Pleistocene Park

Synopsis

The clock is ticking. How can we prevent the worst-case scenario of global environmental catastrophe? Can two Russian scientists stave off the worst by reshaping humanity’s relationship with the natural world by settling all contemporary wooly animals in Siberia. They want to restore the Ice Age “mammoth steppe” ecosystem and avoid a catastrophic feedback loop leading to runaway global warming.
