Stream It Or Skip It: ‘Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet’ on Netflix, in Which David Attenborough Explains Why Earth is (Almost) Doomed

Netflix’s relationship with international treasure David Attenborough continues with Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet, a sobering documentary about how close humanity is to “a Mad Max future.” Please note, no matter how much you love Fury Road, this is not a good thing. Attenborough presents this 73-minute film version of Swedish scientist Johan Rockstrom’s book of the same name, which outlines nine categorical tipping points in Earth’s current path to environmental apocalypse. (Spoiler alert: it’s all humanity’s fault.) So note, this isn’t your usual Attenborough doc, since we get dozens of dire warnings and only one cute monkey reaction shot — although it also offers hope as a chaser for all its hard knowledge, so don’t just deep sigh and switch over to Sweet Tooth just yet.
