Film Description:In human history we have witnessed impressive natural disasters. These mis-events pale in comparison with great events in earth history. Disasters may seem dire challenges to life on earth but ultimately, they proved to be great opportunities for new forms of life to evolve. We may not want to have shared our living space with dinosaurs.
