It is hype, but that's kind of the point. If we don't start taking more care with how we treat our planet we will bring about our own extinction. Granted its a long, long way off, but the clock is ticking. To dismiss this and other warnings as just hype without any truth is being willfully ignorant, which is all too common with too many people.
