Greenwood and Hamber suggested three reasons for the decline in the Maya civilization. The first reason which was also supported by Alma Norman in the book ‘People who came’ is an outbreak of diseases which swept through Mayan city-States killing many.

Many states in the U.S. legalized forced sterilization. North Carolina approved by the Eugenics Board and written into law in 1933 started its journey into a very shameful era.

The Supreme Court got involved and gave ethics and understanding to the way Eugenicists were treating people on the fringe of society.
Despite the documentary many Europeans were killed during these massacres as well as Indians. The director not showing the Europeans being killed is a form of selection of detail. This takes away our traditional views of Indians from the old Cowboy and Indian movies where Indians kidnapped women and children and the white people were there savior. When the Europeans settled in America they tried to recreate Britain in this land but the climate, plants and animals were totally different so they were upsetting the natural ecosystem of the land.

During this time, Russian cities were dying because all the workers and peasants were focused on rebelling against the government and seizing the land of their landlords, instead of working in the factories and living the life of a peasant or urban worker.
The high content of carbon causes global warming and global warming causes climate change. These changes are destroying our blue planet and making the ecosystem become sicker. Unfortunately, all the high content of carbon was released by human activities. We must reduce Carbon Dioxide emissions in the next two to three years, or we will lose our natural environment that we depend upon for survival. The 11th Hour shows us the consequences of irreversible global warming that have already begun to affect our life and environment.
