ford Smith is the author of eight books, including The Flight of the Barbarous RelicEyes of Fire: Thomas Paine and the American Revolution, and The Fall of Tyranny, the Rise of Liberty.  He is also a filmmaker whose latest work is a whimsical tale about the threat of nuclear annihilation, Last Day.
